Rita Ora wants to be ''in love''.

The 'Black Widow' songstress - who is rumoured to be dating the rapper Ricky Hilfiger - has admitted that she is ready to love again after splitting from DJ Calvin Harris in June.

Opening up about her personal life in Teen Vogue's November issue, Rita said: ''Without complaining, without being moany, because this is what I have wanted to do all my life, I think it's that people may forget I'm just a 23-year-old girl who wants to be in love.

''And even though I live and breathe my job, I still want someone to want me. That's how every girl feels.''

Rita hit the headlines in June when she split from Calvin and things quickly turned sour between the two after he reportedly banned her from singing his song, 'I Will Never Let You Down' at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.

She appeared to refer to their relationship as she added: ''It's like, Will I ever love someone as much as I loved that person?

''You will. You won't forget how you felt, but you will love someone else again.''
