Roc Nation‘s pop singer Rita Ora covers the April 2015 issue of InStyle UK.

This is the British singer’s debut cover and inside she talks about rejections, what it’s like being a coach on The Voice, Fifty Shades of Grey role, and more.

Below is a sneak peek of what she reveals in her InStyle April cover interview…

On rejection:

‘I’ve been told “no” so many times in my career. It doesn’t mean it’s over… I can remember every single “no” I’ve been told in my life. They do not leave my brain. But they build you up.’

On her Fifty Shades of Grey role:

‘I heard about the audition and I approached Sam Taylor-Johnson with ideas for the soundtrack. I said I’d love to involved as I was such a fan of the book. And then Sam said, “Well, why don’t you audition?” And I said, “Sure…I’ve got a few song ideas, I could send them over…” and she said, “No, why don’t you audition for the movie?” And I was like, “What?” I’ve done a bit of acting, but honestly didn’t expect to be put into that role. I thought, what have I got to lose? I auditioned like everybody else – there were a lot of other people in the frame. I didn’t get any special treatment. I perfected my American accent, one thing led to another, and I got it.’

On being a coach on The Voice:

‘I said no straightaway. I love the show, but I wanted to focus on my second album. And then I spoke to Will [fellow judge Will.i.am], and he said “Listen, if you don’t do it, I won’t do it.” It’s actually the best decision I’ve made. It’s so fun. I love it. I’m learning a lot about myself, being a coach. I’m starting to trust my instincts. When you’re sitting in that chair, you can’t ask what anyone thinks, you just have to do it.’
