Rita Ora has opened up about her onetime relationship with Rob Kardashian.

During an in-studio appearance this week on Power 105.1's radio program The Breakfast Club, the singer was asked what exactly happened between the two of them.

"I don't want to talk about this too much because people move onward and upwards," Ora said. "But it was a phase and a moment in my life and now, you know, onward and upwards."

The 23-year-old artist continued to take the high road when the subject of an angry tweet by Kardashian, that seemed to be directed at Ora following their apparent breakup back in 2012, came up in conversation.

"I think people react to things differently and like to express their feelings in certain ways," Ora pointed out. "I don't tend to use social media, so when that whole situation happened, silence for me is the biggest form of flattery, and I love to just keep it moving, unless I need to say something."

She added, "Don't get me wrong, he's a great dude."

Meanwhile, Ora also had nothing but nice things to say about Rihanna, after it was brought up that people sometimes refer to her as being a clone of the Barbadian beauty.

"I love her," she said. "I think she's dope, and all these comparisons, it's really pretty flattering. It's better than being compared to Shrek or something like that."

Well, Rita, a big green ogre you're most certainly not.
