Rita Ora has heaped praise on Beyonce, insisting the singer is a "superwoman" for successfully juggling her stellar career with motherhood.
The How We Do hitmaker has grown close to the Crazy in Love star since singing on to Roc Nation, the label run by Beyonce's rapper husband Jay-Z.
Ora reveals she sat down with her idol, who gave her advice on how to survive in the music industry - and the newcomer admits she hopes to achieve as much in her private and professional lives as her superstar mentor.
She tells London's Evening Standard, "One minute I'm singing Destiny's Child's Say My Name in my dad's pub and the next I'm sitting here asking Beyonce, does she think this song is right for my album?
"The first time I met her I was so nervous. I hugged her and told her she was my inspiration. She's a superwoman with a career and a family. I hope one day I can do the same - baby in one arm, microphone in the other.
"Beyonce was, and she still is, such an inspiration. She's been in the game for so long you think she's older but she's only 30."
