Madonna Told Rita Ora to Get Down and Pray with Her During Their "Very Awkward" First Meeting

"It's a blessing to be out here and just working with everything going on," Rita Ora said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as she live-streamed from a room in Australia. After which, Fallon asked Ora if she had ever been completely starstruck by a celebrity, and the "Bang" singer confessed that she had a "very awkward" but "very unbelievable" encounter with Madonna.

"She really just made me find my light, and by doing that, we had to kneel on the floor," Ora said. "And I thought it was 'Like a Prayer', in real life that was happening to me. I had to go breath in the bathroom before I actually did meet her. This was earlier in my career, and I was doing a campaign for her, a clothing line. And she came to meet me, and I loved it, and I just couldn't breath. And she was like, 'This is not my light, let's get down', and I thought — what? what's happening? And so I did, anything she said we're going to do."
