Rita Ora and Calvin Harris ended their relationship back in June.

Although they both took to social media to confirm their split, neither have had much to say about the demise of their love affair - until now.

During an interview with Cosmopolitan, the 23-year-old singer opened up about her split from the Scottish singer-songwriter.

She admitted they were both going in different directions, due to their hectic schedules and career aspirations.

"It was the right guy at the wrong time," she explained. "I was about to start a tour, and he was also all over the place. There's only so much you can do when you don't see each other."

Rita, who previously dated Bruno Mars and Rob Kardashian, also cited distance as one of the main reasons for the break-up with the famed DJ/producer.

While the British singer admires those who do have the ability to make long distance relationships work, she admitted she's just not one of those people.

"I really admire people who have long-distance relationships," she added. "It's an incredible achievement. I couldn't do it."

Since many celebrity relationships have ended bitterly this year, most fans assumed they also ended on bad terms. However, the "I Will Never Let You Down" singer revealed their split was relatively amicable and she doesn't have any ill feelings toward him.

Now, her main focus is her career. She went on to dish about the widely popular feminist anthem she's featured on with Australian female rapper, Iggy Azalea. Rita gushed about the chart-topping record, "Black Widow."

"As soon as I heard it, I was like, 'This is the f--king song,'" she said of the song. "Katy Perry co-wrote it — it felt nice to have all women involved."

As the interview continued, things got a bit heated as the conversation took a turn toward sexuality. The "R.I.P." singer revealed how her confidence has improved over time. She also shared her perspective of sexuality.

"You have to come to terms with loving your body," Rita explained.

"Stand naked in front of the mirror and say, 'I'm f--king sexy.' That's where it starts. I'm very proud to say that I think about sex," she confessed. "It's what everybody thinks about, whether they say it or not. For me, sex is a form of getting to know a person—feeling someone's skin."
