Remember when we showed you the ‘hope’ finger tattoo Rita got last week in anticipation of the Brit awards?

Well, seeing as the singer failed to win an award in either of the two categories she was nominated in, she is now claiming that she chose to get the inking in celebration of being nominated rather than because she assumed she would win.

Speaking to Metro, the Hot Right Now singer said:

It was because I got nominated for the Brits. Just being nominated for the Brits is such a big deal for me.

A ‘hope’ tattoo celebrating a nomination you already got? Hoping for what else exactly?

I’m not convinced.

The singer also didn’t do well in the style stakes on Wednesday night with both of the dresses she chose to wear failing to impress.


Rita turned up on the red carpet in a Gucci couture peach gown featuring an absurd ruffle at the back.

She then changed in to a black sequined dress with hip high split for the after party.


… Well, there’s always next year Rita.
