R.I.P hitmaker Rita Ora was ''scared'' before she met her ''idol'' Beyoncé.

The 23-year-old star, who signed with Jay Z's Roc Nation in 2009, admits that Queen Bey was even cooler than she expected.

Speaking to Heat magazine, Ora said: ''Oh my gosh, I was so scared. She's like the idol I've always wanted to meet. I always thought she wasn't human and that she just plugged herself into a socket at night and sleeps standing up, or something. But she was incredible - so kind, so honest, so caring and so approachable.''

Ora, who has landed her big Hollywood break with a role in the film adaptation of the best-selling book Fifty Shades of Grey, explained that her co-star Jamie Doran is extremely down-to-earth.

She added: "It was incredible, cause his wife was there and he just had a kid so it was a very family orientated kind of thing, obviously when it's on set the kid stays at home.''
