Rita Ora has revealed she wanted perform a sexy kiss with Iggy Azalea at the VMAs - but Iggy turned her down.

The 23-year-old Brit delivered a sizzling performance of Black Widow with the Australian singer at the MTV Music Video Awards 2014, wearing matching webbed catsuits.

But Rita told The Sun she had hoped to emulate Britney Spears and Madonna's infamous on-stage snog during the show - and Iggy, 24, said no.

Rita revealed: "I said to Iggy we should just make out on stage, kiss during our performance. She told me that would be crazy, because it's already been done.

"Britney Spears and Madonna kissing was my favourite VMA performance ever."

Rita - who has a role in the upcoming raunchy Fifty Shades Of Grey movie - admitted she was relieved Iggy was able to perform with her at all, after she tumbled off stage at a VMA warm-up gig in LA.

The Hot Right Now star said: "Bless, her, I was just happy she was OK because, God forbid, we couldn't perform after all that.

"We've been doing three performances a day together to make sure when we release this song it was about unity.

"We wanted to do a song where it's two blondes coming together as a unit."
