Rita Ora celebrated her birthday with a topless photo on Tuesday (Nov 26).

The 'Radioactive' hitmaker, who turned 23 yesterday, shared the tantalising picture on her Instagram account with only a large black cushion covering her modesty.

Rita struck a pose for the camera by holding up the home furnishing, which was emblazoned with the words, "I'm a f***ing...", followed by a star.

She captioned the picture: "Birthday girl!! ...today I'm allowed to be A F***ING STAR! Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and I love you!!!! (sic)"

Sporting her trademark blonde locks and red lipstick, the 'R.I.P.' singer appeared to be feeling much better after collapsing on the set of a photo shoot for Madonna's Material Girl fashion line in Miami last week.

The star also got into the philanthropic spirit on her birthday by urging her loyal fans to donate to cancer charity The Royal Marsden in lieu of sending her gifts.

She wrote on Twitter: "I'm using my bday to raise money for @royalmarsden! Give a gift and donate to help cancer patients (sic)"

Meanwhile, Ora's boyfriend, Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, flew 15,000 miles to spend the night with her.

The mixmeister reportedly racked up the air miles in a "desperate" bid to join the 'Radioactive' singer for her Studio 54-themed 23rd birthday party at London's nightspot The Box club on Tuesday night (Nov 26).

Calvin flew an initial 5,000 miles from Los Angeles to party with Rita and pals until 5am before hopping on another 10,000 mile flight from London to Sydney where he headlined Australia's Stereosonic festival.

A source told The Mirror newspaper: "Calvin was desperate to see Rita on her birthday, even though their schedules saw them on opposite sides of the globe. So he booked flights to make sure he could spend the whole day with her, flying into London for just 24 hours."

Rita was reportedly "delighted" by the grand gesture from her boyfriend of six-months, who lavished her with expensive gifts including a Playstation 4 games console and a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes.

The source continued: "They made the most of their time together, staying out until 5am before heading back for an afterparty together, but just hours later he had to get on another flight. Rita was delighted that he made such a special effort for her."

Rita had thrown a joint bash with her stylist Kyle De'volle at posh restaurant Hakkasan before heading to The Box where she was joined by Kelly Brook and Rizzle Kicks, but her best pal Cara Delevingne did not make an appearance.
