The ‘R.I.P.’ singer is planning to one day return to higher education to fulfil a promise she made to her parents after she got signed by a record label aged 18 dropped her plans to study for a degree in the UK.
In an interview on British TV show ‘Lorraine’, she said: “I got my first production credit when I was 14 and then it kind of escalated from there. I got signed at 18 so it came to the point where I could either finish university, or I could carry on and finish university later, which I promised my dad I would do, so I will do it.”
Rita was born in the Balkan state of Kosovo, but grew up in London, although she recently returned there to film the video to her new single, ‘Shine Ya Light’, which she is particularly proud of.
She added: “It was definitely the experience of my life, because I was born there, and it’s a third world country and I wanted to show the world where I come from. It was my idea to do the video.”
Rita, 21, also a talked about her stint as a judge on UK pop star search show ‘The X Factor’, on which she sat on the panel for some of the initial auditions this year.
She said: “It was interesting, because I never understood it until I was sat there. I’d always watched it, but I don’t think anyone knows what it’s like until you sit on the panel.
“So I sat there and I really thought that I could help somebody, it was a great feeling. I’ve never auditioned in front of millions of people, but I’ve auditioned for a few things.
“The good thing was I could just say yes to people that I loved, then I didn’t have to do the boot camp, so wouldn’t have to [let them down later]. But it was such a fun experience.”

Rita Ora would “100 per cent” like to design her own clothing collection.
The 21-year-old singer explained how she plans to move into designing in the future.
Rita, who is the protégée of Jay-Z, is so dedicated to fashion that she will put her music on hold when the time is right.
“Ah, 100 per cent!” Rita squealed to the December edition of British Vogue. “But if I were to do that, I would literally just do a clothing line, I wouldn’t do an album. I would concentrate. Maybe after about seven albums or something. “I would do everything from, from the stitching to the catwalk. I wouldn’t want to do an average fashion line. I’d want it to be an amazing piece of art.”
Rita is known for her individual sense of style.
The pop star doesn’t think about her outfits too much, she just enjoys putting her ensembles together.
“Clothes are fun,” Rita laughed. “The designers have so much fun making them, you should have fun wearing them too.”
Rita went on to discuss where her passion for fashion came from.
She described how she began customising her wardrobe as a teenager and admitted some of her early creations were questionable.
“I would mix and match clothes, a £2 T-shirt, vintage stuff. I knew about the high-end clothes, but I never had money to get them. So I’d make them. I’d get clothes and cut them up,” Rita explained.
“I knew where I was going with it, it just didn’t look how I imagined.”
