R+B star Brandy's little brother Ray J is hoping the people of his native Carson, California will forget about his recent sex tape controversy and elect him the town's next mayor.
The singer/actor has huge political ambitions and his leaked sex tape, in which he cavorted with socialite Kim Kardashian, wrecked his bid to become Carson's mayor this year (07) - but he isn't giving up.
He tells Sister 2 Sister magazine, "I might do it at the next election and let all of this controversy die down and then hit them harder.
"I want people to look at other things besides rapping and singing... That's why I didn't run for mayor this year... I think I can still win.
"I've been through the ups and downs in Carson. They need somebody young, not only to make a statement and win all eyes from all over the world... I can bring all of the youth into being inspired to do something different in life."
And Carson will only be the first stop: "Young people 18 and older don't vote. When I get people to start voting and start uplifting themselves in the political side of life... I'm making a change in the world.
"I'm going to keep going. I'm going for president of the United States of America."
