Rita Ora - Rita Ora to go back to university

Rita Ora is planning on going back to university.

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.''
