Rita Ora not planning politics

Rita Ora doesn't want to be a politician.

The 'Poison' hitmaker has been named as an honorary ambassador of Kosovo, her home country, but has insisted she has no plans to leave music for politics.

She said: "I'm not a politician. I'm going to do what I've been doing as a musician and be aware, give a positive message. I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes.

"What we're trying to do is blur the social/cultural barriers we have, because right now with social networks, there really isn't any barrier within the countries, like Brazil and Kosovo. It's almost like all of our problems have merged into one. What I'm trying to do is make our generation be aware of what, politically, we can do as a team to change our future."

And the 24-year-old beauty believes young people should be encouraged to engage in the political world more too.

She added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Sometimes people vote more for a singer to win an award than for their prime minister. If parliament would have me, I'd talk to them."

Meanwhile, Rita previously admitted she found it very "emotional" being given the honour.

She gushed: "It was a very emotional day for me because we've been waiting as a nation for this for such a long time. So I think to hear it in real life it just really hit a nerve."
