The Weeknd False Alarm
Rita Ora Politics Is Fun

It was recently revealed that Rita Ora had been made an honorary ambassador of her home country of Kosovo. 

Of course the world was reeling. Was Rita Ora planning a career move into politics? We mean, she can't and won't be stopped. 

The new X Factor judge and former The Voice coach has nearly exhausted all over career trajectory, what with her being an actor, model, popstar, celebrity and TV personality, so a move into world affairs seems like the obvious choice, right? 

Unfortunately, our visions of a Rita Ora lead dictatorship have been scuppered as the singer has stated that she is, in fact, NOT going into politics. 

''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," she said to The Daily Mirror

That doesn't mean that the singer isn't going to use her newly given power to do good, In fact, she wants to inspire a generation to get into politics. 

“I’ve spoken to the president and Tony Blair,” she said. “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." 

So can we expect Ora to be tearing up Westminster anytime soon to share her message? Why yes, yes we can. 

“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.”

So there we have it. 

We're also now awaiting Rita's appearance on Question Time, too.
