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."
