Rita Ora has been to Cannes before, but she can’t tell you much about it because it felt like a blur.

“I’ve never been to Cannes properly. I’ve been one time to perform, and then I left, so I never really experienced it,” she said.

The 23-year-old British singer was back to perform Friday night for an intimate party thrown by Belvedere Vodka. But this time around she was hoping to get a chance to enjoy more of the Riviera.

“I want to enjoy myself. We’re going to kind of get down, because we’re in Cannes,” she said before performing a selection of her hits including ‘Hot Right Now’.

The British singer has branched out into acting: She has a role is the movie ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ due out next year.

“I’ll definitely be here next year. I think Cannes is a door that I think some people should always open. I think it’s full of opportunities and you meet so many different people and you kind of get to get the vibe of it,” she said. “I’m so grateful for everything. … I’m honestly here to just learn.”
