CANNES, France (AP) — 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."
