Rita Ora wants to be a Bond girl, sing the theme

RITA Ora wants to be the first woman to play a Bond girl and sing the a 007 theme song.

The 'Body On Me' singer has aspirations to bag two of the top jobs in the prestigious spy franchise and is confident she could pull it off.

Quizzed at the KISS Haunted House Party at the SSE Wembley Arena in London on Thursday (29.10.15) on whether she'd prefer to act or sing for Bond, Rita replied: "I'd rather sing the theme but has anybody done both? Maybe. Maybe I'll do both!"

If she realises her dream, Rita - who appeared in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Southpaw' this year - would be the first official title singing Bond girl, but she wouldn't be the first title track contributor to appear in a film.

Madonna recorded the theme song for 2002 film 'Die Another Day' and also had a cameo as fencing instructor Verity.

Sam Smith penned 'Writing's On The Wall' for current 007 adventure 'SPECTRE' and the song has become the first Bond theme to reach the number one spot in the UK.

Although Rita is busy with her judging role on 'The X Factor', getting ready to release her second album and dreaming of becoming a Bond babe, the 24-year-old pop beauty still sets new goals for herself and she wants to duet with Celine Dion, Cher, Gwen Stefani and David Bowie.

When asked who she'd love to collaborate with, she said: "Probably like Celine Dion or Cher, or David Bowie or someone like, I don't know, just one of my legends that I've always loved growing up. Maybe Gwen Stefani, she'd be cool.
