Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 20) — Catriona Gray is just in the early part of her reign as Miss Universe 2018. But the 25-year-old Filipino-Australian beauty already has a plan once she bids farewell to her crown.

Gray, who is back in the country for her homecoming, on Wednesday said she wants to pursue a music career after her Miss Universe reign.

"There's so many things that I'm passionate about, one of them is definitely music, so after my reign as Miss Universe I would like to pursue music," she said during the press conference for her grand homecoming events scheduled on Thursday, February 21.

"Perhaps be able to write my own songs, collaborate with other artists, and put some music out there for the world to hear," she added.

Gray is the fourth Filipino to win the coveted title. She was hailed as Miss Universe 2018 last December 23 in Bangkok, Thailand.
