Born in London to Albanian parents, Dua Lipa began her music career posting videos of herself performing on YouTube. Some Chinese social media users wondered if Western pop stars would still want to tour in the country given what had happened in Ms. Lipa’s concert. The singer turned 24 years old on Thursday and celebrated her big day with Anwar Hadid.
It’s a mixture of stuff, from what it felt like to grow up as a girl and be scared to walk home at night to when the whole world lets you down and what it feels like to enjoy life again. I’m hoping to get the album out by the end of this year or the beginning of next. I haven’t decided my track list yet, but they’re all songs you can sing along to. You make music so people can sing along, but you also make it to tell a story in the hopes that someone feels the same way.
Opróćz tego do TOP10 powróciły dwa starsze albumy. Dua Lipa i jej imienne wydawnictwo awansowało trzy oczka i pojawiło się na miejscu #8, podczas gdy Sam Smith z jego Thrill Of It All wspiął się z pechowej, trzynastej pozycji na dzisiątą.
Dua Lipa last year smashed records to become the first UK female to reach more than one billion Spotify streams with a single track (New Rules). The Grammy-nominated singer songwriter has topped charts globally, and was the second most listened to female artist in the world in 2018. Central to her meteoric rise has been a commanding schedule of live shows, so it’s appropriate that Dua visits ILMC on International Women’s Day, where she, and her rock star father, Dukagjin, will be interviewed by IQ editor Gordon Masson.
They’re brutal. The trolls stateside are the worst. When I was starting out, I never remember feeling hate. Then things got big, and I felt this weird expectation of being Beyoncé already. Everything you’re doing gets looked at under a magnifying glass. People want to stunt your growth. They scrutinize you and tell you what you should look like or what you should do or ask why did you cut your hair? You constantly live in fear of not being good enough. It’s crazy; you have to be really strong. We’re in this age of Feminism! You should be supporting each other!” But it’s the same people who are saying that who are also bringing women down online. And it’s the same people who speak about mental health who are also bullying others. Twitter is super-toxic. I find myself having to take time off to be able to be creative. Don’t get me wrong, I have amazing fans and I get really nice comments, but you always think about the one bad one.
It all started a few weeks ago when the singer and YSL ambassador posted a picture of herself as a child on Instagram to celebrate hitting 30 million followers. While many followers took to the comments to say how cute she was or how little she had changed (That looks recent wtf lol” was Miley Cyrus’ contribution), a number of people began to accuse Dua of altering her lips to make them appear bigger.
But right now, Dua Lipa, queen of what she calls dark pop” and one of the most-listened-to musicians worldwide, just wishes she had an avocado masher. Or a mortar and pestle, or something. Our eggs are destined for avocado toast, but one unripe fruit won’t submit to her. I’m out here trying to mash it with a fork. Forkin’ hell!” she groans. I’ve asked her to take me through her life story, but the rigid green flesh keeps distracting her.
Dating speculation amped up after the British pop star was seen in a video of the model’s birthday celebrations. The Sun captured a video posted to Instagram showing Lipa, dressed in a skirt and tank top, laughing as Hadid held his birthday cake. Her cameo was short, but it was enough to further fuel romance rumors.
Hailing from London and born to Kosovar-Albanian parents, British vocalist and songwriter Dua Lipa is the biggest new force in pop. Multiple fan accounts are convinced that Dua Lipa will release new single “Don’t Start Now” in November.
Marking a big step in their relationship, Lipa joined Hadid and his family in attending his late grandmother’s funeral in the Netherlands. Photos published by TMZ show the pop star with Anwar and his sisters, Bella and Gigi (who was accompanied by new beau Tyler Cameron), wearing black in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Her father was a famous rockstar in Kosovo who was always playing David Bowie and Radiohead, and it was also then that she discovered her love of rap. One of the first artists she saw live was Snoop Dogg, and after that she’d spend time in her bedroom mixing her favourite songs by Pink, Nelly Furtado and Christina Aguilera with the rap music she liked.
DL Fuck yes. Anyway, we get into the venue and everything’s so magical. You were doing your cover and you were like, Who’s gonna come up with me?” and no one even pointed at me, so I was like, fuck this, I’m going up there Perry squeals. I was so excited. One of your dancers helped me up. I had to squeeze through a couple girls, climb the barrier, then your dancer pulled me up and I started dancing onstage. You were wearing this glittery blue rhinestone bodysuit and I just wanted to touch the suit.
It’s thought the pair have been pals for awhile, but Anwar swooped in on hearing news Dua was single again and romance began to spark between them. Early June 2019: Lipa splits from longtime boyfriend Isaac Carew.

I want to begin by saying how honored I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists,” Lipa said during her acceptance speech. I guess this year we really stepped up!” Calling out the man in charge would have been unimaginable career suicide for a Jessica Simpson or Christina Aguilera just 15 years ago; today, being skilled at the clapback has star-making potential.
DL I think P!nk has been able to go with the times, and stay true to herself. And everything you’ve done has been so inspiring to me, since I was really young. The most important thing is staying true to who you are musically, but growing in a really healthy way. Fans get upset if their favorite artist changes genres, but it can just be about growing with who they are as a person.
On 3 April Dua had some help from musical legend Nile Rodgers, who helped bring “live instrumentation” to her creations. Sharing a series of photos of them in the studio with her 28.2 million Instagram followers, the pop star wrote: “I want to keep you all in and part of the process so as I’m slowly going on and starting to finish songs for my next album, yesterday was truly one for the books.
DL I think I was 15 and a friend of mine surprised me with tickets for a birthday gift. I was like, Oh my God, I can’t believe it, I wanna go to the front!” We queued for quite a while at the Hammersmith Apollo. There were super-fans in gingerbread costumes with blue wigs and I was so pissed I didn’t have a wig.
Now, rehearsing at SNL, Lipa’s worries about Homesick” turn out to have merit. Legs crossed tight, back straight, she holds a cordless mic with her left hand and plants her right hand stiffly on the piano, not because it’s what feels the most natural, necessarily, but because her vocal coach, Lorna, told her that this pose would help give her strength to catapult into the song’s early, hard-to-hit high notes. The performance feels off, and, when it’s over, Lipa grimaces: One particularly high note proved irksomely out of her reach.
The star has been recording with stars like Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Diplo and Swedish pop singer Tove Lo. DUA Lipa earned almost £9million last year thanks to her rocketing music career and lucrative brand deals.
Dua, who is dating 20-year-old model Anwar Hadid, has landed further big-money deals in recent months as the face of Saint Laurent’s latest perfume and with a clothing range for Pepe Jeans.
Fans have eagerly been waiting her second full length record since her acclaimed 2017 self-titled debut , and now it looks like it could be coming any day now.
KP I think you’re learning, and it’s beautiful that your intention is to want to do everything to the best of your ability. People will see that. Even if it’s not perfect every single time, they’ll see that your heart is in it. They’ll trust that you’re not just trying to take advantage of anyone’s eyes and ears, that you really want to contribute something beautiful artistically. I still find myself, even 10 years later, constantly with the same feeling. There are not enough hours in the world to rehearse, to do this; especially when I’m putting out a record. It’s a blessing and it’s a curse, but everything in life has a positive and a negative. When you just embrace that, you’re not so hard on yourself. I see you as a real talent. Last year, I think two stars really started to shine bright: you and Cardi B. People are just getting to know and trust you; it’s going to take a little bit more time. I think you’re almost there, where you can start to answer no” every once in a while.
Dua Lipa revealed her set of freshly colored rose gold lengths this week, just after sitting front row at Yves Saint Laurent’s show with her usual femme fatale, dark blunt bob. But it wasn’t until boyfriend Hadid also took the platinum plunge—his with a slash of magenta—that the paparazzi started to take notice. Consider the move one way to cement soulmate status.
The star, who is known for her jet black short locks, took to the social media platform to show off her new look, which in Instagram pictures looks as though it is platinum blonde, with sections of black still lurking underneath. However, when she stepped out in New York with her boyfriend Anwar Hadid, her locks looked like more of a strawberry blonde colour.
Dua Lipa is one of the biggest rising stars of our time, and her style choices and beauty looks have arguably been just as talked about as her music. Right from when the singer started out, she had always seemed interested in beauty (she created an iridescent lip gloss with Mac Cosmetics back in 2017), and she has always seemed excited to change up her look. So I guess it should come as no surprise that Dua Lipa has dyed her hair blonde , debuting her incredible transformation over on her Instagram page.
Having wiped her social media in preparation of launching her second chapter, Dua Lipa has also caused speculation after being spotted filming a music video in Brooklyn, NYC for a song titled “Don’t Start Now”.
It looks like Anwar’s famous family members have given their stamp of approval, too. Both his mother, Yolanda Hadid, and his sister, Gigi Hadid, wished Dua Lipa a happy birthday on Instagram.
Oh my God, that one piece of avocado did not mash. The devil!” Lipa says, glaring at her nemesis. For someone who’s on the brink of becoming the world’s biggest pop star, she’s delightfully candid and, dare I say, normal? Case in point: She still avails herself to speak with journalists, no holds barred—and to feed them, too.

Couples who style their hair together, stay together? From Johnny and Winona to Gwyneth and Brad, famous duos have long declared their love for one another with a matching cut. Today, singer Dua Lipa and her beau Anwar Hadid —who have been known to match on the sartorial front—are the latest love birds to share a twinning beauty look, stepping out in New York City’s Soho with a matching dye job to rival any ’90s It couple.
Lipa laughs in Hadid’s arms at the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park on July 6. Dua Lipa says her new album is “coming soon” – and it “feels like a dancercise class”.
Lipa starts into Homesick,” a wounded ballad she wrote with Martin, which is far and away the sparest song in her catalog – a slow, spotlit showcase for her rich, smoky voice, whereas most of her songs tend toward brash, uptempo thumpers. Lipa’s day-to-day manager, Jules, aims his phone at a monitor, shooting video of the rehearsal for reference, because Lipa’s plan is to sit on the piano near-motionless for the entire song, and although she hopes this will register as subtly powerful, she also worries it might just come off as inert.
When she stepped out with boyfriend Anwar Hadid in New York City on Wednesday, it was clear that the bottom of her tresses are still brunette, giving Lipa an edgy peek-a-boo ‘do.
Dua Lipa (born 22 August 1995) is an English singer and songwriter. After working as a model she signed with Warner Music Group in 2015 and soon released her first song, “New Love”.
DL I did a BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge of my song IDGAF,” and I hadn’t actually met Zara Larsson before, but I just messaged her—we’d been friends on social media—and was like, Hey, do you want to come down and sing this song with me?” Then I asked Charli XCX and MØ and Alma, and I was like, Why don’t you guys come down and sing this song with me?” It’s nice to come together with other girls in the industry. It’s interesting to see people just hanging out. For so many years, the media has kind of pitted girls against each other. From so early on, I’ve dealt with some people not being nice, or not being too happy about my success. That sometimes comes with the territory. But it’s important to also be happy for people. You do your thing and I’ll do mine. It is what it is.
