Dua Lipa went through ‘two years of humiliation’ after fans mocked her dancing

OHMYGOSSIP — Dua Lipa went through “two years of humiliation” after fans mocked her dancing.
The 28-year-old pop star was ridiculed following a performance of ‘New Rules’ at the 2018 Brit Awards and admitted that she didn’t get over it until she came back with her multi-award-winning album ‘Future Nostalgia’ in 2020 to get over things it but has developed a “tough skin” since becoming world-famous.
She told the Saturday Guardian magazine: “When people took that snippet of me dancing online and just turned it into a meme, and then when I won the best new artist Grammy and people were like, ‘She’s not deserving of it, she’s got no stage presence, she’s not going to stick around.’ Those things were hurtful. It was humiliating. I had to take myself off Twitter.
“The thing that made me the happiest – performing and writing songs – was also making me really upset because people were picking everything apart that I’d been working on, and I had to learn all that in front of everyone.
“In the public eye, I was figuring out who I was as an artist, as a performer.
“All that was happening while I was 22, 23 years old and still growing up. You have to build tough skin. You have to be resilient.
“[The humiliation lasted] until I finished writing ‘Future Nostalgia’ and did my first performance of ‘Don’t Start Now’, at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
“I want to say – gosh, I don’t know – two years.
“It never was like I couldn’t get out of bed because of what I thought people thought of me. I didn’t care to that degree. But that’s when it was most heightened for me.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Training Season’ hitmaker has released her third studio album ‘Radical Optimism’ ‘ and is due to headline Glastonbury over the summer but admitted that she is “not surprised” with her success because of her hard work and is more just “excited” that she has reached such heights.
Asked if she was nervous amid her “big year”, she told The Saturday Guardian magazine: “Yeah, it’s massive. Yeah. Terrified. It’s more of an inner excitement, nerves, adrenaline, ‘I can’t believe this is happening to me in my life’ terrified. [I can’t believe] just how far I’ve come. And I’ve worked my a*** off to get here! I’m not surprised. I’m just excited that I have come to this point.”
