The singer admitted that she was tired of prejudice in society.

In an interview with Attitude Magazine, 25-year-old British singer Dua Lipa spoke about how she and other women have to deal with sexist attitudes towards themselves. According to Lipa, many people face this, feeling constant pressure and anxiety due to the fact that they need to prove something to others. This is especially true of those who themselves write poetry for compositions.

So, when creating her debut album, Dua felt the need to declare herself and that she “will not just sit and wait for songs to be written to her.” “To be taken seriously, you need to work much more,” the artist says.

She also recalled a case when the director asked her to wear a skirt while filming a video, as it is more pleasant to see a young singer in a revealing outfit. But Lipa refused and chose long trousers for work, telling the director that it was cold on the set and she would not risk her health for the sake of self-admiration.

In the interview, Dua also touched on the topic of LGBT people. She admitted that she considers it her duty to fight for the rights of gay people. At the same time, the singer emphasizes that it is “very difficult for her to call herself a gay icon,” as she is sometimes mentioned in the press.
