She’s currently setting the stage alight with her chart-topping songs on her world tour. And Dua Lipa made sure to turn up the heat as she belted out her smash hits to a sell-out crowd at the Alexandra Palace in London on Friday. Not afraid to bare all, the 22-year-old pop princess sizzled in plunging red lingerie, which flaunted her ample cleavage and rippling abs. Dua exuded confidence in her scanty ensemble, throwing a decadent white blazer over her svelte figure.
The New Rules hit maker slipped her statuesque frame into pair of form-fitting midnight blue slacks for her performance. Belting out her smash-hits, Dua added some glittering accents to her flirty look with layered gold chains, while minimalist make-up allowed her natural glow to shine through.
The songstress’ cropped brunette locks featured an effortless wave as she shimmied through her effervescent musical set. In February, the artist was recognised at the BRIT Awards and she took home British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough. Dua recently spoke to Teen Vogue about the misconceptions she’s gets from her number one record New Rules, with men believing that she ‘hates them’ because of her songwriting.
The talented artist, who talks female empowerment in her tunes, tells the magazine that ‘a lot of men come up to me and say, “You really hate men, don’t you?”‘ She explains: ‘That’s a total misconception. Some of the songs are unfiltered, and I don’t hold back.’
Dua also talked about her compeтιтive nature, but says she ‘feel like I’m more compeтιтive with myself.’ The songstress added: ‘I was always want to do better than I did yesterday.’ Dua was born in London on August 22, 1995; her and her Albanian parents moved to Pristina, Kosovo when she was 11 years old.
The brunette beauty, who just released the single One Kiss with Calvin Harris, says she ‘would love to keep doing this and keep being really honest.’ Dua continued: ‘I want to keep not being afraid of my own thoughts.’
In her catchy tune New Rules, belts out advice to her fans, which includes things like ‘One, don’t pick up the phone – they’re only calling because they’re drunk and alone. Two, don’t let them in – you don’t want to deal with the drama of throwing them out again. And three, don’t be their friend – we all now where that ends up.’
She told the magazine that the most important rule that she didn’t include in the hit song was to ‘quite frankly block them on social media.’ New Rules has been streamed more than 1.1 billion times on YouTube and dozens of awards, including going double platinum in the US, Italy, Spain, UK, Belgium and New Zealand. Dua revealed that her inspiration for the New Rules video came from a vintage Versace ad featuring Naomi Campbell.
