Dua Lipa was “fuelled” by haters after Best New Artist win in 2019

May 2nd, 2024

Dua Lipa has reflected on the hate she received after winning the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2019 – see what she had to say below.

Last night (May 1), Apple Music released Dua Lipa’s near hour-long chat with Zane Lowe to speak of her upcoming third album, ‘Radical Optimism’, which is due for release on Friday, May 3 (pre-order/pre-save here).

During her chat with Lowe, Dua Lipa spoke about overcoming criticism over the course of her career, particularly after she won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2019. Lipa said to Lowe: “I think everything comes in stages and waves. There can be a moment where people really love you and you feel so supported and you’re like, ‘Oh, this is great.’ Especially in the beginning. I was doing interviews and people were like, ‘How do you deal with hate?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t get any hate. It’s great.’ And then that changed really quickly.”

In the closing minutes of her chat with Zane Lowe, she referenced her Best New Artist win, recalling: “There were people online being like, ‘She’s not deserving of it. She’s got no stage presence. She can’t do this. She’s not well- equipped to, she won’t be here next year’. “There was a lot of that. That fuelled me in a way.”

She then revealed how she copes with criticism: “I just go, ‘OK, all of this is background noise and I should just stick on my path,” the “Training Season” musician said. “Because every time someone has doubted me, I’ve proved them wrong. And for me, I’m like, this is fueling me. This is pushing me to be better, to work hard. And I get a real kick out of proving people wrong.”

Dua Lipa most recently released the album’s third single, ‘Illusion’. She dropped the album’s first single ‘Houdini’ in early November last year, followed by ‘Training Season’, which she debuted at the Grammys earlier this year.

In March, it was confirmed that Lipa will headline Glastonbury 2024 alongside Coldplay and SZA. She is reportedly set to capture her visit to Worthy Farm for a new documentary film.

She also announced a one-off concert at the historic Royal Albert Hall in London for this autumn, as well as a run of European shows for this summer.
