Dua Lipa is fast becoming one of the hottest pop stars in the world today, but she recently took some time off from her world tour to share a video of herself wearing little more than a bikini top.
The video, which was shared on the “Scared to be Lonely” singer’s Instagram, and she covered the barely-there polka-dotted string bikini top with a floral printed shirt.
Showing off her taut tummy and toned frame, Dua Lipa looked relaxed and happy, and based on the comments on her Instagram, her fans seemed to be happy for her, too.
Check out the video below.
According to Billboard Magazine, Dua Lipa has every reason to take some time for herself: her hit single, “New Rules,” has tied Edwin McCain’s “I’ll Be” for the longest song ever on the Pop Charts. Both songs were on the Pop Charts for a grand total of 41 weeks. If the song remains on the charts for any more weeks, she will break and supersede that record.
Per Billboard, in addition to “New Rules” and “I’ll Be,” other songs that have been on the Pop Charts for a record-breaking number of weeks include Goo Goo Dolls’ “Slide” and “Iris” (both in 1998-99) and Real McCoy’s “Another Night” (1994-95). The final three songs were only on the Pop Charts for 39 weeks.
Dua Lipa is the only other woman besides Iggy Azalea to chart three songs simultaneously in the Pop Songs chart’s top 15. In addition to “New Rules,” “One Kiss,” with Calvin Harris, and her own “IDGAF” currently sit at numbers 14 and 15, respectively, on the Pop Charts.
But not all of the news around Dua Lipa is good news. According to CapitalFM, the singer’s boyfriend, Isaac Carews, has just responded to allegations that he cheated on the singer after he was caught getting cozy with another woman in a nightclub.
Carews, who is a chef and who recently rekindled his relationship with the singer, claims that he and the singer are the “victims of the tabloid media,” who are “paid to create drama.” He said that even though he and the singer were broken up at the time the footage was shot, he wasn’t doing anything more than talking loudly in the other woman’s ear.
I wouldnt want you to think that Dua is in a relationship with someone who doesnt love and respect her. She wouldn’t stand for it. Both Dua and I have fallen into the hands of tabloids causing drama and linking us to different people when there is simply nothing there. I’m in a gay bar dancing with a friend and its been shown in a bad light. There was no kissing and im disappointed at myself for even dancing for a brief moment given the way it was portrayed. It was a loud club and i was talking to her in her ear. Don’t believe everything you see because these people are paid to create drama. We are very happy being back together. We spent 3 and half years happily together with loyalty and love and we never broke up in the first place because we had problems like that. We broke up because of scheduling conflicts and not being able to be together. Luckily our skin is tougher and love is stronger than this.
For her part, Dua Lipa recently Tweeted a message about love, saying that when love doesn’t go your way, “its not the end it just builds you up for your perfect future. It’s waiting for you.”
