Dua Lipa has recently been announced as May’s cover girl for Elle Magazine in the U.S. In the interview, the “Be The One” songstress gets real about “feeling hate” and living in fear of being good enough.
“People want to stunt your growth,” Lipa told the magazine.
“They scrutinize you and tell you what you should look like or what you should do or ask why did you cut your hair?” she continued.
“You constantly live in fear of not being good enough. It’s crazy; you have to be really strong.”
She explained that there are people who claim to support feminism and mental health but act differently on social media.
“We’re in this age of ‘Feminism! You should be supporting each other!’ But it’s the same people who are saying that who are also bringing women down online,” the “New Rules” hitmaker expressed.
“And it’s the same people who speak about mental health who are also bullying others. Twitter is super-toxic. I find myself having to take time off to be able to be creative.”
In the same interview, she reveals that Katy Perry and Chris Martin told her how to handle Twitter trolls at the beginning of her career.
On the magazine cover, Dua looks absolutely stunning. She is wearing a sequined headpiece as well as a sequined dress.
