Dua Lipa is on the cover of Elle magazine’s May 2020 issue, on newsstands on April 28.
Here’s what the 24-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag…
On releasing Future Nostalgia during the pandemic: “But I think [the leak] just kind of solidified my choice that I wanted it to be out April 3 anyway. This is me going into my celestial beliefs, but it was like, Okay, this is just how it’s meant to be. And I am really grateful that the music is out. The way I write my music, I’m always very open, and I allow myself to be vulnerable. And I feel now more than ever that it’s brought me closer to my listeners. I think it’s important to talk about your emotions and to be vulnerable and to show that you’re human.”
On her quarantine life with Anwar Hadid: “Oh my God, I’ve watched so many shows—Ozark, Tiger King, The Night Of, The Outsider, Servant, did I say Ozark? And lots of movies, too. It’s about making things fun, coming up with different recipes, trying out things that we’ve never done before. Of course Anwar misses his family, and soon we’ll hopefully get to go back and see them…but now that we get all this extra time, we’re just making the most of it. And that’s been really nice. We’re trying to see the bright side.”
On her predictions for our post pandemic existence: “I think things will definitely change. I think we’ll tread differently with Mother Nature—we won’t be as careless as we have been. I think we’ll be more empathetic and make moments count. We won’t take things for granted. I think our world is probably going to change forever.”
