Dua Lipa feels ‘close’ to those suffering ‘injustices’

Written by on April 28, 2024

Dua Lipa has shared that she feels “close” to those suffering “injustices”.

The New Rules hitmaker, who comes from a Kosovar family, has recalled hearing stories of war crimes from friends in Kosovo.

“I heard stories from friends (in Kosovo) who lost family members,” Dua told Elle in her recent cover story interview. “Houses burned. I saw them. When you have that direct communication with people who have been through (war), it opens up a completely new world, and it did for me.”

The Training Season singer continued, “I feel very close to (those suffering) injustices in the world, or inequality. Whether that be war, or coming out to your family, everyone’s got a different experience… It’s about support and learning together.”

Dua, 28, was born in London and moved to Kosovo with her parents when she was 11. She returned to the U.K. on her own at the age of 15 and lived with an Albanian family friend who was at university at the time.

“I said to my parents: ‘I don’t know how you let me do that,'” she told Elle. “But I knew that I didn’t have the same opportunities that I would have in Kosovo.”

The singer continued, “I was so determined. I think my parents saw parts of themselves in me, and that allowed for them to be so open-hearted and generous with that trust.”
