Dua Lipa, “I’ve Definitely Grown Up”
Dua Lipa has spoken about post-pandemic touring, her new direction and independence in a new interview with Vogue.
Asked whether she feels that she has outgrown the songs on Future Nostalgia that – due to the global pandemic – she is only just able to perform live, the singer said, “For two years we were frozen. I didn’t get to really do these songs in the way that I’d envisioned them, and now that I’ve been able to put a show around it, it feels new to me. But there are also ways I feel I’m moving on a little bit. Especially now that I’ve started writing again and working on new music.”
Introducing the real @DuaLipa. “It’s about understanding what I want,” she says.

When asked about new material and how it might depart from her previous work, Dua Lipa revealed, “I’ve definitely grown up. Overall, whether it’s sonically or in terms of the themes, I’ve matured. It’s like I’m coming into my power and not afraid to talk about things. It’s about understanding what I want.”
The singer also spoke about the importance of independence, suggesting, “The next chapter of my life is about truly being good with being alone.” Dua took herself out on a date for the second installment of her Service95 newsletter and considered it a significant step, “Some people on the internet were like, ‘Oh, Dua went out for dinner on her own, blah blah, I do this all the time.’ And I think that’s amazing if you do it all the time. You must be so confident. But it was a big step for me. I was nervous—like, what am I gonna do? I don’t want to be on my phone.” Her next planned solo adventure is to go to the movies. “I want to know I can just be there for myself, you know?”
