Dua Lipa To Sing With Joni Mitchell?
Speaking on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast show, Lipa – who is promoting her new single, Houdini – revealed, “It was absolutely amazing! Quite unexpected, it was backstage at the Dodger’s Stadium when I went on to perform with Elton… He was like “come here and sit down” and it was Joni Mitchell and Kiki Dee and Brandi Carlile and we were all just on a sofa and I was like ‘I have no idea what I’m doing here’! Honestly, it felt like such a dream and [Joni] was amazing. She was like, “you have to come down”, she does these Joni Jams at her house, and she has lots of people come down and sing. And I was like, you know what? That’s something I would love… I haven’t had the opportunity to yet but that’s definitely going to be a bucket list evening for me.”
Lipa went on to talk about the prospect of being a role model for a generation of younger women, “It’s amazing! It’s an amazing feeling. And it makes me want to do better and be better. I think about those things. I also think about those things because I have ‘older sister syndrome’ anyway! Like, I always think about trying to be there for my little brother and sister and what they think, and how I can be there to support them. So doing this, I think I have big sister energy overall, maybe in my music as well!”
When presenter Ball brought up the subject of Glastonbury – where Lipa has been rumoured to be headlining this year – the singer gave little away, saying, “It’s my favourite festival, I’ll probably go to hang out.”
