Dua Lipa Talks About Being Political, Explains Why She'll Always Speak Up

Dua Lipa is opening up about her political beliefs and how she will always speak up for what she believes in.

The 25-year-old Grammy-winning singer is on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s latest issue and she talked about how she’s pro-Palestine, a support of the UK’s Labour Party, and advocated for Bernie Sanders in the recent U.S. election.

“Online people are like, ‘Just shut up and sing. What do you know? Why do you care so much?’” Dua said. “But I think people forget how small our world is. And it’s getting smaller all the time.”

Dua also explained how both of her grandfathers were historians.

“My grandfather on my dad’s side was writing books about everything that was happening,” she said. “When the occupation happened, Serbian forces wanted him to rewrite history. He refused, and he lost his job. So it’s part of who I am to stand by the things I believe in.”

In the same interview, Dua defended something that she did after last year’s Grammys.
