Dua Lipa reveals her songs are inspired by ‘terrible’ exes


    Dua Lipa has revealed that her award-winning music has been inspired by her ‘terrible’ ex-boyfriends.

    Dua Lipa, 22, has revealed that her smash hit songs have been inspired by former boyfriends in a new interview.

    Dua said her inspiration ranged from “emotionally manipulative” to “terrible” ex-lovers in an interview with Rolling Stone.

    She told the magazine: “[Some were] emotionally manipulative. ‘And then] I dated this guy who literally would never eat a single vegetable. I was like, ‘This is terrible. You eat like a five-year-old. I’m f**king out.’ ”

    The BRIT Award winner also said that her hit song ‘Hotter Than Hell’ was inspired by an ex-boyfriend and blogging site Tumblr.

    She explained: “I was going through a tough breakup. Someone who made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. But when I wrote this song, I wanted it to seem like he couldn’t get enough of me.

    “The song was good, but the chorus wasn’t quite there. We were like, ‘Let’s scrap it.’ And I was scrolling through Tumblr, and I see the words ‘Hotter than Hell’ in red on a black background. And I go, ‘That’s cool!’ What if he thought I was hotter than hell, and I just didn’t want him?”

    Dua Lipa won a BRIT award for British female solo artist this week, Dua thanked “every single female that has been on this stage before me, that has given girls like me – not just girls in the music industry – but girls in society, a place to be inspired by, to look up and have allowed us to dream this big”.

    She also added: “Here’s to more women on these stages, more women winning awards and more women taking over the world.”
