Dua Lipa says bullying 'messed with her mental health'

Dua Lipa says bullying 'messed with her mental health'

She also didn't keep her thoughts about 'cancel culture' and criticism in social media.

The 25 year old singer rocketed to fame and becoming a worldwide popstar came with a price: bullying and criticism, especially in social media.

“I experienced a sh*t tonne at the end of my first record", she confessed in a recent interview with Attitude magazine. Also, she revealed that it gave her anxiety, made her upset and made her "feel like [she] wasn’t good enough".

Mean comments online challenged her at the poing that they started messing with her mental health: "I’d go on stage and if somebody was filming me, in my head, I wasn’t, like, ‘Oh, they’re filming me because they want to keep it.’ I was like, ‘They’re going to film it so they can laugh at me or something.”

Although the 'Physical' singer went to a hard time, this kind of situations helped her get a rougher skin: "It was a tough time, but I’m also so grateful for the experience because I became so much stronger. I became so much more confident after that."

Cancel culture is dangerous and toxic

Lipa also talked against the 'cancel culture' and commented that "there should be a communal understanding that people make mistakes". "I think there is so much judgement and meanness… cancel culture is so dangerous and toxic", she confessed.
