Dua Lipa has never shied away from putting women and feminism at the center of her art.
Her beautifully directed videos, like those for "New Rules" and "IDGAF," often feature a supportive girl gang clad in coordinating outfits. Now, ahead of her second album, the star has shared her thoughts on sexism and #MeToo in the May 2018 issue of British GQ.
The 22-year-old -- who once told Glamour that the future of pop music is female -- discussed with GQ how music by women is often received much differently from music by men. "For a female artist, it takes a lot more to be taken seriously if you’re not sat down at a piano or with a guitar, you know?" she told GQ.
