Grammys 2019: Pop star Dua Lipa crowned as Best New Artist

Postado Fevereiro 13, 2019

"Oh my goodness, thank you so much", Dua said.

Dua Lipa is nominated this year for Best Dance Recording (for "Electricity") and-cue that feeling when the universe gets something right-Best New Artist.

From so-tall-they're-practically-pants boots to a new obsession with giant fluffy hats, Dua Lipa has been serving us some serious looks this year.

The comment was seen as a jibe at Neil Portnow, the Grammys president, who drew criticism previous year when he responded to comments about the lack of female winners by saying that women needed to "step up". "It's a change we hope to see for many years to come", Lipa said. She followed that up with "One Kiss", a collaboration with hitmaker Calvin Harris that also reached the top spot in the U.K. In February 2018, Lipa won two Brit Awards for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

As Lipa went backstage after her Grammy win, she took the time to clarify her "stepped up" comments.

"It's a big difference from the previous years and I feel so grateful to be a part of the nominations when they came out on December 7, I believe, and to see so many women on it - I was like, This is unbelievable".

Dua Lipa was on FIRE last night at The Grammys.
