Dua Lipa has opened up about how her new song “Boys Will Be Boys” raises the issue of sexual harassment head-on. Dua has also revealed that the track details just what it’s like being a girl and having to “avoid confrontation from men and sexual harassment.”
She told sources, “It’s about the growing pains of what it’s like to be a girl. For me, that was walking home from school and putting keys through my knuckles … So much of the human experience for women revolves around men; how they make us feel, whether that is good or bad … Girls have to go through so much. You cover up yourself to avoid confrontation from men, avoid sexual harassment, people throwing words or catcalling. We change our ways to fit somebody else’s lifestyle. It’s really sad.”
“But I would love to sign artists at some point, support young girls in the industry. That’s a really big dream of mine.”
Dua, whose album leaked online over the weekend, also admitted that she wants to keep making music for as long as she is hungry for it and also shared her dream to one day start her own record label for women.
The singer confirmed that her next single from her new album ‘Future Nostalgia’ will be called “Break My Heart.” The single, which arrives next Friday (March 27), follows “Don’t Start Now” and “Physical.” Lipa’s second album ‘Future Nostalgia’ drops on April 3.
