English model turned singer Dua Lipa has been enjoying unprecedented levels of success in her career as a music artist and as a bonus has been making some friends along the way.
Dua Lipa has a diverse mix of close friends. Among these friends are the likes of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, as well as various other musicians that she has collaborated with, such as Chris Martin.
Since her debut as a musician, Lipa has participated in a number of collaborations with other artists. Seemingly Lipa’s peers in the music industry enjoy working with her, as it has resulted in the striking up of multiple friendships.
Friends and Idols
It’s not often that you are afforded the pleasure of getting to know your idols, let alone kindling a new friendship together with them. It’s a luxury that Lipa has earned for herself, however, after sharing the stage with two of her long-time favorite musicians.
After performing with Katy Perry, Lipa entered into what seems to be a close friendship with her fellow singer-songwriter. We can see the affection that the two have for each other in their rapport during an interview for V.
The other star Lipa looked up to, Taylor Swift also appears to have forged a good relationship with her. Having performed alongside her on stage at the Prime Day Amazon concert, the two can be seen sharing a quick embrace during the performance.
Lipa has had a few other interactions with Swift that hint at their friendship, including the receiving of a beautiful bouquet upon the return to her London home. The flowers that were chosen were everlasting roses, perhaps a symbolic sign of the two’s friendship.
Coldplay Connection and Other Collaborations
Lipa received some unexpected attention from Coldplay’s Chris Martin, after speaking to a woman who had worked with the band before. Lipa was advised that if she was interested in collaborating with Martin, she should try to send him some of her material.
What felt like a shot in the dark thankfully proved to be one of the most rewarding chances she had taken. Shortly after sending Martin a sample, Lipa received confirmation that he was interested in hearing more.
This new venture would lead her to her bonding with the Coldplay singer over her music, she reported that he was hooked almost immediately. Lipa looks back on the situation adoringly, reporting the fact that Martin was “dancing around the room”.
More than simply a friendship, her connection with Martin would lead her to a collaborative effort in the form of the song “Homesick”, from her self-titled album.
Chris Martin isn’t the only star that Lipa has ties with this way. Madonna, another artist that Lipa was a long-time fan of, showed a great interest in collaborating with her on a remix of “Levitating”.
“Levitating” had another artist join them, Missy Elliott. Lipa praised both artists, speaking both on Madonna’s cemented status as a pop culture icon and artist, then her respect for Elliott’s integrity for working on projects that she cares about.
Spending Time With Miley Cyrus
Lipa must really know how to make waves within the music world, having access to such a diverse range of stars. One of those stars is another wavemaker, at times notoriously so, Miley Cyrus.
The pair could be very well acquainted, musically at least, with Cyrus dropping a hint that Lipa has been somehow involved or at least witnessed some of the music that she has been producing before a public release.
They pose in an Instagram post together, both rocking a very different style yet simultaneously looking natural on the screen together. The kind of natural chemistry born from friendship, perhaps.
New Best Friend
Although your peers in the world of show-biz and those who are similarly talented and inspired as yourself are all great candidates for friendship, Lipa also found a different kind of friend, a new best friend.
Together with her boyfriend, model Anwar Hadid, the pair adopted a new puppy. They adopted the puppy from a rescue shelter in LA.
In the Instagram post of their new puppy Dexter, Lipa and Hadid can be seen with the adorable pup between them, looking happy to have found such a loving home. Lipa was equally as pleased, referring to the puppy as their “tiny best friend.”
