Dua Lipa is optimistic 2020 will be seen as a year that changed people’s perspective on the world.
The British star spent the early height of the pandemic in lockdown in London with boyfriend Anwar Hadid before jetting off to St Lucia to quarantine so they could head to the U.S. and see his family.
However, she’s optimistic that the 780,000 deaths around the world caused by the coronavirus won’t be in vain – as it may encourage people to be more eco-friendly.
“The year started off with learning about patience, not living your life so fast, and being more open more accepting of the world, and treading more lightly with mother nature, the Earth and the way we live our lives,” she tells Britain’s Daily Star newspaper.
“Now we’re digging a lot deeper and learning that we need to educate ourselves about the injustices that exist in the world. 2020 will be seen as a year we can reflect on, we have grown as a community together, and hopefully we can continue to grow for better change.”
Dua also released her latest album, Future Nostalgia, during lockdown – with the record proving a massive hit.
