In a recent sighting, she was spotted lounging in a Versace dress, a brand that she has frequently donned in the past for red carpet events and magazine photoshoots.
This update comes after the dismissal of the copyright infringement case against Lipa’s hit song ‘Levitating’.
The popular track from 2020 faced accusations of plagiarizing Artikal Sound System’s reggae single ‘Live Your Life’ released in 2017, resulting in a lawsuit against the singer and her label, Warner Records.
Artikal Sound System claimed that Lipa and her team had heard their song and replicated it without permission in ‘Levitating’. However, US District Judge Sunshine Sykes ruled on June 7, stating that there was insufficient evidence to prove that Dua and her team had access to the band’s song, as reported by Reuters.
While the band has the option to file a new lawsuit if they choose, their attorney, Stewart Levy, has mentioned that they are currently considering their next steps.
Additionally, the judge denied their request to transfer the case from Los Angeles to New York, where another ‘Levitating’ copyright case involving songwriters Sandy Linzer and L. Russell Brown will be addressed.
The couple has alleged that Dua Lipa’s songs “Wiggle And Giggle All Night” from 1979 and “Don Diablo” from 1980 bear similarities to her chart-topping hit. According to documents obtained by Billboard, the signature melody is the most recognizable part of the disputed songs and plays a crucial role in their popularity. The duo claims that Dua intentionally imitated past eras without giving credit to the original creators. They argue that Dua and Warner have infringed upon their intellectual property and are seeking legal action to hold them accountable. DaBaby, the rapper featured on a remix of “Levitating,” is also named in the lawsuit. Dua has expressed surprise at the success of “Levitating” and admitted that it influenced the direction of her album. Additionally, Dua Lipa has recently revealed feeling hurt by the UK Government’s rhetoric towards Albanian migrants.
The pop sensation known for her hit “Levitating” was born in London to parents of Kosovan-Albanian descent. She expressed her frustration with government officials, particularly Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who made derogatory remarks about “Albanian criminals” during discussions about immigration last year.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, Dua shared her personal experience and feelings about the comments. She admitted that these words had a profound impact on her. Growing up in London, she believed the city was a melting pot of diverse cultures, and these comments seemed contradictory to that belief. It was disheartening for her to hear the government talk about Albanians in such a negative way.
Dua argued that this perspective is narrow-minded and lacks foresight. Unfortunately, many people still hold these biased opinions, believing immigrants are responsible for taking away job opportunities. However, she emphasized that immigrants who come to a new country often work incredibly hard to make a living and contribute to society. She called for more empathy and understanding, highlighting that people only leave their home countries out of necessity and fear for their family’s well-being.
Dua’s perspective sheds light on the importance of recognizing and appreciating the contributions of immigrants, while also challenging the negative narratives surrounding their presence in society.
Dua is a confident and outspoken advocate for political causes, but she approaches endorsing specific politicians with caution. The singer, who boasts a two-star status, shared her perspective, stating, “While I enjoy expressing my opinions on global political matters, I prefer to keep my distance from politicians. I’ve learned to be more mindful when aligning myself with them. It’s one thing to champion certain rights, but I’ve come to the realization that even individuals who initially seem honorable can ultimately disappoint you.”
In the meantime, the beloved music icon has expressed her joy over the overwhelming feedback she received after launching her book club on the Service95 platform. She is elated to see how her project has ignited a passion for reading among young individuals.
Dua shared her thoughts, stating, “The response has been amazing. People have reached out to tell me that their children have started picking up books because of my book club posts. In this age of concise and quick content, reading is a medium that allows us to delve deeper.”
She believes it is crucial to inspire the younger generation to cultivate a love for reading, especially since social media often takes precedence in their lives. Dua acknowledges that reading has seen a decline in recent times but emphasizes that she personally makes an effort to read wherever she goes.
