Dua Lipa Explains How She Made Peace With Her ‘Lazy’ Viral Dance
Promote it in progress nostalgia for the future tour, the singer Dua Lipa passed the Tonight’s show to talk about her “lazy” dance that went viral in 2018 for all the wrong reasons. Thankfully, as she told host Jimmy Fallon, the sting of millions of people laughing at her moves now seems a little less strong and has actually become a learning experience.
“It was kind of like, ‘Oh, it looks like she’s trying to put her shoe on in a hurry or something,'” Lipa said of the widespread reaction to her dancing. Played during his song “One Kiss”, the notorious choreography had Dua Lipa repeatedly twist her hips back and forth while remaining largely still – a move that many considered awkward.

“There was a time when it caused me a lot of grief,” the singer said. “Like, I was being bullied online, it wasn’t very pleasant. But now I’m like, you know, I can see this from a different perspective. I look back on it with so many affection because it helped me grow into the artist I wanted to be. It made me work harder. I got in, I did more rehearsals, I just wanted to be a real performer, and I think it was the kind of thing I needed to [do so].”
It’s nice to see that she can be a good sport about it, as well as finding a silver lining in the widespread internet ridicule.
