Lipa was born on August 22, 1995 in London to Albanian parents.

"I want to begin [.] by saying how honoured I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists this year", Dua Lipa said, adding "I guess this year we really stepped up".

Dua Lipa won two GRAMMYs at this year's event. "You'll be hearing from me soon", she said.

Her quick comment seemed to be referenced to Portnow 2018 comments regarding women being involved in the industry and the trending #GrammysSoMale.

Neil Portnow faced backlash when he said that if women wanted recognition at the GRAMMYs, the needed to "step up". "[They need] to step up because I think they would be welcome". "I want to say a really big thank you to my fans who have allowed me to be the best version of myself".

Dua Lipa's 2019 Grammys is already off to a bangin' start!

Footage from the press room shows that Dua Lipa did not leave her comments on the stage and that she continued to speak about the subject when quizzed by reporters. Reporters asked her the importance of that phrase, and the young singer remained enthusiastic and unapologetic.

Her sixth single "New Rules", which came off her self-titled debut studio album, was her first number one in Britain - and the first by a female solo artist to top the United Kingdom charts since 2015's "Hello" by Adele. "It's a big difference from previous years. They're artists that I love and admire, and I'm so glad to be able to share that with them".

Dua Lipa was on FIRE last night at The Grammys. "Please know that my commitment to all the good that we do will carry on as we turn the page on the next chapter of the storied history of this phenomenal institution".
