Dua Lipa has sacrificed her ego to delight the internet. Fresh off the release of her critically acclaimed Future Nostalgia album, the singer decided to interview a group of seniors in a segment simply titled "Who-a Lipa?," during a stint as guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday. The title alone, people!
"A lot of my fans are young, but I'm always trying to reach a wider audience. So, I decided to reach out to some seniors," Dua said while introducing the clip. "These are real people who I interviewed over the internet. I told them I was conducting a survey about music, but didn't tell them who I was." What ensued was pure comedy encapsulated in just under five minutes.
"Is that a person?"
Though they unanimously had no clue who Dua was, these elderly participants were unafraid to share their two cents on both her music and fashion sense. Dua, meanwhile, was a good sport about the whole thing — attempting to hide her laughter as her outfit got ripped to shreds and managing to ask with a straight face, "Do you think she has a future in the music industry?"
