  • Dua Lipa’s Grammys Look Is Just as Electric as Her Nominated Single

In clear shock, the 23-year-old British singer took the stage and gave another shout out to the fellow female artists in her category. "I guess we really stepped it up this year".

Tonight's Best New Artist win marks Lipa's second Grammy win and her second nomination.

According to Rolling Stone, this comment on stage was a direct rebuttal to remarks made by The Recording Academy President Neil Portnow, former head of the organization that runs the Grammys, who said previous year that to attain the prominence and equal representation, women in the music business would need to "step up".

Asked about 21's situation backstage at the Grammys 2019, Dua said she finds it "upsetting, given that he hasn't actually done anything". In 2018, the singer attended the Grammys after party in a attractive white dress, but this year, we got to witness what she brings to the actual Grammys red carpet.

The singer thanked her fans who "have allowed me to be the best..."

It's unfortunate that Lipa wasn't given time to finish her speech, but Lipa continued the discussion she opened at Grammy press rooms after the ceremony was over.

"Being in the new artist category and having so many female artists nominated is a big change, and it's the change that we hope to see for many years to come", Lipa said in a People report. Part glittery silver fabric, part shiny pewter silk, the gown was the flawless look for Lipa's Grammys debut.
