Dua Lipa on Post-Grammys Strip Club Backlash: 'We Have to Support Sex Workers'

Back in January 2020, #DuaLipaIsOverParty began trending on Twitter after Dua Lipa attended Lizzo's Grammy after-party at the Crazy Girls strip club in Los Angeles.

Lipa responded to the backlash in a new cover story for Rolling Stone on Thursday (Jan. 14), noting that the bash at the strip club was actually the opposite of anti-feminist. “I just feel like, if you’re a feminist, you have to also support women in all fields of work,” she explained. “We have to support sex workers, we have to believe that that [work] is their choice and their right."

"It seems quite hypocritical, I think, people picking and choosing as to how they want to support women and when it suits them," she continued. "That’s another form of misogyny, which really derives from the male gaze.”
