In her current reflective state, superstar Dua Lipa is more cognizant of tough times and harsh circumstances.

Dua took to her Instagram Stories recently to thank her fans for their huge support for her "Future Nostalgia" album. In the process, she also thanked the bullies for making fun of her dance.

In 2017, shortly after Dua became popular, videos of her live shows circulated on social media after she was criticized for her dancing and performance.

The criticism, however, only pushed her to get better. Dua said, “I’m so grateful for all the incredible opportunities; all the amazing people I met; all the incredible lessons that I learned; touring for like, three years.”

She added, “Getting bullied online … made me want to dance my a– off and just really get better. So, thank you so much — for all things good and bad, for helping me grow. I’m forever grateful.”

The just-released video for "Love Again" was Dua's most recent showing of her developing skills.

Meanwhile, Dua was once asked about the power of her beauty, and her response resonated with her. In an interview earlier this year, she claimed her talent led to her success rather than her looks.

"I've been thinking about it almost every day, and I was just a little bit taken aback," Lipa told Rolling Stone. "I've never really seen being pretty or beautiful as some kind of power."

She added, "It's never been something that I identify with and — with no disrespect to you, obviously — I feel like I was a little bit shortchanged in a way because I don't feel like I've gotten to where I am because of that."



"I'm extremely hardworking and driven, and I feel like that's the reason why I got to where I am, through my hard work and my drive, and I just wanted to make that clear because it has been playing on my mind," the singer continued.

Dua was a model before signing with Warner Music Group in 2015. Her self-titled debut album came out two years later.
