Pop star Dua Lipa on reclaiming viral moment she was bullied for

Dua Lipa is grateful for haters who bullied her five years ago.

The “Don't Start Now” singer went viral in 2017 for what fans called a "lazy"

dance in which Lipa puts her hands on her hips and shifts her weight between hips in a fun, bouncy movement.

“Now, I can look at it from a different perspective. I look back at it with such fondness because it helped me grow into the artist that I wanted to become

I went in, I did more rehearsal. I just wanted to become a real performer. And I think that was kind of the thing that I needed.”

The "Electricity" singer launched her current tour last month after its original kick off date of early 2020 was postponed due to the pandemic.

Lipa performs again Friday night at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, where she will do the dance for all to see.
