Dua Lipa branded her Best Pop Vocal Album Grammy Award win “insane”.
The 25-year-old singer reflected on how “important” happiness is as she accepted the accolade for her second album ‘Future Nostalgia’ on Sunday (14.03.21) and admitted the record had helped her feel revitalised.
She said: “Oh my goodness. Wow, thank you so much. This is insane.
“‘Future Nostalgia’ means the absolute world to me and it has changed my life in so many ways.
“But one thing that I have really come to realise is how much happiness is so important. I felt really dated at the end of my last album where I felt like I only had to make sad music to feel like it mattered.
” And I’m just so grateful and so honoured because happiness is something we all deserve and need in our lives.”
The ‘Don’t Start Now’ hitmaker – who had performed earlier in the evening – went on to thank her fans, manager, label and team.
She added: “This means so much. Thanks to my family and friends watching at home, I love you, thank you.”
Dua beat out competition from Justin Bieber (‘Changes’), Lady Gaga (‘Chromatica’), Harry Styles (‘Fine Line’) and Taylor Swift (‘Folklore’) to win the category.
The singer has been nominated for a total of six Grammies this year and previously admitted the recognition had left her feeling “a bit overwhelmed”.
She said: “Sometimes when you say it out loud, it’s a bit unbelievable and I’m a little bit overwhelmed.
“I mean, it’s bonkers, it’s mind-blowing, it’s amazing… These things really only happen in your dreams, so I feel like, well, I’m hoping no one is going to wake me up and be like, “All right, time for school!’ or something.”
