Hello, if you're reading this, you're already obsessed with living legend and VERY GOOD DANCER HOW DARE YOU, Dua Lipa—or as some call her, Dula Peep. But the time has come to get to know her on a deeper, nerdier level. Which is basically a complicated way of saying we've rounded up a bunch of need-to-know facts about Dua, the person who left Shakespeare simply shaking when she uttered the poetic musing, "If you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him." Let's go:
She's Covered in Meaningful Tattoos
Dua has a ton of teeny tats, but a couple stand out. That R and G on her wrist? A shoutout to her siblings, Rina and Gjin:
And "Sunnyhill" on her arm? A tribute to the Kosovo neighborhood where her parents lived:
She's Dating Anwar Hadid
Okay, fine, you already knew that. But did you know they've been together since June 2019 and have been basically inseparable ever since? I meannnnnnnn:
Honestly, enjoy these pics because Dua and Anwar are very private. As she told Vogue UK,
“We have all these incredible memories and experiences, and if there’s something that we want to share together, then okay, that’s fun. But at the same time, we’re quite private—we’ll only show you as much as we want you to see. It’s a little bit of give and take, trying to find the right balance of being so excited and being in love, and wanting to share that with the people around me, but at the same time not wanting to put too much out there. I want to be able to just be happy in this relationship without having other people’s opinions.”
Dua and Anwar Share a Ton of Cute Pets
Including this puppy:
And these goats:
Because did I mention? Dua and Anwar live part time on Yolanda Hadid's farm. She told Rolling Stone about the vibe there, saying "[You] wake up around 9:00, 9:30, shower, get dressed. Have a bit of breakfast, take the dog out on a really nice long walk. Maybe do some yoga, make some lunch, hang out, watch a movie, play with the animals.”
Wow. The dream.
Her Merch Is Cute
It's quite literally just a fact!
Her Fan Nickname Is "Dula Peep"
We have Wendy Williams to thank for this one. The talk show host mistakenly and repeatedly called Dua Lipa "Dula Peep" on her show, and the internet has been calling her by the name ever since.
Like "Dula Peep" fully trended on Twitter after Dua's performance at the 2021 Grammys, that's all I'm saying.
The Name "Dua" Means Love
She told Jimmy Fallon, “I just didn’t appreciate my name as much growing up. Living in London, being born in London, having a full Albanian name like Dua, people pronouncing it wrong... It means love in Albanian. I feel like I just wanted a normal name." (Yes, Dua Lipa is 100% her real name.)
She's, Um, v.v.v. Rich for Her Age
Dua's net worth is $16 million according to Celebrity Net Worth, which is MAJOR— especially considering that she's just 25!
She Does 15 Minutes of Exercise Per Day
Apparently, "It's high-intensive interval training." Unclear if learning Dua's Grammy choreo counts, but...
She Was in a Commercial for The X Factor
It's like this ad was a PREMONITION.
Apparently inquiring minds want to know how tall she is, so there ya go! That's her height! You can rest easy now!
And Finally, Her First Online Screen Name Was...
"baby D." Just in case you were wondering, which no doubt you were. That's all, off to listen to Future Nostalgia again.
