It’s been a long road for Dua Lipa, but on Sunday night, she was awarded the coveted Best New Artist award at the Grammys.
Dua faced stiff competition from artists like H.E.R., Bebe Rexha, Chloe x Halle and fellow Brit Jorja Smith, and was visibly emotional as she made her way onto the stage.
However, even in her overwhelmed state, she still managed to throw a bit of shade at Grammys boss Neil Portnow, after his comments about female artists, in the wake of last year’s male-heavy show.

“Oh my goodness, thank you so much,” Dua said.
“I guess where I want to begin is by saying how honoured I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists, I guess this year we’ve really stepped up.”
