Dua Lipa Calls for ‘Humanitarian Cease-Fire’ in Gaza

Mr. Nimbus | 01/16/2024

Since the escalation of the Israel-Hamas war in the fall, Dua Lipa has been a fervent political advocate, and in her new Rolling Stone cover story, the “Levitating” singer opened up more about her stance.

“My existence is kind of political, the fact that I lived in London because my parents left from the war,” she explained, in reference to her Albanian parents. “I feel for people who have to leave their home. From my experience of being in Kosovo and understanding what war does, no one really wants to leave their home. They do it for protection, to save their family, to look after the people around them, that kind of thing, for a better life. So I feel close to it.”

She continued, “My feelings on displaced people [are] very real and raw, and it is a difficult subject to speak about because it’s so divisive.”

The conflict between Israel and Palestine escalated after the horrific Oct. 7 terror attack on the Supernova Music Festival at Kibbutz Re’im by Hamas militants. The assault by air and land by the militant arm of the terrorist organization that governs the more than two million Palestinians who live in the Gaza Strip included the killing of more than 260 revelers and many more kidnapped at the Paralello Universo Supernova Sukkot Gathering electronic dance music festival celebrating the Jewish holiday Simchat Torah.

That same month, Lipa joined a number of other celebrities to sign an open letter urging President Joe Biden to call for a ceasefire in Gaza. “At the moment, what we have to look at is how many lives have been lost in Gaza, and the innocent civilians, and the lives that are just being lost. There are just not enough world leaders that are taking a stand and speaking up about the humanitarian crisis that’s happening, the humanitarian cease-fire that has to happen,” Lipa told Rolling Stone.
