Fresh from her double success at this week’s BRIT awards, the English songstress and model Dua Lipa has sparked rumours of an interest in branching out into the movies in the future. The 'IDGAF' - sensibly abbreviated to avoid censorship issues - singer gushed that she would “love to be the new Bond girl” and follow in the footsteps of Oscar-winner Sam Smith on the accompanying soundtrack.

Double celebration for Lipa and Stormzy

Not content with matching Stormzy’s brace of gongs at the annual British awards ceremony, Dua Lipa already seems to be considering her options outside of the music scene.

With an appearance in a James Bond film seemingly an ambition of many stars, she has hinted that it “would be so fun” and would be interested in “do the song too!”

American pop legend Madonna has already achieved the distinction of both starring in and providing the title track for a Bond film when she contributed to the 2002 outing for Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day. However, it was Smith who put his Bond theme tune firmly into the minds of the Academy Awards’ fraternity and his reward was to scoop the prize for Best Original Song with Writing’s on the Wall (“Spectre”).

Political matters aired on stage

Lipa joined Stormzy in utilising her winning position at the BRITs on the night to air her views on other topical matters as well.

While the leading grime artist took the opportunity to remind listeners of the horrors of the Grenfell Tower disaster with a strong attack on Theresa May, Lipa also provided a message of solidarity for women.

Backed women dreaming big

Her sentiments echoed the thoughts of many stars at recent awards’ ceremonies, with her acceptance speech for British female solo artist including thanks to "every single female that has been on this stage before me.” Expanding on the potential influence of seeing women succeed in society in general, she added that it had “allowed us to dream this big."

She opted for a slightly alternative approach to bolster her strength prior to her BRITs appearance, as her backstage drinking habits were divulged as including “lots of tea, lemon and ginger tea.” Very rock ‘n roll indeed!

Lipa also bagged the British Breakthrough prize at the BRITs as Stormzy took home the awards for British Solo Male and the British Album of the Year (“Gang Signs & Prayer”). He was particularly pleased with the top album reward, stating that “it’s something I feel very proud of.”
