Dua Lipa Once Crashed Katy Perry’s Stage During a Concert
The KatyCats just earned a famous new member: Dua Lipa!
The "New Rules" singer revealed that she once attended one of Katy Perry's concerts... and crashed the stage.
Speaking to the Witness star for her new V magazine cover story, Lipa shared that when she was 15 years old, a friend surprised her with tickets to one of Perry's California Dreams Tour dates, where she eventually ended up onstage with the pop star.
"...A friend of mine surprised me [with tickets] for a birthday gift. I was like, 'Oh my God, I can’t believe it, I wanna go to the front!' We queued for quite a while at the Hammersmith Apollo. There were super-fans in gingerbread costumes with blue wigs and I was so pissed I didn’t have a wig," Lipa explained.
"We get into the venue and everything’s so magical. You were doing your cover and you were like, 'Who’s gonna come up with me?' and no one even pointed at me, so I was like, f--- this, I’m going up there," she continued, explaining that one of Perry's dancers helped her onstage after she climbed over the barricade.
But Lipa didn't just get on stage—she even got to hug the "Teenage Dream" singer, who she cites as "so inspiring."
"You were wearing this glittery blue rhinestone bodysuit and I just wanted to touch the suit," she explained to Perry. "I did, and then I joined in on the hug with everyone."
But Perry isn't the only pop star Lipa showed love to in her feature: She also named P!nk as the one musician she'd love to emulate, career-wise, saying, "I think P!nk has been able to go with the times, and stay true to herself."
