Albanian Dua Lipa does not accept statements from the British government: “It hurts them to describe Albanians as criminals” | celebrities

celebritiesBritish singer Dua Lipa (27) of Albanian descent feels hurt by the recent statements of the British Home Secretary, Soila Braverman. He spoke, among other things, of “Albanian criminals” crossing the canal. “Myopia and narrow-mindedness,” says the singer, who demands more empathy for immigrants.

Dua Lipa was born in 1995 in the United Kingdom, but her parents are Albanians who fled Kosovo in the 1990s. Since 2022, Dua Lipa has Albanian citizenship. The recent statements of the British Home Secretary, Soyla Braverman, have gone in the wrong direction with her. The politician called the refugees crossing the canal “Albanian criminals” and likened the influx to an “invasion”.

People work hard

The British singer finds the way politicians often talk about immigrants painful. “Of course it hurts,” Lipa says in an interview with The Sunday Times. “I always felt London was a mixture of cultures. It’s an integral part of the city. So when you hear the government talk about Albanians, for example, it hurts. It’s short-sighted and narrow-minded, but that’s what a lot of people think.”

Lipa believes the clich√© of “immigrants getting into the country and getting jobs” will always be around, even though it doesn’t work that way. “They came to London and made their living by working incredibly hard.” Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama called Braverman’s comments “deeply shameful”.
