Dua Lipa: My grandfather was asked to falsify the history of Kosovo
Dua Lipa recently appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in America.
Among other things, in her exclusive interview for the well-known American media, Dua also spoke about her Albanian roots and the difficult moments that her parents and family members experienced from the Serbian repression, being forced to leave for the United Kingdom.
"Rolling Stone" talks about the work and success of the famous artist as well as the talented work around the creation of the super successful album "Future Nostalgia".
In her interview, she also mentioned her grandfather, the historian Seit Lipa, who was once the Director of the Institute of History in Prishtina.
Dua recalled how her grandfather was fired by the Serbian occupiers, as he refused to rewrite or rather to 'falsify' history as they demanded.
"My grandfather on my father's side was writing books about everything that was happening," she explains. "When the occupation took place, Serbian forces demanded that he rewrite history. He refused and so he lost his job. "This event is part of what I am and I stand by the things I believe in," Dua said in her interview.
