Twitter is how you heard about that Wendy Williams “Doola Peep” comment. 

 

And Twitter has not let me forget it. But it’s cool. I don’t watch Wendy Williams, so it was my first time experiencing anything to do with her show. I was like, Who is this woman? I try to take things like that super-lightly. You can’t take yourself too seriously, because you can get yourself into a right mess.

“I found it funny,” she says. “Even my friends started calling me Doola Peep.” It was slightly better than Duolingo, as in the language-learning app, which she’s also gotten. Lipa is used to the name jokes. They’re based on a confused, perhaps xenophobic perception of her: People find it hard to pin down where she comes from. It’s been happening since she was a child, moving from London to Kosovo and back again. For the record, Dua means “love” in Albanian. “I’ve learned to correct people about my name my whole life,” she says, unfazed. “So I’m like, Call me whatever you want. You’ll learn it soon enough, babes.”
