Why wasn’t Dua Lipa at Glastonbury with Elton John?


Dua Lipa did have other plans, and fair play to her. According to her social media, she’s been hanging out, cooking and socialising with friends and family in New York instead of performing at Worthy Farm. She also shared a few Pride events happening in the Big Apple, so there’s a good chance she’s been celebrating Pride Month with her loved ones.

Though she was on the list of rumoured surprise acts to appear on stage with Elton John for his headliner set, she was never confirmed. So, disappointment aside, why do fans (or people who are decidedly not fans of hers) feel like they can criticise, or hurl online abuse at her, for not being present for a performance she had never confirmed she was going to do in the first place?

The singer did, however, reshare a video on a fan’s Instagram Stories of Elton’s performance of Cold Heart at Glastonbury, adding her own hand-heart emojis. So, we’re choosing to believe she was there in spirit, regardless of the unnecessary nasty words written about her online.

Elton was joined by four special celebrity guests – The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, Rina Sawayama, Stephen Sanchez and Jacob Lusk of The Gabriels.

Rina filled in for Kiki Dee’s original vocals and sung Don’t Go Breaking My Heart alongside Elton, while Brandon Flowers joined him for Tiny Dancer.

While we would’ve loved to have seen Dua on stage too, the final Glasto set was definitely glorious in her (justifiable) absence.
