First off yesterday, Ariana Grande topped the Billboard Hot 100 And did the sweetest posts, thanking her fans saying, “Let’s promise to keep going.” Congrats Ari and we are all about the pop queens today.

The date is May 3rd and the project is Dua Lipa’s ‘Radical Optimism’ and we had the sweetest chat with the pop star about the brand new album, bad dates and oh, and the Spice Girls.

Dua Lipa
Throughout the whole record there is this idea of chaos happening around and me trying to push through it in a way that feels authentic and honest. To me this is obviously an overly dramatic way to to explain that but I feel like it says radical optimism to me in the in the clearest sense of being in deep waters.
