Dua Lipa is crazy about Greece - She doesn't stop uploading photos from her vacation

Dua Lipa Romain Gavras Sifnos July 2023

Dua Lipa is on vacation in Sifnos with her partner, Romain Gavras, where she constantly uploads photos to her personal Instagram account.

The famous singer seems to be enjoying the Greek summer to the fullest - the sea, the beaches, the picturesque villages of the island and nature walks.

In the new post, among the photos, she also uploaded a video where he appears to be doing a vertical on a board.

The British-Albanian pop star on Friday published her first photos from Sifnos. In one of them, she is on a board in the blue waters of a beach; in another, she is on a boat posing in a black bikini for the camera while she also uploaded a photo where she is enjoying the island's nightlife.

She also did not fail to publish some photos with her partner, with whom she formalised the bond during a joint appearance on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival.

The singer in one shot holds her lover's hand as they walk through the picturesque alleys of Sifnos, while in another they pose in front of a Cycladic house with its characteristic white walls and blue door.

Look at the photos:

Dua Lipa was born in Britain to immigrant Albanian parents Anesa and Dukagjin Lipa, and was granted Albanian citizenship in November by President Bajram Begaj.

The Grammy Award-winner lived in the Serbian separatist province of Kosovo with her family from ages 11-15, telling NPR, “I wouldn’t change it for the world because it really helped me become who I am.”

This is of course in reference to being indoctrinated with Albanian ultra-nationalism, where she humiliatingly promoted the irredentist "Greater Albania" idea by using a Greek word.

In July 2020, she sparked controversy when posting a map of Greater Albania which includes areas of Serbia like Kosovo and the Preševo Valley, areas of Montenegro, and the Greek island of Corfu and southern Epirus.

She wrote “au•toch•tho•nous adjective (of an inhabitant of a place) indigenous rather than descended from migrants or colonists," without even realising the Greek etymology of the word – autochthon (of the land itself), from auto- (self) + chthon (earth, land).

After being slammed by social media users and reported in international media for her ultra-nationalism, the singer has made a poor attempt to whitewash her historical manipulation.

"My previous post was never meant to incite any hate. It makes me sad and angry that my post has been willfully misinterpreted by some groups and individuals who promote ethnic separatism, something I completely reject," she said on Twitter.

A strange proposition considering she wants the Greek island of Corfu that has no Albanian population and southern Epirus that is overwhelmingly Greek and always has been, to be a part of a "Greater Albania."

"Whenever I post about Kosovo, my feed goes crazy, even if it's about something as joyful as food or music, and I am met with a fierce resistance to the idea of an authentic Kosovan culture," she continued to say.

There are of course several problems with this statement.

Dua Lipa was not making a post about only Kosovo, but about a "Greater Albania" that includes other parts of Serbia, Montenegro and Greece. It is an outright lie that her social media post was only about Kosovo.
