Dua Lipa playing backgammon and enjoying the Greek summer

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa is back in Greece for her summer vacation, accompanied by her Greek-French partner Romain Gavras.

After the couple visited Sifnos earlier in the summer, it is now the Peloponnese's turn. The star often shares snapshots from their trip with her social media followers, such as them on a beach or on the luxury boat they rented.

Dua Lipa made a new post on Instagram, thus giving her fans more insight into her Greek adventure.

In some of the snaps posted by the pop star, she plays backgammon, while in others, she is smiling with a beautiful landscape behind her.

In one of the other photos she uploaded from Sifnos, 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.

In one shot, the singer 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.

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

In July 2020, she sparked controversy when posting a map of Greater Albania, including areas of Serbia like Kosovo and the Preševo Valley, 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.

This a strange proposition considering she wants the Greek island of Corfu, which has no Albanian population and southern Epirus, which 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 said.

There are, of course, several problems with this statement.

Dua Lipa was not making a post about only Kosovo but 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.
