Dua Lipa made her return to the stage last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! after emergency dental surgery forced her to shelve sjows in Australia and New Zealand.
The singer was originally due to support Bruno Mars on his 24k Magic World Tour, but pulled out to undergo emergency wisdom tooth extraction.
““I’ve been performing with an awful pain due to my wisdom teeth and as advised by my dentist and oral surgeon I have to have them imminently removed. I have been enjoying this tour so much and am upset that life has gotten in the way but hopefully I’ll have a speedy recovery and make it back as soon as possible”, she said at the time.
Last night’s performance proved that she’s in fine fettle once again, with the singer cheekily evading the wrath of TV censors by allowing the crowd to sing the “fuck” portion of the song’s chorus.
Check out the performance in full below.
“I wasn’t thinking about their beef,” Lipa told Rolling Stone. “I was thinking about their music, and Taylor is amazing, but I’m such a hip-hop fan that I would probably choose Kanye over anyone.”
“They were sending me snake emojis for, like, three days straight. They’re like, ‘I hope you die.’ I’m like, ‘Yo! I literally didn’t say anything’”, Lipa explained.
