Singer Dua Lipa reportedly pulled a music video worth hundreds of thousands of pounds as she apparently decided it was “insensitive” amid the conflict in Gaza, which erupted on October 7.

In a cover chat on the latest issue of Rolling Stone, she says, “I feel so bad for every Israeli life lost and what happened on 7 October.

“At the moment, what we have to look at is how many lives have been lost in Gaza, and the innocent civilians, and the lives that are just being lost.”

Lipa talks about how important it is to engage in current affairs. “It’s probably easier to be apolitical. I think there’s no kind of deep discussion about war and oppression. It just is something that we’ve seen happen time and time again. I feel like just being a musician and posting about something doesn’t make enough of a difference, but hopefully, just showing solidarity, which is sometimes all you feel like you can do, is important.”

She apparently axed a pricey music video amid the Israel-Hamas conflict as it included explosions as well as fighting crowds. A music insider says the promo, shot before the war, was pulled after “emergency meetings” among Dua’s team.

“At its heart the video was playful but contained themes of chaos – including car crashes, demolition, explosions, fireworks and crowds fighting. Dua and her team decided that it would be insensitive for the video to come out given what has happened on and since 7 October,” says the source.
