Dua Lipa has quit smoking to protect her voice.
The singer who is currently on her ‘Future Nostalgia Tour’ which was postponed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic has made the decision to quit smoking to keep her singing voice in the best condition possible.
Speaking during an interview with ‘At Your Service’ podcast, she revealed: “I had laryngitis in December and that kind of kickstarted me quitting smoking a month earlier than I was supposed to. But I did it and I have stuck to it.”
The 26-year-old said: “It is a really, really demanding and relentless show. When you’re in rehearsals and I’m like, ‘Yeah, let’s do this dance routine here, and let’s do this and let’s do that.’ Nothing ever quite prepares you for the real thing, especially when the adrenaline hits and you’re on stage and you feel the energy from the crowd. That definitely helps you get in the zone and you don’t really think about the toll it can take on your body because the adrenaline is so high.”
“I have this habit tracker on my phone and every night I tick off all the good things that I’ve done for my body and things I’ve done for myself. I even make sure that I have time to read my book and I have some time to do some self-care, that’s ways that I try and stay on top of my mental health and I stay energized by knowing that I’ve done things for myself that really fill up my days in different ways. And I get to do the fun party 90-minute dance-off every night. That keeps me really happy and really sane,” She said.
