Why is Dua Lipa so overrated?


Recommended Posts

To me dua is very averrage. Shes not bad at all but shes not exeptionally good at anything. In vocals shes a lot below talents like ariana and xtina, her songwriting is very basic and doesnt stand out next to taylor or lana, her stage presense still isnt very great to me. I just struggle to see what is rly her thing, as of now she seems very replaceable, anyone could sing her songs and so her performances with practise. I feel like the lack of pure pop competition is the reason for her rise. Other artists are experimenting with rock, folk, trap or smth while dua is one of the few doing that traditional pop.

Remember how annoying it was when your parents/grandparents/teachers said, "Back in my day..." You are officially that person now. Congratulations. 

I blame Taylor Swift for the downfall of "the popstar". Yes she writes good songs but she rolled in an era of pop girls who have bland voices, cant dance, no extreme Xfactor element, and generally gen

Y'all crusties deserve to be called out for being so hard to please.

She makes "pure" pop music that the gays flock to even though ironically enough they can't go out and dance to her songs because most clubs are still closed. :billie_eilish_green_chuckle_cackle_lol_lmao_haha_hehe_laugh:

It's especially sad to me because ATRL and GGD have basically become Dua Lipa central: you literally can't escape the constant Dua pandering on those sites and even the staff and administration promote the hell out of her songs. Same goes for Olivia and Taylor, although at least in Taylor's case I can understand stanning someone who's had a long career and who actually switches up her style a bit. Dua is the living incarnation of doing the same thing over and over again though. Someone made a topic comparing her to Katy before, and I think I'm seeing similarities in terms of mediocrity, except Katy actually has US #1s. :hahaha_tiffany_ny_new_york_ms_miss_cackle_laugh_lol_haha_hehe_lmao:

Oh hi again. Imagine the clownery of accusing an artist who has released TWO albums and who has only been active for 4 years of doing the same thing over and over again. Meanwhile Britney did the same thing for her first three albums and no one said a damn thing about that. Taylor released the same album multiple times and again, look who you’re saying you understand stanning. She just did this in the last year alone and in the beginning of her career. Dua must have stolen your bag because you and OP are PRESSED like Chik Fil A lemonade :billie_eilish_green_chuckle_cackle_lol_lmao_haha_hehe_laugh: and Mariah? Queen of releasing the same album :hahaha_tiffany_ny_new_york_ms_miss_cackle_laugh_lol_haha_hehe_lmao:

She is average compared to pop stars of the past. Her stage presence has gotten better and she has catchy songs but that’s all she got going for her. 


they just don’t make pop stars like they used to.

WTF is this thread?! This girl is underrated and deserves so much more succes! Her albums are pop perfections. She just got robbed for a #1 song AGAIN today. So no, she’s not overrated. There’s a reason why Future Nostalgia is the best selling female album of the year.

You don't like her, but you're making a post about her and getting more people to talk about her, but yet you don't want people putting her on a pedestal. 

Like why be so pressed about someone you don't like? Do you think talking about some other artists is going to devalue what Dua brings to the table? Must be so tiring to be this pressed....

It's normal to be that way.

the gays hype up any pop girl with a vulva and a heart beat

if you listened to any sophie ellix bextor or kylie minogue album you'd realize than dua lipa is just a bland, flavorless, unseasoned, dull, generic, flat, insipid, weak, plain, unappetizing and politically correct version of them, very boring if you ask me, where is the vibe, where is the groove??? where is the soul ???

DUA LIPA IS SO MID

Don't downplay a woman of her talents. If she's not your cup of tea, then move on.
I think Dua's album was one of the best of 2020 and I'm happy that she is finally having her moment of success.

Though in my personal opinion, I really enjoy the sound of her debut album. 
2 very different sounding albums and both are hella good.

The Queen of legs is still making more coins than you'll ever see in your life.

 

Gurl has taken all the negative feedback and applied herself and has greatly improved.

Wish all the current heauxs y'all stan would put in half the effort.

Can the mods seriously just stop featuring this person’s topics? They are ALWAYS negative. “Why is this person overrated?” “Why can’t this person dance?” “Why can’t this person sing?” They are literally always negative. But they keep getting featured. If they want to be pressed under other topics, that’s fine. But to feature topics that are solely for the point of being negative? Why?

I think she's quite underrated. When she came out with Be The One 5 years ago, I thought she didn't get the recognition she should have received then. Then she came out with Last Dance, host of other singles, and bops with Sean Paul and Calvin Harris, and it wasn't until New Rules and the album we got now where I'm starting to feel her star power. 

SO NO BISH, LIES ALL AROUND. JEALOUS TEAS BEING SPILLED EVERYWHERE. CLOSE EM LEGS STOP LETTING YOUR WATER BREAK.

GO BACK AND LISTEN TO THIS - IT'S WHAT YOU DESERVE :deserves_kim_kardashian_smirk_pink:

Love and Light

This. And nothing else.

She's Madonna with out the controversy and Kylie without the girl next door vibes, what's not to love..

 

If you're so critical of today's Music, where's your music to help the situation.

It's just his/her opinion why get so worked up about it? 

By the way I featured this, if anyone has issue with it :chrissy_xtina_head_tilt_purse_sass:

I know it was you featured it :haha_britney_laugh_lol_lmao_hehe_haha_bw_black_white:

But either way, if you want Exhale to be a positive place, why feature topics that are specifically designed to be negative?
 

It makes it annoying to even come on here. When I first signed up, this was a pretty positive place, but it’s turning really negative which is why I disappeared for a while. When everything in the world is so negative all the time, why would we want to add to that kind of attitude?
