Pop singer-songwriter, Dua Lipa, sure knows how to put on a party and definitely did not disappoint at The Armory.

Dua Lipa Brings A Party To Minneapolis

On Sunday night, Dua Lipa made her stop in Minneapolis on her "The Self-Titled Tour" and it was quite the night.

The night started off with a recording of encouraging words from Dua telling the crowd to be who they are and to love who you are and to live your very best life, tonight with her and everyone else in the venue. Then, as she appeared on stage, Dua yelled, "Are you ready to party tonight Minneapolis?!" and from the positive response of the jammed packed crowd, it was clear that they were.

Throughout the first few songs, including, "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)", "Dreams / No Lie", "My Love", and "Lost in Your Love" the crowd was drawn into the music and entertaining show that Dua puts on. With her incredible vocals, empowering lyrics, crazy amount of energy an passion, amazing dancers (herself included), and colorful lighting, Dua Lipa sure knows how to help you have one fun night with your best friends.

Dua came out with a crazy amount of energy and confidence from the start and it reflected right back onto the crowd. From the moment she appeared on stage you could just tell that she loves what she does and definitely belongs up on stage with her natural stage presence.

Dua has a super fun sense of style and is usually seen wearing some amazing outfits on stage at her shows, and Minneapolis was no exception. She rocked a light pink sheer long sleeve top and pink lace beaded stretch flares from Dyspnea. She also added some sneakers and a rainbow cupcake topper ring to the outfit.

The fifth song of the night was "High" which Dua wrote with 18-year-old producer, Whethan. It is a catchy, dark, and soulful track which earned a place on the Fifty Shades Freed movie earlier this year. The track was clearly a crowd favorite as screams erupted as the opening notes began. At the end, the track transitioned into "Garden" and then before playing "Last Dance" Dua stated, "This next track showed me that you should never let go of the people that you love. I never thought that I'd be able to share this song with the amount of people that I have and it just means a lot to me."

Dua brought the party mood up even more with "Be the One." She encouraged the crowd by saying, "I am so so happy to be here with you all tonight. Thanks for being so much fun. I'm going to need all of you in this building to go absolutely fu*king mental for this next song!" and the crowd sure went crazy. As soon as the song began everyone started dancing, putting their hands in the air, and screaming the lyrics back to her.

The song was a definite highlight as halfway through Dua screamed, "Minneapolis, you're the one!" She grabbed a pride flag from a fan in the crowd and wore it like a cape for the rest of the song. Dua gave multiple shout outs throughout the show to the Twin Cities Pride Weekend which was taking place.

Next, Dua mentioned that it was time to bring it down a bit. She moved into her ballads including, "Thinking 'Bout You" and "New Love." She then started to bring the mood back up with "Genesis" and her current hit with Calvin Harris, "One Kiss." The track has been climbing the charts like crazy and was definitely a popular song among the thousands in the crowd.

"Scared To Be Lonely" and "Homesick" followed. "Homesick" has been the song of Dua's that really pulls on my heart strings. I was definitely the girl in the back of the arena bawling her eyes out as the piano came out and Dua performed the song. It just felt so surreal to hear it live. "No Goodbyes" followed and it was such a beautiful performance vocally. The lyrics of that song can really get you, especially when heard live.

"Hotter Than Hell" and "Begging" came just before the encore and they got the crowd hyped up even more...if that was even possible. Hands were in the air, people were jumping, and just about everyone was screaming along to the lyrics.

Corbyn Jenkins (IG: @CorbynJenkins)

Soon after, Dua appeared back on stage for the encore where she performed the two tracks most had been waiting to hear all night long: "IDGAF" and "New Rules." As "IDGAF" began, a "warning" appeared on the screen which read:

"You are about to experience some explicit language and behavior. This is a song for all the fu*kboys who have done you wrong. If you would like to participate in the next activity put your middle fingers up. Thank you."

And as you can guess, many middle fingers flew up to the air as the song began. Many iPhones also shot up to record the moment Dua performed her popular single.

"New Rules" closed out the night and was the main highlight as the track is Dua's most popular song with over 860 million streams on Spotify. Just about everyone in the venue had their hands up in the air and was dancing and singing along to the words of Dua's hit with ear-to-ear smiles were plastered on their faces.

Pop singer-songwriter, Dua Lipa sure knows how to put on one heck of a party and she definitely did not disappoint in Minneapolis.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
