While the singer has been very present on social media this album cycle, Lipa recently opened up about how she couldn’t have written Future Nostalgia without taking a step back from the internet. “In all honesty, I don’t think I could have done my second record if I hadn’t taken a step back from social media,” she said in an interview. “When you first start, when I first started putting new music out, everything was super positive and I had lots of nice messages. I think the more stuff you do, then there is criticism and comments and it all comes in thick and fast, and for a while it was really getting to me. I just felt like people had nothing but mean things to say or I was being picked on. It did upset me, it made me feel I didn’t deserve to do certain things.”
