Dua Lipa Does Montrose! Star Seen Around the ’Hood, as Single with H-Town’s Meg Thee Stallion Drops

Dua Lipa at Poison Girl in Montrose

IT'S BEEN A rough week for Dua Lipa, who reportedly has been hit with two copyright infringement lawsuits against her song “Levitating” — the No. 1 song in the world in 2021 according to Billboard’s end-of-year Global 200 chart. But it turns out the 26-year-old pop superstar is finding respite in Montrose ahead of her sold-out show at the Toyota Center on Saturday.


On Thursday, Lipa, who was dressed to thrill in heels and a see-through number covered in stars and revealing a black bra underneath, stopped by the Rothko Chapel for a tour and a chance to meditate inside the Houston landmark. Then, joined by two girlfriends, she partied a few blocks away at Poison Girl on the Westheimer Curve, where they made good use of the pub’s leopard-print-covered photobooth and played pinball.

And that’s not even all the Houston news for the superstar. At midnight, her new single “Sweetest Pie” featuring H-Town hottie Meg Thee Stallion dropped. Meg Thee Stallion explained the pairing on Instagram: “Everybody was making mash-ups of me and hers songs and I was like this sounds too good. We have to make a song. We both came to a mutual agreement that it was greatness.” The song is currently the No. 1 music video on YouTube and No. 2 on the iTunes charts.

Dua Lipa plays the Toyota Center March 12 as part of her Future Nostalgia Tour. Carolina Polachek and Lolo Zouai are opening.

Serial entrepreneur and spa visionary LeBrina Jackson

NESTLED IN THE heart of France, the town of Vichy holds a rich history in the world of wellness and hydrotherapy. Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.
