      And the removal from playlists has more to do with disgusted programmers than anything Herpa’s team did.
      Woulda shoulda. It's simply that the song is a smash. I mean there is a reason the original Levitating outstreamed any Moo song except Xmas Song for example

          And yet, an original standalone release wouldn’t have even outpeaked Obsessed, Kween’s lowest peaking top 10.

              Those are Dr. Luke’s songs as much as they are Kitty’s so it’s not like she had much of a say on that.

                The situations are not remotely comparable but nice try to to try and involve Katy in this mess.

                I would have thought that if Dua were to remove the track from Spotify completely the streams would also be removed from the album totals. How can you continue to count something that no longer exists... which is why she probably wont remove it from the album.

                          Absolutely. It is sending a clear message to him and his ilk that things like this will cause them to be shunned and removed from events.

                            Agreed. There's a lot of moral superiority and malicious joy involved.

                              still nowhere near the hatred and remarks he spew towards LGBTQ and people with HIV/AIDS!!!

                              and besides that I don’t understand why are you so defensive about this whole mess he put himself into?!

                              is it because it involves Dua which I wouldn’t be surprised if you feel different towards her just based on her nationality!!!

                              I mean the whole Europe loves to belittle and think less of Balkan people!!! (Especially towards Albanians)

                                Wtf... What Europe are you talking about? And Dua is still very much a British artist, if anything the UK gets the biggest hate out of anyone else in Europe.

                                  how would you know what I’m talking about if you are not from the region I mentioned?!

                                  Dua can hold any passport and live wherever she likes but still very much she is Albanian!!!

                                  And just last week I was flying Lufthansa business class from New York to Frankfurt and the main Flight Attendant made remarks how all these Former Yugoslav countries are filling up their planes and they are not used to that and how they have no manners among other things…only after she finished what she had to say I told her that I am from Kosovo and things she said they are not nice. She apologized to me but I don’t think that she’ll change her opinion about people from Former Yugoslavia as she liked to say!!!

                                    Personally I don't feel hate for anyone - I am not that kind of person. Rather I am happy to see a message being sent that these types of bigoted and homophobic comments being made are not going to be accepted - it is a huge step forward IMO. The fact that he is getting dropped from festivals is big news and definitely would not have happened before.

                                    Add to that the fact that his apologies were so insincere and a bad attempt at saving face - he deserves what he is getting.

                                    As for those accusing people of being morally superior! Do I feel morally superior to a man who went on stage and made deragatory comments about people living with HIV/ Aids, made homophoic comments and insulted women? Hell YES you can be sure I do. And I will make no apologies for that

                                      I am from Europe and have never heard anyone degrading the Balkans, not saying that there isn't prejudice, but your argument was crazy considering most people outside of the Balkans don't see Dua Lipa as anything other than a British Act.

                                      • Prejudice doesn’t sound any better than what I said, the only difference is that mine is more explicit and to the point of how we feel like when we encounter such a thing…also I am not going to argue with you because it will be pointless. You are not from region and you can only speak from your perspective point of view. As an Albanian from Kosovo myself I have witnessed discrimination but this isn’t topic for me to continue share my experiences!!

                                        secondly, I don’t know where you live but it’s absurd to think people don’t know Dua’s Albanian descent…she literally posts to hundred of millions people on her social media!!!

                                        And just to be clear I am not trying to take her Britishness away from her but also I don’t agree with your statement saying people recognize her only as being British!!!

                                              This is so rude and dare I say racist and uncalled for, especially coming by you...

                                              First of all, I am Greek which is a Balkan nationality. I actually feel more at home from Croatia to Oman (the areas where the Byzantines and Ottomans left us with many common traits) than in western Europe.

                                              Second, I have been to Albania, I loved it, I have friends there from my trip and I feel embarrased about some of the things we Greeks have said and done through the last years.

                                              I also have a chart for the last 2-3 years where Dua Lipa is a regular whereas DaBaby has appeared for 2 or 3 weeks max.

                                              Lastly, you should know all these because regularly I gave high points to your (Albanian or Kosovar) entries in FSC so you should get a hint.

                                              The hate I am talking about is the hate expressed in this page in various ways which you also just exhibited right now and I am really sorry that you steeped that low.

                                              Nationality is not the only thing that makes us, personally I speak Turkish and read Turkish literature on a regular basis and, trust me, there are much more differences between Greeks and Turks than between Greeks and Albanians.

                                              However, I don't have to explain myself to you or anybody else here.

                                              Btw, thanks for proving my point. Your comment was clearly prejudicial (and as a result resulting from a place of hate) and if you see us as a group towards which you feel negative feelings, perhaps you should start working with yourself too, along with DaBaby.

                                                I come only from a place of bolded part above you just admitted AKA discriminated!!!

                                                And I don't hate anyone for their race, sex or nationality...as much as you're trying to put that tag on me.

                                                I am the one here who went through some form of discrimination based on my nationality and sharing that experience with other doesn't make me a hater...it just exposes how we feel when we encounter experiences such as the one you mentioned what others have said and done about us.
