"I always stand up for social justice and I am very sorry to anyone that I have offended"

Dua Lipa has taken to Twitter to publicly apologise to her 1.33m followers, after comments on a cover she recorded in 2014 have surfaced.

Nearly four years ago, the 'Hotter Than Hell' singer recorded her version of Mila J's 'Smoke, Drink, Break-Up', which features some inappropriate language.

After some criticism on her choice to include the lyrics, Dua Lipa wrote a statement, saying "In relation to my 2014 cover I never meant to offend or upset anyone.

"I didnt say the full word but I can admit I shouldnt have gone there at all and that a different word could’ve been recorded altogether to avoid offence and confusion," continued the 22-year-old star. "I wasn’t thinking it through at the time."

She then posted a further message, saying "I always stand up for social justice and I am very sorry to anyone that I have offended x"
