THE glamour of the Grammy Awards was a world away for Dua Lipa at the weekend, when she was charged at by excited fans.
The British superstar jetted to Mexico City for work but looked shaken after locals tried to grab her.
In footage on social media, the Don’t Start Now singer passed crowds of fans taking photos.
But they rushed at her when she was just metres from her car, forcing security to tear them away as she hurried to get into the vehicle.
It is believed Dua was left unscathed by the incident late on Saturday night. A source said: “News that she was in the area spread and obviously people were keen to catch sight of Dua.
“But it turned nasty when two fans rushed up to her. They really ran at her and it looked scary.
“Dua looked really uncomfortable. Thankfully security was there to drag the people away because who knows what could have happened.”
Earlier the star shared a photo on Instagram, suggesting she was in Mexico shooting an Yves Saint Laurent campaign. She wrote: “So happy to be back on set for the new Libre campaign with my @yslbeauty team.”
The week before she was in LA collecting her third Grammy, for Best Pop Vocal Album for her No1 album Future Nostalgia. Dua moved to LA with boyfriend Anwar Hadid last year after being stuck in London during the first lockdown.
After Saturday’s scare, she may have wished she had stayed at home.
KLASS REDDY FOR WORK
MYLEENE brought a touch of Klass to her Smooth FM radio show in this sharp, tailored suit.
The former Hear’Say singer looked ready for business in the red two-piece, which she wore with heels and a quilted Chanel bag.
Last month marked the 20th anniversary of the group’s creation on telly talent show Popstars.
But while her ex-bandmates Kym Marsh, Suzanne Shaw, Danny Foster and Noel Sullivan were discussing a possible reunion, Myleene admitted last month her schedule was too busy to take part.
It just wouldn’t be the same without all five of them.
KT’S CHIPPER AS LOVE BLOOMS
THE sound of wedding bells is in the air once more for Scottish singer KT Tunstall.
The Suddenly I See songwriter has revealed she would walk down the aisle once more after finding her soulmate in music producer Jarom Rowland.
They met after her first marriage to her band’s drummer Luke Bullen broke down in 2012. In an exclusive interview, KT said: “I love marriage, and I love love, so yes I’d consider getting married again.
"But I’d much prefer to be a guest at the wedding than the bride. As much as that sounds ridiculous, I’m not into being the centre of attention.
“I think finding your soulmate is just a wonderful experience in life, and I wish it on everyone. I’ve found my soulmate and I’m very happy. And I’m very happy in Los Angeles. Life for me is about the journey and staying curious.”
While life in LA clearly suits KT, she is missing some home comforts.
The singer, who teamed up with a host of female stars for new track Together We Are Stronger, out now, said: “I really miss good Scottish proper chips.
“I crave them and a bit of fish the same length as my forearm covered in tomato ketchup from a chippy in Edinburgh at 1am. I’d eat the whole lot, but that doesn’t exist in America so being here is definitely good for my health.”
ORLANDO Bloom has spent far too long in LA – his morning routine sounds like a Gwyneth Paltrow spoof.
As well as talking about how practising Buddhism has stopped him going off the rails, he said: “I like to earn my breakfast, so I’ll just have some green powders that I mix with brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein.
"It’s all quite LA, really.”
I’ll stick to Cheerios.
ROBIN Williams made a secret X-rated version of the 1993 family-friendly film Mrs Doubtfire.
Director Chris Columbus said out-takes of rude jokes were made into an alternative version.
He explained: “He [Williams] would sometimes go into territory that wouldn’t be appropriate for a PG-13 movie, but certainly appropriate and hilariously funny for an R-rated film.”
However, Chris is apprehensive about releasing the footage of the late star and said “the best approach” would be to do so in a documentary about the movie.
I hope there’s a filmmaker somewhere who can make that happen.
TONY’S A SWINGER
MILEY Cyrus made even building sites look sexy in her 2013 video for Wrecking Ball.
But not many could look good swinging from a great height – least of all Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley, as my mocked-up pic shows.
He said on his Stars Cars Guitars podcast: “I’ve got an idea for my next video – me doing a Miley Cyrus special.
“But I’m thinking, ‘Supposing Tone got on a wrecking ball with hardly anything on’ . . . It’s not going to go down very well, is it?
"I’d be arrested.”
Sorry Tony, but even the thought of it is criminal.
ON A ROLL
LANA Del Rey released her seventh album, Chemtrails Over The Country Club, on Friday, and the next record is already on the way.
Just 24 hours later, she said her next effort, called Rock Candy Sweet, is due on June 1.
Charlotte’s lost her will to party hard
LOCKDOWN has really changed some people, not least ex-Geordie Shore hellraiser Charlotte Crosby, who says that after a year at home she no longer cares for partying.
The reality star turned 30 last May but when asked if she’d be celebrating this year instead, she said: “I just can’t really be bothered.
“We’ve been stuck in the house for a f***ing year. I really don’t care about standing in a pub in England – I want to go on holiday with my boyfriend and have a week abroad.”
In an exclusive chat, she said her life is unrecognisable compared to her old days: “Naturally, your life changes and I’m not that bothered about it any more.”
She’ll have to muster up some energy for her tour in October though, with tickets on sale now (livenation.co.uk).
She said: “It’s one-night live with me, imagine you’re on a night out with us.”
Hopefully that will be a night with the old Charlotte . . .
