Well, boy, looks like fans still can't move on from the famous Taylor Swift-Kanye West beef. So when a past interview of Dua Lipa picking the rapper over Taytay rose from the dead, Swifties tryna' get to her and cut her off.
Dua Lipa was the most-streamed female musician in the U.K. last year, winning two BRIT Awards this week. In our new feature, she opens up about her Kosovo roots, working with Max Martin and the bad exes that inspired her billion-stream hit "New Rules." "I was going through a tough breakup. Someone who made me feel like I wasn't good enough," she tells us. "But when I wrote this song, I wanted it to seem like he couldn't get enough of me."

In her recent interview with Rolling Stone, the British popstar revealed that she received death threats and "snake emojis" after she picked Mr. West over the "Look What You Made Do" singer back in 2016. "I wasn't thinking about their beef," she explained. "I was thinking about their music, and Taylor is amazing, but I'm such a hip-hop fan that I would probably choose Kanye over anyone... They were sending me snake emojis for, like, three days straight. They're like, 'I hope you die.' I'm like, 'Yo! I literally didn't say anything.' "

It used to be mad love between Dua and Swifties after she was spotted wearing Taylor's merch a month before the video resurfaced.
