Dua Lipa doesn't warn ex boyfriends about her songs.

The 24-year-old singer performed her new hit 'Don't Start Now' - in which she sings ''I'm all good already, so moved on, it's scary, I'm not where you left me at all'' - at the Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards in Sydney this week, and she admitted while she doesn't want to be censored, she does try ''to be respectful''.

As quoted by The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column, she was asked if she warns former flames about her lyrics, and responded: ''Of course not.

''They're my stories but they're also done in a metaphor. I think for my privacy, and everyone's privacy, I still like to be respectful.''

Dua released her new single earlier this month, and she explained how the track is about entering a new chapter in her life.

She recently said: ''I chose to put this song out first so I could close one chapter of my life and start another.

''Into a new era with a new sound! It's about moving on and not allowing anyone to get in the way of that.

''It also felt like a natural first song choice as I made it with the brilliant same crew I made 'New Rules' with.''

The 'Hotter Than Hell' singer embarked on a ''new chapter'' in her love life in June, as she started dating model Anwar Hadid - following her split from on/off boyfriend Isaac Carew - and the couple made their first red carpet appearance together on Sunday (24.11.19) at the American Music Awards.

She said at the time: ''My date is my boyfriend. He's so handsome, right?''

She also revealed that 'Don't Start Now' was a good teaser for what people can expect from the rest of her upcoming album.

She added: ''The whole record has a theme going through it. It's very disco-inspired. It's '80s-inspired. It's fun. You're going to have a good time.''
