Will Dua Lipa collaborate with Taylor Swift? Singer's SNL appearance as Marjorie sparks wild fan theories
Some fans believe that the tweet was Dua Lipa’s hint for the fans to indicate a new remix of Taylor Swift’s ‘Marjorie’ from ‘Evermore’ is coming soon
Dua Lipa appeared on ‘Saturday Night Live’ as the last musical guest for 2020 and her sizzling performance has sparked quite a few rumors on the Internet. Along with performing ‘Don’t Start Now’ and ‘Levitating’, the London born pop star also put up quite a show for a special SNL skit. In the skit, Dua appeared as Marjorie, prompting fans to ask, if she was promoting Taylor Swift’s latest released album ‘Evermore’?
After the episode aired, the ‘One Kiss’ crooner shared a snippet of her skit on Twitter. Since then, fans have been going bonkers with their theories, asking the 25-year-old Grammy-winning singer if a collab with Swift is on the table. Watch the clip here
Dua who has recently nabbed six nominations for Grammy 2021, performed from her latest hit album, ‘Future Nostalgia’. She kicked off the show with Grammy-nominated ‘Don’t Start Now’ donning a Leopard print dress. For ‘Levitating’, she chose a jellyfish attire which the fans believe to be ‘Ponyo’, a Japanese anime-inspired theme.
In the special skit, Dua as Marjorie appeared in a beige uniform and performed a bit which only looked like a confrontation scene of an ‘affair’. Was that a Taylor Swift’s 'Illicit Affair' reference? Fans are now certain a Dua Lipa x Taylor Swift collab is underway with all the Easter eggs dropped on the skit. A fan theorized, “SNL had dua lipa play someone named marjorie in 1944 and now just described the show teacher as “an illicit affair” taylor stans are writing this.” Some fans believe that the tweet was Dua Lipa’s hint for the fans to indicate a new remix of Taylor Swift’s ‘Marjorie’ from ‘Evermore’ is coming soon.
