Dua Lipa took over as host of Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday and interviewed Gwen Stefani about living on a ranch in Oklahoma with her boyfriend Blake Shelton.
Lipa is stepping in for Kimmel who took the summer off to spend more time with his family. The singer accidentally referred to Shelton as Stefani’s husband.
“Well, he’s not my husband, but that sounded cool when you said it,” Stefani replied before detailing how members of her family – including her three sons, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6, and a handful of her family members – stayed at Shelton’s ranch near the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. “All of a sudden like work is over and you just get to like indulge in just being on this ranch and every day was like a new thing – like a baby armadillo today or we got baby wild hog,” she said.
During a rapid-fire round, Stefani said her son once saw a ghost and that she has been mistaken for Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera.
Stefani is set to appear on a remix of Lipa’s “Physical” along with Mark Ronson. The track will appear on Lipa’s upcoming project Club Future Nostalgia: The Remix Album, which arrives on August 21st.
Lipa also went undercover during the episode and chatted with some seniors to gauge their thoughts on her songs and dress sense. In the segment footage, titled “Who-a Lipa,” Lipa starts off with a general question about pop music before honing in on herself.
“Do you know who Dua Lipa is?” she asks.
Some of the replies included, “Who?” “Is that a person?” and “Dua Mita?” Another person misheard her completely, saying “The Doobie Brothers?”
Lipa then played them a clip of her song “Break My Heart” – then heard their reviews.
The reviews ranged from positive – “Love it, love it, love it!” one woman exclaimed – to not-so-great: “I don’t know, she might do well on TikTok,” another said.
Lipa tried cluing the seniors in on her true identity by showing them a photo of the song’s artist (herself).
“That’s terrible,” one woman said, referring to Lipa’s crop top in the photo. “If I had a daughter, I wouldn’t want her to go out in that.” “It looks like she’s trying too hard,” another commented.
