Dua Lipa may be one of the most successful pop stars in the world but she also struggles with the pressures of social media sometimes.

The 24-year-old singer has millions of followers but she says she gets negative comments sometimes and said "some days maybe I feel a little bit more vulnerable and I dive in and I almost go looking for things I don't want to see."

She also said she thinks people should be "nicer to one another".

Other singers like Selena Gomez have also spoken out about social media and how it can be damaging for people her age.

Dua Lipa says she has to log off her social accounts if comments by trolls get too much for her.

She said: "People feel like they can say things because they're hiding behind a computer screen and for me it's important to use social media in bite sizes - as long as it makes me feel good, and the second it doesn't, I like to take some time away from it."

She's encouraging people to be kind to ourselves and one another to make the online world a safer experience.
