Speaking to The Sunday Times, Dua said: ‘There is a lot less scrutiny of male pop stars… People like to just objectify women, before explaining the impact.

‘Online criticism can make you feel like you’re not good enough, so I was nervous. It felt like a breeding ground for hate and stopped me being proud of my achievements.

‘Instead of feeling something was amazing, it made me feel I wasn’t worth it…we have to protect our mental health.

‘I wish social media companies could make it a safer space. It’s just become unkind,’ insisted the star.

Dua explained how she wants to start a ‘conversation’ about gender disparity, because she feels that the problems begin from a very young age. 

Elsewhere in the interview, she revealed that on her way home from school, she would put keys between her knuckles for fear of boys.

She vented: ‘We constantly change the way we are so we don’t get harassed. Cover our bodies so boys don’t say things.

‘From when we are kids we are told the way boys act towards us is completely normal.’
