If you're constantly stalking Dua Lipa's Instagram like I am, you might know that the singer has been traveling quite a bit lately.

Her latest travels have her in Ibiza to celebrate her 28th birthday with family and friends. And in a recent video originally posted to her sister Rina Lipa's stories, Dua is seen grilling some shrimp for a large feast.

But, um, hang on a sec. Feels like we're missing something.

Let's zoom in a bit. Is she even cooking these? Is the grill on? Why are they just in a pile like that?! I have so many questions.

I'm definitely no chef, just a friendly pescatarian, but I feel like there should be visible smoke or flames or a sizzle — IDK! Needless to say, everyone is just as equally confused as I am.

doesn’t even look like there’s fire under it 😭 they really could’ve staged it better

She must be cooking them things on low low cause I don’t see one puff of grill smoke

Naturally, everyone is convinced it's staged.

The original video caption from @PopCrave is also hilarious and gives such "Look! Celebrities do normal things, too!" energy. You might just catch me wearing "Dua Lipa grilling shrimp in new video" merch soon.

It really throws me back to the "Kendall Jenner cucumber" days. They're just like us, you guys! I promise!

TBH, Dua's shrimp look like they're cooked through at least (otherwise they'd be gray), so that grill must've been turned on at some point. But, like, why are they all stacked on top of each other?! I think that's my biggest gripe.

At the end of the day, Dua Lipa could serve me raw shrimp and I'd still thank her endlessly for giving me such an incredible opportunity.
