Pop star Doja Cat has landed herself in controversy after a series of tweets were published following a cancelled concert in Paraguay, within which she claimed that she is ‘quitting’ the music industry.
Doja Cat, who is currently on tour in South America, has publically responded to fans who claim that she didn’t pay enough attention to Brazil throughout her travels and have criticised her for the cancellation of a concert due to a storm. One unsatisfied fan even tweeted to Doja, branding her as “public enemy #1” to which she replied “I’m not sorry”.
“I don’t think I gave Brazil a good enough show tonight at all and I’m sorry for that but thank you guys for coming out”, the singer wrote.
The star rose to popularity after her song ‘MOO ‘ became a viral hit in 2018, and her music has been a staple of TikTok trends ever since. She has now amassed over 22 million followers on Instagram alone.
As tweets from dissapointed fans grew, Doja snapped back with a tweet that read “i don’t give a f**k anymore i f***in quit i can’t wait to f***ing disappear and i don’t need you to believe in me anymore. Everything is dead to me, music is dead, and i’m a f***ing fool for ever thinking i was made for this”.
The singer later changed her name on Twitter to “i quit”. When a sympathetic fan tweeted to Doja reminding her to focus on her supporters that “care and understand” she responded, “i don’t have to focus on anything because I quit”.
Doja’s twitter name has since been updated to ‘I quit still’, following media coverage of her tweets which doubt the authenticity of her threats to stop making music.
Doja Cat, who’s real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, seems to have gone back on her statement about not needing her fans. On Saturday she wrote, “I can travel, I can eat good food, I can see new people, I can smile, I can make memories that I dreamed of having, I can laugh, I can support my family and my friends, I can learn about the world, and I can give back to everyone because of you. I do owe people s**t. I owe a lot.”
It remains unknown whether or not the star was serious about leaving the music scene, although she is still scheduled to perform at the Grammy’s come April and remains on her tour despite the tweets.
