Doja Cat Says She Isn't Having Fun Making Music Anymore
"I'm doing all this shit that I don't fuckin' wanna do"
Published Nov 25, 2021Doja Cat has had a pretty major couple of years — just this week she was nominated for eight Grammys — but hopping on Instagram Live recently, the pop star and rapper told fans that she isn't necessarily having a great time now that she's entered the industry big leagues, saying "I'm doing all this shit that I don't fuckin' wanna do."
"I just mean, make music like, willy nilly, have fun and just jam and make some shit. I haven't done that in maybe five years it feels like," she explained. "I'm doing all this shit that I don't fuckin' wanna do. I don't want to take fuckin' pictures. Like, yes, planning a photoshoot is very fun. Capturing a concept, capturing a visual idea, like something like that… I love fashion. I really do."
"Do I want to do that shit because I have to? No! No, I don't! But I feel pressured to do shit like that," she continued. "I don't want to do that. I want to be home. I wanna play fuckin' – I wanna make music. I wanna play fuckin' video games. I wanna be doing this shit… like, complaining on Live."
Doja started out making music on Soundcloud — her breakout 2018 song "Mooo!" was a jokey novelty more than anything — so it's not necessarily a huge shock that she'd find the regimented grind of pop stardom a little draining.
She's also really good at being a pop star, so hopefully, she finds a way to balance things out.
Doja Cat's last album was this year's Planet Her.
