Doja Cat Authenticity Shines : Doja Cat claimed losing online pals is like conquering a terrible creature during a summer when she and her followers didn’t get along.
The singer of “Attention” discusses a difficult period in a September 2023 Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” interview. Though she was in a hero magazine, she doesn’t consider herself one.
The 27-year-old Amala Dlamani told the magazine, “I believe that it’s important for me to show respect and love to the people I care about and for them to do the same for me.” She further stated that she should not be respected.
She said, “I present myself to the world using television and social media.” The positive comment makes me happy. I feel good when people fight bullying and internet abuse. My fans standing up for myself or others was one of the most touching things I’ve seen.
The hip-hop singer announced the news after being criticized for unpleasant public interactions with fans. Doja Cat and her claimed boyfriend, J Cyrus, smooched and cuddled in public, angering fans. Twitch star and comedian J Cyrus has been accused of emotional abuse in his community.
Your opinion of my personal life doesn’t matter. Never have and never will I care about your view of myself or my life. Get rid of unpleasant people. Haha!
Her Threads post imploring her “Kittenz,” faithful admirers, to find employment and support their families enraged them. Independence was her main point: “I get to live my life the way I want, make my own rules, express my style, and have my own attitude.” She even rebuffed a fan’s desire to show her affection, calling some admirers “weird.”
After that, the “Like That” singer deactivated her Threads account and lost over 500,000 Instagram followers due to summer difficulties.
Doja Cat told Harper’s Bazaar why fans react strongly when she “pushes boundaries,” like shaving her eyebrows or head.
She stated, “My thought is that if someone hasn’t encountered me, they don’t trust that I exist.” They behave like they own me and control me. I have a strong, uncontrollable reaction to large changes. I’ve agreed and enjoyed changing my appearance whenever I choose.
On Wednesday, Doja Cat posted on Instagram. She said seeing people unfollow her made her feel good. She felt like she had solved a major issue plaguing her. Now she can focus on those who love her and accept her as she is, not as she was. Freedom liberates her. She makes individuals feel free and more relatable when they communicate.
