After years of releasing chart-topping music, Doja Cat finally took home her very first win at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.
Yet the awardee would have missed her golden moment on stage as she was not present when her name was announced.
The “Been Like This” singer was taking a bathroom break and hilariously explained how she rushed the activity to make it in time to accept her win.
Doja Cat Almost Missed Her 1st Grammys Win
Doja Cat’s moment in time happened on April 3, 2022, at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony held at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
According to the New York Post, the artist almost missed the moment many others dream about, walking the lit-up stage to accept their award.
The singer won the category of Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her single “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA.
Doja Cat rushed onto the platform in heels. While breathing heavily, she joked, “I’ve never taken such a fast p*ss in my whole life,” explaining her absence.
The awardee graciously called SZA to join her on stage to “say something, give them something.” The co-creator carefully limped towards her while Lady Gaga assisted her with her gown.
The black beauty and “Good Days” singer, nominated for Best R&B Song, thanked God and her family. She humorously added that she was glad her friend made it back in time.
SZA then handed the mic over to Doja Cat, who could not hide her emotions. She tearfully admitted that winning her first Grammys meant a lot to her. She said:
“I like to downplay s – – t. But this? It’s a big deal. Thank you, everybody. I really appreciate it.”
The “Love To Dream” star expressed her gratitude to her team, friends, and family members, noting she would not be there without them.
Doja Cat also thanked her fans because she would be nowhere but for their support. She then tributed SZA for being everything to her. She concluded, “You are incredible. You are the epitome of talent. Be safe, take care.”
The “Woman” singer received a whopping eight Grammy nominations for 2022. “Kiss Me More” was in the category of Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
Doja Cat’s 2021 album “Planet Her” went up for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.
The star’s song “Need to Know” was nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance and her feature on Saweetie’s “Best Friend” went up for Best Rap Song.

Doja Cat was also upset that no fan was waiting for her the following day after she flew to the city to perform for them. In a tweet that has been deleted, she wrote:
“There was a storm in Paraguay, the show got canceled. When I left the next morning, there wasn’t one person outside the hotel waiting for me. Let that sink in.”
Things escalated when the star expressed that she wishes she never bothered putting in efforts towards the show, writing:
“I regret spending all the time I did getting ready that day for the show. I’ve been busting my a– every day to put on for you, but god bless. (sic).”
The singer had another show in Brazil but felt she did not give her best that night. She tweeted her sentiments in an apology post, sending her love and promising to do better next time.
Yet Doja Cat’s backlash only worsened from there. Three hours later, she changed her Twitter name to “I quit” and announced that she was done with the music industry. She wrote:
“it’s gone, and i don’t give a f— 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 this is a f—ing nightmare unfollow me.”
