The worldwide fans of Doja Cat would be pleased to know that she is retracting her emotional outburst of quitting her musical career for good.
Earlier this year, the multi-award-winning songstress announced that she was done with music and not cut up for the superstar lifestyle.
Following her nod at the 2022 Grammy Awards ceremony, the “Kiss It Better” singer confirmed that, though she wants to walk away from the music scene, she would be doing the opposite.
Doja Cat Wants To Make Music Again!
While at the MGM Arena in Las Vegas for the 2022 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 15, Doja Cat told Live From E! hosts that she is not hanging up her music cape just yet.
The birth name of the American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini. She made her mark in the music industry after making and releasing music on SoundCloud as a teenager.
The “Woman” musician told hosts Justin Sylvester and Erin Lim about her desire to let her focus on music take precedence over other responsibilities. She said:
“But I think it’s also—I’m here because I made music, and I want to make music again. And I just—it’s like, how am I supposed to do that when I’m doing a bunch of other things?”
The hosts brought up Doja Cat’s shocking tweet in March where she announced that she was quitting music and asked if she meant the statement as a joke.
It turns out that the “Birds of Prey: The Album” artist meant what she wrote at the time in all seriousness but has had a change of heart. She stated, “it wasn’t a joke to me.”
The star’s 2021 chart-topping album “Planet Her” earned her a whopping eight nominations from the Recording Academy.
Doja Cat’s single featuring “SZA” titled “Kiss It Better” won a Grammy in the category of Pop Duo/Group Performance. She also ended her night at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards ceremony as a winner.
The “Get Into It” singer took home four Billboard awards. All these wins seemed to have given her clarity that she still has a thriving career in entertainment. She said:
“I’m getting a break, and that break is gonna be me making music—which is funny. It’s like, ‘I want to stop music,’ but I don’t. I wanna keep doing music.”

Fans in Paraguay and Doja Cat entered a beef when a storm in the area prevented her from giving them a scheduled performance.
In March, The Blast disclosed that the fans became very vocal online about waiting in the rain for hours only for the “Need To Know” singer to be a no-show.
Doja Cat was also upset not to find any supporters outside her hotel in the area. In a now-deleted tweet, 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 …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 “Streets” singer had another show in Brazil and tweeted that she did not think she gave them a good performance. Hours later, she changed her Twitter name to “I quit” and wrote in a since-deleted post:
“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.”
Doja Cat continued, “This s— ain’t for me, so I’m out. Y’all take care.” She previously opened up about not having any free time due to the other responsibilities attached to her music career.
In a candid Instagram Live update, the “Boss Bitch” star said, “I’m doing all of this s— that I don’t f—ing want to do. I don’t wanna take f—ing pictures… I love fashion… I love to dress up… I feel pressured to do s— like that. I don’t f—ing wanna do that.”
