Doja Cat has informed her fans that while she does intend to retire, she still has several contractual obligations to fulfill first.
“for those who are seeing me at the after hours tour, i’m not bailing. But me not bailing doesn’t mean my a** isn’t gonna disappear right after. i still got s—t i gotta do. and a lot of y’all think cuz i post a f—kin picture it means i’m not out. Pic doesn’t = music GOOFY,” the singer tweeted.
In a separate tweet, she added: “so yes that still means i got videos to film i got performances to do and I got content to drop so i’m pooping it out and dippin. i ain’t gone yet.”
Doja Cat announced that she would be retiring from music after she came under fire for not performing during a storm in Paraguay.
“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,” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “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.”
Since her career took off, Doja has frequently found herself at the center of controversy. There were calls for her to be canceled after she was accused of being in a right-wing group chat.
“I used to be on Periscope a lot. I’d be live for 10 or 12 hours at a time. I’d be making beats, and they weren’t any good, but it was fun. I would just be yelling at and roasting people, and they would be like, “Damn, why are you so mad?” But then some people would think it was funny and go along with it. That was me back then, and I love going in on people, but I stopped because with a big platform, you don’t want to hurt anybody,” she explained. “You have power and you’re looked at a certain way, and if you go in on people and s—t, it doesn’t help you or them, and they can tear you down more than you can tear them down.
