Even With Much Success, Doja Cat Admits She’s Not Happy

Fame, money and success doesn't equal happiness.

Celebrity News

Doja Cat has had a very prosperous few years in the music industry. She dropped two albums within two years, which charted well on Billboard, and her songs “Streets” and “Say So” from her 2019 project Hot Pink took over the internet during the pandemic due to them going viral on TikTok.


She also took home countless awards from MTV’s EMA’s to the VMA’s which she hosted and now she’s nominated for a Grammy along with Saweetie for their hit song “Best Friend.” But even with all the success, Doja isn’t happy.

Recently, the dynamic performer took to Instagram Live and shared with fans about the pressures in her career and not enjoying her fame.

“And I mean [I want to] make music like willy nilly, like just have fun and just jam and make some shit. I haven’t done that in maybe five years, feels like,” she said. “I’m doing all this shit that I don’t fucking wanna do. I don’t wanna take fucking pictures. Like, yes…planning a photoshoot is very fun. Capturing a concept, capturing a visual idea, like something like that, I love fashion, I do. I really do. I love to dress up, I love all that shit. Do I wanna do that shit because I have to? No! No, I don’t.”

“But I feel pressured to do shit like that. I don’t fucking wanna do that. I wanna be home. … I wanna make music, I wanna play fucking video games,” she concluded.

This isn’t the first time the 26-year-old rapper has expressed not being happy. In October, Doja fired off a series of tweets about being “tired,” but has since deleted them. The tweets reportedly read, “I’m just tired and I don’t want to do anything. I’m not happy. I’m done saying yes to motherfuckas cuz I can’t even have a week to just chill,” she said.

“I’m never not working. I’m fucking tired. Alex is getting old he’s 68 years old and I can’t even be there for him. I wanna be alone. It’s not anybody else’s fault but mine anyway I just keep agreeing to shit I don’t wanna do in the future. It’s my own dumb-ass fault. And then I’m too tired to put any effort into this shit cuz I’m so run down from everything else.”

We hope Doja gets the rest she needs.

'P-Valley' & 10 Other Shows That Feature Empowered Black Characters

I vividly recall my mother implying that TV couldn’t teach me much of anything, but in reality, we know that representation teaches us a lot! It empowers us and highlights diverse ways of Black life (more so in recent television history) that vary from traditional to not so traditional – though this makes the impact no less real. Television shows like P-Valley highlight the importance of human decency over respectability politics, while other shows allow us to see the value in falling through life with our awkwardness.

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
