Rapper/singer/songwriter Doja Cat, through a series of not entirely clear Twitter posts, announced in March 2022 that she will retire from music. The profanity-laden comment came as a shock to fans since the artist received a career-best of eight Grammy nominations earlier this year. Here’s everything we know so far about Doja Cat’s retirement.
Though not an explicit declaration that she was definitively quitting music, Doja Cat posted the following statement in response to fan outrage about not seeing her at a cancelled show in Paraguay.
it’s gone and i don’t give a fuck anymore i fuckin quit i can’t wait to fucking disappear and i don’t need you to believe in me anymore. Everything is dead to me, music is dead, and i’m a fucking fool for ever thinking i was made for this this is a fucking nightmare unfollow me
Shortly after, Doja Cat posted an apology for the comments, saying that she does owe her fame to her fans and is very grateful for everything they have done for her.
She then took the opportunity not to go back on her comments but to restate them. Her following response to a comment about her retirement came as this five-word statement:
yes the fuck i am
Though there is no date or official announcement as to the details of her retirement, she has currently left the open-ended discussion at this final comment. She has continued to make public appearances, so her retirement is not immediate.
