Doja Cat Thinks She 'Defeated A Large Beast' After Fans Unfollow Her

Doja Cat

The 27-year-old rapper continues to distance herself from her former fans.


If you liked Doja Cat’s hit songs from the past few years, she probably doesn’t care if you’re still a fan of hers.

Just last month, Cat started throwing some serious shade toward her so-called Kittenz fanbase. “If you call yourself a ‘Kitten’ or f*cking ‘Kittenz,’ that means you need to get off your phone and get a job and help your parents with the house,” the singer and rapper declared.

This series of social media posts led to a mass unfollowing from fans who felt like the singer was “ungrateful” for their support. However, Cat continues to double down on her tactic to distance herself from people who used to consider themselves her fans.

“Seeing all these people unfollow makes me feel like I’ve defeated a large beast that’s been holding me back down for so long,” Cat wrote in an Instagram story shared on Wednesday, August 17. “And it feels like I can reconnect with the people who really matter and love me for who I am and not for who I was. I feel free.”

This is an extremely unusual move for a musician when it comes to their relationship with fans. In fact, popstars like Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj have taken the route of constantly interacting with their fans, thanking their support, and crediting them for the success they’ve achieved in their careers.

In turn, there have been a few recent cases when Britney Spears had to clap back at fans who were seemingly acting “worried” about the singer and crossed several boundaries while claiming to be “protecting” her. This isn’t necessarily what’s happening to Doja Cat, but it appears that she is also bothered by the idea that fans know who she is and what’s in her best interest, or that she belongs to a group of people who have liked her music.

This is certainly a nuanced and complex situation – and we’ll stay tuned to see how things will play out between Doja Cat and her former fans.
