Anastasia Carlon, Staff Writer

The singer-rapper Doja Cat recently announced she’s quitting music. After a storm in Paraguay, Doja Cat was unable to perform at the Asunciónico music festival. However, before the storm, Paraguayan fans surrounded the star’s hotel and sang her songs. When she wouldn’t come out after the storm, Paraguayan fans left the hotel and were enraged. 

On Twitter, the fans began to complain about the situation and call the rapper derogatory terms. With the sudden influx of backlash, Doja tweeted a series of tweets announcing her retirement. “it’s gone and i don’t give a – anymore i quit i can’t wait to disappear and i don’t need you to believe in me anymore. Everything is dead to me, music is dead, and i’m a fool for ever thinking i was made for this, this is a nightmare unfollow me” was the first tweet stating her retirement.

 “This ain’t for me so I’m out,” she wrote. “Y’all take care.” She also changed her Twitter display name to “i quit.” Doja’s original announcement was posted in the replies of a thread claiming she had mistreated her fans in Paraguay after the Asunciónico music festival. Some claimed she was being rude by not greeting them outside her hotel after the festival was called off. Other fans pointed out that she made no mention of the cancellation on social media but did tweet about a performance in Brazil the following day, writing that she didn’t think she gave a good show, but that “we got another show tomorrow” and “I promise I’ll do better.”

According to Doja, she plans to fulfill other musical duties in addition to the After Hours tour. “i got videos to film i got performances to do and I got content to drop so i’m pooping it out and dippin,” she tweeted. “i ain’t gone yet.” She was also scheduled to perform at the Grammys on Sunday.

Ethan Lebel let his feelings out stating, “This is really sad. I love her and her music, and I can’t imagine her quitting so early in to her career. I don’t think this is the end, maybe just a break.”
