Doja Cat recently sat down with Missy Elliot to discuss her meteoric rise in stardom.
In the latest issue of Interview, Doja is seen in conversation with the “Work It” rapper to talk about how she feels about her success in the music industry. Doja appears to self-reflect sharing, “When it comes to rap I could be better. I think everybody feels that way with their own art, in all kinds of ways. But I see all these incredibly talented rappers around me, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m doing pop, but I should focus on my pen now more than ever.’ I’m good, and I can be funny and charming, and I can do little punchlines here and there, but I need to talk about my life more, and about what’s going on.’”
Elliott chimes in to explain the importance of growth, but that staying authentic in her music is just as necessary, “For my first album, I didn’t listen to the radio. I didn’t watch videos. I didn’t do any of those things, and I didn’t realize how much that helped me at the time. But it helped, because me and Timb, we didn’t mimic. So if we did something far-left, we weren’t afraid, because we didn’t know what was hot anyway.”
Doja also discusses how she is sometimes self-conscious in her rhymes, often leading to writer’s block. She also talks about how she has yet to feel the effects of her rising popularity, “The thing is, I haven’t been out in the world yet and seen people screaming and going crazy. I’ve had fans at shows that were going crazy, and one who chased me, but I still feel normal. Also, COVID didn’t let me understand what Hot Pink did for my fans, because I had to cancel the tour. None of that was able to happen, so I still don’t really know.”
