Doja Cat is V Magazine’s latest cover girl.
In the accompanying interview that was published yesterday (July 17), the “Woman” hitmaker discussed how her upcoming projects will be totally different from her old work. “I do not consider myself a rock star,” she told the publication when asked if she was becoming more rock ‘n’ roll based on the outfit worn for the article’s photoshoot. “I have made pop music. I’m currently making rap, soul and R&B music with jazz elements. But this is a representation of how I feel. When I wear black, when I wear metal, or very scantily clad outfits, it’s all a representation of how angry, liberated and sexual I am.”
Back in May, Doja Cat told fans on social media that her previous albums had all been “cash grabs” and that listeners “fell for it.” To explain what she meant, the Los Angeles rapper said, “I have thrown fits my whole career because I have been making music that didn’t allow me to have a mental release.”
“I have been making music that is palatable, marketable and sellable, that has allowed me to be where I am. Now I am making music that allows me to express the way I feel about the world around me,” she continued. “These upcoming projects are going to be very different compared to everything I have done and I am excited about that. I do not care if people are not… Success is realizing that happiness is a possibility and sadness is temporary.”
As previously reported by REVOLT, Doja Cat announced her very first North American tour. “The Scarlet Tour,” which will feature special guests Ice Spice and Doechii kicks off on Halloween night (Oct. 31) in San Francisco. The 27-city trek will make stops in Chicago, Las Vegas, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Brooklyn, Newark, Detroit, and more until Dec. 13.
