Doja Cat explained why she shaved her head during an Instagram Live on Thursday, in which she confessed that she ‘never liked’ having hair.
While reflecting on her edgy new buzzcut to her 24.1 million followers, the 26-year-old Grammy winner said she was ‘obsessed’ with her new look since chopping off her locks.
‘I feel like I was never supposed to have hair anyway,’ she told her fans. ‘I, like, don’t like having hair.’

She continued: ‘I never liked having hair. I cannot tell you one time, since the beginning of my life, that I’ve ever been like, ‘This is cool. I just don’t like to have hair.’
The Kiss Me More hitmaker also recalled feeling ‘so f**king exhausted when working out’ and wearing wigs, which she said would start ‘sliding and peeling off her head’ when she did ‘incredibly strenuous’ exercise.
‘I would be working out, but I couldn’t focus because I was more concerned about how I looked. Or how my hair was doing, and how to keep it adhered to my scalp,’ Doja noted.

The rapper added that sometimes she would put a beanie ‘on top of’ a wig ‘that’s on top of a wig cap that’s on top of braids.’
She continued: ‘I just can’t believe that it took me this long to be like, ‘Shave your f**king head.’
The musician concluded by saying she’s ‘really liking’ her shaved head.

This comes after her Instagram follow count has taken quite the hit after she hit out at Noah Schnapp for sharing their private DMs.
Last month, the singer slammed the Stranger Things star, 17, for posting messages where she asked him to set her up with his co-star Joseph Quinn, 29, telling her followers the move was ‘snake s**t’.
She soon came under fire from fans who highlighted that Noah is a minor, and now she has lost herself over 200k followers while the child star has gained nearly one million.
Uh-oh: This comes after her Instagram follow count has taken quite the hit after she hit out at Noah Schnapp for sharing their private DMs
As reported by UNILAD, social media analytics company Social Blade measured a jump in Noah’s follow count from 24.25m on Wednesday to 25.17m on Monday.
Meanwhile, Doja – real name Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini – saw her plummet from 24.34m to 24.14m over the same period of time.
At the time, Noah took to TikTok to post a now-deleted video that showcased private DMs between him and the Say So songstress, where she expressed a romantic interest in Stranger Things actor Joseph – who plays Eddie Munson.
Doja then hit back at the Will Byers actor, taking to Instagram Live to call him out for his duplicitous act, but added that she didn’t want her fans to overreact, since he is ‘just a kid.’
She began by saying she tried to make a, ‘three-minute TikTok but it didn’t work,’ so she opted for an Instagram Live video, adding she hoped someone was recording the video.
Haha! She soon came under fire from fans who highlighted that Noah is a minor, and now it’s clear the child star has come out on top
Doja said it was ‘socially unaware’ for Noah to share their private conversation online but added that young people do ‘dumb s**t’ and ‘f**k up relationships with people’ in her ranting video.
‘I’m just gonna say something right now, about the whole f***ing Noah Schnapp thing,’ she began.
‘I think that… to be fair, let’s try to be chill about it,’ Doja started. ‘Like Noah is a kid, but, I don’t even know how old he is, but he can’t be over – like there’s no way he’s over 21,’ she added of the actor, who is only 17.
Drama: The singer recently slammed Noah for posting DMs where she asked him to set her up with his co-star Joseph Quinn, 29, (pictured in June 2022) claimed the move was ‘snake s**t’
‘But when you’re that young, you make mistakes. You do dumb s**t. I’m like trying to be super fair,’ Doja, who wore a plunging Beginning Boutique dress in her video, continued.
‘You do dumb s**t, you say dumb s**t, you f***ing, f**k up relationships with people. You make mistakes,’ she added.
Doja went on to admit that she too had her ‘share of f**k ups’ and learned from her mistakes, before fuming that it was ‘like weasel s**t’ for him to share their chat online.
‘Like you’re supposed to do that so that you know you’re not supposed to do that in the future. I did my share of f**k ups so that I don’t f**k up again,’ Doja continued, although her tone distinctly changed.
Response: She began by saying she tried to make a, ‘three-minute TikTok but it didn’t work,’ so she opted for an Instagram Live video, adding she hoped someone was recording the video
‘But the fact that Noah did that, like went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and whack. That’s like borderline snake s**t, that’s like weasel s**t,’ she added.
‘And I’m not saying that that encapsulates his entire personality – like I don’t imagine Noah that way. Maybe he is, like a whole snake. But I didn’t see him that way,’ she said.
‘I made an assumption that he was gonna be chill about it and he went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing,’ she concluded.
The DM that New York-native shared showed Doja asking: ‘Noah can u tell Joseph to hmu. wait no. does he have a gf?’
He responded, ‘LMAOO slide into his dms,’ but she said, ‘idk his IG or twitter he doesn’t have a DM to slide into’, before he provided Quinn’s handle for her.
Neither Noah nor Joseph have responded publicly to Doja Cat’s video at this time.
The Kiss Me More singer had previously complimented the appearance of Noa after a Twitter user posted a shot of the actor that read ‘Doja look how fine Joseph Quinn is.’
The Grammy-winning artist responded: ‘It’s f***ing criminal.’ In May, she also tweeted: ‘Joseph Quinn fine as s**t.’
Wingman: Noah had shared the social media exchange with the musical artist, who wrote to him, ‘Noah can you tell Joseph to [hit me up] … wait no. does he have a [girlfriend]?’
