Doja Cat Trolls Her Fans While Releasing Name of New Album

by Carmella D'Acquisto

There’s no denying Doja Cat is an icon. From consistently pushing the boundaries of fashion, to dropping some of the most anthem-worthy tracks of the 2020s, Doja has earned her place in the limelight. But unlike other mega-celebrities, Doja is online; communicating with her fans and, dare we say, sometimes being a bit of an internet troll. 



On Tuesday, Doja took to the internet to announce the name of her new album. But the title reveal isn’t what makes her string of tweets so memorable– she also told her fans that her two latest albums were just “mediocre pop” that she made to profit, and that all her fans were fooled. 

Planet Her and Hot Pink were cash-grabs and yall fell for it,” she penned on Twitter. “Now I can go disappear somewhere and touch grass with my loved ones on an island while yall weep for mediocre pop.”  


After tweeting about her last two albums, she shared that fans were wrong about the title of her upcoming album. “It’s not called hEllMoUth either it’s called ‘First of All‘ and yes I’m announcing the album title right now,” she tweeted.



Some fans didn’t care, and just wanted her to quickly drop the album, while others were still reeling about her “mediocre pop” comments, hoping that she was trolling about that assessment.



Now, Doja is feeding off the feedback and haters. Just hours ago, she returned to twitter to let her fans know she’s reading through everyone’s comments. 

“Everyone so angyyyyyyyyyyy MUUUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHA,” she tweeted. Following up with “My stage name is no longer doja cat its Emcee Flapchunks the 3rd and youll address me as such” 



This isn’t the first time Doja took to social media to share her goofy and unfiltered thoughts with the world, or even just to play a little trick on her audiences. Not even a month ago, Doja went on Instagram Live to “preview” her new album, where she played one second snippets. As fans rolled into the live, and asked her to hear more, she went on Youtube to just play a bunch of random beats and songs, laughing while reading comments. A lot of her fans got in on the joke, asking her to freestyle or laughing with her, but others not so much. “Bro, are you okay?” one instagram user asked. 



Doja’s candor and presence on social media leaves her vulnerable to lots of negativity, bad takes, and unwanted feedback about her music, her talent and her choices. While Doja is rolling with the punches, it may be the haters that fuel some of her more troll-like takes– or at least that’s what we’re hoping, because we’re big fans. 

Hot Pink and Planet Her were both award winning albums that had several viral singles including Get Into It (Yuh), Kiss Me More, and Ain’t Shit from Planet Her and Say So and Like That from Hot Pink. Maybe Doja is just trolling for more exposure, but Doja says that these albums were mediocre– well, we’re excited to see what could possibly come next.
