Doja Cat has responded to fans concerns after she decided to shave off her hair and eyebrows, insisting that she’s ‘fine’ and urging people to stop commenting on her new look. 

The rapper, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, showed off her new shaved-head look last week, before she live-streamed herself shaving off her eyebrows while more than 20,000 fans watched. 

Her decision led to speculation from fans, some of whom thought Doja may have been struggling with her mental health – however, the 26-year-old has now made it clear that is not the case.


Taking to Instagram Live, she said: “I’m rich, I’m fine. The whole, like, ‘Are you OK, queen?’ s**t makes me want to rip my – well, I guess the hair that I have left out. It makes me want to rip my f***ing pubic hair out – I absolutely hate it.”

She went on: “People think that, for some reason, I’m, like, not well because I don’t have hair on my face or on my head.

“It’s just a wild f***ing world we live in. Shaving my head made me feel really good because I know that everyone that liked me before my head was shaven and doesn’t like me now was never worth it.”

In another clip she said: ​​“It’s funny to me that people are in any way shocked or taken aback by me being bald.

“Nothing changed, I just have no hair. 

“But now that I’m bald and my eyebrows look f***ing awesome, people are like, ‘What? I don’t like you.’ And I’m like, ‘Good. Get out of here'."


She explained that she very rarely showcases her natural hair and often dons wigs while working anyway, 

Doja 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 do not like to have hair’.”

Adding that wearing a wig while doing a workout was hard as she was 'more concerned' about how her looked.

"I would be working out, but I couldn't focus because I was more concerned about how I looked," she told her followers. "Or how my hair was doing, and how to keep it adhered to my scalp."
