THE RISE OF DOJA CAT
It is safe to say that the trendsetter has come into her own in only a few years. The “Juicy” rapper first started gaining attention on TikTok in 2018, and at the time, it was for her viral song, “Moo, ([expletive] I’m a Cow.”
Since her days on Soundcloud, TikTok fame, and becoming a Billboard singer, Doja Cat has had her fair share of controversies. With every milestone she attained, there was a bit of fuss regarding what many have termed misconducts.
The 25-year-old has been called out for sexualizing the Hindu Culture on her music video for “So High” and accused of racial slurs. Despite all of these, the singer keeps reaching for more milestones and attaining them.
