Doja Cat is responding to fans who have been expressing their concerns since she shaved her head.
“Just the whole ‘Are you okay, queen?’ s**t makes me want to rip my…I guess the hair that I have left out, and that would be my pubics,” she said on Instagram.
Explaining her reasons for shaving her head in a separate clip, the rapper said, “I feel like I was never supposed to have hair anyway. I don’t like having hair. I’ve 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.'”
Doja Cat debuted her shaved head — and then shaved her eyebrows herself during an Instagram Live on Thursday.

She told fans how she rarely wore her hair natural and found it hard to maintain, especially while doing things like exercising.
“I remember feeling so f**king, just exhausted with working out,” she shared.
“Whenever I went to go train—I had a trainer at one point—and I’d be wearing wigs and they would be getting tacky and retack because of the moisture, and then they’d start sliding and peeling off my head while I’d be doing this incredibly strenuous thing.”

Doja went on, “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.”
She admitted, “I just can’t believe it took me this long to be like, ‘Shave your f**king head,'” insisting that she’s “really liking this.”
