Doja Cat revealed her most inspiring VMA moment

Despite, the singer’s previous backlash from fans regarding resurfaced racist remarks online, she’s managed to successfully move forward. In her recent three-minute E! News interview, Doja Cat revealed key details about her rising career.

Leading up to her first legendary VMAs hosting, the E! News interviewer candidly picked her brain about her most memorable VMA moment.

When asked what defining moment undeniably inspired her, she eagerly said, “It feels like it was yesterday, but when I saw Beyoncé pregnant doing ‘Love On Top.’ That was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. You can do anything, you can really do anything and I feel like Beyoncé created that lane.”

Contrary to previous accusations claiming that she’d “mocked Beyoncé” in an old TikTik video, she persistently proclaimed her admiration.

According to Canoe, she said, “Beyonce is the reason why I believe I can be who I am. Beyonce is one of the driving forces of who I am in my career. Beyonce is undeniably talented. And every f—— time anyone has ever come for Beyonce I’m there, and that’s all I have to say.”

Doja Cat addressed being compared to other artists

Although in the public eye comparing between artists may seem normal, to some celebrities it can be a sore spot. Yet, Doja Cat revealed that it doesn’t bother her.

Following the “Say So” singer’s credit to Beyoncé, she was asked how she felt when fans relate her style, music, and performances to artists like Nicki Minaj or Lady GaGa. Shockingly Doja Cat noted, “You have to accept that.”

She continued, “People have to be able to connect you to someone, and it happens with every big star in the world. You have to accept that. That’s just how it is.”
