Doja Cat, 25, certainly turned heads when she took center stage at Austin City Limits music festival on October 2. The “Say So” hitmaker performed her biggest hits while rocking a unique, multi-patterned crop top that bared her toned abs. The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards host, born Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, also donned ripped leggings and a pair of platform shoes, as she styled her blonde tresses in a sleek, straight ‘do.
She previously opened up to Missy Elliott during a sit down with Interview, about what inspires her as an artist. “Even though I was born in 1995, I’m stuck in 2010, or 2004. I feel like I need to revamp my sound, but I’m also having a lot of fun, so f*** it, who cares?”
Doja continued, “I’m good, and I can be funny and charming, and I can do little punchlines here and there, but I need to talk about my life more, and about what’s going on … there’s personal stuff that happens in my life that I don’t talk about in my music. I also kind of don’t care.”
While she’s already released a slew of hits, the A-listers still has some bangers locked in the vault. “I have some songs that I so want to put out that are probably six years old. They are crazy. I sampled something that I’d probably never get the rights to,” she explained.
Her latest performance comes a few weeks after she hosted the VMAs! Doja arrived at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn wearing a strapless, black corset with a dark purple wrap draped around her body. She paired the ‘fit with towering red pumps and matching thigh-high, red latex socks.
The chart topper accessorized with a stone necklace and several silver rings, as she pulled her curly tresses back into a half up/half down style. Later in the evening, she took to the stage to perform a rendition of “Been Like This” while floating high above the stage in a red jumpsuit.
