I think some people look at things and they use certain pieces of pop culture or content to cope with this really messed up world that they live in. The world can be really crazy. Some people have to find something that brings them joy. That’s what my work is doing, and that’s great, that’s what I want. I want people to feel, but at the end of the day, I don’t want to crush their dreams. The truth is that ‘Mooo!’ was made because I was bored in my room. There’s no deeper meaning. But I do the same thing that they do. There are so many songs that don’t mean anything that I apply to my life, that I feel I can cope through. So I get it. – Doja Cat
I feel really good about Planet Her; it’s a solid album. There are things here and there that I’d love to change all the time, but do I enjoy performing it? Absolutely. When I do something, I try not to put too much of a concept behind it. I usually vibe and make songs, and whatever sounds good I smash it together. A lot of people don’t appreciate or respect that, and I understand why they don’t. – Doja Cat
