Singer Doja Cat got into an epic battle on Twitter that ended with her appearing to quit the music industry forever. However, 24 hours later TMZ reported she was going to be performing Friday night, proving “forever” didn’t really last that long.

It all started when the 26-year-old rapper took to the social media platform following a performance at Lollapalooza in Brazil Thursday night. 

The “Kiss Me More” composer apologized for not putting on a great performance but promised to do better next time. 

“I don’t think I gave Brazil a good enough show tonight at all and I’m sorry for that but thank you guys for coming out I f***ing love you and thank god we got another show tomorrow I promise I’ll do better,” she shared to Twitter.

This admission prompted fans from the Paraguay concert to come down on Doja Cat for not saying anything about the canceled show from earlier in the week. Meanwhile, the show in question was canceled outright due to extreme storms and flooding.

Doja Cat, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, retorted with, “I’m not sorry,” which started an all-out war between her and some South American fans and journalists.

Eventually, she wrote, “I moved on I’m just gonna let everybody be mad” and changed the name on her Twitter account to “I quit.”

“i’m not taking pictures again with anybody else after this tour,” she wrote.

During one fuming comeback, “I can’t wait to f***ing disappear and I don’t need you to believe in me anymore.” She added, “I’m a f***ing fool for ever thinking I was made for this this is a f***ing nightmare. Unfollow me.”

She also said, “This s*** ain’t for me so I’m out. Y’all take care.”

The Los Angeles-based artist rose to fame as a teenager after releasing music independently on SoundCloud and growing her fan base organically. Her song “So High” earned her a formal record deal with Kemosabe and RCA Records at the age of 17.

While Dlamini claimed to be done with music for good, the Grammy-nominated artist was scheduled to go on tour with The Weeknd in the summer of 2022, according to TMZ. Then the publication announced she would be taking the stage Friday in Brazil and is “looking forward to it.” 

Miley Cyrus was also scheduled to perform at the Paraguay concert and was en route when her plane was struck by lightning and had to make an emergency landing. “To my fans and everyone worried after hearing about my flight to Asunción. Our plane was caught in a major unexpected storm and struck by lightning,” she shared on Instagram early Wednesday morning.

“My crew, band, friends and family who were all traveling with me are safe after an emergency landing. We were unfortunately unable to fly into Paraguay. 💔 I LOVE YOU,” she added. 

The concert was canceled because of the dangerous weather and the aftermath of the storms.
