R&B singer/rapper Doja Cat not only put on a memorable live performance at the Grammys this past weekend, she was also nominated for three awards. Fans of the versatile artist were outraged when she walked away without a trophy, and many are comparing it to the Grammys’ treatment of hip-hop star Nicki Minaj.
Doja Cat’s Grammy Snubs Reminiscent Of Nicki Minaj?
Doja Cat was up for three Grammys this year: Best New Artist, Record of the Year (for “Say So”) and Best Pop Solo Performance (for “Say So”). She lost to Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles, respectively. Pissed-off Doja fans now think there’s a conspiracy against her, similar to the theory that the Grammys have a vendetta against Nicki Minaj — who is 0-for-10 on Grammy nominations and collaborated with Doja Cat on a “Say So” remix.

Doja Cat Talks About Her Grammys Fit
DC also made sure to dish on the motivation behind her Grammys gear. Ahead of her performance, Cat talked about wanting to look different at the awards show.
“I’m just really excited about this because I like something that’s like kind of out there,” she said of the look during the Live from E!: Grammy Awards pre-show. “I feel like I’ve been pretty toned down lately, but this is like something I’ve always wanted to do.” The artist said it didn’t take long to pick her outfit for the show. After laying her eyes on the eclectic dress, she knew it was the one for her. “There’s a couple things that I saw and I was like ‘Maybe not that’ and then I saw this and there’s this little detail on the jacket that’s a cat claw, and I feel like that is…what I want — like this is what I want to be,” she said.
