Cat has your tongue? Doja Cat fully embodied her feline nature at the 2023 Met Gala on May 1, reacting as if she were a real cat during her entire Vogue red carpet interview with Emma Chamberlain. While Chamberlain may have intended to get legitimate answers out of Doja, the 27-year-old rapper had other plans. “Okay, so tell me all about this,” Chamberlain said, gesturing to Doja’s Oscar de la Renta look, complete with sparkly cat ears and facial prosthetics. But instead of giving coherent words, Doja just meowed into the microphone.
“I mean wait, so who made it?” Chamberlain asked, seeking further clarification. But when Doja reacted the same way, Chamberlain had no choice but to continue the conversation herself, assigning meaning to Doja’s purrs and unexpectedly sharpening her improvisational skills. “Wow, okay … so something else,” Chamberlain said in all seriousness.
Chamberlain later asked Doja to “go into detail” about her inspiration for the Met Gala, encouraging her to spare no details. Doja took a deep breath and proceeded to give a longer answer (at least by cat standards), meowing three times and getting Chamberlain to cover her mouth in pleasure. As the interview drew to a close, she meowed one last time, as if to say, “Bye!”
This was Doja’s first appearance at the Met Gala and her outfit did not disappoint. In honor of the theme of “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” Doja paid tribute to the late fashion designer’s feline love. More specifically, his own beloved pet, Choupette. But as good as her fashion was, it was moments like this that brought her inspiration to life, and stars like Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have already recreated the interview on TikTok. Besides, from the look on Doja’s face, she seemed to have had as much fun acting like Choupette as we did watching her.
