Doja Cat's Skit Fails to Answer Hard-Hitting Questions: A Cringe-Worthy Attempt at Humor




I got to admit, Doja Cat's latest attempt at humor, "Doja Cat - Answers the Hard-Hitting Questions YTP," is a bit of a mess. This over six-minute-long skit, featuring Doja being interviewed by her alter ego, "Scarlet," seems like a half-hearted attempt to address the recent criticism surrounding her album rollout and fan interactions. But instead of delivering the witty comebacks and self-deprecating humor we've come to expect from Doja, the skit falls flat, leaving us with more questions than laughs.


The skit's main issue lies in its complete lack of genuine engagement with the criticisms Doja has faced. Instead of offering thoughtful responses or engaging in meaningful self-reflection, the skit relies on unfunny jokes, awkward exchanges, and a poorly executed alter-ego persona. Doja's alter ego, Scarlet, adds little to the conversation, serving more as an awkward mouthpiece for Doja's pre-written responses.


Was Bobby Althoff too busy?


 


 

I sat through the entire six minutes of this skit, and I can honestly say I felt embarrassed for Doja Cat. The jokes were lame, the exchanges were cringe-worthy, and the overall vibe was just stiff and uncomfortable. It's disappointing when an artist promotes content that leaves me questioning its purpose and wanting to fight over wasting my time.


Instead of relying on poorly executed humor, Doja Cat would be better off engaging in a real interview with a respected journalist or interviewer. This would allow her to address the criticisms directly, give her fans the transparency they deserve, and potentially salvage some of her public image. Alternatively, she could hire talented writers to create a genuinely funny sketch that addresses the drama surrounding her while still being respectful of her fans and her craft.


 




 


I know, I know, some people might say, "Oh, it's just a skit. Doja was just tRoLlInG." But if that's the case, then it's an expensive troll. This skit had a whole set and cost money to produce, and to not get one laugh out of it is an epic fail.


And let's talk about the "Scarlet" alter ego for a minute. Successful female rappers who have employed alter egos have done so by creating personas with distinct personalities and unique styles. Fans of these artists often refer to their alter egos as separate entities, engaging in discussions as if they were interacting with two different individuals. In contrast, "Scarlet" is nothing more than Doja Cat with red paint and wet hair. She offers no new insights, no comedic value, and no reason for anyone to want to see more of her. Doja Cat's decision to incorporate Scarlet into the skit was a misguided attempt to add depth and intrigue, but it ultimately served as a distraction and a reminder of the skit's overall lack of effort.


In the end, if Doja Cat insist on addressing her critics, then she needs to find a less cringe-worthy way. But, we know she won't because she has already been labeled the "creative," "diverse," and "anti-celebrity" one. Somehow, this skit will likely be positioned as a manifestation of those qualities, even though we all know it was just plain awful.
