Doja Cat Explains Why She Showed Up on Instagram Wearing a Neck Brace

Later that day, the 27-year-old rapper gave people a background story of the neck brace picture she shared on Instagram. She did an interview during an appearance at Victoria's Secret World Tour 2023 in New York. While speaking to an interviewer from Entertainment Weekly, Doja Cat revealed that she wasn't injured at all. In fact, the neck brace belonged to her date, who was with her at the event. The clip can be seen below.

"And I'm surprised we're not seeing you with a neck brace tonight," the interviewer said to Doja Cat before inquiring about her recent picture on Instagram. "What gives with that Instagram post? You said you were fine. But."

Doja coyly responded: "So my friend here, my date, my lovely date, got whiplash. He takes it off sometimes. So, I stole it from him."

Afterward, the Los Angeles rapper reiterated that she was perfectly fine.
