  • Doja Cat showed off her new buzzcut and shaved her eyebrows in her latest Instagram Live video.

  • On Thursday, she told fans she shaved her head because she "never liked having hair."

  • She added that her hair and wigs would distract her during workouts.

Doja Cat said that she "never liked having hair" after appearing on Instagram Live with a shaved head.

The 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, went on Instagram Live Thursday to explain her radical change in appearance.

Doja said in the video that having hair was a "fucking nightmare" and that it got in the way during workouts.

"I feel like I was never supposed to have hair anyway," the Grammy award-winning rapper said. "I don't like having hair. I've never liked having hair. I cannot tell you one time since the beginning of my life that I've ever been like, 'This is cool.' I just do not like to have hair."

Doja continued: "I remember feeling so fucking just exhausted with working out. Whenever I went to go train — I had a trainer at one point — and I'd be wearing wigs and they would be getting tacky. They'd retack because of the moisture, and then they'd start sliding and peeling off my head when I'd be doing this incredibly strenuous thing."

Doja said that she couldn't "focus" on working out because she ended up being too concerned about her appearance and keeping her wigs on.

The "Planet Her" singer added that she is liking her shaved head.

"I just cannot believe it took me this long to be like, 'Shave your fucking head,'" she said. "I had like two eras where my hair would be out... What is the use of having hair if you're not gonna fucking wear it out?"

Doja then went on to shave her eyebrows while on the live video.

Doja is known for wearing daring outfits in concerts and during award shows.
