Watch: Doja Cat stops show at Lollapalooza Argentina to help fan in distress

  • 21/03/2022

Footage has emerged of rapper Doja Cat stopping a performance over the weekend after spotting an audience member in distress.

It's yet another example of a musician being vigilant about the wellbeing of the crowds at their concerts in the wake of last year's Astroworld tragedy, which killed 10 people.

Doja Cat, 26, was performing in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires on Saturday night (local time) as part of the Lollapalooza festival when the incident occurred.

After spotting a concert-goer in trouble among the crowd, she stopped performing her song 'Options' and waited nearly five minutes before she was satisfied to continue the show.

"Yo, cut it! Wait, wait, wait... somebody needs help over there," she can be heard saying in the footage.

"I love you guys, I really do. We can't have that happening… I'm sorry, I can't keep going if things aren't good. I'm not going until the girl in the green shirt tells me it's OK. Hold on.

"Listen you guys, this is nobody's fault. This stuff happens, there's a lot of people and... people get crushed."

It's unclear exactly what happened in the crowd to make Doja Cat halt her performance, but she appears to be told that things are not OK several times before she's eventually informed that everything has been resolved.

"Let's go! Let's go! Let's go!" she then exclaims in the video, launching back into the show with her hit 'Say So'.

The full performance can be viewed below - the incident starts at around 48 minutes and 40 seconds in.
