Doja Cat proved the show must go after she recovered flawlessly from a gnarly fall while performing at Miami nightclub E11even on Saturday night, leaving many spectators wondering she if she took the tumble on purpose.
“There were certain people who thought it was part of an act and other people that were, like, ‘ohh’,” an eyewitness told Page Six. “But she fully owned it.”
A video of the fall surfaced online, showing the 25-year-old jumping and pumping her fist while performing her hit “Streets” before slipping on a few dollar bills that fans had thrown onto the stage.
“She literally fell, went on her butt and then went from her butt to her knees and started swinging her hair around,” the spy said.
In the clip, Doja Cat can be seen getting up and immediately getting back into her song without skipping a beat. We’re told she even extended her set to perform a total of about 10 songs for the hyped-up crowd.
“She was so fine because she was so amped up,” the spy said.
After the pop star got off stage, staff at the venue checked on her to make sure she was OK, but she was not hurt and continued partying for at least 30 minutes at a private table, the spy said. The “Best Friend” singer was accompanied by three guests, including Ty Dolla Sign and his girlfriend.
“The crowd was going nuts for her,” the witness added. “She did not perform like a club performance, it was much more like a concert.”
While her neon orange stilettos completed her performance look of an on-trend pink top with cutouts and a white skirt that revealed a matching pink thong, the high-heeled shoes were partially to blame for the “Say So” singer’s fall.
The event, which took place amid Miami’s Swim Week fashion shows, was meant to honor Doja Cat’s release of her latest album, “Planet Her.” E11even execs gifted the “Kiss Me More” singer with a custom cake on the red carpet to celebrate.
We’re told tables were sold out and that even “big spenders” were left waiting.
