'Everybody here gets home safe': Doja Cat STOPS concert midway to help fan in distress
The singer's fans lauded her gesture which comes close on the heels of Travis Scott's Astroworld tragedy which left 10 dead
Legendary artist Doja Cat is being praised online for doing a Billie Eilish at a recent concert. The 26-year-old Los Angeles native was performing at Lollapalooza Argentina on Saturday when she stopped her set midway for a fan who needed help. The singer's fans lauded her gesture which comes close on the heels of Travis Scott's Astroworld tragedy which left 10 dead.
The 'Kiss Me More' songstress was performing at Lollapalooza Argentina on Saturday, March 19 when she stopped her set four five minutes to bring help to a fan.
Towards the latter half of her performance, the 26-year old songstress suddenly started saying, 'Wait, wait, wait' and indicated that she wants the music to be cut right away. She continued, "Somebody needs help over there!" and pointed to the location where the fan was. As she called for help, other fans cheered her on. Doja then reconfirmed as she said, 'Is that right? Am I right? Somebody needs help?" in a way to assess the situation and figure out what needs to be done.

"I love you guys, I really do. But we can’t have that happening. I’m not just gonna… as long as somebody’s going out there," she said in a concerned tone.
The 'Need to Know' singer then said, "You guys, over there in that circle that just signal to me, when everything’s OK, you just go like this. Just do that. Just wait. If it’s not OK, don’t do anything, but once it’s OK, just do something with your hands like this,' to the crowd. After waiting for around five minutes for the crowd's approval, Doja informed the crowd that she "cannot keep going if things are not good".
Explaining her point of view, she said, "'I wanna ask you guys a question. Does it matter that everybody here gets home safe? Make noise if everybody who needs to get home safe gets home safe. Then you’re on my side, right? That’s all that matters."
She added, "This stuff happens. It’s a lot of people and people get crushed. It’s a lot. If you can see from the point of view I’m seeing it from, it’s a lot of people. It’s nobody’s fault, everybody wants to be here." As she grew worried about not being able to continue, she said, "You see what I’m saying? So don’t get sad or upset. I’ll be back. I will, I promise."
Eventually, everything was fine and she jumped back to her set.

This comes a more than a month after Billie Eilish stopped her concert in Atlanta midway to give an asthma inhaler to a fan who was experiencing a medical emergency. In a video posted by Billie's fan account, the singer asked her fan, "Do you need an inhaler?"
Billie then turned to her crew. "Do we have an inhaler? Can we just grab one?" the 'Bad Guy' singer asked before saying, "It's OK, we got one."
After making sure the fan got the inhaler, she then blew her a kiss and mouthed, "I love you," and urged the audience to "give her some time, don't crowd". "I wait for people to be okay until I keep going," Billie said later on stage.
