The singer covered "You're The One I Want" for a new Pepsi commercial.
Doja Cat is taking it back to Rydell High School! The 25-year-old singer channels her inner Sandy Olson as she covers "You're The One I Want" from 1978's Grease in the new commercial for Pepsi's new Soda Shop release.
Doja — who is set to host the MTV VMAs this Sunday — opened up about the experience of embodying the beloved film character in a new interview with People.
"It was very interesting. I saw it in my mind while we were in glam. We were getting the hair, and makeup and the outfits", she said. "When I saw the actual rough cut of everything, it was exactly how my mind envisioned it, and I am so, so happy about how it came out."
The songstress also said that she tries to bring some of Sandy's confidence into other aspects of her life, like her relationship — though it doesn't always work out.
"I absolutely applied that energy to my relationships, maybe it's not the greatest idea", she explained with a laugh. "I don't know if it was healthy or not, but I felt that it was okay to say, 'Hey, punk, I don't care about you' when it comes to relationships and a guy wants to play with your heart."
"She's iconic", added Doja. "Sandy is a bad bitch and we know it."
During the interview, the hitmaker also shared her excitement about hosting and performing on the VMAs — where she's also up for five categories, including video of the year for "Kiss Me More", her collab with SZA.
"I am terrified. I don't know what I am going to do. I don't know what I'm going to say, but I know it's going to be interesting, and I'm excited. I might wear a chair on my head for a hat for that", she said. "That's the fun part — we don't know what's going to happen, and we're constantly going in blind, but that's all right because we're going to make the best of it."
