Every now and then celebrity interviews resurface that are just so iconic, I wonder how I forgot about them. Enter Doja Cat, who upon being asked about her 30 animated crushes, decides to name… Hopper. As in the evil capitalist grasshopper from Pixar’s A Bugs Life. It’s certainly a choice.
Obviously she said yes, because who doesn’t, before saying she has like, 30 of them. Which is also totally fine and normal, since I am endlessly crushing on the dad in Raya and The Last Dragon. Disney did *not* have to go that hard.
Doja then reveals one of the 30 characters she is crushing on, and you’d think she’d name some popular anime character, perhaps. I’ll be honest, I don’t really know any, but other typical answers regarding hot animated characters are (adult) Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon, or Kovu from Lion King. Yes, he’s a lion and yes, everyone is obsessed with him.
But no. Instead, Doja said she has a crush on… Hopper. From A Bug’s Life. As in, this guy:
Yes, Kevin Spacey as a crusty ass bug who exploits the working class is Doja Cat’s animated crush.
And this was the first character she thought of, out of her 30 options. I simply cannot.

She then goes on to say “he does things to me” and girl, the only thing Hopper should be making you feel is a radical urge for class war. (For those of you watching from home, A Bug’s Life is literally about ants seizing the means of production from their capitalist overlords, the grasshoppers).
I mean, at least this wack ass choice is on brand for Doja, if nothing else.
