Cardi B Defends Rita Ora's "Girls" Amid Backlash

Rita Ora Cardi B Responds To The Backlash Against Her Rita Ora Collaboration, 'Girls'
Freda Brock | 16 May, 2018, 04:16

The chorus goes "Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls, girls girls / red wine I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls". I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone. On the surface, "Girls" is a saucy, bubble-gum, feel-good pop song with a soaring hook, a satisfyingly crunchy rap feature from Cardi ("I'm so sexy I seduce myself") and smooth-as-butter vocal additions from Charli and Bebe. Now, Rita Ora has issued an apology to the LGBTQ community that attempts to clarify what the song meant in relation to her "personal journey".

The video for the song has already been shot with a planned release sometime in the near future.

"'Girls' was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life", Ora wrote. Looking forward, I hope that continuing to express myself through my art will empower my fans to feel as proud of themselves as I'm learning to feel about who I am'. Last Friday, singer Hayley Kiyoko, who is openly gay, took to social media to call the tune "tone-deaf" and "dangerous". "I would never cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone".

"Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women's culture was really reaching an all-time high", she said. We've finally got another fiery response from Azealia after Cardi called her out for being a hypocrite.

Calling out: Distraction hitmaker Kehlani also revealed her thoughts on the song, stating, 'there. were. harmful. lyrics. period'.

The "Bodak Yellow" singer took the moment to also apologize for her past use of gay slurs, loosely referencing a controversy previous year when her fiancé Offset used the phrase "I can not vibe with queers" in a freestyle verse and she defended him.

Rita's backlash comes after the singer touched on her romantic experiences with men and women. "I learned and i stopped using it". You can see her tweets below. We all learn and grow boo that's life " "Exactly me too", Cardi captioned the tweet, saying that she heard friends use the term so she thought it was OK.
