Rita Ora apologizes for 'tone deaf' portrayal of same-sex relationships

RITA Ora has apologised today for "hurting" fans with her new song Girls after she was accused of exploiting bisexuality to sell records. She added that the song represented her truth and an honest moment from her past. "I personally myself had experiences with other women, shit with a lot of women!" "Listen to "GIRLS" by Rita Ora ft me @BebeRexha @charli_xcx.We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song", wrote Cardi. I'm ever thankful to my fans for teaching me to love myself to matter what.

If anything proves that the pop music mainstream still has quite a ways to go before it has achieved true acceptance of the LGBTQ community, it's the fact that both of these artists - who, again, are members of the LGBTQ community themselves - still have to worry about facing career repercussions for speaking up. Many have remarked that the song preys on bisexual stereotypes, with singer Hayley Kiyoko calling the song's message "tone-deaf."

Pop artist Hayley Kiyoko shared a note on Twitter that said "Girls" does "more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community". If Perry could she would not have written the song in the same way.

The Los Angeles native added that she was 'overwhelmed with thoughts, ' and felt 'a song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalizing the idea of women loving women'. The song's lyrics - "Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls" - have come under heavy scrutiny from fans, critics, and other artists.

Cardi, who previously issued apologies for offensive terminology she once freely wielded and also stood up for fiancé Offset when he experienced a backlash of his own, tweeted out her response this morning.

"I [thought] the song was a good song and i remember my experience". & have met them all and respect them.

Now Ora has responded to the criticism, apologising for the song, revealing her female romances and aligning herself with "other LGBTQ+ people".
