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

Cardi B Defends Rita Ora's

Days after making her Twitter private, Cardi B is back on the social media platform to publicly weigh in on her now-controversial collaboration "Girls" with Rita Ora, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha.

'Girls was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life'.

"I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of [women]!" "I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone", she wrote.

Much to fans surprise, Rob showed his support by retweeting the message with six praise hands emoji's.

Among those voicing their upset over the lyrics was singer Hayley Kiyoko, who identifies as gay and labelled the song "harmful".

Twitter to Start Hiding Bad Tweets
These signals will now be considered in how we organize and present content in communal areas like conversation and search. In the blog post, Twitter said: "This technology and our team will learn over time and will make mistakes".

Ora stated that her inspiration for the song was I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry, but even she admitted to Glamour in February that she would "probably make an edit" of the song.

"I [thought] the song was a good song and i remember my experience".

'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'. She's gotten this message across through songs like "Girls Like Girls" and "Sleepover" - and especially through their accompanying videos. The song's lyrics - "Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls" - have come under heavy scrutiny from fans, critics, and other artists. "I steal your bitch, have her down with the scissor / Tonight, I don't want a dog, I want a kitten / I might French a girl from Great Britain". A line from Cardi B reads: "I could be your lipstick just for one night".

Ora responded to the criticism by apologizing for the way she expressed herself, saying on Twitter that the song was based on her personal journey.

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