Rita Ora responds to criticism of 'tone-deaf' 'Girls'

UEFA and Rita Ora pair up to support #WePlayStrong

Ora has now taken to Twitter to apologise, and give her side of the story.

Rita, who has teamed up with fellow Brit Charli XCX and U.S. stars Bebe Rexha and Cardi B on the track, sings lyrics such as "I'm 50/50 and I'm never gonna hide it".

"I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey", she adds.

Rita goes on to apologize if her song lyrics hurt anyone, and that she strives to continue to express herself through her art, so that her fans can find inspiration from her. "I'm ever thankful to my fans for teaching me to love myself no matter what", she continued. Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX's verse starts with "You know I tamed it, and then I named it/I put the lion in the cage and then I laid with her", and, as blatantly objectifying as that sounds, some queer sexual experiences are entirely consensual power fantasies rooted in objectification. Nearly immediaitely after the song released, musician Hayley Kiyoko called it "downright tone-deaf" and claimed that it did "more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community".

Hayley Kiyoko criticized the song, saying that she doesn't "need to drink wine to kiss girls".

Following its May 11th release, some listeners called the tune - which contains lyrics like "I ain't one-sided, I'm open-minded" and "Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls" - as a "bisexual bop". "This type of message is unsafe because it completely belittles and invalidates the very pure feelings of an entire community".

She added: 'It's important for us artists to use our platforms to move the cultural needle forward, not backwards'. & have met them all and respect them. there. were. harmful. lyrics. period'.

"I'm not hiding what I am, who I am, if I wanna do this, if I wanna do that", Ora told People.
