Cardi B Apologizes For 'Girls' And States She Had No 'Bad Intentions'

Cardi B visits Music Choice at Music Choice

And I was like, "Well, yeah, it is, because that's my life!"

"Why can't I sing about girls a few times?" she continued. Literally, they go, "That's obscene".

"Listen to "GIRLS" by Rita Ora ft me @BebeRexha @charli_xcx".

The track also features Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX, and features lyrics like: "I'm 50/50, and I'm never gonna hide it" and "Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls". In the wake of backlash from Hayley Kiyoko, Kehlani, and others, Ora responded to the criticism on Monday by sharing that she's had relationships with both men and women. "I feel I have a responsibility to protect that whenever possible".

R&B Singer Kehlani who identifies as queer said: "there were many awkward slurs, quotes ... just think certain quotes weren't progressive". The latter certainly implies the same idea of girl-on-girl hookups as a performance for male attention that was present in Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl".

During an interview with People, Rita - who has been dating songwriter Andrew Watt for over a year - was asked about whether the song is linked to her own sexuality. I'm not saying I'm 70/30. I have strived to be a contributor to the LGBTQ+ community throughout my entire career and always will be'. This led to a messy internet fight between the two that ended in Cardi disabling her Instagram and making her Twitter private.

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

"I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of woman!" she wrote on Twitter, adding that she thought "the song was a good song and i remember my experience". Now, Cardi is also addressing the song's controversial bi-curious lyrics. "I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone", she wrote.
