Cardi B Addresses Controversy Over Rita Ora Collaboration 'Girls'

16 May 2018

Cardi B has returned to Twitter to defend her recent "Girls" collaboration with Rita Ora, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha. "I though the song was a good song and i remember my experience", she wrote. In short, it's a bop. Last Friday, singer Hayley Kiyoko, who is openly gay, took to social media to call the tune "tone-deaf" and "dangerous".

Katie Gavin, from the pop band Muna, echoed Kehlani's thoughts, saying in a lengthy tweet, "a young confused bisexual kissing girls at slumber parties and getting shamed by the other girls for seeming like i was enjoying it too much. i hear those girls in this song. i hear the familiar chorus that women's sexuality is something to be looked at instead of authentically felt".

Cardi B has been in hot water with the LGBTQ community before. Following the outrage, Rita Ora issued an apology for the mistake.

She then stated, "This caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with". She also pointed to Cardi B's success as a low point of female artistry, marking Beyonce's Lemonade as a peak.

Girls angered a whole heap of people, with the lyrics being labeled 'harmful" and "not progressive' by Kehlani, but Cardi for one doesn't see the problem.

She added, "I personally myself had experiences with other woman, with a lot of woman!"

Rita's backlash comes after the singer touched on her romantic experiences with men and women. Girls was written to represent a truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life. I apologise for that. "I learned and i stopped using it", Cardi continued.

Arteta Emerges Favourite To Replace Wenger At Arsenal
The Gunners haven't reached the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010 to highlight their regression under Wenger. And the 68-year-old was overcome with emotion before and after Arsenal's last game of the Premier League campaign.

Writing on her Twitter page on Tuesday (15 May), she wrote: "We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song".

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.
