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.
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.
