Rita Ora Apologizes After "Girls" Backlash

Rita Ora Apologizes After

"Girls", a song with Charli XCX, Carli B and Bebe Rexha which Ora has said is "definitely" a bisexual anthem, was torn apart by Kehlani and Hayley Kiyoko, who called it "downright tone-deaf". Kiyoko expressed her dislike of the song's chorus, which revolves around drinking wine and wanting to kiss girls. Rather than attacking Ora or any of the other singers involved, Kehlani and Hayley pointed out where the song went wrong and how it could be better, while Ora apologized for messing up without trying to deflect blame - while she did over-explain a bit, she did so in an effort to demonstrate her understanding of how she messed up and would try to do so in the future. "I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone", she wrote.

She said the track came after her own relationships with women, and that it was never her intention to exploit the LGBTQ+ community by co-opting queer themes for the song.

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

Karnavian said the father drove a bomb-laden auto into the city's Pentecostal church. Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim-majority country.

Rita Ora has issued an apology to anyone who may have been offended by her new track "Girls", which references bisexuality. "I ain't one-sided, I'm open-minded / I'm fifty-fifty and I'm never gonna hide it" Ora sings in the tune's opening verse. "I don't need to drink wine to kiss girls; I've loved women my entire life". "I have strived to be a contributor to the LGBTQ+ community throughout my entire career and always will be", she finished.

She said: "The values of Together #WePlayStrong centre not only around football but female empowerment and equality too, so I was 100% behind this campaign when I was approached to partner with UEFA".

The Los Angeles native added that she was 'overwhelmed with thoughts, ' and felt 'a song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalizing the idea of women loving women'.
