We have the latest installment in the Rita Ora backlash.
We reported to you earlier that singer Rita Ora offended lesbians and bisexual people with her song “Girls” featuring Cardi B, Bebe Rexha, and Charli XCX. Many complained that the song was meant to fetishize lesbianism and bisexuality for straight men.
In response to that backlash, Rita Ora both apologized and reiterated that the song was her honestly talking about her interest in dating not only men but women too.
“Girls was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life. I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey.”
Now, rapper Cardi B is backing up Rita Ora by saying that no one meant to insult LGBTQ people and that she too has had several same-sex romances and experiences.
Cardi’s lyrics spoke on the desire for “a kitten” and not “a dog,” and how she wanted to “French a girl from Great Britain.”
“Now I could be your lipstick, just for one night
Girls just wanna have fun and have their funds right […]
Tonight, I don’t want a dog, I want a kitten
I might French a girl from Great Britain”
Last year, Cardi B announced that she was engaged to rapper Offset. That said, marrying a man does not wipe away someone’s bisexuality.
