Cardi B Speaks On 'Girls' Single After Criticism Spills Online

Cardi B has addressed the controversy that has arisen in the wake of her recent Rita Ora collaboration, "Girls". Cardi wrote. "I thought the song was a good song and I remember my experience". "I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of woman [sic]", she wrote.

'I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone.

The pair dated for a couple of months before splitting back in 2012, and at the time Rob claimed that Rita "cheated on me with almost 20 dudes while we were together". A song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalising the idea of women loving women... "Girls", which also features pop singers Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX, was intended as a celebration of sexual freedom but instead became the focal point of a discussion about harmful stereotyping and marginalization after a few queer artists and fans called out some of the song's lyrics.

One of the featured artists on the track, hip-hop sensation Cardi B, still wants her fans to go and listen to the song.

She took to Instagram to apologise to her legions of fans after she received criticism from the LGBT community over her controversial new single, Girls. She's gotten this message across through songs like "Girls Like Girls" and "Sleepover" - and especially through their accompanying videos.




"We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song", Cardi said. She was then asked who was better at giving oral sex, men or women and said that it depends.

More instructive, though, is the fact that Kehlani felt the need to offer an extensive disclaimer about how she had no personal problems with any of the singers on the song. I'm not saying I'm 70/30.

I have strived to be a contributor to the LGBT+ community throughout my entire career and always will be. I'm not hiding what I am, who I am, if I wanna do this, if I wanna do that.

Cardi concluded with an apology for any time she may have used offensive language toward the LGBTQ+ community.
