Bebe Rexha wants Kehlani and Hayley Kiyoko to know that she isn’t impressed with their criticism of ‘Girls’, the jam she built with Rita Ora, Cardi B and Charli XCX.
Fans of the singer will know that she was criticised for language she and her collaborators used in the track to describe lesbian sex by Kehlani and Kiyoko and watched Rita and Cardi issue apologies for their actions.
Bebe, however, isn’t sorry.
What she had to say about their critique?
A great deal…
She said this in an interview with ‘The Sun’s Dan Wooton.
The question of whether #Girls was true to us was completely dismissed. People automatically went for the negative instead of saying: ‘Well maybe these girls do kiss girls, maybe Bebe is bi.’ You don’t know about my sexual orientation, so I felt disrespected.
I’ve kissed girls. And I don’t do it because it’s fun or whatever. Do you have to be fully lesbian to put out a song about kissing girls? What if you’re bi.
Kehlani is yet to respond.
