Rita Ora Apologises For ‘Girls’ Lesbian Drama

Published: Monday 14th May 2018 by David

Rita Ora has issued an apology for language used in her new single ‘Girls’ following criticism sent her way by her label mate Kehlani.

Rita’s words below…

 I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone. I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone.Looking forward, I hope that continuing to express myself through my art will empower my fans to feel as proud of themselves as I’m learning to feel about who I am. I’m ever thankful to my fans for teaching me to love myself no matter what. I have strived to be a contributor to the LGBTQ+ community throughout my entire career and always will be.


Her sincere apology was prompted by Kehlani’s criticism of the jam’s lyrics on social media hours after its unveiling.



What do you make of Ora’s words?

    Why tf did she apologize?! There’s NOTHING wrong with this song!
    Just a bunch of snowflakes complaining about every little thing like they know how. Bunch of cry babies. It’s a pop song for crying out loud, geez 🙄

    • I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish May 14, 2018

      pop songs making fun of gay people is not funny,….. they darkened all of their skin made their lips bigger, and gave them hip hop fashion like a black girl

      • Ughhh May 14, 2018

        @ihate as a bisexual woman myself, y’all are trippin. Find a bigger pedal tool; you’re reaching way too hard

    People are way too sensitive these days and Kehlani is dead wrong for starting this drama.

    Rit a is lame. Whatever happened to freedom of speach? Everything does not have to kiss up to LGBTQ agendas. I doubt the song is anti-LGBTQ so what exactly is the problem?

    Don’t get it when Katy kissed a girl and liked it was more bold lyrics

    • Teflon Boy May 14, 2018

      That was a different time.., it’s tone deaf in 2018 for straight girls to appropriate lipstick lesbianism to sell music. Pop music is about capturing the zeitgeist of the moment, Rita and co. are getting mild flack cos it’s a dated concept.

        It’s freedom of speach. Songs like Katy and this one are okay in my book. I like songs that are sexual lyrics provocative and these two are lame compared to what I listen to when I am in a ratchet mood. People are just looking to be offended over nothing these days.

        I hear that, I’m the same tbh. This isn’t bold and envelope pushing though, it’s a bunch of hairbrush pop singers using lipstick lesbianism to be edgy when in 2018 it’s as edgy as a hob knob biscuit lol

    This song is cancelled and so is Cardi

  6. Caleb May 14, 2018

    So is she not going to promote the song? I mean why apologize now once the song is going to chart?

  7. Darius C May 15, 2018

    Song already off i tunes top 30 lol

    There was no need to issue an apology because the lyrics were not offensive or harmful. Ppl need to pick and choose their battles and stop being so sensitive about every damn thing. Artist can’t even make a song without receiving backlash for innocent I lyrics.
