After dropping her new single "Girls" with Bebe Rexha, Charli XCX and Cardi B, Rita Ora has faced some backlash from her fans and the public in general. Artists including Hayley Kiyoko and Kehlani called Ora out for including lyrics like "Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls/ Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls", which they said contributed to continued stereotypes about same-sex female love simply being a phase.

The singer, who is now touring the United Kingdom, took to Instagram on Monday to express her regret over unintentionally hurting members of the LGBTQ community, confessing: 'I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone'. The Bardi Gang leader also served as an advocate for those who are not familiar with the proper terminology to properly refer to the LGBT community, while doubling down on not having negative intentions.

Girls angered a whole heap of people, with the lyrics being labeled 'harmful" and "not progressive' by Kehlani, but Cardi for one doesn't see the problem. "I know I have used words before that I wasn't aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community", she wrote on Twitter. "I apologize for that.Not everybody knows the correct 'terms 'to use". I grew up in a small city where people always said "d*ke" so I thought it was an okay thing to say but when I moved away I quickly learned it was offensive. I though the song was a good song and i remember my experience, '.
