16 May 2018, 04:17 | Myron Mathis
British singer Rita Ora has apologized after her latest single "Girls" featuring Cari B, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha, was criticized for its "tone-deaf" presentation of same-sex relationships, reports SPIN. The song's lyrics - "Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls" - have come under heavy scrutiny from fans, critics, and other artists. "Listen to "GIRLS" by Rita Ora ft me @BebeRexha @charli_xcx.We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song", wrote Cardi.
"I personally myself had experiences with other women, shit with a lot of women!"
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 video for the song has already been shot with a planned release sometime in the near future.
"'Girls' was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life", she wrote.
Ora added, "I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone".
While many people saw that this was Rita's way of coming out as bisexual herself, other identifying LGBTQ+ musicians saw the song as harmful to the community and reminded them of the days when they hadn't come out yet and were afraid to.
'I'm ever thankful to my fans for teaching me to love myself no matter what. I apologise for that. 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.
Kiyoko released a statement claiming that the song "does more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community" while Kehlani hit out at its "harmful lyrics".
"Not everybody knows the correct "terms" to use".
Rita's backlash comes after the singer touched on her romantic experiences with men and women.
