Cardi B has followed pal Rita Ora’s lead by apologizing for the bisexual backlash following the release of their new song “Girls.”



Rita tapped Cardi B, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha for her bisexual anthem “Girls”, which she hoped would solidify her status as a LGBT ally.

But the trend of heterosexual artists pretending to be gay or bisexual is insulting to those of us in the LGBT community.

Rita, who claims to be bisexual, came under fire for the song’s “tone-deaf” lyrics, which sex rights activists blasted as “dangerous” and “belittling”.

Cardi B, Rita Ora

The 27-year-old singer, pictured right with Cardi, was quick to apologize for lyrics like “Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls/Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls girls.”

She said she had no idea the lyrics would upset others.

And on Tuesday, rapper Cardi B added her apologies via Twitter.com, stopping short of say she regrets signing up for the track.

“Listen to GIRLS by Rita Ora ft (featuring) me @BebeRexha @charli_xcx,” she tweeted. “We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song.”

Cardi added: “I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of woman! I though the song was a good song and i remember my experience.”

But 27-year-old singer Hayley Kiyoko, who is openly gay, said the pop song was insulting to the LGBT community.

“It’s important for us artists to use our platforms to move the cultural needle forward, not backwards,” wrote the Los Angeles native, who compared “Girls” to Katy Perry’s 2009 hit “I Kissed a Girl,” which is equally as offensive.

“To be clear, I fully support other artists who freely express themselves and applaud male and female artists who are opening up more about their sexual identities,” said Kiyoko.

“But every so often there come certain songs with messaging that is just downright tone-deaf, which does more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community.”

    Ugh. Not these h*es again.

    Same narrative. Using popular artists to push an agenda. They know people worship these retards to no end and will follow any and everything they do. No wonder my cousin (whose a teacher) said she sees young 12 and 13 year old girls kissing each other in the bathrooms, on buses in front of other boys for attention. SMH These retards are making it cool to be bisexual/gay when some of these kids don’t even know themselves yet to know what they even like! They’re being told what to like!

  • king shun

    so is it offensive when they rappers talking about killing black folks in they house and selling poison to other blacks and running trains on black girls also?

  • Roxie Moxie

    Of course it is. But that isn’t what the post is about this time. You kinda sound like the white people when Black Lives Matter came to fruition…”well, white lives matter too”.

    Speaking on one specific topic doesn’t negate or make something else less important or insignificant.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    i mean… i was unable to find my fuchs for this song and these people. black folks still getting arrested, without cause, in starbucks. cops still getting called on us at cook-outs and while departing airbnb’s… leader of the free world still an unqualified idiot.

    ‘morning, roses.

  • king shun

    well it shows the hypocrisy of the whole situation…like that black lives matter hell black and white cops shooting down unarmed black and white folks too instead of that being a movement focused against the police it turned into some thing focused on white police and white people in general

  • Roxie Moxie

    Facts!! And morning!

  • XoXo

    Nonsense!

  • CookieMobster

    This shit is so dumb. I say do YOU cuz yourey damned if you do damned if you don’t these days.

  • Dowoop

    And everybody is offended by everything.

  • Chuck

    These gays get on my last nerves. They need an island to themselves. They are the most sensitive bitches, ever! It’s a song, people. Cardi and Rita Ora have drank from the lady’s pool, and they are singing about “their” experience, so why is anyone insulted. Jeez

  • Dowoop

    I haven’t heard the song but if they are truly upset by what Sandra quoted above these people are just getting on my nerves. Why did they even apologize?

  • SpillyNillie

    Cry me a river…NEXT!

  • Kimberly

    Chile these gay mfers get on my damn nerves complain about anything I blame the government for giving them rights that’s the one law I wish Obama didn’t sign

  • free

    “i personally myself”

  • Rayne

    Yeen gotta ‘pologize. I wasn’t listening no way.??

  • Ni Ni

    Meh, i dont understand the outrage with the other gays. Once you start apologizing, it’s a never-ending cycle. Everybody is offended by something.

  • MyaCompton

    I wish her a__ go sit down somewhere snd stay off social media..YOUR PREGNANT go somewhere and enjoy it….thats what u begged that roach for and u got it!! Offset clearly aint givin her no attention ?…

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    then complain that someone always talking bout her????? She said she wanted to have her baby in peace which is why she kept it a secret but the lie detector test determined that was a lie! She tried to keep it a secret so she could have a big reveal on a show which she did! Because ever since she has confirmed her pregnancy she has done EVERYTHING BUT have her baby and pregnancy in peace.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Her reign in the top was short like leprechaun.

  • Gloria

    I don’t get how the song is offensive?? it’s girls talking about being intimate with other girls, right? Shouldn’t the LGBTQ community be happy about that?

  • bella28498 .

    Can’t be offended if you don’t listen….never heard the song idc next post

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    ONLY thing is their plan is bark firing big time no one is going for the pop my pucci throw my asss in a circle gang bang im gay too but I chase nothing but dack should mf and dance anymore ppl are on some creating wealth and getting education stuff now and they seeing it that’s why soon they will abandon Cardi or maybe try and change her image. Right now graduating college and opening businesses is the cool thing to do ain’t nobody trying to be on no bs pill popping high and joining gangs type mess

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Ok!! Hello somebody!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I guess the idea is that they are supposedly “trivializing” the gay experience, or profiteering of the gay/bisexual thing just as a gimmick.
    But some of these gaynazis are constantly looking for something to complain about, so I just tune them out after a while.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    So saying they want to kiss girls is harmful because they’re not gay? Some people can be so sensitive.

  • Roxie Moxie

    That comment in and of itself shows the level of (or lack of) education. The two can be used interchangeably in some contexts but in other contexts they mean different things. This is what paying attention (or attending) some kinda school will help you understand. lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don’t see what all the hoopla is about. Cardi done kissed girls and liked it. Rita says she kissed girls and liked it so what’s the problem. I haven’t heard the song but damn!! It doesn’t seem like they meant to be offensive. The only reason they are apologizing is because they don’t want to mess up their money…

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Cardi needs to be trying to get her ass enrolled in a neighborhood GED class. She is so breathtakingly ignorant. I just don’t know if she is aware of it or she just really doesn’t care.

    Some of her songs are cute though, and she does kinda grow on you after awhile. She’s no great rapper of course, but she’s better off focusing on music rather than social commentary because I think anything beyond describing the colors on a cereal box might be an intellectual challenge for her.

    I totally see the chemistry between her and Offset’s ugly ass. I feel sorry for that baby though: imagine having those two as parents!

  • Roxie Moxie

    “breathtakingly ignorant”

    The real gay girls said FOH with that faking ish. If you don’t eat cat, don’t pretend to just to sell your raggedy song. You know you’re losing when the gays don’t even want to claim your gay song lol

  • Strip Club Veteran

    If they can make all the women gay, us heterosexual men will have a way to reproduce. If they can flip all the young guys to being gay, same difference. The hunt is on and we’re the prey.

  • SweetTEE

    Glad we all figuring this out.

  • BallsJustFloppinRound

    Rita ora put it out that this song was seeming to be 10x more deep than it was supposed to be. Find you a island to be mad at gays on bitch, this her whole fault!

  • A.Murray

    As a member of the LBGT community. I think they are definitely over doing it.

    Pls understand that all gays are NOT alike, even though I didn’t like the song (I’m more of trap music type of girl). I didn’t feel offended at all.

  • Mec-One

    Lucky

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yes!!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I’m not offended either. But then again, I’m from a different generation and I don’t offend easily. It seems like it’s a lot of (not all) the newer generations that get up in arms about anything anyone says nowadays.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    SMH!! Just use your talent, quit tryna make fetch happen. The problem is when talent is absent they insert gimmicks.

  • Yui

    I was getting ready to ask did you feel offended? I wonder who are these people who are speaking for an entire community. To me there seems to be bigger issues at stake than a goofy sounding song.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    OK.
    What was wrong with the message?

  • tia

    This particular community act like a bunch of rich gangsta’s and thugs. They seem to operate in a mafia/gang like style. They can say and do what they want; offend whomever they like. However, don’t flip the script on them.

    It’s getting tired…

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond
  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Cardi B is having a bad year. Her man cheating on her while pregnant (but she knows), AB came for her, she’s accused of stealing songs, she fired her manager, now he’s suing her, she battling everyone on twitter, gang members were coming for her head, her and Nicki Minaj, now this song is causing her to apologize…. and this is just in the last 5 months. I hope things start to turn around for her or we are witnessing her downward spiral happen right before our eyes.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    If you find out who all they are (gays that get easily offended), please let us know. Conversations need to be had with them. I def would like to let them know they do NOT speak for me, do not get offended for ALL LGBTQ (and whatever other letters I am missing..) community. They need to speak for themselves!

  • C Mack

    Definitely doing too much. Let the women “sing” and “rap” about their experiences. Tolerance goes both ways and the way LGBT figures in the media act is annoying

  • C Mack

    This is affecting Rita more than Cardi. Cardi’s a featured artist, and even if this did hurt her, she could sleep well knowing that she enjoyed wayyy more success worldwide than Rita will likely ever enjoy

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Meh. Will never listen to the song so I don’t care. Stop apologizing!!!!!!!!

  • C Mack

    The same way you just analyzed her life negatively, she could have a totally different outlook. She is bringing life into the world, has a successful debut album, pretty much made Nicki look like the “bad guy” in their “beef” without saying anything, and became a household name. I’d say she’s had a decent year?????

  • C Mack

    Nail on the head. I’m part of the community and I see your point

  • Ryan

    Can we fast forward six months to when y’all stop trying to force this basic broad down our throats? For real

  • Miss Thang

    “but the lie detector test determined that was a lie!” lmaoo

  • Shira Harding-James

    I don’t understand what was offensive about it?

  • tia

    Thank you. Not trying to offend anyone at all :)

  • blue skies

    lmbo

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Oh I agree with you on that Rita tried to recruit for help I wonder why Cardi ppl didn’t tell her not to …. oh never mind she paid her most likely for the feature so ?????

  • Sofiyah Balthazar

    I personally myself ????
    Moron

  • Haley C

    This is so stupid, this new age social media sh!t makes people offended by everything, and I was born in ‘92, stop trying to force this gay agenda on us!!

  • Haley C

    Seriously, why do people have to walk on eggshells regarding what they say about the LGBTQXYZ community.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    No worries. The only way your gonna hear this song is if you specifically look it up on YouTube. It’s definitely not a hit, at best it’s an album filler

  • Logan Roberts

    Don’t worry I don’t listen to Cardi or Rita ?

  • dontgetblocked

    I’m more confused than Bruce Jenner. What’s offensive. What if I said I wanted to kiss boys. Is that offensive?

  • Sandyb1117

    People are apologizing for things they really want to say. Only because their PR people are forcing them too. She said sorry for the black women and cockroach comment and the fiance apologize for saying he don’t like gay people. They keep making the same comments. It’s just being deleted after they post it.

  • Applebum

    This is the much attention Rita Hoera have gotten in years. She knew what she was doing.

  • Kimberly

    Exactly but they don’t walk on eggshells about what they say about black ppl

  • Malcom Flex

    She DEMONIC

  • Layah Jhene

    The LGBTQ community always bitchin’. Go sit y’all confused asses down somewhere.

  • T3

    Yes! I hear my middle school students claiming to be bi all the time and it IRKS me! Simply because like you said, they don’t even know themselves. I hate it because they’re just a bunch of followers. Shat is sickening!

  • Trace da Ace

    I mean…it is coming to the point where you have to watch what you say or do in regards to ANYTHING….shit…..I can’t with this song or this fucking post….folks gonna get mad over the dumbest shit….
