Rita Ora Talks About The ‘Girls’ Controversy For The First Time

 Rita Ora has received a lot of backlash for her latest song 'Girls', which features Cardi B and Charli XCX.

The British singer was forced to apologise on Twitter after lyrics that talked about kissing girls offended the LGBTI+ community because they made kissing girls seem like a phase.

She apologised to fans explaining that the lyrics came from her own experience and that she never meant to offend anyone with the song.


"Girls was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life.

"I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey."

Now, the singer has spoken with Heidi, Xavier and Ryan, who are currently in London for the Royal wedding, about the controversy and says that if she thought about everyone she might offend before writing a song, it may not turn out to be a truthful song.

"As a musician, the great thing about being a songwriter and an artist, is that you don't really have any rules and your fans are going to love you regardless.

"You have to be real and true to who you are."
