On Tuesday, Cardi B responded to the backlash over Rita Ora's song "Girls", which features Cardi, Charli XCX, and Bebe Rexha.

The general public as well as artists such as including Kehlani, Hayley Kiyoko, and MUNA have made open criticism of the song's bold and controversial lyrics which includes lines regarding "scissoring", getting drunk on "wine red", and kissing girls. She explained that she was ignorant at the time and after gaining knowledge about these terms, she stopped using them.

As one of the more controversial figures in music now, Cardi offered her viewpoints of "Girls" on Twitter by tweeting "We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song".

'I personally myself had experiences with other woman, shiieeett with a lot of woman!

Ever the transparent figure, Cardi shared some of her own personal anecdotes and sharing that she has had her own experiences with women.

Read her full comments below.

"I know i have use words before that i wasn't aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community", she wrote.




The video for the song has already been shot with a planned release sometime in the near future.

The "Bodak Yellow" singer took the moment to also apologize for her past use of gay slurs, loosely referencing a controversy a year ago when her fiancé Offset used the phrase "I can not vibe with queers" in a freestyle verse and she defended him. 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.

The song "does more harm than good for the LGBTQ community", singer Hayley Kiyoko said on twitter.

"I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song hurt anyone".

Singer Kehlani, who identifies as "queer," took to Twitter on Friday saying that the song, that Ora referred to as "a celebration of love" to the Metro UK - contains "harmful lyrics".

The "Bickenhead" artist also admitted that she too has had several romantic and sexual experiences with women. & have met them all and respect them. You can see her tweets below.
