Rita Ora responds to criticism of 'tone-deaf' 'Girls'

Kehlani insisted she has "love and respect" for each of the artists but maintained that Girls contains "harmful lyrics", while Katie Gavin from MUNA said: "I remember being a young confused bisexual kissing girls at slumber parties and getting shamed by other girls for seeming like I was enjoying it too much".

Then there's Cardi B's verse, where she raps about how she "could be your lipstick for one night" and that her name "tastes good just rolling off your tongue".

She had previously said the song was inspired in part by Katy Perry's similarly-minded I Kissed a Girl, though Perry herself recently admitted that some lyrics in the song were outdated, saying: "It has a couple of stereotypes in it". "Looking forward, I hope that continuing to express myself through my art will empower my fans to feel as proud of themselves as I'm learning to feel about who I am".

Singers Kehlani and Hayley Kiyoko both expressed issues with the song. "I don't need to drink wine to kiss girls; I've loved women my entire life".

Following her statement, a number of people have come to her defence.

"Bisexuality isn't selective. It doesn't attach itself only to "cool" girls with a ideal understanding of the intricacies of sexual politics", podcast host Anna Turner, who is bisexual, wrote on Twitter.

You can even be bisexual if you've only ever kissed a member of the same sex while you were drunk. That doesn't invalidate other queer women's more nuanced experiences or artwork.
