Rita Ora responds to "Girls" criticism on Twitter

Rita Ora Comes Out, Apologizes to Those 'Hurt' By 'Girls'

The new song, which also features vocals from Charli XCX, Bebe Rexha and Cardi B, is marketed as a "bisexual anthem", and has been compared to Katy Perry's I Kissed A Girl.

'I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone. "I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life..."

The singer-and-actress has teamed up with the European football governing body, who are sponsoring her "The Girls Tour", for their Together #WePlayStrong campaign in a bid to change the image of women's football, something which the "Your Song" hitmaker says is a "privilege" to be part of.

Iran's leader ominously warned his country might "start enriching uranium more than before". US allies in Europe had tried to keep him in and lamented his move to abandon it.

Some of the lyrics in the song include, "Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls/Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls". She went on to explain that she "hope (s) 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". I'm ever thankful to my fans for teaching me to love myself no matter what. A song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalising the idea of women loving women.

However, the track has been met with criticism from artists from the LGBTQ community, with Hayley Kiyoko branding the song as "just downright tone-deaf". However, that hype was undercut by the public reaction to some of the song's lyrics.

Kehlani tweeted her thoughts on the song, referring to "awkward slurs" in the song.

Nanny sentenced to life in prison without parole
A NY jury found her guilty last month on two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder. Yoselyn Ortega is facing life in prison for the 2012 murders of 6-year-old Lucia Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim.

Ora also added that she has "strived to be a contributor to the LGBTQ+ community throughout my entire career and always will be".

Ora has now taken to Twitter to apologise, and give her side of the story.

"If people look at it like that, it's very narrow-minded, and I don't think that's what this record is", she told People, when asked if she considers herself bisexual or fluid.

"We found different ways to win each game and different people stepping up at different times to make it a complete team effort". Sydney Smith entered the game out of the pen in the third as she collected the win tossing 3.2 innings of work.

As you'll remember from our reporting last week, LGBT performers like Hayley Kiyoko had been very critical of Ora's new single, even after Rita got real about her own bisexuality and how it related to the track.
