RITA Ora has apologised today for "hurting" fans with her new song Girls after she was accused of exploiting bisexuality to sell records.

"Girls", she wrote, is "an accurate account of a very real and honest experience".

She added, "I personally myself had experiences with other woman, with a lot of woman!"

The pair dated for a couple of months before splitting back in 2012, and at the time Rob claimed that Rita "cheated on me with almost 20 dudes while we were together".

I have strived to be a contributor to the LGBT+ community throughout my entire career and always will be.

She continued to explain that in the past, her lack of awareness has caused her to use terms considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community. In January, she defended fiancé Offset's offensive "I can not vibe with queers" lyric, which prompted the 25-year-old to ask that the community "educate people".

Iman finally shared a solo snap of her wearing a robe which partially covered her baby bump. Iman and Shepard married in March after becoming engaged just four months earlier.

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".

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

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

Cardi also addressed backlash she's previously received for using the term "dyke" in an offensive way. 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.

Among those voicing their upset over the lyrics was singer Hayley Kiyoko, who identifies as gay and labelled the song "harmful". The song was released by Perry in 2008 and since then the pop star has said her lyrics were outdated with "a couple of stereotypes".
