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". "A song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalizing the idea of women loving women". Artists including Hayley Kiyoko and Kehlani called Ora out for including lyrics like "Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls/ Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls", which they said contributed to continued stereotypes about same-sex female love simply being a phase. Now, Bardi's has chimed in on the conversation and explained her intentions with the song.

Cardi is back to tweeting as normal, including promotion of her "Invastion of Privacy" album and woes of pregnancy, however she's not back on Instagram yet. If Perry could she would not have written the song in the same way. I'm not saying I'm 70/30.
