I’d be curious to see how she said that on stage... was it defiant or was it a bit passive? Not because it excuses her but the semantics give more of an insight of what she’s thinking. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s pissed off because she’s had to validate the fact she’s been with girls. It’s not something she seemed forthcoming to share. This whole thing has been handled atrociously. If they were intent on putting this song out they should have had a plan from the get go. The song isn’t remotely LGBTinclusive, and deciding to market it as such was lazy. Would we be so outraged if it was marketed as “this one time I was dating this guy and he really pissed me off in a club, and I’d always wanted to just throw men away and get with girls instead. And this song is a representation of that night.” I mean that’s wildly problematic in itself and quite frankly nothing could save this song from the shitstorm it deserves, but I wonder if honesty from the start rather than skirting around the questions or having atrocious PR saves would have stood her in a better sted. I don’t know... I just think it’s all a shame. We had so much hope for Rita and this mess just doesn’t make me wanna root for her even though I do. Ditch the song, take the loss and come back in September with a monster bop. Or they could have just changed the lyrics to having a fun party with ur girls, girls, girls. Can still sip red wine and not offend an entire community of women with that.
