Does Rita Ora belittle lesbian feelings with her new song ‘Girls’?

In the chorus of Rita Ora’s new song ‘Girls’ she sings:

“Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, red wine, I just wanna kiss girls.”

Some people are critical of these lyrics because it implies that you need to drink wine to kiss girls, and it basically undermines bisexuality as a serious thing. When the first criticisms and questions were directed at Rita Ora she wouldn’t confirm that the song was about her relationship experiences with people like Cara Delevingne which felt a shame when she could have immediately dealt with the bad feelings about the song. “If people look at it like that, it’s very narrow-minded and I don’t think that’s what this record is. I don’t think that that even matters,” she said.

Well today she has spoken up and said,  “I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey.”
