After a LOT of public backlash over the past several days directed at her new song Girls, it sounds like Rita Ora has finally decided to walk things back a bit.

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.

Openly Gay Singer Hayley Kiyoko SLAMS Rita Ora's 'Tone-Deaf' Bisexual Anthem Girls: 'We Can And Should Do Better'

Not everyone is into Girls!

As we reported on Friday, Rita Ora dropped her summer '18 bisexual anthem featuring Cardi B, Bebe Rexha, and Charli XCX.

That same day, singer Hayley Kiyoko — who identifies as a gay woman — criticized the track on Instagram calling it "tone-deaf" and harmful to the LGBTQ community.

She wrote:

"I literally have a knot in my stomach right now. To be clear, I fully support other artists who freely express themselves and applaud male and female artists who are opening up more and more about their sexual identities. But every so often there come certain songs with messaging that is just downright tone-deaf, which does more harm than good for the LGBTQ+ community. A song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalizing the idea of women loving women."

The 27-year-old adds:

"I know that wasn't the intention of the artists on the song, but it's the lack of consideration behind these lyrics that really get me. I don't need to drink win to kiss girls; I've loved women my entire life. This type of message is dangerous because it completely belittles and invalidates the very pure feelings of an entire community. I feel I have a responsibility to protect that whenever possible. We can and should do better."

Rising newcomer Hayley Kiyoko has joined forces, lending her voice to Sweater Beats, for their new single Glory Days.

Very pop. It reminds us of a Hailee Steinfeld song. We really dig Hailee Steinfeld's music!

Jem And The Holograms? More Like Jem OR The Holograms! What Do U Think Of The New Trailer?

We were so excited for this!

Were.

Jem and The Holograms is totally still going to get our money since its full of nostalgia, but we're not as in love with the trailer as we were hoping to be.

While the video itself makes the movie look fun, it unfortunately has more of a Josie and The Pussycats 2 vibe than a remake of the the classic '80s cartoon.

Scooter Braun's choice to use One Direction as the background music was a definite plus, but we're hoping that Aubrey Peeples, Stefanie Scott, and Hayley Kiyoko can put the whole film on their backs and make this a hit!

Luckily, they'll have celebs like Molly Ringwald, Juliette Lewis, and Ryan Guzman to help steer them in the right direction.

Ch-ch-check out the first trailer for a magic-less Jem (above)!!!
