Rita Ora “doesn’t give a shit” about that A$AP Rocky diss, which described a sexual encounter in offensive detail with Ora on his At.Long.Last.A$AP track “Better Things.”
The 24-year-old British pop star told Hot 97 that she loves Rocky’s music but the issue to her is more about what people think they can get away with saying about women.
A$AP Rocky Admits Rita Ora Diss Was ‘Tasteless’
“I’m not looking at it like ‘you’re upsetting me’ because I don’t actually give a shit,” she said. “I think about it and I don’t want people to think it’s OK to speak about women like that. That’s it.”
Ora continued, “I don’t care what you say about me. I don’t give a flying fuck. That’s just how it is, but you know got to keep it moving. I’m very happy with what I do and I’m proud of who I am and what I represent.”
In the track, which was released in May, A$AP rapped, “I swear that bitch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the bitch out/ Kicked the bitch out once ’cause she bitched out, spit my kids out/ Jizzed up all in her mouth and made the bitch bounce.”
