A$AP Rocky’s Shaming Of Rita Ora Says More About Him Than Her

The Shaming Of Rita Ora Says More About A$AP Rocky Than Her

The Debrief: Rapper’s gone in on Rita explicitly and you'd hope he's the one who comes out looking the worst from it...

UPDATE: A$AP's attempted to defend his lyrics by telling Annie Mac on her radio show that: 'I'm just saying that when I was in a relationship and I did things with her that I wasn't supposed to do, she had a big mouth.' Right - does that mean he cheated on someone with her or...? He added: 'I just want to clarify, this isn't me saying, "People, don't go listen to Rita Ora," or "She's an ugly person" or nothing, I'm not saying she's a terrible person.'

Then what are you saying, Rocky? That you just want to expose a woman's private life to help make her feel like shit?

Rita Ora isn’t everyone’s favourite singer, but regardless of what you think of her music or the way she speaks or what she chooses to wear or who she’s dated or whatever else you think you know about her, it’s pretty hard to think she deserves to be slut-shamed on A$AP Rocky’s new album.

The rapper, who’s just ‘dropped’ his album A.L.L.A. also ‘dropped’ pretty gross hints that him and Rita had something on the song Better Things:

‘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.’

If you need this deciphering then you’ve a more innocent mind than ours and we’re kind of jealous, but basically, it means that next time he sees Rita Ora he’ll be mean to her because she ‘bitched out’ which means she got ‘pissed off over some little/insignifigant thing’, if Urban Dictionary serves us correctly.

What did she (allegedly – remember he could be making this all up) get annoyed about? Not wanting to swallow, it seems.

Apols, but since when did a woman not consenting to a certain part of a man’s sexual predilections (the sort that sees the woman gain no direct physical pleasure) make her fair game to shame in a song?

More’s the shame that A$AP feels he has to resort to this sort of playground meanness. He could be making it all up, yes, but still, does making Rita look bad (or at least trying to make Rita look bad) make him look any better? Now he just looks like a man who can’t feel big without repeating what he’s seen in porn. And then blabbing about it. Super grown up.
