The pop star released her single, Baby, yesterday (1 March).
Following criticism received from fans on the new track, Charli XCX has taken to social media to respond. In a series of tweets posted last night (1 March) she wrote: “OK – I’m not mad – promise – I just find the commentary interesting so I had to just dip into Stan world for a sec: to me this is undeniably my most coherent era. Like OBVIOUSLY. whether you LIKE it or don’t, I don’t care but it’s cohesive & consistent:” [sic]
On the mixed responses to Baby she stated: “Also – again – not bothered that some people will always have their preferred eras etc (that’s why it’s fun being an angel – there’s so much variety) – but if you don’t think baby is a bop then… idk that’s just v suspicious to me…”
Charli also responded to one fan who called her ‘mother’. “OH and finally if u wanna throw around midlife crisis fucking throw it at me – I’m getting older, I’m getting hotter, my tits are stunning, I’m in great shape, I’m dancing, I’m progressing and I’m living my best life – and that the tea”.
She added, “But dw. I honestly still love y’all. but i’m not gonna let u talk ur talk without me having my say too”.
