It wasn’t about, oh we’re a bunch of girls, everyone is being mean to her and don’t want her on the song. No. She asked to be petty. Who gets paid for a charity project?,” James wrote. “At the end of the day it wasn’t about me. It’s about the greater good. Anybody standing in the way of that, they need to go.
