Azealia Banks is at it again. The female MC known for her fiery temper took to Twitter a couple of days ago to make catty comments about ASAP Rocky‘s recent interview in The Coveteur. Unfortunately, the article has since been edited but Huffington Post comes through with the excerpt.
“I feel like with the red lipstick thing, it all depends on the pair of complexion, I’m just being for real. You have to be fair-skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like—f***king for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls cant do… Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the f*ck…”
Although the comments didn’t seem to be directed at Miss Banks, she certainly did take them personally. Having already feuded with Jim Jones, Iggy Azalea, T.I., Angel Haze, Perez Hilton and Baauer it comes as no surprise that Azealia went on a giant Twitter rant about this one.
Read her tweets and additional details after the break.
Once again, Azealia has stooped as low as to use sexual orientation in her debate. It’s not Rocky’s fault he was asked the question he was asked. He responded with a very general statement based on his own personal preference. This refuels criticisms Banks faced earlier this year when she feuded with Perez Hilton, calling him a “F****T”. In a separate incident with Baauer over his hit “Harlem Shake” single she used a barrage of homophobic slurs against him. Azealia did however, quickly respond to criticisms over her “Closet” tweet.
Last year, ASAP Rocky spoke on homosexuality and homophobia in an interview with HardKnockTV.
“I’m a heterosexual man. I never been gay a day of my life. Used to be homophobic, but as I got older, I realized that wasn’t the way to do things. I don’t discriminate against anybody for their sexual preference, for their skin color… That’s immature. Not only that, not only do I know the difference between that, but I’m wise enough to know that that’s just stupid and wrong, and I’m just trying to spread that to everybody.”
Rocky has also recently discussed his friendship with Azealia Banks in the March issue of XXL magazine.
I think with the Azealia thing, she still hasn’t broken off from the weird hipster thing to mainstream. You know where she went wrong? She’s too disrespectful to the older people. It’s like ‘Don’t do that ’cause your records won’t sell’. That’s just one of the biggest sins, to disrespect your elders. I feel like you shouldn’t do that. She’s kind of reckless with that. I know her, she used to go out with ASAP AV back in the days. Don’t do that, Azealia. God blessed you for a reason.
Clearly she didn’t take his advice.
