Azealia Banks Doesn't Care About the Word 'Faggot': VIDEO


Azealia Banks doesn't care about the C-word, the F-word, or the N-word she tells Channel [V] host Billy Russell. She also talks about how old people don't get the idea of what a "Twitter personality" is, and she'll gladly take the label of icon but it isn't enough:

"I am kind of like an icon so early in my career but I havent' reached that level of superstardom yet where it's like I'm so visible to everyone. That's the moment I'm waiting for where it's like supreme visibility."

  1. Who is this woman?

  2. Dream on nutcase. You will NEVER reach any level of superstardom. Bigots only fade away as the has-beens they really are.

  3. The answer to her ignorance is to help her miss out on her dream of superstardom. If we have one ability, that is it!

  4. An ego in search of a brain.

  5. Who is Azealia Banks, why is she notable and why is she being interviewed about slurs? Some context would help this article greatly.

  6. Gurl, first you need to put out a quality album.. One good single (212) does NOT an icon make..

  7. Icon? Seriously? I have never heard anyone even mention this girl's name, except to call her out for her ignorant comments.

  9. "Who is Azealia Banks, why is she notable and why is she being interviewed about slurs? Some context would help this article greatly." I agree. Who is she? I have never heard of her before...perhaps she is being so controversial in order to get noticed.

  10. "Everything I do must be for my own benefit and I think everyone else should be that way."

    What exquisite irony that Ayn Rand reincarnated as a D-list black pop star.

  11. My god, how the word "icon" has fallen.

  12. In order to be considered an icon, I think it's first necessary that people know who you are. Apparently this woman's main claim to fame is that she engaged in a Twitter war with Perez Hilton during which she called him "a messy faggot."

    She has since explained that her definition of faggot is any male who acts like a female. She also claims to be bisexual.

    I don't think getting in a Twitter war with anyone makes you an icon, but maybe Ms Banks has her own definition of that word, too.

  13. She's relying on shock value to make headlines. That won't last. I'm sure she burned some bridges in the process too.

  14. Forunately, I'm an iconoclast.

  15. Like, as if I care what, like, this cow says.

  16. Icon? Please.

    Do something, anything notable... and then maybe.

    I guess 'I'm big on Twitter!' is the new 'big in Japan.'

  17. Icon? No. but i absolutely love her and I think she's right about the generation gap.

    Posted by: RW | Mar 25, 2013 10:23:04 PM

  18. Generation gap my a**! She's a DUMB B***H

  19. Please just put out a good album. Then we can talk about icon stuff. Actually just have 3 hit singles first.

  20. compare an early interview with Madonna and this interview - the lack of charisma is...rather apparent. I will do my best to not judge this 21 year old. I don't think being narcissistic is going to help (or has helped) her creative process.

  21. I'm fed up with faux-talented females being given publicity for supposedly saying "edgy" things.

    Posted by: Adam | Mar 25, 2013 10:53:55 PM

  22. She sings? Acts? On reality series or just fizzles on YouTube? Another delusional personality whoring for attention.

    Posted by: Bambinoitaliano | Mar 25, 2013 10:54:12 PM

  23. Way to alienate the one group that could have made her an icon. Where do you think madonna, Kylie or lady gag would be without the gays ?

  24. *Gaga

  25. No one wants to know what she ate for breakfast. This chick is not only self-absorbed but BORING.
