Clearly, no one ever told Azealia Banks, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
The “212” singer sat down for an interview with the Guardian, and though topics ranged from dating to friends to apartments and everything in between, Banks seemed to struggle to find anything nice to say about anyone. Seriously, anyone.
What she may think is tough and sassy actually comes across as really bitchy. Some of the least classy things she had to say about others? Read on.
1. She’s not at all sorry for calling Perez Hilton a “f*****”
“I don’t regret doing it, but I’ll never do it again, because I don’t care enough about the person to have the battle again and defend my use of the word ‘f*****,'” she says. She goes on to say that, to her, a “f*****” is just a generic term for someone misogynistic, but then she turns around and does a little more gay bashing.
“A lot of gay men are way more misogynistic than straight men,” she says. “The shit they say about women behind their backs, it’s like: ‘Wow, oh my God!’ You can be a straight f*****, you can be a gay f*****. A f***** is anybody that hates women. It’s like, y’all sing along to my words when I’m saying ‘n****’ and ‘c***’, but as soon as I call this one white man a f***** the whole world exploded. Listen, I didn’t say all gay men are f*****s; I said Perez Hilton is a f*****, so don’t try and bring the rest of the gays down with your f*****ry.”
2. She’s great at burning bridges
Banks talks in her interview about working on a track with Disclosure. The track was ultimately never released and, apparently, that’s reason for her to be so dismissive of a band she says she used to “fangirl” over.
“I want to punch one of them in the face — the little one. The ugly one,” she says. “I want to hit him so bad.”
Since she just got done talking about fangirling over them, we totally believe that she doesn’t remember his name. Nope — she just wanted a chance to call him ugly. Not classy.
3. Her list of feuds is too long to count
How many does she mention in just this article? Several ex-boyfriends, Perez Hilton, all of Disclosure, Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Pharrell. She mentions more than three enemies for every friend she says she has.
