Thank God! Azealia Banks Reportedly Turns Twitter Account Over To Be Managed By Her Record Label
21-year-old Azealia Banks is no stranger to Twitter beef. To be perfectly honest, there a lot of people who don’t know her for her actual occupation, which is a rapper/entertainer. Instead, many only know her for having diarrhea of the mouth and her infamous social media squabbles with other celebs. In 2013 alone, the Harlem emcee has made headlines for using her Twitter page to blast Rita Ora, deeming her as a “Rihanna understudy,” telling rapper A$AP Rocky that he needs to “come out of the closet” and justifying her use of derogatory gay slurs. And that’s just in 2013, not even counting previous issues she’s had with T.I., Nicki Minaj, Lil Kim, Iggy Azealia, Jim Jones and a host of others. Basically she’s been doing the most and many have expressed concern that her sharp tongue could be irreversibly damaging her budding career.
It appears that the “212” rapper’s management team may have shared similar concerns because according to The YBF, Azealia has turned her Twitter account over to be managed by her label. While this is may be bad news for fans and Twitter users who follow the rapper just so that they can watch drama unfold, this is probably one of the best decisions that Azealia has made in awhile. We can’t say that it will do much for her short temper, but it will serve as somewhat of a barrier, keeping her from tweeting before she really takes time to think the damaging messages that she tweets out for her 344,865 followers to see.
There’s been no word on whether or not any of her other social media accounts have been turned over to Universal Music Group as well, but she appears to still be managing her own Instagram account.
What other celebs do you think should consider having their social media pages managed by their labels?
