Azealia Banks Wants Black Media To Stop Covering Her: “You Have Done The Most To Damage My Brand”
If there’s one thing to be said about Azealia Banks, it’s definitely that the 24-year-old rapper is very passionate about her value as both a woman and an artist.
These days, it has become very common for celebrities and artists to freely verbalize their opinion on things. For Banks, this notion is nothing new: Nicki Minaj’s Madame Tussauds wax figure to Iggy Azalea’s cultural smudging to Kendrick Lamar’s Ferugson comments. The Harlem native is notoriously known to take her frustrations and thoughts to social media to let fans, followers and the general public alike know exactly what she thinks.
This afternoon, she stirred up conversation when she posted a picture via Twitter of an EBONY Magazine article regarding the cultural smudging beef between her and Iggy Azalea. Banks tweeted, “The only time I made it 2 ebony magazine was in a discussion of another white woman. Black media is counter productive.”
She continued sharing her feelings about the article, begging that Black media publications stop covering her because they’ve basically gone out of their way to damage her brand.
Azealia has since deleted her first tweet directed to EBONY, but kept the rest posted on her account.
Check out what Ms. Banks had to say below.
Do you agree? Or has Ms. Banks’ own ways caused people to focus more on her beefs than her music?
