Iggy Azalea Blasts Azealia Banks for Being a ‘Bigot’ and ‘Bully’
Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are reigniting their beef. After Azealia put Iggy on blast during her emotional interview with Hot 97, the “Fancy” rapper has fired back.
Azealia trashed her rap rival, who was nominated for four Grammys. “That Iggy Azalea shit is not better than any fu**in’ black girl that’s rapping today,” she told Ebro and Peter Rosenberg. “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent.”
She broke down in tears while discussing the “culture smudging” of America. “When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘You’re great. You’re amazing. You can do whatever you put your mind to.’ And it says to black kids, ‘You don’t have shit. You don’t own shit, not even the shit you created yourself.’ And it makes me upset.”
*NY rapper Azealia Banks just brought Dolce & Gabbana’s new racially-insensitive clothing and accessory line back into the headlines with a series of tweets.
A month after the Italian design house’s controversial spring 2013 collection made its debut at Milan Fashion Week, Banks took to Twitter this past weekend to say she is boycotting the line over its imagery. “Definitely boycotting Dolce & Gabanna,” she tweeted. “Whoever designed that racist ass Dolce and Gabanna collection needs a swift kick in the mouth and a big d**k up the ass. “I really hate when people do corny, racist things then try to justify it as ‘art.’” “It’s all just really unnecessary. the clothes in the collection were fine without all the ‘black mammie’ imagery.” – – Read more
Nothing like starting the week off with some racism-inspired earrings to decorate these lobes! First, it was plantation weddings, now it’s “slave earrings.” Apparently making a mockery of slavery is so chic these days that Vogue Italia decided to highlight it as the newest fashion craze: Jewelery has always flirted with circular shapes, especially for use in making earrings. The most classic models are the slave and creole styles in gold hoops. If the name brings to the mind the decorative traditions of the women of colour who were brought to the southern Unites States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom Colored stones, symbolic pendants and multiple spheres. And the evolution goes on.
