She then went back and tweeted about the issue, explaining “Faggot means coward, liar, backstabber, energy stealer, blood sucker.”
Apparently Banks had even more F-bombs to toss.
In an interview the other day, she told Australian journalist Callum Twigger that she resents being called out for her words.
Well, we think that’s what she said. Home girl was not making a lot of sense:
““It’s kinda bullshit, I feel it’s kinda like hypocritical. For some reason this word, ‘faggot,’ is still so offensive—it’s just strange to see why. There are all kinds of people who are against the N-word in hip-hop music, there are all kinds of people who are against hip hop music in general, because they see it as a negative influence on African American culture, you know what i mean?
Why are all these other things like murder and sex and violence and all these other things accepted, but as soon as I call one gay white man a faggot, his feelings are more important? Freedom of speech, you know, and with freedom of speech comes the freedom to be offended, you know?”
Fuck being a faggot, fuck being a nigger. Fuck being whatever. There are such bigger problems… and then you’ve got organizations like GLAAD, which are fucking complete bullshit. I mean let’s look at it, it’s gay and lesbian alliance against defamation, or whatever? that’s what it stands for, right? I mean would you agree that homosexuals, and the homosexual community, have bigger problems than the word faggot, you know what I mean?”
No, Azealia we don’t know what you mean.
Those of us who aren’t celebrities don’t believe our shit don’t stink. We’re not constantly told how amazing and talented we are. We don’t think we’re being victimized when actually we’re being incredibly obnoxious.
…If you’re trying to call me a homophobe, you’re basically trying to imply that I’m insulting you for having sex with men. I have sex with men too – what the fuck? I have sex with men and women, do I have to take a picture of my licking a fucking pussy? What the fuck! It doesn’t make any sense. It’s so stupid. It’s so stupid and it’s so evil.
It’s just, like, this stupid fucking media shit, you know what I mean? It’s the media shit. And this is why I go about myself the way the way I go about myself, and I do whatever the fuck I want. If the media is going to build me up to tear me down, you motherfuckers are not going to tear me down.“I just make these fucking raps, and I’m just gonna wear these outfits, and fucking live my life. I can’t deal with you motherfuckers, I don’t have time for this shit.”
Broke With Expensive Taste, Banks’ debut album is expected out next month.
