Azealia Banks is a ‘Broke “Ice Princess” with Expensive Taste’

Azealia Banks

It's been a while since we talked about Azealia Banks, mostly because her musical output (fantastic though it is) kind of got eclipsed by her feuding with everyone. Thankfully, her album Broke with Expensive Taste (iTunes) has finally seen its long overdue and highly anticipated release–SHE'S BACK! THANK HEAVENS SHE'S BACK! It's like a Christmas miracle! (I'm fully aware that Xmas is still over a month away, let me have this.) Anyway, here's MORE

Azealia Banks thinks Lady Gaga stole one of her songs

Azealia Banks

Back when ARTPOP was first announced, Azealia Banks was reportedly going to be collaborating on a track with Lady Gaga. And then Azealia decided that she was going to get in another feud because that's literally half her career right there, and Gaga dropped her. Well, Azealia is apparently taking this about as well as you think he would, because now she's accusing Gaga of stealing a song from MORE

Here’s Azealia Banks’ diss track for Angel Haze

Azealia Banks "No Problems"

Oh, this feud is really a thing that's happening now, isn't it? Well, here's Azealia Banks' shot back at Angel Haze called "No Problems," after Azealia told people to stop pretending they were from New York, and then Angel was like "shut up," and then Azealia was like "no, you shut up," and then I drank a bottle of mouthwash because dammit straight to hell. I love them both, and I appreciate they're making some good out of this, but this is MORE

Azealia Banks and Angel Haze’s Twitter feud

Azealia Banks and Angel Haze

For some reason, Azealia Banks and Angel Haze got into some sort of Twitter feud after Azealia made an off-hand tweet about people who weren't raised in New York shouldn't claim to be from New York, and Angel took it personally. What came next was... Honestly, just really stupid. I love them both, but this was dumb as hell. Via HuffPo ... Though there was no mention of Haze, the excitable rapper clearly took offense, firing off a string of MORE

Listen to Azealia Banks’ new single, “BBD”

Azealia Banks "BBD"

Greetings and salutations, every one. Hopefully, you all had a wonderful New Year's! (For the record: I spent mine caring for my super sick boyfriend. My hypochondria had a freaking field day with that one.) Anyway, to kick of 2013, here's Azealia Banks' new single, "BBD," and for those of you wondering: No, I have no idea what BBD stands for. I mean, I have an idea, but it's remarkably not safe for work, so let's not go there. MORE

Video: Azealia Banks’ “ATLANTIS”

Azealia Banks' "ATLANTIS"

Out of all the songs off of Azealia Banks' mix tape Fantasea, I didn't really expect "ATLANTIS" to be the next single to be released (I would have guessed either "FIERCE," "CHIPS," or maybe "US") but that's okay because the music video is amazing. It's like some sort of cross between The Little Mermaid and Reboot, although personally I just love anything that involves sharks. Every music video can be made better with the inclusion of sharks.

Azealia Banks’ “LUXURY” video is here!

Azealia Banks "Luxury"

Holy frak, Azealia Banks has kind of been going hard on the whole music video thing, hasn't she?

The song is good, the video is beautiful and artsy, although it is sadly a bit MORE

STUNNING: Azealia Banks’ “1991” video!

Azealia Banks "1991"

Seriously, Azealia Banks' stunning new video is everything and more! Not only is "1991" a terrific track (the title cut from her EP), she sealed the deal with this killer video, girlfriend looks amazing plus it totally brings me back to the early nineties with the look and feel. Her upcoming full-length debut Broke With Expensive Taste is without a doubt one of next year's most anticipated releases, unfortunately the album was pushed back to MORE

Azealia Banks’ “Van Vogue” video!

Azealia Banks - "Van Vogue"

Let's all just bow down now ... I seriously can't get enough of up and coming superstar Azealia Banks! Watch while she breaks it down in her sexy new music video for "Van Vogue," off her totally stellar four-track EP 1991. This fall (it might actually be out next month?) she'll finally be releasing her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, which is definitely bound to be one of 2012's best releases! MORE

Banned: Azealia Banks’ Dazed & Confused cover

Azealia Banks

When your first big hit prominently features two lines containing the see-you-next-tuesday word (which we can't actually say because ... you know ... page views, we like them), it probably stands to figure that you really aren't uncomfortable getting a bit naughty. Unfortunately, despite the fact that most people are adults and can probably handle a few dirty words without spontaneously combusting, people will straight up ban you if you defy MORE

Azealia Banks for Alexander Wang

Azealia Banks

Just because we like her, and because we like seeing her dance, here's Azealia Banks in a short clip by Alexander Wang for French Vogue. And according to the little blurb attached to the video (I won't post it because it's French, so I'll just translate it for you) this is basically a neat little promotion for Alexander's T line, for which Azealia is the new spokesperson. So now you know! MORE
