Azealia Banks Claims Lady Gaga Stole “Red Flame” From Her

Azealia Banks reignited her beef with Lady Gaga on Twitter last night (September 17), claiming that Gaga stole ARTPOP song title “Red Flame” from a demo Banks sent her, which was supposed to be a collaboration between the two for Gaga’s forthcoming album. The outspoken rapper tweeted, “@ladygaga make sure u let them know where u got the title for red flame from. U stole that from the demo I sent u.” Banks then played it off as a “don’t worry, this one’s on me” thing, before levying the coldest attack there is: “Team Katy.” Ouch.

Obviously, we have no idea what happened behind the scenes here. But back in February, Banks teased the song during a video chat, so she definitely had some form of the track in her possession.

Head below to see Azealia’s tweets, which as of this writing haven’t provoked a response from Lady Gaga.





Last month, Gaga announced that Banks would not appear on ARTPOP. Soon after, Banks claimed Gaga copped her style by rocking mermaid outfits, and when a fan asked Gaga about the rapper a couple weeks later, Mother Monster said Yung Rapunxel “has a bad attitude.” This is more harrowing than watching Jesse and Walt’s falling out on Breaking Bad.

    Put a sock in it Azealia!! Gaga never said Red Flame would be on the album.

    duh… that’s not stealing. They were recording the track together, Gaga decided to use something Azealia wrote as a title. The track will probably not even be on the album.
    I’ve got to stop reading about Azealia because her music is great and I won’t be able to listen to it again after I get pissed off for all this nonsense. She’s just pressed because she’s not on the album anymore, and the reason is probably the same as the consequence: she talks too much trash.

    Unmm, Azealia never said that, as far as I know. I follow her tweets religiously and Azealia HAS NOT talked about Gaga in a long time. Azealia said “Team Katy” because she was at an event & someone was covering Katy’s song which Azealia liked….that is why she said “team Katy”. It had nothing to do with Gaga at all.
    I’m starting to think the media has something against Azealia because they are lying on her and people just fall for their lies. DON’T BELIEVE THIS ARTICLE. IT’S A LIE.

      Except she did say that. If you follow her Tweets religiously you would have seen them. Try going back through her Tweets from the past 24 hours. They’re there. As for Azealia herself, why are we even bothered about what she’s saying? She’s irrelevant. One hit song does not a star make. If we’re to take her seriously then bitch needs to earn her stripes.

      Spare yourself the embarrassment and check your resources again hun! I wonder why the media and the rest of the world hates Azealia…oh yeah, cause she’s a bully.
