Azealia Banks Is A Badass Cowgirl In Her “Liquorice” Video

Maybe it’s the image of a badass on a horse sporting a gun, but Azealia Banks‘ new video for her 1991 track “Liquorice” feels more or less inspired (or at least conveniently in tune with) the recently released trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Django Unchained… with a whole assortment of phallic-like objects thrown in: in the Rankin-directed clip, Azealia sports bull horns, wields a baseball bat, seductively licks a Popsicle and takes a mouthful of a hot dog. Strangely, no sight of any liquorice.

The MC’s outfits in the video, which include sexy cowgirl chaps and a patriotic two-piece, were designed by Lady Gaga‘s stylist Nicola Formichetti. We thought that stars-and-stripes number looked a little “Telephone”-esque.
