Azealia Banks is on a roll. She finally got around to releasing much-delayed debut LP Broke With Expensive Taste (for a while there it looked like it would never grace iTunes) and earned a bunch of glowing reviews. It’s vindication of sorts for the polarizing diva but don’t expect success to tame her — or her legendarily annoying Twitter game. In fact, she’s coming even harder for your fave than ever before!

The “Chasing Time” femcee was interviewed by The Guardian recently and opened up about her attraction to old white men and her use of the word “faggot”. She also shed light on some of her Twitter beefs and didn’t hold back — particularly when it came to English producers Disclosure, who refused to release a song they worked on together. “I want to punch one of them in the face — the little one… the ugly one,” Azealia fumes.

“I want to hit him so bad. I saw him at the airport in Australia and I came over to him and I was like: ‘Hello? Like, what are we going to do with this song?’ And he was just being a dickhead. I started crying, I was so angry.” I guess we’ll never hear that unreleased collaboration then. She also threw shade at Iggy Azalea, saying: “Nobody’s going to go to Nobu and have a McDonald’s.” Her metaphor doesn’t actually make sense but it’s pretty clear she’s calling the Aussie rapper basic.

Do you like Azealia’s take-no-prisoners approach or she should find some chill? Have your say in the comments below.
