Taylor Swift & Lady Gaga Copied Azealia Banks, According To Azealia Banks
When it comes to Azealia Banks, it’s best to let her own words do the talking. So here we go. She posted a string of Facebook updates overnight, alleging that Taylor Swift stole the “Slay-Z” nickname from her for one of the “Bad Blood” characters. Banks also claims that she coined the “witch-hop” genre label, and implies Lady Gaga copied it by calling her next album Artpop (this isn’t the first time she’s made a claim like this against Gaga).
While lobbing those darts, Banks made a salient point about getting heavily criticized merely for tweeting, while her male contemporaries get more leeway even when they engage in real-world bad shit like drug dealing, gun violence, domestic abuse, etc. (That said, not all of her bad behavior is confined to social media.)
