Azealia Banks Gets Naked For Playboy Magazine

It looks like Azealia Banks has taken some time off from obsessing over Iggy Azalea’s success. The Boombox reports that the controversial femcee has been spending her time taking her clothes off for none other than Playboy Magazine. She shared the news on Instagram with her fans earlier on Wednesday.

Guess who’s on the cover of @Playboy?! It will be on stands March 20th!!

Banks will reportedly be on the cover of Playboy Magazine‘s April issue, which is expected to be the music issue (which explains her presence). Her spread in the popular magazine was shot by famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, who is known for her work with A-list performers like Rihanna. The rapper posted at least one photo from the shoot as a teaser for her fans, which shows her peaking from behind a sofa while wearing a cat mask.

The Boombox writers anticipate that her interview in the magazine will spark new controversies for the year 2015, now that she’s become known for engaging in a lot of beefs on Twitter and the internet in general. Her major focus has always been on Iggy Azalea, who she has referred to as “Satan in the form of mayonnaise.” The writers don’t have to look far if they want to find more controversy surrounding Banks, because Edge Media Network reports that she is still trying to defend her use of the word “f****t.

Azealia Banks is known for using “the other f-word,” and has even used it directly against homosexual celebrities such as famed blogger Perez Hilton. However, she defends her use of the hateful slur by claiming it as a part of feminism — though there are feminists who heatedly disagree with this notion. That’s especially since both words are used to alienate and degrade behaviors that are seen as feminine. So if Azealia Banks is a feminist, wouldn’t she be equally as turned off by this word as she is by the word “bitch?”

Maybe Banks will address all of these different controversies that surround her in the April issue of Playboy Magazine. In the meantime, her fans and the interested media will have to satisfy their need for drama through reading her daily tweets. Just this afternoon she compared herself to Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell in a tweet about her Playboy Magazine cover shoot, but before that she retweeted a statistic that 87 percent of U.S. mass shootings are committed by white people. She has a lot of interests.
