With every generation of new musical artists, there will always be those outspoken individuals recognized by mainstream entertainment as controversial. In the late 80s to 90s, artists like Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson fit the controversial mold with their blasphemous presentations of faith, either through songs or character.
Today, the controversial musicians are the ones who have no fear expressing their opinions, even at the dismay of others, including other fellow musicians. A prime example of such an artist is Kanye West, in which both Taylor Swift and Beck would agree.
Though Kanye West is known as the “poster representative” of controversial musical artists today, another one who has kept entertainment media on their toes is Azealia Banks. The Inquisitr previously reported on the 23-year-old hip hop artist, primarily her issues with Iggy Azalea. Apparently, Azealia is upset that Iggy has kept quiet on the topic of black issues. Maybe that’s why Azealia is adamant that Iggy “doesn’t care about black people.”
However, the latest controversy from Azealia Banks was revealed in the upcoming release of her Playboy spread in an interview.
Along with other controversial statements, Azealia has made it clear how she feels about America by saying, “I hate everything about this country!’
According to FOX News, Azealia Banks started her interview by sounding off on why she is always in trouble for her Twitter rants.
“It’s always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk s–t about all these other b—–s, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner.”
Azealia Banks would change the direction of the conversation to the United States in general with broad blanket statement that she “hates everything about this country.” She then specifically pointed out what she hates being “fat white Americans,” or “racist, conservative white people who live on farms.” As for explaining her words or actions to fans, Azealia feels she doesn’t have to do that either.
“I get annoyed with the fact that I’m even asked to explain myself. Why do I have to explain this to y’all? My little white fans will be like, ‘Why do you want reparations for work you didn’t do?’ Well, you got handed down your grandfather’s estate and you got to keep your grandmother’s diamonds and pearls and s–t.”
Though the aforementioned statements paints Azealia Banks as a very difficult person to deal with, the Daily Mail empathized how she is utilizing her past. Apparently, Azealia had a very difficult childhood with her father dying when she was just 2. Relatives were strained with her abusive mother. Finally, Azealia left home at 14 to live with her sister. Also, her musical career was technically her fallback and was only pursued after her dreams of becoming an actress didn’t materialize.
The full interview, along with Azealia Banks’ full nude spread, will be available in Playboy’s annual April Sex & Music issue. The magazine hits newsstands on March 20.
