Azealia Banks Talks New M.A.C. Lipstick, Alter-Ego and The C-Word
Spitfire rapstress Azealia Banks is known for having a potty mouth, both lyrically and digitally.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the Harlemite talked her new M.A.C. lipstick, her alter-ego Yung Rapunxel and using the c-word.
“Well, I’m from Harlem. I went to art school; I grew up with the cunts. And that term doesn’t come from me! People think I invented it, but I didn’t,” she explains. “To be cunty is to be feminine and to be, like, aware of yourself. Nobody’s fucking with that inner strength and delicateness. The cunts, the gay men, adore that. My friends would say, ‘Oh you need to cunt it up! You’re being too banjee.’ Banjee means unrefined and rough.”
She goes on to say, “You need your cunts: they fix your hair for you and do your makeup. They give you confidence and give you life.”
