Azealia Banks Thinks Nicki Minaj Is Playing the Victim
Another week, another Azealia Banks Twitter rant. This time, Banks' target was Nicki Minaj as the Harlem, NY rapper took shots at her counterpart over her quotes from yesterday's (Wednesday) New York Times Magazine profile. In the article, Minaj comments on Miley Cyrus and accuses the pop star of cultural appropriation. "You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important?," said Minaj of Cyrus. "Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.”
Below is Banks' response where she urges Minaj not to turn "this Miley thing into a race issue" and calls out Minaj for having an "enhanced body."
