  1. She says she doesn’t have a problem with the word, N!gga. I’m sure she would kick up a major fuss is Perez Hilton called her that.

    1. cause she would they all do – but it’s ok to slag off gays? – ignorant bitch

      1. Ignorant n!gga bitch.

  2. Charming woman. And if I said “a n***a is not a black person. A n***a is any person who acts like a foul-mouthed, spoiled brat”… Well, I imagine you wouldn’t take too kindly to that abd rightly so. Hypocrite woman…

  3. She sounds positively lovely … :|

  4. A faggot is any male who acts like a female.?

    It’s depressing that people this noxious and this thick have followers of any sort in the first place.

  5. A pretty girl, nice face, but what filth comes from her. Homophobic or not, she needs to learn manners.

    1. “pretty” ? you got your beer goggles on then? She looks like an ugly bloke in a bad wig.

  6. What a key-unt.

  7. The BBC ranked Angel Haze (the rapper Banks was having an argument with) third in sound of 2012, not Azealia.

        “Potty mouth” – the Beeb had that right!!!

    1. Angel Haze was third in sound of 2013 (just announced). Azealia was third last year (sound of 2012)

    Azealia essentially identifies as a queer woman, not attracted to either male or female in particular, but to the spirit of a person. This is quite a socially privileged position. It would not be so easy for a young man or woman with a similar or traditional social background to adopt this sexual identity. It obviously requires quite a metropolitan, liberal environment to exist.
    By using such bigoted rhetoric, she is reinforcing the power and position of traditionalists. She cannot just pick and choose which position she holds. She cannot promote sexual freedom and her own sexual identity whilst simultaneously stereotyping and discriminating against others.
    Ergo, with great regret I must conclude that Azealia Banks is probably a hypocritical idiot.

    1. I imagine her “identification” won’t matter to most people, because after an outburst like this I can’t imagine men OR women being particularly attracted to her.

      She seems to have an especially unattractive “spirit” of her own.

  9. I’d say also a pretty misogynistic stance by Banks as she is saying that it is somehow a bad thing to be a woman. Pretty stupid in that she is a woman herself. I mean…just what is wrong with a male acting like a female or a female acting like a male? Moreover, how on earth is a male supposed to act and how on earth is a female supposed to act. People are people and anyone who tries to put you down for not being man or woman enough is clearly as sexist bigot. In Banks’ case, I would say that she is not only a homophobic bigot, but a transphobic and sexist one too. What a loser!

  10. Ignorant, uneducated, can’t spell, poor grammar, homophobic…the list goes on. It surprising how many of these “Rap music” people are foul-mouthed bigots; does it say something about their target audience?

    1. It says more about their lowlife origins in backward holes of lost America. I doubt you could even have a conversation with her judging what verbal diarrhoea she is spouting. She has money and that is all.

      Where she comes from that is all that matters.

      How many successful rap artists have set up charities to do good works?

    2. ergo, her fans are also “ignorant, uneducated, can’t spell, poor grammar, homophobic”. she must be a charming dudette ‘telling it like it is no doubt, ho!’ couldn’t agree more a_k. i wouldn’t have thought perez hilton needs our support, but this girl’s prettiness ends at her name. forget the airhead.

    I think Perez Hilton is a vile, disgusting, bitchy & not funny. who actually thinks its funny to slag off other people abit like Russell Brand really. I cant stand the man & I think Azealia Banks said right to him. because he deserves it & more, because he puts down us gay people to make us look bad & btw the original term for F***t is actually a Irish term for loser or bum. its the americans that have corrupted the word offensively not the british or irish.

    1. Rudehamster 5 Jan 2013, 1:46pm

      Hmmm….’Azelia Banks said right to him’? Really? Try speaking English and using a spell & grammar check, lest we think you an illiterate idiot with no internet or keyboard skills.

      Also ‘faggot’ has nothing to do with the Irish at all. Again…learn how to use the internet and/or a dictionary. Please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_%28slang%29

      Lastly, Bruce Willis is dreadful.

    2. I’m Irish and have never heard of that supposed meaning of the word. It’s a horrible, offensive and hurtful thing to call someone. I don’t like Perez either but I’m disgusted at Azealia for her homophobic and misogynistic remarks. She strikes me as trying to keep up with the male centered rap scene by putting down her own gender.

      1. ...Paddyswurds 5 Jan 2013, 8:56pm

        ….and refers to the bundle of sticks used to burn Gay men or “witches” at the stake….

        1. Or a tasty meatball too. Best eaten with “mushy peas”.

        2. No, it doesn’t. The use of ‘faggot’ to describe gay men is 20c, there is no such reference – not even a hint of it – from the period when people were burnt at the stake.

      2. BruceWillisFan 6 Jan 2013, 10:10am

        Rudehamster & Jules you are both hateful & mean dumb idiots who deserve everything that you get & by the way Rudehamster you are still 1000% wrong about the term “f****t”. it is still originally a Irish and Liverpudlian slang for a lazy person. its just all the stupid americans that have corrupted the word & turned it into a highly offensively term for homosexual. not the british or irish. just look at the proof what musical comedian Mitch Benn said at last paragraph for defending the word from the song Fairytale of New York & Lastly, Bruce Willis is one of my all time favourite acting heroes so shut your god damn & go f**king die. see how you like it Rudehamster. now thats funny. :)

        1. Not according to Michael Quinion: It’s much more likely that it comes from a term of abuse — known from the early eighteenth century — for a shrewish, bad-tempered or offensive woman, often as old faggot or silly old faggot. This usage survived well into the twentieth century, until it was eased out by the homosexual sense, still to be heard, for example, on British television shows and films into the 1970s. It turns up, to take just one case, in one of the Ingoldsby Legends by Richard Barham (1840): “The Baron started: ‘What’s that you say, you old faggot?’ He ran round by his horse’s tail; The woman was gone!”

  12. Who ?

  13. As depressing as it is to have someone “famous” call someone a faggot on social media, the worst part is actually the “go kill yourself” bit of what she said.
    People really need to think before they open their mouths (or type away). “Stop bullying” doesn’t just apply to schools. Adults are the worst culprits!

    1. I have to agree that “go kill yourself” is bullying and I don’t condone bullying and feel that was wrong. I do condone someone defending their self in the same manner in which they are bullied however. Twit for Twat. And Hilton has certainly bullied many people in the past so what he put out there just came back to him. That’s called accountability for your actions/words or more simply KARMA.

  14. She’s obviously a homophobe – and stupid. As annoying as this Hilton fella is, she will be a role model to some youngsters, so she shouldn’t use language like this.

  15. She sounds kind of stupid!

  16. Yet another bigot making bisexuals look bad.

  17. Can we just put them in a ring and let them kill eachother?

  18. Jock S. Trap 5 Jan 2013, 2:40pm

    Another nasty little person, how boring. Wonder if she telling young teens etc to kill themselves too? Vile, discriminating hypocrite!

    Who is she anyway?

  19. Never heard of her before reading this article, and never been a fan of rap. Still, she comes across more as an attention seeking little brat than an artist with anything worth sharing. She’ll disappear soon enough. Her kind always does. We’ll hear a snippet about her in 10 years or so, when they do one of those “whatever happened to…” specials. She’ll have “found god”, gotten fat and had a buttload of kids, I have no doubt.

  20. Remember what Chris Rock once said: “There’s black people and then there’s n*****s”. As a black person myself, I agree with him. And this hoodrat falls into the latter category.

    1. And you’re a prat. As expected there are people who have have ticked your comment. But surely that’s not racism??!!

  21. Wow, she has a ton of internalised misogyny as well as homophobia… “a f****t is any male who acts like a female”? And what exactly is wrong with acting like a female? You are one yourself! She needs to work on her shit…

  22. “A faggot is any male who acts like a female”? And what exactly is wrong with that?? You are one yourself! Seems like she has a ton of internalised misogyny as well as homophobia.

    1. Oops, I realised it looks like I was implying she was a male that acts like a female… I was actually saying she’s a woman herself so why would she think that’s bad. I should have worded it better… :/

    2. PantoHorse 6 Jan 2013, 1:17pm

      A-typical attitudes among those she hangs out with, those whose music she likes and the genre within which she herself fits.

  23. What an ignorant hostile bitch. Another young black rapper who hates gay men, especially non-straight acting gay men. It’s really becoming cliche.

  24. Can we vote them both off the island?

    1. So long as you don’t send them either of them over the Atlantic to us thank you very much.

  25. Perez Hilton is a very angry man

    1. Gene in L.A. 5 Jan 2013, 6:16pm

      No, really??

    2. and immensely irritating at that

  26. The current popular crop of female rappers depress me; the ones who obviously make it with ‘ironic’ porn-rap are the only ones who seem to get lauded. It reinforces the idea that a female rapper is only as good as her sexual bravado. We make ‘em when we buy their records, and then break ‘em when we discover they are ‘messy’ twerps (to use an Azelia phrase). If us the punters want cerebral female hip hop artists then lets throw our coinage after them instead.

  27. If I understand her correctly, she’s saying that because she uses the “N” word, that makes her use of the “F” word acceptable. Yup, she’s stupid.

  28. Ho!

  29. Lion in Winter 5 Jan 2013, 7:08pm

    To think of what Donna Summer had to deal with in the 80′s… and the jury is still out on whether or not the Queen of Disco who wrote and partied and was dear friends with plenty of gays said what she is alleged to have said…

    Is this where pop culture has brought us in the last generation?

  30. Another highly educated, intelligent and compassionate rapper – the McDonalds of music – junk.

    1. They do a new mayo-chicken for just 99p. Quality.

  31. ““omg u should just kill yourself… Like for real… lol what a messy faggot you are.”

    She sounds like one of the silly, immature girls of around 12yrs who go on Twitter, think they’re so clever and intersperse their inane comments with ‘lol’ every few words. Pathetic.

    She needs to grow up, get some self-esteem and grow up (yes, I said that twice). Her stupid comments speak volumes about her. Just another mouthy, insecure mess. Pity she got famous so early. It’s clearly done her no favours.

  32. LMAO. she’s right and my new hero. that perez freak is a messy faggot who is disgusted by his own faggotry and takes it out on others for attention. I pray anonymous takes down his web site one day and stifles his stupid voice forever. he’s almost as big an asshole as Kanye West.

    1. BruceWillisFan 5 Jan 2013, 9:22pm

      Well said Rob & I couldn’t 100% highly agree with you more about that disgusting vile twat Perez Hilton. he truly deserves having his face smashed in by Bruce Willis

      1. Perez Hilton has anger issues

      2. Willis fan here too btw. To clarify, if you are going to make a living at namecalling and slagging others then you should be prepared to take the same kind of heat. Perez, Kanye & Kim, et al get far more attention than they deserve and is just sickening that we have a society that reveres people like this instead of those who work to better the lot of others. IMO the word faggot can be aptly applied to some and here the appellation fits Hilton. Fergie and will.i.am should gang up on him. LOL

  33. Rap=Crap!

  34. She’s not homophobic, she produced a song for the scissor sisters.

  35. They are both idiots.

  36. Just boycott her pure and simple. Starting now, for 5 full years ; a fair strong sentence for insulting us all, that should make others think before attacking us. When will all those people listen, once and for all??
    Oh, I forgot. NEVER, because the gay community has a lot of vocal power but no balls and no muscle. Unless we organise serious, ongoing , publicised and effective damaging boycott campaigns against all those/any public figure who attacks us, to ANY degree, the bigots and the prejudiced will keep on laughing at us, with reason!!
    They punch us , we break their leg!! that’s unfortunately the only way they’re ever going to listen.

    1. Agreed, there are too many apolitical gay airheads more interested in playing the stereotypical , idiotic passive roles for the mainstream entertainment.

  37. Who cares what the skanky cow with the weave says, she’s so over.

  38. She say fag you lot use the n word nice to know what is bubbling under the surface

  39. Shame for her she did not make these comments before 2012, then the homophobic bbc would have ranked her first on their rubbish music sh*t heap list.

  40. As a n out gay man I also dislike Perez Hilton he makes his way in the world by being highly offensive and derogatory to everyone he choses to try and destroy. Are we really now not allowing people to retort? When did we gays become so closed minded? He slagged her off she slagged back, I am not offended by the use of the word faggot.

    1. byterider 7 Jan 2013, 3:56am

      So you into the cumguzzling or the arselicking? Disgusting, filthy fag! (Ref: CDC.org, homosexuals banned from donating blood)

  41. Who the hell is this bitch anyway? Never heard of her!

  42. Alan Edwards 8 Jan 2013, 3:02pm

    I was amused to see that execrable female described as a “hoodrat”. One has to wonder whether or not she has created an identity for herself in order to gain “hood” credibility and thus sell record. It could be that she has all of the qualifications to get her into Vassar or MIT….but I kinda guess not. She is a foul-mouthed, ill-educated gutter-dweller. The very best way to remove this nuisance from our screens is to contact the Recording Company stupid enough to give her a contract AND to encourage people not to buy her records. She will soon be jettisoned back to whatever hood sewer she emerged from and will live out an unprofitable, “mighta-bin” existence gaining weight and probably in the thrall of illegal substances. Then….the sewer will reclaim her!

  43. Rap. It so brings out the best in such inclinded people, and mainly black it seems. Time for Rap to to get ditched, invented for so called ‘artists’ who actually can’t sing that well!
