    She’s getting a shitload of free publicity, though. Until all this happened I had no idea who she was; now I don’t care who she is. Is that progress?

  2. A vile woman and terrible ‘musician’

    Perhaps she should do what she has been telling others to do or is that mean of me to suggest it?

  3. What a vile, disgusting excuse for a human being…

  4. Calling him dick breath? Is that her way of coming out as a lesbian?

  5. People like this are best ignored if you ask me. These vile, non-entities will be gone and forgotten before you can say ‘talentless’.

    1. If she was just an average Twitter user, I’d say yes, but she’s not. She has a large fan-base, and is clearly influential enough to deploy it on demand against her critics. This article doesn’t even scratch the surface with regards the hate levelled at Strudwick.

      1. large fan base? really?

        1. Well that depends who you are comparing her too. She certainly has a LOT of fans of twitter. Almost three hundred thousand. Many of whom have shown their willingness to bully, threaten and send death threats to those who criticise her.

          Her breakout single “212” has so far sold 118,000 via download alone. It was record of the week on Radio 1, number 9 of Pitchfork’s Top 100 (beating the likes of Kanye West and Adele).

          So yes, she is popular and she has a substantial fan base. To ignore somebody in the public eye who manipulates and misuses their fan-base would be wrong. Particularly when that fan-base consists mainly of teenagers who have already demonstrated how easily influenced and manipulated by her they are.

  6. yuck another piece of scum on the planet

  7. She’s trash. Pure trash. 212’s a good track, but I don’t think she’ll have that much success. I’d give her a year at best. She’ll make enough money to get out of the trash heap she was born in, then probs spend it all on drugs, and end up back on the trash heap. In 2 years no one will remember her name, or her music.

    1. 212 is an awful track! My cat makes better music than this vile excuse for a musician!

  8. That There Other David 22 Jan 2013, 4:57pm

    That’s hilarious. I can only imagine how good her song lyrics must be :-D

  9. If Lady Gaga doesn’t dissociate herself from Ms Banks, I think it will be bye bye Gaga.

    BTW Gaga is no longer the most followed person on Twitter.

    1. I was thinking absolutely the same thing. What was/is gaga thinking??

      1. I’ve already dumped Gaga.

        1. wow you guys are convincing me not to work with Azealia after all. cuz you know i read this internet sh*t when i’m not spending my millions

  10. She’s desperate for publicity. She needs to play all the card she can – the little talent she has is not going to do the trick.

  11. Jock S. Trap 22 Jan 2013, 5:07pm

    What a lovely person… Not!!

  12. Liam the God 22 Jan 2013, 5:18pm

    Does it remind you of a 12 year old trying to impress their friends by shouting abuse at strangers? Just me, then?

    1. No, me too, Liam. Her response is pretty much at that level or even younger. I’d also guess that she’s resorted to silly, immature insults because she can’t think of a smart enough response. She’s embarrassingly immature, in my opinion.

  13. This woman is such a knob.

  14. Edmund Rodgers 22 Jan 2013, 5:44pm

    Never heard of this woman before, but she sounds deeply unpleasant. I hope she finds the grace to apologise.

    1. Liam the God 22 Jan 2013, 5:51pm

      Her record of apologising for insulting and/or homophobic abuse is not good……

  15. jaxxyjbear 22 Jan 2013, 5:54pm

    never heard of her…and seeing how pleasant she is i have a feeling her talent isnt enough to get her attention.

  16. ...Paddyswurds 22 Jan 2013, 6:14pm

    Disgusting harridan. She has got to be an xtian. Only they could use such language and think it was OK…. Methinks her time in the limelight will be limited to the 15 minutes reserved for such oddities…..

  17. She seems very juvenile.

  18. Yes PErez Hilton is my gay role model and should be respected

  19. Brett Gibson 22 Jan 2013, 9:22pm

    She clearly just hasn’t grown up yet. You know that saying ‘kids are really mean’ because they don’t fully comprehend that what they do and say has consequences and repercussions on other people’s lives? Yeah, she’s clearly not very intelligent but mark my words one day she’ll realise the error of her ways. Until then, as a fan of her, she had one really good song (212) which barely even touched charts worldwide. The rest of her stuff is shit, she won’t get anywhere.

  20. I just tried to listen to her new release, 212, (I’d call it a song, but it’s not) and it’s just vulgar. But, considering the source I assume that’s all she knows. I feel sorry for her. Even more unfortunately, she could not possible understand why it is I feel sorry for her. Perhaps, one day, she can learn to be a civilized amongst polite society.

  21. Is Madonna tribute act lady Gaga still working with this fool?

  22. Patrick should have minded his damn business just like Perez should have. Azealia was minding her own business when another female rapper randomly attacked her on Twitter and Perez joined in and so did other people like Patrick. They ALL should have minded their business and left her alone because she wasn’t talking to or about any of them. It should also be noted that the rapper who started the fight with Azealia made fun of her dark skin and that Perez has a history of attacking people. He himself called Will.I.Am a faggot and then has the nerve to get upset and try to start a hate campaign against Azealia when she calls him one. Perez ALSO told Britney Spears to kill herself. Where was Patrick’s outrage then? Exactly. He was nowhere to be found.

    1. And this justifies Ms Banks language how?

  23. I had never heard of her, so I watched one of her videos before posting this comment; what an abrasive little creature she is. Her body language says hate and defiance.
    I suspect her “career” is going to be short.

  24. She seems keen to perpetuate the impression that she’s more than ordinarily stupid.

    There is a much more direct and easier way to express our revulsion at her low class language and being….let us not purchase her music in any way. Patronizing such evil bigots by LGBT people is like a Jewish person joining the Nazi party….it makes no sense….do not spend gay money upon homophobes or their businesses, or palces where they control everything. No money to those who self-desribe as our ‘enemies’ and make no mistake, she is our enemy by choice and we can decide not patronize her because she is an enemy to Our People and our struggle. Screw her and her evil KKKristianity….

    lmao that’s why i love Azealia Banks. she aint kissing nobody’s butt and you people saying she sux must not have heard Fantasea = her mixtape/album is f’n mesmerizing! She’s ALL THAT! and you just a used porno theater movie seat of a man

    1. Pope Ratlines de Nazi Argentina 26 Jan 2013, 1:42pm

      btw i was talking about Dickbreath, not the writer of this article.

      1. Pope Ratlines de Nazi Argentina 26 Jan 2013, 2:21pm

        correction lol not Dickbreath, (i didn’t read the article cuz the title had me laughing too hard LOL) but those British lames who were harrassing Azealia that morning; they were the real cyberbully wannabe Perez Hiltons trying to pick on Azealia for being a genuine person true to the vernacular of her NY upbringing. That’s the way New York people talk. Our schools are too sabotaged to train us to talk nice. Teachers are too busy f’ing the students… *next time i must read the article before calling someone a used porno theater movie seat of a man ;)

        correction lol not Dickbreath, (i didn’t read the article cuz the title had me laughing too hard LOL) but those British lames who were harassing Azealia that morning; they were the real cyberbully wannabe Perez Hiltons trying to get some shine by picking on Azealia (ultimately simply for being a genuine person true to the vernacular of her NYC upbringing.) That’s the way New York City people talk. Our schools are too sabotaged to train us to be nice; school in NYC ghettos is the jungle and in case you don’t know, Harlem is still the ghetto. Teachers, principals, & janitors are too busy f’ing the students to teach us good manors… Why don’t those British lames go after the Rothschild Banking Warmongers who conquer the planet nation by nation, war after war, str8 via the City of London? Instead like ants they crawl over to mess with a young woman trying to live her dreams. YOU COWARDS! *next time i must read the article before calling someone a used porno theater movie seat of a man ;)

Every war is cuz British Rothschilds want that ‘Axis of Evil’ nation’s banking under Rothchilds control.
