Azealia Banks Lashes Out At Disclosure. Again.



It’s a close run thing and we’re yet to decide on an outright winner but Harlem born RnB starlet Azealia Banks seems to be intent on being awarded the most aggravating person within the scene as she continues to open her mouth without engaging her brain. Riding on the coattails of electronic music the ‘star’ has committed a number of music faux pas over the past year as she continues to indulge in childish diva behaviour over the smallest of incidents with perhaps the most embarrassing of PR fails being her very public blast of UK duo Disclosure with an honourable mention going to her spat with Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown.

The feud stems from a misunderstanding between Azealia and Disclosure when the popstrel set the internet chattersphere off with a tweet suggesting she was working on new material with the pairing in the studio. Cue Disclosure moving quickly to reveal that the excitable popstar may have got a bit ahead of herself when announcing that they were working together via her twitter account with Howard saying “We don’t have a song with her yet. I think she’s kind of taken to Twitter quite heavily with the fact that she’s meeting with us. People now think that we’ve made the greatest song of all time, and it doesn’t even actually have a chorus yet” and from there we ended up with one seriously pissed of Azealia.

Despite this nonsense occurring over a year ago it appears the motormouth singer is in no mood to move on recently saying “I want to punch one of them in the face – the little one. The ugly one. I want to hit him so bad. I saw him at the airport in Australia and I came over to him and I was like: ‘Hello? Like, what are we going to do with this song?’ And he was just being a dickhead. I started crying, I was so angry. I wanted to hit him. I cannot stand that little boy with all those pimples around his mouth. I love their music, though.” when  sat down with the Guardian to promote her long overdue album ‘Broke With Expensive Tastes’.

Our advice Azealia? Stop embarrassing yourself and let it go.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
