Azealia Banks Issues Apology For Her Racist Behaviour | Music News

Nowadays, American hip-house diva Azealia Banks is more famous for her slurs and beefs than for the music she makes. In particular, her racially insensitive attack towards Zayn Malik and her racist comments against grime culture generated a huge backlash that led to the cancellation of her headlining spot at Born & Bred Festival, a grime festival organised by Rinse FM in London.


However, Banks just decided to take a step back, apologising for her behaviour and declaring that she won’t use “[…] the word F****T ever again.”


“The amount of people that get hurt when i use the word vs. the amount of people i’ve said it to are just not worth it,” she continued. “Honestly… This isn’t a cop out, its just me realizing that words hurt. and while i may be immune to every word and be thicker skinned than most, it doesn’t mean that i get to go around treating people with the same toughness that made my skin so thick”.


As of now, her Twitter account is still suspended following her beef with the ex-Direction, but who knows if this public apology will help Azealia in gaining back some popularity.

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
