Shots Fired: Azealia Banks Bashes & Lashes Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, & Taylor Swift

Azealia Banks‘ continues to flaunt her flare for fireworks.

The fiery femcee is no stranger to popping off on social media, a trait which reared its head again today on Twitter.

This time, it was Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, and attention-seeking singer Miley Cyrus who were on the ‘212’ rapper’s hit list.

Their crimes? According to Banks, being “basic” and releasing “whack” music.

Details below…

Clearly annoyed by the media attention the trio have been receiving following Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards,  Azealia took to Twitter today writing (read from the bottom up):

azelia-banks-nicki-minaj
azealia-banks-twit

 

Sigh.

Azealia really has approximately no clue.

At a point, her brutal brand of honesty had a refreshing appeal. But, now it’s proven to be her undoing, it’s somewhat sad seeing her still launching social media grenades while her album languishes at the bottom of the bubbling under charts. [As at writing ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ has sold 31,000 copies in the US…since November 2014]

And while some of her fans may rush to highlight that commercial success doesn’t define talent, the reality is that it’s what allows the names she’s dragging to appear on major platforms such as the VMA’s, while she sits flexing Twitter fingers.

For what it’s worth, we do feel she’s entirely right about Miley Cyrus. That is one try-hard movement we’ll never quite grasp.

But in any case…

Your thoughts?

    YALL loved her when she was coming for IGGY but now since she’s speaking REAL S*** about YALL favs it’s a problem. Ki. Go in Ms.Banks.

    • king September 2, 2015

      and still i bet you didnt even buy her album HAHAH

      she is THE TROLL OF THE MUSIC BUSINESS

      I WAS A FUN A BIG FUN OF HER AND THEN I READ HER TWEETS

      I CANT HEAR HER MUSIC ANYMORE

      SHE IS THE DUMBEST B**** IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS EVER!!!

      JEALOUSY IS HER ONLY MOTIVE IN LIFE

      • Cupid September 2, 2015

        This girl has always spoke her mind. She speaking nothing less tha. The truth. all of their music is basic. I’m a fan of all but Nicki’s music doesn’t have any real meaning anymore. Miley is pretty dope and Taylor is Taylor so her music is successful just because. It takes me awhile to understand what azealia’s music is saying but once I get it I realize how amazing she is. She comes off as a regular human being giving her opinion imo. I would agree that she should be more mindful

    • You tried September 2, 2015

      No I didn’t buy her album and don’t plan to! I don’t necessarily like her but the TRUTH is the TRUTH! Miley is a rich chick that once was popping for kids.. Taylor.. Luck is her middle name! And NICKI,….. Timing is her game! She’s the ultimate whack MVP!

      • king September 2, 2015

        IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT SHE SAY IT’S WHY SHE IS SAYING IT AND WHAT IS LAYING BEHIND IT CAN’T YOU SEE? THAT ONLY LOSERS TALK TRASH ABOUT OTHERS?

        SHE IS A LOSER THE ONLY WAY FOR HER TO GET FOLLOWERS IS TALKING TRASH – THAT’S ALL.

        I FIND IT VERY STUPID THAT PEOPLE DONT GET HER MOTIVES

        SHE HAS A self destruction PROBLEM AND SHE CAN TRY TO SAY THAT SHE IS OK BUT SHE IS DOOMED ON THAT PATH

        TRUST ME NO ONE WILL WANT TO WORK WITH HER AT THE END

        kudos to her she got 25 new kids without self confidence (they are probably trolls 2) to follow her

      • king September 2, 2015

        she is losing the game[[ who will want to send her beats for her next album /// dont forget that she is not making her music she is just a raper/singer she NEEDS people to like her

        who will want to associate with her?

        he can be doomed 2

        she needs REHAB

  2. #JACKIE September 2, 2015

    B**** you’re whack with your same sounding ass jungle music. Gtfoh. Sick of ha.

    • DEL BEY September 2, 2015

      Has Jackie moved 50k yet?

      • #JACKIE September 2, 2015

        Worry less about Ciara And more about your faves sobriety. F*** off t*****.

      • DEL BEY September 2, 2015

        The only t***** here is your manly adam’s apple fav, try help Zi book a main stage at least once this year boo

      • OMG Logic!!! September 2, 2015

        It’s definitely moved more than Azelia Banks ever will that’s for sure.

  3. Beyonce September 2, 2015

    LOL….Talk that truth….it is definetely a constest of the basics.
    there’s indeed only one queen in music : BEYONCE.
    shut up jackie

  4. DEL BEY September 2, 2015

    Azealia is a bright girl, and she steps up to talk on issues most celebrities would never dare discuss. I also saw no lies, Nicki, Taylor and Miley are all basic as f***, really disappointed in Nicki’s ghetto behaviour on that stage

    • OMG Logic!!! September 2, 2015

      All I see is a pot calling a tea kettle black. Azelia Banks is no less basic than those 3. The difference is that two of those girls have (at least SOME) class.

  5. RihNaj September 2, 2015

    This gurl has so much mouth literally, if only she would use it a lil more in her music! She so Basic with her twitter Trigga fingers. Sighs.

  6. Islandboi80 September 2, 2015

    AB has a lot of mouth but her music is horrible!

  7. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me September 2, 2015

    I feel like if any of these “basics” gave her a call to collab she would jump on it in a heartbeat. The problem is she will never get that call from someone way below Taylor, Miley or Nicki’s caliber because her attitude is worse than terrible.

    • king September 2, 2015

      SO TRUE

  8. Aloys234 September 2, 2015

    Yes, they’re pretty basic, I mean, let’s b real for a second in ur life, Nicki HAD her own audience, but she sold it to entertain the Pop world, Taylor and Miley never f***** with either of them coz they’re simply basic, Azealia although a weak contender, by the sounds of it sticks to her own creativity and isn’t phased by sales.. There’s the love of it then there’s the money.. We can see who’s chasing gold..

  9. Barb-wire September 2, 2015

    BWET sold how much again?? When will this internet warrior channel all that frustration towards her music?? She should have an arena of seats coz ain’t nobody checking for her wack ass except for those downtown NYC girls. Watch them three pays this trash dust.

    • JanStan September 2, 2015

      IF they know who she is…

  10. Question September 2, 2015

    Sam, couldn’t the same be said about you? You take shots at Rihanna, Mariah Carey etc and you, as a blogger, sit at the bottom of the bunch.

    • Kayla C September 2, 2015

      Agreed

    • TheCaller September 2, 2015

      Yaaaas! Preach it. Sam is beyond BASIC

  11. CiMinaj September 2, 2015

    Can you all fix the ads on this site like for real? I’m like two days away from getting all my tea from the shade room. If you aware this is a problem at least make an article to make us aware you’re fixing it! Otherwise do you even read the comments? I’m not the first to complain!

  12. Paulo September 2, 2015

    wasn’t she kissing Nicki’s ass a while back during her Iggy feud? I guess she couldn’t get a feat… she did the same with GaGa. dissapointed, she’s so smart, she should know better… kookoo Gemini b******

  13. Musika September 2, 2015

    Haha Trollzelia Banks is back!! Didn’t expect her to fire at Nicki though

  14. Ron dill September 2, 2015

    Sad to say but Azelia stay popping off just so ppl think she is relevant. She is garbage and trash she’s not a rapper she’s a blogger. #truth

  15. OMG Logic!!! September 2, 2015

    Those 3 have something Azelia Banks never will. A career. Little Miss Sassy better watch her mouth if she’s going to want anyone hiring her to even wash their dishes.

  16. Shonyonce Minaj September 2, 2015

    CHILL AZEALIA IS FIRE AF. Her album is pure fire the singing the rappin the beats and production. I digress tho I love her to death but lordt don’t come for Onika that’s my fav frfr. Nick isn’t basic she knows what sells so she can blend that with what is her own special craft. Idc for Miley or Taylor frfr they have bops tho.

  17. George September 2, 2015

    Azealia Banks you are so totally irrelevant…… Go scrub a floor and let the others sing your carrier is a mess not mentioning the talent that doesn’t exist. Again you are so so irrelevant……

  18. Tony loves them all September 2, 2015

    Please don’t get me wrong, I have love for Ms.Banks but sometimes she just need to shut up. You don’t always have to say whats on your mind. This made her look more desperate for attention than nicki or miley in my opinion.

    None the less i do agree miley’s music is somewhat confusing but Nicki and taylor are surely not basic. They make more money than you boo. Ki

  19. stan September 2, 2015

    i wish she would use all that energy to promote her music, do performances, go on tour… something other than yapping on twitter all the goddamn time.

  20. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 2, 2015

    This dumb attention-seeking b**** haf the nerve to actually talk about Nicki and Taylor out of her neck? Well, go ahead and kiss whstever relevance and career you have left because now your’re officially dead and invisible to the general public. It was nice knowing you and seeing that sold out coachella set though.

    • TrinaAllDay September 2, 2015

      But let’s keep it????. Who is Nicki?????????????Other than a style biter who jacked her swag from other female artist….Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Missy, Eve, Trina, Remy Ma…and believe me the list goes on. That barbie doll s*** is ALL STOLEN! Freakin identity theft!????????

      • yelyah the alternative queen September 2, 2015

        Trina did a nicki tribute though, even though she says she’s the baddest b**** and has been out longer. No comprendé

  21. What now September 2, 2015

    She’s such a try hard 4 attn.

  22. Theman September 2, 2015

    She’s smart but she’s a hypocrite too. People pay her no attention because she has a nasty attitude. Didn’t she say that Nicki was cool or something previously? Taylor actually has some good songs. Miley is full of gimmicks but she has a few good one too. If Azealia’s songs/albums were selling she’d be singing a different tune.

  23. g4l September 2, 2015

    well, she’s not lying.
    Azealia’s album was better than all of these chicks efforts.

  24. TrinaAllDay September 2, 2015

    Yall fans, bloggers, and commentators are some of the MOST 2faced people on earth. Like the girl said, you mfs was all over her d*** a couple months ago. Yall was loving how she tearing down Iggy Azaelia with her racist, stereotypical, and hateful comments. But i guess yall against her now cause she doesn’t wanna kiss Nicki’s Ass? LilKim is Queen of rap, idc what nobody say. Nicki still out here releasing that goofy, bubble gum pop b*******. MileyCyrus is wild but this ain’t nothing new. And she too even knows that Nicki ripped her style from Lil Kim, wtf i guess these h*** dont be doing they research after all.

  25. J-Mar September 2, 2015

    azelia bankruptcy dont have no talk about someone music her hold career is basic wack and garbage no one is taking her seriously as in artist she sound pathetic and bitter u have to sit around a computer just to comment everytime what celebrity does that should she be working on new music this why her and lil kim want get no where when u diss nicki minaj u already ended your career just saying.

    • J-Mar September 2, 2015

  26. Jon September 2, 2015

    Really? Is talking s*** the only thing this c*** knows how to do? If she focused more on her music instead of hating on everyone, maybe her music wouldn’t be so tragic. Girl bye.

  27. Sean September 3, 2015

    I swear, she’s one of the few artists out now who’s actually rock n roll. She’s what the industry used to be like. Unapologetic, authentic. It’s actually refreshing.
