Of all her highly publicized beefs (see: Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Q-Tip, Nicki Minaj, etc.), there’s one person it’s pretty safe to say ‘Fancy’ hitmaker Iggy Azalea won’t ever fancy – arch nemesis Azealia Banks. And, just in case she’d forgotten, Iggy Iggz offered a stinging reminder courtesy of her sit down with ‘Elle’ Canada.
As reported here, the Grammy nominated rapstress graced the cover of this month’s issue of the publication and shared an in depth reflection of her controversial 2015. Weighing in on everything from her hip hop backlash to her beef with Papa Johns, it appears few stones were left unturned in the tell-all interview.
Yet, while many readers were glued to her thoughts on hot topics like ‘Black Lives Matters,’ they may have skipped right over her direct comments on her ‘Ice Princess’-performing enemy:
“If I could, I would Men in Black memory-erase 2015, I totally would… I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all,” she said. “We don’t like each other on a personal level, and that has gone on for many years — before the Black Lives Matter incident happened. So when I dismissed her, people started to think that I dismissed the whole movement, but I wasn’t trying to dismiss Black Lives Matter — I was trying to dismiss her because it’s our personal shit. I don’t think the subject matter of her tweet was invalid; I just think it was emotionally charged and driven by something else, and the whole thing got so misconstrued.
Even though I still hate Azealia Banks, I wish I had said it in a way that didn’t make people think I was oblivious to the movement. And I wish I hadn’t gotten into a fight with Papa John’s!”
Banks claps back:
