Azealia Banks Gets Naked For Playboy; Says Controversial Things In Interview

By HHL Editors

Azealia Banks likes to say controversial things. If one were to be charitable they'd say that's just how her mind works. If one were to be less charitable they'd say she's a troll who does it to get attention.

Getting naked is another good way to get attention, and Banks will be covering the April edition of Playboy. But just because she's showing all of her goods, it doesn't mean she won't be saying controversial things, too. Here a few excerpts from her interview with the skin mag.

Do you want to leave the U.S.? Yes! I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma—that’s really America. Were you at all hesitant about posing for Playboy? No, I love getting naked. It’s so funny, every time my manager arranges a photo shoot, I’m like, “Let’s do a nude photo!” And everyone’s like, “Oh, Azealia, you’re always trying to bring your butt out.” Posing for Playboy was a no-brainer. I was like, “Yes! They want to see me naked.” You said black people aren't supposed to be Christians. What religion do you identify with? I don’t want to say, but I’ll tell you about one form of the religion. It’s called 21 Divisions. When they brought the slaves over to the Caribbean, they synchronized all their African gods with Catholic saints. So in 21 Divisions there are black gods and goddesses, and my mother practiced that when I was little. Whenever problems happened, we turned to 21 Divisions to fix it. It’s funny, because my friends on the block in Harlem, their mothers would be like, “Oh, you fucking with that witchcraft. You working roots.” You can cleanse people with root work or do bad things to them. But 21 Divisions is celestial.
