Azealia Banks Refuses to do Anymore Interviews Following President Comment
Azealia Banks, not one to bite her tongue, recently expressed her very controversial views of the President in a recent interview with Billboard.
When asked to share her thoughts on President Barack Obama, Banks revealed that she finds him attractive and would love to f**k him in the Oval Office if she had the chance.
"He's so fine," she gushed. "Those big-ass white teeth and ears hanging off his head? I'm like, 'Oh my god, I want to f—k the president.'"
Banks also admitted her attraction towards security guards.
"I love security guards. They’re these big meathead bald white guys with blue eyes,”she said about security guards. “I want a really smart man, who has a lot of silly jokes and stuff. I have to tone it down if I want to get that.”
Naturally, Banks’ jokes caused a lot of controversy and backlash on social media prompting the NYC native rapper to clarify her statement.
In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, Banks accused Billboard of taking her words out of context. She also revealed that she would no longer be doing interviews this year.
“This interview was not my favorite. Lots of things I said got taken out of context," she wrote. "This whole interview was mostly about a few raunchy jokes I made…. when I really spoke about so much more. Maybe it was the journalist, maybe it was the editor. Who knows, don’t care. I’m not doing anymore interviews this year.”
Banks also addressed the controversy on Twitter and admitted her regret towards talking about the President that way and described herself as a “hot mess.”
“Why can't I just stop being a hot mess? Like just for once ?!?!” she tweeted, adding, “I said so many other interesting things during that interview. I'm seriously going to start bringing a tape recorder to interviews.”
