Azealia Banks Slams the BET Awards and Nicki Minaj
Azealia Banks is back at it again and this time she’s throwing shots at the BET Awards and Nicki Minaj.
Azealia—who is known for her social media feuds with an array of different artists—took to Twitter on Monday, May 18 to share her very negative views about BET, the upcoming BET awards, and Nicki Minaj.
Though Azealia has been nominated for the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist category for this year’s BET awards, she still wasn’t pleased with her nomination and let the whole world know about it.
Azealia described the BET awards as “bogus” and went on to predict that Nicki would win over her since BET reportedly favors Nicki.
“The female rap award at the bet awards goes to nicki every year, it's not even a real award anymore lol it's a bit of a running joke,” Azealia wrote, adding, “They should just nominate nicki five times with five different wigs on and pick the best picture lol.”
After slamming the BET awards, Azealia then took aim at Nicki’s fans who call themselves “barbz.”
“*hears barbz buzzing in the distance* *rolls up car windows* *sound of little barb heads slamming into glass* *unconscious barbs on floor*” she wrote. “*turns up random nicki Minaj verse* *puts car in reverse* *backs up over barbs* *blood splatters* *puts car in drive and takes off*.”
Though it does appear that Nicki is a favorite over at BET—-she’s won the Best Female Hip-Hop artist category for five consecutive years since 2010—-Azealia may have had a shot…
Until now that is.
We agree that it would be nice to see another female rap artist win the award this year but it’s safe to say that Azealia has lost her shot.
It’s unfortunate that there’s such negativity when both of these women are talented and should embrace the other’s talent.
