Azealia Banks starts the new year on an energetic note with her new single, 'BBD,' which stands for "Bad B----es Doit." The song is not from her upcoming album, 'Broke With Expensive Taste,' but it's a preview of things to come from the Harlem rapper.
Leave it to "It" girl rapper Azealia Banks to make some polarizing and inflammatory comments about her status as a fashion darling and her future as a rapper, all before her debut 'Broke With Expensive Taste' even lands. Banks is nothing if not a cultural lightning rod, and she's already slammed the fashion industry, which embraced her on the quick, and put an expiration date on rapping.
Azealia Banks is one artist who never bites her tongue especially on Twitter. The '212' rapper made a startling claim on her timeline that Coldplay's manager, Dave Holmes, who has been rumored to be her boyfriend, has been repeatedly abusing her.
While some of the artists nominated in our Best New Artist category have been around for a few years, they made their big breaks into the mainstream pop scene in 2012. Sharp-tongued rapper Azealia Banks, spunky British songstress Cher Lloyd, silky smooth crooner Frank Ocean and Jay-Z protégé Rita Ora are some of the entertainers in the running for the 2012 PopCrush Music Award for Best New Artist, with a few other contenders as well.
Azealia Banks is stunning without much help, but she knows how to turn it out when she needs to. The '212' rapper revealed her secrets to her high fashion yet streetwise style in a new clip for ASOS. What's her biggest trick?
Creators and fans of the visual aesthetic known by some as seapunk are speaking out against Rihanna and Azealia Banks, whom they say ripped off the fashion and design trend during recent performances and music videos.
Azealia Banks may be more famous for her stunning good looks than for her music (which is actually great) -- and she doesn't seem to mind. The New York native struts, writhes and grinds her stuff in her new 'Fierce' video for ASOS.
Azealia Banks has quite a relationship with fashion. Her unique look has earned praise from fashionistas, and over the summer, she was anointed the face of Alexander Wang's T diffusion line. She also had her very own shade of limited edition lipstick from MAC. Now, the outspoken rapper, known for her Twitter tiffs with other artists, has turned her rage to Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, accusing the designers of racism.
