Azealia Banks branded Beyonce as an anti- feminist because of her newest album “Lemonade.” She also called her stupid for staying in a relationship where she’s constantly cheated on.
Rapper Azealia Banks claimed that Beyonce’s new album i sending the wrong message and that it is the “antithesis of feminism.” According to Mirror, she took to Twitter to slam the artist and said, “This heartbroken black female narrative you keep trying to push is the Antithesis of what feminism is.”
She began her twitter- rant by referring, “Just six months ago you told every black girl in the industry to ‘bow down’ now you want to stick up for black folk lol.” She then tweeted that she has not yet heard the “Formation” singer’s side on the issue.
Then she also ranted about how expensive the upcoming “Formation” tour is. “She made a song about big noses and hot sauce then put up a tour charging $1300 to ppl she knows damn sure can’t afford that.”
“Queens are supposed to lead, they don’t step on the spirits of the girls who come after them then to just try and take that same spirit,” she continued on Twitter.
She also tweeted that Queen Bey has been singing about her husband for so long and yet the cheating seemed to have not stop! To stay in that relationship for Banks is “stupidity.” Her twitter- rant goes on as she said that the songs Beyonce had put out are not something black women needed.
“You keep crying over a man and perpetuating that sad black female sufferance and it’s Not good for what we’re trying to accomplish here,” Banks said.
Weirdly, after all that has been said about Jay-Z and Beyonce’s failing relationship as exemplified by the lyrics of the songs included in “Lemonade,” it is still unclear if Beyonce and Jay-Z are really going through something or it’s all in people’s head. The artist recently lauched her “Formation” tour and described Jay-Z as “her beautiful husband,” as reported by People magazine. What will Banks say to this?!
