”I’m So Full of Sh*t”
Azealia Banks looks like she may be re-thinking all of those Twitterfeuds she’s become famous for. The notoriously brash rapper returned to Twitter this week, but showed a slightly more pensive side when discussing her online persona.
“Ugh, I’m like the nosiest person ever. I like CANNOT mind my business. . . . I love people too much.,” she tweeted. “And I love talking. And hearing what people think.”
“Trust that my intentions are always good. I’m just really aggressive. ” she continued. “Aggressive because I care.”
“I need to be more Assertive and less Aggressive,” Banks pondered.
“Sike, I don really give a f*ck,” she tweeted later. “I’m so full of sh*t”
“I’m so full of sh*t my eyes are brown.”

While “Blurred Lines” hits No. 1 on iTunes following his appearance on “The Voice,” Robin Thicke is readying a new single. On May 28, the R&B heartthrob will release “4 the Rest of My Life” to iTunes. Judging from the gold handcuffs on the artwork, we expect to hear a more romantic Robin.

Rapper Shares Bathing Suit Shots On Instagram
Azealia Banks may have decided to give up tweeting, but she’s still making her social media presence felt.
Banks became infamous over the past few months for going off on other celebrities on Twitter, so she turned over her account password to her management and vowed to put the popular platform behind her. Nonetheless, the outspoken Harlemite is using Instagram to generate her latest bit of buzz.
The femcee posted sexy pics of herself on the site, wearing a onesie bathing suit that leaves almost nothing to the imagination.
The girl does know how to get your attention, doesn’t she?
Although there are doubts about how true it is, Azealia Banks recently handed over the keys to her Twitter account over to her record label. While we will surely miss her sometimes reckless Twitter slander, she’s still holding down her Instagram.
You can learn a lot from a person’s Instagram account. In the Harlem rapper/vocalist’s case, we get an interesting perspective into what makes the fiery artist tick. Whether it’s selfies, photos of her hair and nails, or the occasional pics with a celeb, there is clearly way more to the “Yung Rapunxel” artist than a social media sh-t talker.
Banks’ proper debut, Broke With Expensive Taste, is due out this summer. Check 10 Things We Learned About Azealia Banks From Her Instagram in the gallery below.

Azealia Banks SMARTENS UP About TWITTER & Hands That Account Over To Her Label + Beyonce’s “INSANE” Tour Rider REVEALED…But Are We Mad About What’s On It?
Despite dropping the "Yung Rapunxel" video a few weeks ago, rapper Azealia Banks has been suspiciously silent. Find out why she’s been off social media inside and see some of Beyonce’s crazy demands for her "The Mrs. Carter Show" World Tour rider.
There was a time when we’d hear about controversial rapper Azealia Banks beefing with someone at least once a month. From Iggy Azelea and T.I., to Angel Haze and A$AP Rocky, Young Rapunxel was never at a loss for words…until now.
Though the “Liquorice” rapper dazzled on the blue carpet for the Ferragamo "Launch Of L’Icona" this week (shown above), fans will notice that there have been very few tweets from the rapper. We’ve now discovered that she’s taken a page from Chris Brown’s public relations playbook and turned over her Twitter account to her record label. And in addition to the silence, her debut abum, Broke With Expensive Taste, has been pushed back again.
The fiesty rapper has been in the studio with Frank Ocean’s producer Om’Mas Keith. “I was very pleased to find out that she was an amazing artist, an artist’s artist,” Keith told Rap-Up TV. “The stuff that I worked on is very refreshing and creative.”
Maybe now…she’ll have time to focus on creating a hit album and not stirring up trouble.
And in other music news….
If you plan on booking Beyonce & her Mrs. Carter Show, get ready for a list of demands fit for a queen. Thanks to Australia’s newspaper, The Telegraph, we’ve been clued in on a few of Queen Bey’s demands, which some critics are calling "insane." But if you’ve ever seen Mrs. Carter live, we think she deserves WHATEVER she wants. So far, we’ve learned she’s demanding the most. And we kinda love it.
- 0 worth of titanium drinking straws for her dressing rooms (used to drink a special alkaline water that’s served at exactly 21 degrees!)
- Everyone in the crew must be dressed in clothes made of 100% pure cotton (to prevent her from having an allergic reaction)
- The dressing room must be painted off-white
- Every toilet seat (in each venue) must be brand new
- Bathrooms are stocked only with red toilet paper
- A hand-carved ice-ball (to cool her throat after performances)
- Glass platters of almonds, oatcakes and green-only crudités (no junk food allowed)
And for her 2013 performance at the Super Bowl, she supposedly demanded Blue Ivy’s ,000 cedar crib be shipped from New York to New Orleans, and her personal dressing room be stocked with ,000 worth of imported cigars and alcohol for Jay-Z.
The source defended Bey’s demands saying,
"She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered too and every detail be taken in. Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan."
AGAIN….whatever Beyonce wants….Beyonce should get. And everyone will deal….
People have their respective paths. It’s the “Life We Chose,” according to Mobb Deep’s own Havoc, who provides a video for the unapologetic jam. Lloyd Banks joins his Queens brethren on the track, and makes a rare appearance in the visual.
“Life We Chose” will appear on Havoc’s forthcoming LP 13, releasing May 14. See the treatment for one of the hardest records out below.
Azealia Banks stepped out in style to the launch of Salvatore Ferragamo’s L’Icona leatherwear at The McKittrick Hotel in New York City last night. The fashion darling rocked red hair and eyebrows that matched her pants and shoes while posing against the floral backdrop.
The controversial rapper, who made headlines for her Twitter beefs, has been quiet on social media lately. She deleted the majority of her tweets and said that she will be handing over her account to her label.
Azealia’s debut Broke with Expensive Taste is still awaiting a release date. She has been in the studio with Frank Ocean producer Om’Mas Keith. “I was very pleased to find out that she was an amazing artist, an artist’s artist,” Keith told Rap-Up TV. “The stuff that I worked on is very refreshing and creative.”
