Azealia Banks still pissed off with Disclosure (mainly the ugly one)

Azealia Banks

Remember when Azealia Banks excitedly tweeted that she’d been collaborating with a then very buzzy Disclosure, only for the dance duo to play down their hook up with the rapper, calling it more of a ‘meeting’? Remember that?

Banks then claimed that her no-longer-Disclosure-buddies had subsequently backtracked, admitting their ‘meeting’ was definitely a full on music making meet-up, though she later announced the results of their collusions would not appear on her then still distant album because the boys had been rather “rude” about her in an interview.

Well, anyway, with ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ finally ‘out there’, you might think Banks is now properly getting her revenge by the absence of any Disclosure on there. But no, she’s still pretty miffed about the whole episode. And she’s particularly angry at the ugly little dickheadish one with the pimples around his mouth. Ten bonus points and eternity in hell for anyone who just went, “oh yeah, I know which one she means”.

Asked about the whole thing by The Guardian, Banks says: “I tweeted that I just had the best session with Disclosure, because I was such a fan-girl and I was so excited to have met them. But I guess their thing was: ‘What if the song isn’t that good and you hyped it up?’ But I was like: ‘So fucking what?’ So they tried to be, like, assholes. And the next day they went to the media and they were like, ‘Oh well, I don’t know why she’s so excited, because we haven’t even finished this song or written a hook for it’. I mean, come on!”

She expands: “I want to punch one of them in the face – the little one. The ugly one. I want to hit him so bad. I saw him at the airport in Australia and I came over to him and I was like, ‘Hello? Like, what are we going to do with this song?’ And he was just being a dickhead. I started crying, I was so angry. I wanted to hit him. I cannot stand that little boy with all those pimples around his mouth. I love their music though”.

Oh well, at least she loves their music. And I’m sure they love her music too. Even the ugly little dickheadish one with the pimples around his mouth. And if he’s reading this article, he should go check out Banks’ new video to ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ track ‘Chasing Time’. If he’s in the US at the moment, that is. Otherwise, here’s a music-less teaser.
