US Rapper Azealia Banks tells Perez Hilton he’s a ‘messy faggot’ who should kill himself

US Rapper Azealia Banks tells Perez Hilton he’s a ‘messy faggot’ who should kill himself

by James Park, 5 January 2013, 11:29am

US rapper Azealia Banks has defended calling the US entertainment blogger Perez Hilton a faggot during a Twitter argument.

The argument began after Hilton posted a criticism of Banks’s feuds with other artists. She then called him “dickbreath” and told him to “gobble a dick”.

Hilton told Banks, who last year said she was bisexual: “Some of your music is cute, but your attention-seeking ways are pathetic and hurtful. You drag while others choose to uplift!”

Banks responded: “Whatever bitch, you tried to sign me to ur little bum ass label in ’11 with them bullsshit ass artists…” She later tweeted: “omg u should just kill yourself… Like for real… lol what a messy faggot you are.”

After followers reacted badly to her posts, Banks responded by claiming: “A faggot is not a homosexual male. A faggot is any male who acts like a female. There’s a BIG difference.”

She later clarified “When I said acts like I female I should’ve said acts like a c*nt.”

She added: “If u listen to my music and are not offended by the word nigga… We’re not gonna go here with this faggot shitt… We’re just not. Lol.”

Last year the rapper told the New York Times that she is bisexual adding: “I’m not trying to be, like, the bisexual, lesbian rapper. I don’t live on other people’s terms.”

Banks is signed to Polydor, part of Universal Music Group. Despite her relatively modest profile in the UK, the BBC ranked her third in its ‘Sounds of 2012 Awards’.

Another Z-list, faux-bisexual whore a la Paris Hilton calling gay men faggots. What's new?

That's why gay men need to be careful before they support their little female "gay icons" (not that this unknown bitch was ever anything).

Perez called one of the Black Eyed Peas the same thing. So he can't really complain can he? Live by the sword, die by the sword. At least this got people talking about him again. He hasn't been relevant for 5 years.

I wonder how her arch-rival, the openly bisexual and very gay friendly Angel Haze, will respond to this? She herself just released a single allegedly dissing Banks.

I also wonder how many of the blogosphere hipster fanbois who have been pushing Banks for the last two years will react to this faux pas?

Both of these Z-list nobodies should just go away. Hell, they probably arranged this "fued" themselves for publicity since he's a has-been and she's an unknown.

r5 and r18 are both revisionist history, hardly anyone has been more hated on DL than Perez. Some hated him for outing celebs, but I think most of the hostility was because he was fat, ugly and femme, and considered a bad image for gays.

I like her music, and calling Perez a messy faggot doesn't immediately get my undies in a bunch.

I have problems with her explanations, though. Truly queer friendly people don't use a "man acting as a woman" as a pejorative, but she's done exactly that.

She should have just STFU after the first comment and been all, like, "Perez Hilton. Enough said."

R12 / R18 appears to be an angry, misandrist lesbian and if you're bored enough to troll-dar her, you can follow her little trail around the forum and see her other little gems.

If Perez would start lecturing me I'd be like 'Who are you and why do you think I care what you have to say?', but I guess that attitude wouldn't get Azealia the media attention that she has now with her messy faggot line.

The media reports scandalous soundbites.

by Anonymousreply 3201/05/2013

Calling people mean names is wrong, but neither Perez Hilton nor many people on DL have the moral authority to be indignant about other people doing it. It is not so nice to call people fraus, fundies, retarded, trash, mouthbreathers, hicks, gaylings, nutjobs, ugly, or men by female pronouns, but some of you do these awful things. Perhaps, you should clean up your own conduct before trying to call other people out.

Sorry R35

You lose credibility on your anger that she used the word Faggot by calling her a cunt and a black whore slut.

Two unlikeable nobodies. The rapper's comments are vile, and Perez's history follows him. The endless making fun of everyone, calling will.i.am the same derogative term (and then crying about it and justifying it). Perez had a short-lived series in the UK called "Perez Hilton Superfan" that did horribly in the ratings. The Lady Gaga episode was him fawning all over her.

Is Perez Hilton racist?

by Anonymousreply 4001/05/2013

Twitter has absolutely ruined the mystique of celebrity. I love some of Banks stuff. Edgy, strange; she seemed so smart in the small sample of work that I've heard from her. Now I know she's just a run of the mill, uneducated girl that speak like my 18 year old nephew and his douchey friends.

That said, if she'd just called Perez and irrelevant hypocrite asshole, I'd have been fine with it...

by Anonymousreply 4201/05/2013

Perez shouldn't of called will I am a faggot either, but like the blacks say ITs OK to use the N word if you're black, but no white person should be using it!

Lady Gaga is supposedly working with her. She's another fake bitch, she'll probably not even acknowledge it, despite being against gay bullying!

Gay men need other strong, masculine gay men to look up to.

Not these fake bisexual girls, because their struggle is nothing like ours.

A lot of these "pro-gay" female acts are posers and are inherently homophobic, however their true colors won't show until they're pissed and speak or type before they think. Even Gaga's "acceptance" of young gays is patronizing at best and specious at worst.

by Anonymousreply 5301/05/2013

There needs to be a clear, cut-off point between gay men (who have it the the worst in the homophobia department) and "bisexual girls" (seemingly 3/4 of whom are really just attention-whoring skanks who want to titillate straight guys or be "edgy" and "trendy").

These wenches seem to have an ON/OFF switch that they use at their whim for A). when they decide to use LGBT solidarity to their benefit or B). when they show their true colors and act worse than any straight, homophobic douche.

My boyfriend used to volunteer at a gay youth group meeting every week, and he would tell me how these "bisexual"/"pansexual"/whatever girls would monopolize resources and discussions, talking about how "hard" it is to be bisexual and in general make everything all about themselves; all the while, young gay boys and butch lesbian girls (the groups who were REALLY having it hard) were being ignored or marginalized again.

Well sorry bisexual girls, you are NOT in the same league and shouldn't be treated as such!

I've actually had one woman make her boyfriend (one of my best buds) stop hanging out and going to the gym with me because he told her I was gay.

No lie The dude is straight as an arrow and I has a boyfriend but she thought he might suddenly go gay with me!

Despite the fact that he met me before her and I had hung out with the girslfriend (friendshipwho tried to hook me up with one of her female friends).

So much for male bonding and strong male friendships.

Some of you are unreal. This isn't some random slur against a random gay man, it's an attack on one of the leaders in gay culture. Why any of you would side with Azealia Banks instead of Perez Hilton just shows your self loathing. Perez Hilton works for the good of the gay community and Azealia is attacking it.

Another no-talent rapper that I've never heard of...NEXT!

by Anonymousreply 8501/06/2013

From PinkNews.co.uk:

[quote]New reports have suggested that US Rapper, Azealia Banks, has been dropped by her record label following a Twitter arugment with blogger, Perez Hilton, during which she called him a “messy faggot”, and suggested that he should “kill himself”.

Website Gossipwelove.com, reports that it received an email claiming that the rap star had parted ways with her record label Interscope. The email reads:

“When approached today about Banks’ debut album plans, the label insider simply stated, Azealia Banks will no longer be releasing her LP under Interscope.”

“Broke with Expensive Taste, was scheduled to be released in February so perhaps this clarifies the lack of promotion and official releases for a debut album that was supposed to drop within weeks.”

The news is unconfirmed, however, and Ms Banks or her label has issued no comment on the matter. She continued to Tweet links to her music, and last night seemed to have apologised for offence caused. She tweeted:

“My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language. Not sorry for Perez tho. Lo.”

The argument with Perez Hilton began after Hilton posted a criticism of Banks’s feuds with other artists. She then called him “dickbreath” and told him to “gobble a dick”.

Hilton told Banks, who last year said she was bisexual: “Some of your music is cute, but your attention-seeking ways are pathetic and hurtful. You drag while others choose to uplift!”

Banks responded: “Whatever bitch, you tried to sign me to ur little bum ass label in ’11 with them bullsshit ass artists…” She later tweeted: “omg u should just kill yourself… Like for real… lol what a messy faggot you are.”

After followers reacted badly to her posts, Banks responded by claiming: “A faggot is not a homosexual male. A faggot is any male who acts like a female. There’s a BIG difference.”

She later clarified “When I said acts like I female I should’ve said acts like a c*nt.”

GLAAD wrote on its website: “Banks’ claims that the word ‘fa*got’ doesn’t mean a gay male is not true.

“Regardless of her intent or her personal definition, what matters is the meaning given to that word by those who hear it, and the damage it causes when they do. Undoubtedly there are gay kids who follow her on Twitter who hear this word in an entirely different context.

“This word is used almost universally by bullies, often as part of a larger verbal or physical assault. This word hurts those kids, no matter what Banks meant by it.”

Scissor Sisters singer, Jake Shears Tweeted the rapper, condemning her use of the word “faggot”. He wrote:

“Oh yeah. “Faggot.” Totally cool. Give me a fucking break… It all about context. And right now I’m sorry, but context is not on your side.”

Banks is signed to Polydor, part of Universal Music Group. Despite her relatively modest profile in the UK, the BBC ranked her third in its ‘Sounds of 2012 Awards’.
