Azealia Banks claims she’s getting a raw deal from her promoters and she unleashed her misplaced anger on her fans during a Pride performance in Miami.
Azealia was onstage at the Wynwood Pride concert this weekend and was VERY over being there. The controversial rapper, who performed with her bosoms out, went on a tirade about her promoters jerking her around about her set times and whether she was the headliner.
She told the crowd, “I’m really not happy to be here.” admitting that she knew it wasn’t the fans’ fault … but she really wanted off that stage. She said, “I’m trying y’all, but it’s difficult.”
Concert promoters didn’t take it well so when, Azealia started complaining again by saying, “I really don’t wanna f***ing be here” and someone cut off her mic.
That fueled her anger so she pulled a spot-on mic drop … and left the stage in a huff.
Azealia was only 4 songs in at that point, and the crowd grew restless and started booing when they realized she wasn’t coming back.
Azealia was already an odd pick to headline the event … considering she’s come under fire from the LGBTQ+ community in the past when she called HIV/AIDS patients sex addicts and made a homophobic slur toward a flight attendant.
Regardless, she’s always had a lot of gay fans who’ve stuck with her and they probably weren’t thrilled with her less than 30-minute set. Happy Pride?
