Azealia Banks slams Kim Kardashian for entering Kanye-Taylor feud: 'You're f**king his legacy up'
In a series of tweets that questioned Kim's dubious notoriety and relevance to popular culture, Azealia told her in no uncertain terms to leave Taylor Swift alone
Singer Azealia Banks recently launched a scathing series of tweets, accusing TV celebrity Kim Kardashian of trying to stay relevant by grabbing onto the coattails of her hip-hop star husband, Kanye West.
The rapper recently made headlines after it was revealed that his 2016 conversation with Taylor Swift about the song 'Famous' seemingly vindicated Swift's claim that she was never intimated about being called a b***h in Kanye's lyrics.
After the leaked footage went viral, Kim claimed that Swift was lying on social media, in another twist to an already messy celebrity feud. Celebrities like Todrick Hall have been leaping to Taylor's defense, and now Azealia felt the need to chip in with her two cents.
In the wake of this much-publicized story, the '212' singer questioned why Kim felt the need to even wade into the heated feud in the first place, saying "You are just jealous that you don't have any actual talents and NEED to attach yourself to Kanye and Taylor for relevance. That kardashion show is boring now. How did you get involved in the taylor beef anyway? That happened way before you were even in the picture sis."
Continuing her diatribe, Azealia called Kim's maturity into question, saying "All you did was make him [Kanye] look like an obsessive idiot. He's a 40+ black man who has been chastising some random white girl since she was 19. You as a Mother, a wife and a 'beauty mogul' should have suggested he be the bigger person and not even keep bothering her after he already humiliated her onstage. Instead of suggesting he behave like a Father you suggested it was okay to pretty much sexually harass her. What if some weird older man was doing that to north or Chicago [her kids]? You'd be livid."
Azealia then told Kim and Kanye to back off from bullying Swift in no uncertain terms: "Kanye is a father now and really has no reason or right to go around doing that to any women, white or black. Allow Taylor to defend herself from Kanye's bullying and leave her alone please."
She then questioned Kim's contributions to popular culture, saying she was struggling to stay relevant in a world that prefers artistes to celebrities. "You're really f**king his art-whiz legacy up by letting him do it and also CONTINUOUSLY kicking that dead horse. Both Kanye and Taylor have music that will survive them in the afterlife. YOU have not made any eternal contributions to the world. 100 years from now Skims, kkwbeauty and that reality tv show will disappear from humanity's memory."
"You're trying hard to stay attached to a history you will most certainly never be a part of. You're gorgeous but no Marilyn Monroe. No Elizabeth Taylor, no Beyonce." Kim is yet to respond to Azealia's strongly-worded tweet barrage, but we have a feeling this won't be the last we hear of this ongoing fiasco.
