Azealia Banks is not being dropped from Interscope despite the rumors to that affect after her use of an anti-gay slur on Twitter directed at blogger Perez Hilton, reports Clash.
Here’s how they say things ultimately got ugly:
The past week has been a dramatic time for Azealia Banks. Even by her own standards, a Twitter row with Angel Haze found the singer enduring enormous press attention with media outlets clearly relishing two high profile newcomers locking horns.
However Perez Hilton’s intervention took the row in the new direction. Intervening, the blogger earned the wrath of Azealia Banks who called Hilton a “messy faggot” sparking an enormous online furor.
Azealia’s initial attempts to justify the use of the term by saying it not just about homosexuality might actually have some twisted logic and merit. This is, after all, a generation that is not hesitant to call a man a “bitch”, label a lame attempt “gay” or non-blacks “nigga”, but not everyone was buying it, especially not the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) who considered her explanation…well, gay.
