New Azealia Banks beef just dropped. This time around, the "212" hitmaker is taking issue with British indie rocker Matty Healy, who's been the subject of scrutiny over the past few weeks after making troubling comments about Ice Spice on a podcast. He offered up an awkward apology to the New Yorker last month, but during a more recent interview, made it abundantly clear that he feels little to no remorse for his actions. "It doesn't actually matter," he said of the controversy, causing more backlash to fly his way.
Among those lashing out at the "Girls" hitmaker is Banks, who used her Instagram Story to call him out in a lengthy rant on Tuesday (May 30). "Does Matty Healy know that no one actually thinks The 1975 makes good music?" she asked her followers. "And that he's a lame poser with a trash cliche band name that actually means nothing. He's clearly so pressed about a Black girl who knows nothing about him or his music is making more moves and money than him," the embattled rap diva wrote. "Does he know that Black women are more coveted [in] today's industry because there's BIG BUSINESS in female rap?"
Azealia Banks Lashes Out at Matty Healy
"He is so obviously weak in the knees, thin-jawed, and drug addicted that it's easy to catch his crusty ass lackin'," Banks further alleged. In her next paragraph, she trashed The 1975's name and image entirely. "You're not a star, nor are you good at whatever this crappy ass mid-2000's indie pitchfork darling fantasy you're trying to see," the 31-year-old dissed Healy.
"Ice Spice has MILES more originality than you will ever. The 1975 is on nobody's radar babe, maybe fat emo teenagers but no we are not checkin' for you boo." On the next slides, the Harlem native claimed that the English artist is "one shared needle away from tetanus." Afterward, she advised his rumoured new girlfriend, Taylor Swift, to avoid the "full incel" at all costs.
