Azealia Banks is so pissed off following her war of words with Nick Cannon over the weekend, she’s pressing pause on releasing her new album Fantasea II.
The singer went in on the Wild ‘n Out host for allegedly making an offensive joke while they filmed a segment of his show Saturday. The episode has not yet aired.
Banks said she was canceling her album because of the apparent bad blood she had with Cannon, even though he seemingly wasn’t involved in her new music. “I need some time to relax and bounce on d***. I’ll release new music when I feel like it,” Banks said on her Instagram Story Sunday.
She then took direct shots at Cannon, making fun of him for suffering from lupus. Banks’ story read, “I wonder if Nick Cannon will do the next season of ‘Wild ‘n Out’ with a colostomy bag. I wonder if the colostomy bag will have the ‘Wild ‘n Out’ logo on it.”
She continued: “If I were to make fun of nick cannon for having lupus and being weak and sickly………if I made a joke that he’d be dead by the end of the year……..The Azealia Banks is the bad guy….Right?”
Cannon wasted no time clapping back saying: “Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella??? We are praying for your queen #speedyrecovery”
Banks shot back: “Nick Cannon, you don’t have to pray for me. Pray for your f***ing immune system,” she said.
According to Banks while she was on the show to just promote her album and sing one song, the cast threw her into a round of games unexpectedly and began calling her names and used the term ugly which had her in tears.
I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course …. cry baby cried. Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this – hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home. I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage . Yemaya …..
When asked by a fan, in the comments, why she didn’t “go off” when she’s known for doing so on social media Banks claimed that she wanted to respond to the insults, but was too concerned about “the people from Viacom” that were present at the taping.
It is pretty odd considering she’s become known for slamming other artist particularly women (Cardi B Iggy Azalia, Nicki Minaj to name a few) calling them everything from monkey to coon.
Could it be she can dish it, but just can’t take it?
