Azealia Banks Cries Over A$AP Rocky’s ‘Hurtful’ Comment

Azealia Banks and A$AP Rocky

She may seem tough, but Azealia Banks was brought to tears after reading a comment that A$AP Rocky made about dark-skinned women wearing red lipstick.

During an interview about beauty with The Coveteur (via The Huffington Post), the “F**kin’ Problems” rapper shared his thoughts on women’s lipstick.

“I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the pair of complexion. I’m just being for real,” he said. “You have to be fair skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like—f*cking for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls can’t do…Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the f*ck.”

Azealia, who is known for wearing red and purple lipstick, fired back on Twitter. “Lol @ asap rockys lipstick advice,” she tweeted. “Some people should just come out of the closet.”

She returned the next day to share her feelings about his offensive comment. “So rocky takes a direct blow to my image about dark skin and purple lipstick, then as soon as I’m a offended …. I’m the bad guy,” she said. “Typical day in the life of AB.”

She was so upset that she cried. “That comment was so hurtful. Like hurtful beyond measure. Coming from him especially…… It made me cry. It did,” said an emotional Banks.

But she threw in one last jab. “Especially since rocky stole my hair style from the 212 video.”

    @Winston Churchill, dish what out?! That was a stupid ass comment and offensive to dark skinned women!! She has every right to be offended!!

    But granted its not that offensive because its not him saying he dislikes them (a là Wayne, Consequence or Yung Berg) buts its an ignorant and insensitive remark. Dark skin women already get enough shit for their skin tone directly, indirectly and out of ignorance. Your opinions aren’t the truth

    @T, she picks fights with everyone and then cries when something offends her? this has nothing to do with color. it’s all about how she thinks she can diss everyone else and acts like it’s pure evil when others attack her (which a$ap didn’t even do)

    @T, First, he wasn’t targeting her when he said that, she needs to sit. Second, he wasn’t dissing dark skinned girls either. basically saying it all about the shake of your skin when you choose a red lipstick. Darker girls should wear a blue-based red and because they look a mess with a lighter color.

    @lexi, He was targeting her! She is dark skin and wears red and purple lip stick! It’s her right to be offended just like everyone else!

    @lexi, bitch stfu and have many seats. It all depends on how you rock lipstick not your skin color. Just stop talking. Some lightskinned individuals are gorgeous while the other vast majority of you resemble shit. Brown and Dark skinned have a natural glow which y’all light skins have to wait endless hours in the sun for. This whole controversy is stupid and you people need to remember what your mother looks like before talking.

    @Truth!, I don’t see why either of them, or Y’ALL for that matter, are getting upset. Why is Azealia crying over a lipstick interview or whatever the fuck? She shouldn’t give half a fuck about what ASAP Rocky is doing with his self. And As Far As ASAP goes.. Why the fuck is he crying because someone called him gay? What the fuck is this? Elementary School? He needs to grow a pair of balls and get on with his life. Damn, y’all people get butthurt too easily.

    From a female perspective, purple lipstick isn’t attractive on anyone regardless of skin tone. As far as red lipstick, I think it’s the person and not necessarily their skin tone on whether or not they can pull it off.

    Azealia says things far worse to others but she cries over this. Over her…

    @Speechless, because they actually had a friendly relationship… they grew up near each other, asap rocky even said that one of his homeys use to talk to her so she use to be around alot so its much easier to go at someone who you have no relations with opposed to someone you use to be around its more personal

    How is him talking about females & lipstick gay? Some niggas don’t wanna see their chick in certain colors. But Azealia needs to have several seats. A$AP didn’t say your name; he simply expressed his opinion. Just because you happened to fit his description doesn’t mean he cares about what YOU wear. You express you irrelevant, far more stupid comments on Twitter all the time.

    [Reply]

  25. oh

    EVERYDAY THIS BITCH IS TRYNA CREATE SOME DRAMA. why out of all the darked skin female celebs has she got to be the one to comment. it’s like she focuses more on twitter and other people’s shit than her own.

    [Reply]

    Haaaaaa Reply:

    @oh, she commented because shes dark skinned and has worn red lipstich and has her own brand of purple mac lipstick, so shes entitled to respond

ASAP prob should have worded it a lil better, but I know he don’t mean no harm, I mean he dark skin himself. Is she like always on twitter or something?…and like hunny, it’s not that deep…yes u wear those shade of colors, but of you know u beautiful, it shouldn’t matter

    @Winston Churchill, I have to agree as much as i like AB she can be a bit childish at times, so if someone comes at her like she does to others she can’t take it ..hmm that says a lot , with that being said honestly what he said wasn’t offensive at all, as an african american woman you have to be conscious of your cosmetic choices or it will not look good on you, and as for purple lipstick, black white or red it looks good on no one. Idk why this is a big deal its not like he even said it to her. she needs to chill out.

    First off its concidered to be a plum color, and it fits great on dark skinned girls… The red might be to much but azealia banks was rocking the pl color on her 1991 video and she looked stunning! I love her taste in fashion! She is bringing the 90′s back, way before Rihanna and so many other celebs are trying to do! So it’s very fucke up for people to take ASAP rocky comment out of context and add additional comments that sound straight up racist! N ASAP rocky, it’s good to have an opinion but how did it end up on the Internet? Com’on I thought u where a lil” better than that! Luv both artist music thou

    A lot of y’all that responded is missing the point. She is entitled to speak her mind and her opinion. I’m sure everyone that comment has done the same before so stop being hypocrites. He was referring to dark skin women period, he should have said certain colors shouldn’t be worn if it doesn’t look right to that individual not based off skin completion. She took offense to that and I don’t blame her. She spoke up about it and he is dark skin. Some people should think before they speak. He wears kilts and skirts and that is not acceptable. Plus he is dark skin as well. Smh Some people need to stay in school.

    Bright red lipstick doesn’t look nice on any complexion, you should go with a dark red. That’s what he should have said, and red lipstick actually looks worse on pale people…doesn’t mesh well with their skin tone, makes them look retarded, like try-hards. The mistake he made was only targeting dark skinned women instead of women in general.
