Jennifer Hudson and Azealia Banks celebrated gay pride at the 2014 L.A. PRIDE Festival in West Hollywood on Saturday. The ladies performed in the park as part of the weekend-long festivities.
The Harlem rapper slayed the stage in a superhero-inspired outfit and white Air Force Ones, performing hits including “Yung Rapunxel,” “ATM Jam,” “212,” and a cover of Robin S.’ “Show Me Love” as confetti fell from the sky.
“I had such a good time at Pride today! The crowd showed me so much love I couldn’t even take it,” tweeted Banks.
She also apologized for her previous offensive comments. “I sincerely want to apologize to anyone who was hurt by the things I’ve said in the past,” she said. “I won’t go into it but you KNOW what I’m talking about. It wasn’t nice and it wasn’t fair. . . I hope the entire LGBTQ community will forgive me.”
Showing off her svelte figure in a little black dress, J-Hud closed out the evening with a dazzling set. The powerhouse diva—and her scantily-clad male dancers—strut across the stage while belting out “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel),” “Pocketbook,” and “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.”
The ladies of Danity Kane will cap off the festival with a show tonight.
Past PRIDE performers have included Ciara, Lil’ Kim, and Kelly Rowland.
