Azealia Banks is so talented, and she's not wrong when she talks about the way music made by black artists is often ignored or put on the back burner while white artists who appropriate black culture are drowned in money and accolades. But then she says some crazy stuff, for example how she can call people f*ggot because she's bisexual, and I'm all like the cat in this photo:

LOL, wut?! (via Playboy)

In her Playboy interview she does not shy away from how she really feels, saying:

I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma—that's really America.

What are you DOING? It's not crazy to think America is full of racist white people, but this is not speaking truth to power, it's making a broad generalization in a porno mag. If you want to get your MUSIC CAREER going, play the game a little bit, please! Unless the game is making sure you're notorious for turning off people who might buy your album and never putting out any music.

Sparking controversy might be what fills Ms. Banks' coffers at this point, but that seems like a shame when she could be making something great instead:
