There are some comments that are just too shocking, even if it comes from Azealia Banks.
The outspoken rapper graces the latest cover of Billboard and as expected, came out with some really juicy one-liners in the accompanying interview where she revealed her sexual conquests and fantasies.
The singer-songwriter confessed to sleeping with her security guards and to having sex with her female friends.
“It’s a proximity thing,” Banks said. “It’s why I am going to call my next record ‘Business and Pleasure,’ because I’m always mixing the two.
But that confession wasn’t nearly as shocking as her answers to the inevitable political questions. And Banks had a lot, maybe even too much, to say about POTUS.

“He’s so fine. Those big-ass white teeth and ears hanging off his head?” she described the president before adding “Oh my god, I want to f*** the president.”That comment didn’t fly so well with readers and shocked even those who were already expecting something outrageous from her. The firestorm that erupted on social media over her statement wasn’t surprising, but Banks backtracking is.
While she’s normally defensive and would stand by her other comments, the Harlem-raised rapper actually expressed regret over her comments on President Obama. “Omg I was totally just joking and being silly in billboard about the prez I wasn’t actually being forreal,” Banks tweeted on Friday. “I really wish I could take it back. #Geministruggle.”

The rapper is already known for her eyebrow-raising comments. Just recently she was embroiled in another controversy when she was quoted as saying that she hates everything about America.
“I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans,” she said in her Playboy interview. “All the people who are crunched in the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms,” she further expounded.
