Azealia Banks playing pussy in Playboy.
Azealia, the smart and fearless Hip-Hop Queen from Harlem, is as non-fenced as the feline she´s playing in this dazzling folio from the first lady of fine fetish photography, Ellen Von Unwerth. The freedom-loving lady refuses major contracts for her music and often expressed her dissatisfaction being labeled on her sexual orientation.
“I’m not trying to be, like, the bisexual, lesbian rapper. I don’t live on other people’s terms.”
No, I love getting naked. It’s so funny, every time my manager arranges a photo shoot, I’m like, “Let’s do a nude photo!” And everyone’s like, “Oh, Azealia, you’re always trying to bring your butt out.” Posing for Playboy was a no-brainer. I was like, “Yes! They want to see me naked.”
Yung Rapunxel, as she calls herself, takes up the cudgels for black culture, speaking out on African-American civil rights issues and generally for the right to be whatever you want to be. All with a mischievous laugh and smile so bright you have to wear shades.
A lot of times when you’re a black woman and you’re proud, that’s why people don’t like you. In American society, the game is to be a nonthreatening black person.
I want to date whoever I want to date. I want to smoke weed. I want to get drunk. I want to go on vacation, you know?
