Azealia Banks is back in the news again. This time after she bared all for Instagram.
In support of his recent single “Escapades”, the New York rapper did a photoshoot shedding all her clothing, with different artistic iterations of the photo. While its likely been screenshotted hundreds of times, she’s since deleted the photos (main ones anyway).
In the caption, Banks explained the inspiration behind the photos:
“When I was a little girl I remember the women in my family having such large pubic bushes and always thinking it was some sort of strange/cool. When I was making #escapades I was pulling from all of my mothers references – Shanice, Donna summer, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, Rachelle Ferrell- and she would always walk around the house naked doing her chores belting at the top of her lungs. We would make the joke that women coming of age in the 70’s had a roller skating bush ! Ironically – I wrote most of this song in the same fashion … walking round the house doing my chores and growing out my 1970’s roller skating bush.”
As mentioned, Banks advised fans to screenshot the photo, because she had every intention of deleting it later.
