Azealia Banks: Black urban media is so stupid and pointless

OUTSPOKEN: Azealia Banks always has something to say

US RAPPER Azealia Banks has branded black media as "stupid and pointless".

Banks made the claims on Twitter after she threw shots at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.

Just leave it to Banks to take getting nominated for a BET Award as a reason for a tirade of abuse.

The outspoken rapper took to Twitter to criticise the BET Awards and its Best Female Hip Hop Artist category.

The problem, for Banks, is that fellow rapper Nicki Minaj has won the title five years in a row.

“I really hate getting nominated for @bet awards. They’re so bogus,” tweeted Banks on Monday morning (May 18).

“The female rap award at the BET awards goes to Nicki every year, it’s not even a real award anymore lol it’s a bit of a running joke.”

Banks also went on to be critical of “urban” and “black” media for inevitably covering her struggle.

“3,2,1 all the urban media sites gonna run a headline saying I’m throwing shots,” she wrote.

“Black media is so stupid and pointless. What a sh*tty cycle.”
