Azealia Banks Featured In "Elle" Magazines Women in Music 2012
Azealia Banks has landed in "Elle's" Women in Music 2012 alongside Lana Del Rey, Santigold, Kelly Clarkson and Shirley Manson of rock band Garbage. In the photo spread, the London based Harlem native talks about her hot song "212," which she released via YouTube last September, how she responds to the haters and her thoughts on fashion and beauty.
"'212' is arrogant and fashion is arrogant," Banks says. "Selling beauty means convincing people that you have something they want."
As for how she answers to criticisms about how she got her DIY shot at stardom: "People say, 'You just got famous on YouTube.’ I’m like, 'So? You didn’t get famous anywhere.'"
