Azealia Banks: Erykah Badu Is An “Old Lady, Childish”
Azealia Banks is pausing her feud with Iggy Azalea to focus her attention on new beef with Erykah Badu. A Twitter back and forth erupted on Saturday between the two after a fan asked Ms. Badu if she listens to Banks’ music. “I tried,” the soul singer responded, leading Banks to get caught up in her feelings.
“When artists grow old and begin to recognize their own mortality they throw shade at younger spirits,” she tweeted. “We see it happen ALL the time. Whether or not you like me, you are WATCHING, and that’s what’s most important.”
Badu, not one to back down from a confrontation, responded with this message:
“Well shit I did try. Maybe you’re right. I’m just too old to get it. You cool tho?”
In that same tweet, Badu revealed her current location which mean took to mean she was inviting her new enemy to discuss their beef in person. The two women never met in person as Banks made clear on Sunday morning in a new round of tweets:
“Lol that old lady went out of her way throw shade at me, turned on her location. But when I asked for the address … there was no answer.”
“I think it was very childish of her to try and insinuate that I should show up and fight her. Like, how old are you?
For the record, Badu is 43.
