However, while most usually side eye and shun her comments, people are hopping on her bandwagon and exhibiting the latter in regards to her comments about Nicki Minaj‘s new Madame Tussauds wax figure.
Minaj’s wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas on August. 4.
“As much as that woman has accomplished, they had to put her on all fours…”
Neither Nicki nor Madame Tussauds has responded to Azealia’s tweets.
Although Banks spoke out in support of Minaj, recognizing both her talent and accomplishments, the pair don’t have the best history. However, in recent statements, Nicki has admitted to finding the praise of her exposed voluptuous figure to be empowering. The tourist attraction features Minaj in a bikini and chains from Minaj’s “Anaconda” music video. “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”, she said.
Minaj is an unapologetic feminist who isn’t afraid to call out sexism in the music industry and assert her own power. The statue recreates a scene from Minaj’s “Anaconda” video, where Minaj is crawling on all fours on top of a table.
Now that her beef with Iggy Azalea over Iggy’s offensive cultural appropriation has died down, Azalea Banks appears to have found a new target: all white people.
But Azealia Banks doesn’t think it’s the right moment to pay a respectful homage to Minaj, tweeting, “Wow, they finally give nicki minaj a wax figure and it’s a statue of her bent over on all fours…” “But all you did was show ur ass, an ass we’ve all seen plenty of times”, Banks wrote.
