Azealia Banks is known for her feuds as much as she’s known for her music. Over the years she’s fought with Elon Musk, all the Irish, gay flight attendants and even RuPaul.
This week the Trump supporting hip hop star got into it with drag queens again when she called out a local queen, Bambi Banks-Coulée as stupid for dressing up as the X-Men’s Storm. Azealia went on to say that drag race is “raising a generation of materialistic money spenders” and that “homosexuality does not equal talent.”
Today comedian Matt Brown joins us to unpack Azealia Bank’s scalding criticism of drag culture, RuPaul’s Drag Race and LGBTQI+ art. Does Azaelia have a point regarding drag’s new commercialism or is she just looking for a fight for just a little publici-she?
