Azealia Banks seems to be making headlines more for her controversial comments than her music, and now she’s taking some action for it. The Harlem native recently raised eyebrows when she admitted she wanting to have sex with President Barack Obama.
“He’s so fine. Those big-ass white teeth and ears hanging off his head? I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I want to f— the president,'” she told Billboard.
Azealia took to her Twitter account to respond to her critics and explain her remarks. “The part about the prez was not supposed to be in there I really wish I could take it back omg I was only joking. Why can’t I just stop being a hot mess? Like just for once ?!?! I always try and keep it cute then something clicks in my brain and just makes me say crazy things #Geministruggle.”
Azealia suggested the comment wouldn’t have caused such a fuss had it been shared within its full context. She’s apparently learned from this experience and will be taking steps to ensure her words aren’t misused again.
