Azealia Banks has slammed the BET Awards as a ‘bogus’ show in which the same people win every year.
Azealia was nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist alongside Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, DeJ Loaf, Tink, and Trina … but this didn’t stop the rapper from blasting the show as ‘a running joke’ on Twitter Monday.
‘I really hate getting nominated for @bet awards. They’re so bogus,’ she wrote. ‘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.’
‘They should just nominate nicki five times with five different wigs on and pick the best picture lol,’ she added.
Aware that her comments will generate a lot of media attention, Azealia tweeted, ‘3,2,1 all the urban media sites gonna run a headline saying I’m throwing shots. Black media is so stupid and pointless. What a sh*tty cycle.’
Nicki Minaj has been winning the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award since 2010 … so you get Azealia’s point. But what do you think about her comment on the BET Awards?
