Another day, another feud between a 21-year-old rapper and a recently reunited British band from the 1980s. Azealia Banks, who’s no stranger to picking fights with other musicians, and the Stone Roses (who?) both played Australia’s Future Music Festival yesterday, though one performance sounded like it went better than the other. According to Banks, through a string of angry tweets, those “old saggy white n*ggas stone roses” tried to sabotage her set and now she wishes them “nothing but excrement and death,” which, for the record, is a great album title.
And why would the Stone Roses care about Azealia Banks?
“Big apologies on behalf of the stone roses to my fans at the festival today,” she wrote. “My ex tour manager made a pact with the stone roses saying they’d sabotage my set because I fired him and they decided to check their equipment behind me during my set.” (Via)
C’mon, Stone Roses, she’s just trying to be adored.
