Honestly, I was hoping this story would come and go quickly. But, it’s Azealia Banks, and the internet reacts to anything Azealia Banks. So, when Azealia Banks shared yesterday that she would be on the cover of Playboy’s April music issue, the internet gobbled it up.

“Azealia Banks will appear on the cover of Playboy and in a nude pictorial in the April 2015 issue of the magazine. The badass rapper from Harlem poses, according to editors, in a ‘frisky pictorial that’s sure to break the internet.’ In addition to the photo spread, Rob Tannenbaum talks to Banks in a no-holds-barred interview.”

She seemed pretty happy about it, viewing it as a high recognition.

Black Twitter had a field day with the news, of course.

I can’t really say that I want to see Azealia naked. Not because I don’t find her attractive, it’s just that I’m apprehensive about how I’m supposed to react to seeing her naked. If I ogle at the pics and happen to tweet, “Whoa, baby! Look at those cans,” I’m pretty sure that she’ll go on a rant about the images being art, and she’ll ask that people stop objectifying her like a macho pig and things along those lines. That would take all of the fun out of seeing her naked.

Either way, the issue hits stands on March 20. And, I’ll be looking since it’s technically work-related.
