She's a vocalist…
Azealia Banks recently announced via her Tumblr that she is considering herself a "vocalist" from now on and not a rapper. Billboard reports that Banks also deleted her Twitter account because as she said, it "makes me entirely too accessible."
The Tumbler post reads, "No longer wishing to be a rapper. i never was…. and as soon as i started paying attention to bulls--- urban media, i started getting myself in trouble. From now on i'm a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the "rap game"... or whatever the f--- that means... no more twitter for me... it makes me entirely too accessible. Catch me on tumblr… it'll be more interesting."
Banks got some attention on Twitter last week after she split from Lady Gaga's manager Troy Carter. Carter told Billboard, "I can confirm that I ended the business relationship with Azealia last month on very amicable terms. She's incredibly talented and I wish her nothing short of an amazing career."
For her part, Banks tweeted:
I will definitely be working BY MYSELF and saving MY 20% On management commissions while I avoid you sharks in the water....
I just want a really hardcore woman... Or a really gay man as my manager... You other n----s have WAY too much ego s--- with y'all.
