EARLIER:

“I’m seriously tired of peoples feelings.”

Same.

Azealia Banks has had a rocky relationship with the Internet from the start, and she’s over it. “For good,” she warns.

She’s had a turbulent couple years in the press, and the “Ice Princess” is exhausted. Earlier this summer, Azealia posted several messages on Facebook this week announcing her abrupt plans to rethink her path to stardom. Rap isn’t her thing, but it pays the bills. Ah, the trap millions of us have fallen into, including us journalists she lambastes. Now, Banks is taking it a step further by declaring her departure from social media.

“I’m seriously tired of peoples feelings. I’m tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything,” she wrote. “I’m tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I’m tired of being told how I should be behaving.”

She added: “I’m quitting Facebook, and any other form of social media that allows me to engage with people. My legacy can’t live and die on the Internet.
Goodbye.
For good.”




The declaration follows her suspension from Twitter after a slew of racial slurs.
