ASAP Rocky went on the record as saying that he does not believe that all women should wear red or purple lipstick; basically implying that not all complexions are meant for certain shades of lipstick. Azealia Banks took that as a direct attack against her and responding accordingly by saying that ASAP Rocky needs to come out of the closet.
There is an ongoing feud between Rocky and Azealia and this feud has evolved into a debate over skin complexion of all things. Banks was originally offended by a statement that Rocky made in a previous interview.
“I feel like with the red lipstick thing, it all depends on the pair of complexion,” he said, as noted onHuffington Post. “I’m just being for real. You have to be fair-skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like—fucking for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls cant do… Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the fuck…”
In turn, Banks took to the Twitter airwaves to fire back, and that she did.
Lol @ asap rockys lipstick advice.
Some people should just come out of the closet.
So rocky takes a direct blow to my image about dark skin and purple lipstick, then as soon as I’m a offended …. I’m the bad guy.
That comment was so hurtful. Like hurtful beyond measure. Coming from him especially……
It made me cry. It did.
