Azealia Banks appears to have reignited her beef with Lana Del Rey by posting a series of Instagram stories criticising Del Rey’s appearance.
Throughout the since-expired stories, Banks is seen mocking Del Rey over her physical appearance in a recent paparazzi photo.
In the photo reposted by Banks, Del Rey is shown running errands in casual attire with her arm in a sling due to an ice staking incident.
After sharing the photo to her story, Banks recorded herself singing ‘Brick House’ by The Commodores.
“She’s a brick house,” she sang, “who’s a big bitch.”
Banks continued on to advise Del Rey to watch what she eats, saying she needs to “stay out of 7-Eleven”.
“Lana you lookin’ like the fucking hamburger, you need to stay out that 7-Eleven sis,” she said, “stop shoving that cheeseburger down your throat.”
Continuing with the rant, Banks urged someone to “get this bitch a waist trainer.”
“Tie this bitch in a knot, do whatever you gotta do, get her to stop eating please,” she said.
Given the, ah, intensity of Banks’ comments, it’s a little hard to imagine what could have prompted such an extreme response to the photo.
However, it appears the beef between Banks and Del Rey actually dates back to 2018, when Del Rey spoke out against Kanye West for wearing a ‘Make America Great Again Hat’.
“Don’t use Kanye for your own vapid attempts to seem politically aware when there is SO MUCH MORE bootleg witchcraft you could be doing to TRY and take down 45”, Banks wrote on Instagram at the time.
From there, Del Rey responded by urging Banks to “say it to [her] face.”
“U know the addy. Pull up anytime. Say it to my face. But if I were you- I wouldn’t… “I won’t not fuck you the fuck up,” she said.
“Banks. u coulda been the greatest female rapper alive but u blew it. don’t take it out on the only person who had ur back,” she added.
As if that wasn’t messy enough, Banks proceeded to call out Del Rey for her “Michael Jackson nose.”
It seems Banks’ most recent attack on Del Rey’s weight wasn’t unprecedented, as at the time she also said Del Rey needed “some FlatTummyCo lollipops and a $20 waist trainer!”
In response, Del Rey said she would send Banks the number of a good psychiatrist because her “psych meds aren’t working.”
More recently, Banks called out Del Rey for her comments on double standards in music made in May of this year.
“Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce have all had number ones about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f**king, cheating etc – can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money – or whatever I want – without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorising abuse?” Del Reys said.
Banks then responded over on Twitter: “That girl really said she invented women speaking their minds huh. Like I’m not dreaming? That actually happened ?”
“Like how many times are white women gonna randomly claim to have opened the pages the way for certain things to happen THAT WERE ALREADY HAPPENING!?” she continued.
While Del Rey has yet to publicly respond to Banks’ latest swipe, it’s safe to say we wouldn’t be at all surprised if this wasn’t the end of this hectic, altogether confusing feud.
