On the attention she and her music has received:
“I definitely have more money and shit, but that’s all virtual stuff. I’ve been making music for a while. And I could read about myself on the Internet for a while.”
On meeting Kanye West and other celebrity fans:
“It’s cool, but they’re just people. The skies don’t part and glow orange.”
On who she looks to for inspiration:
“Everyone. ...Azealia Banks.”
Since the hit of her latest record, Azealia has been welcomed into the fashion world with open arms, even performing at top fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld's house in January 2012. Karl has taken a liking to the young rising star, recently inviting her to perform once again in Japan at the official Chanel pop up store party. Azealia Banks charmed a crowd consisting of huge names like Sarah Jessica Parker, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls with her newest song "Fuck Up The Fun."
