Azealia Banks’s Banned “Dazed & Confused” Cover Isn’t Half As Bad As It Could Be

Rachel Krause / August 16, 2012

When I heard that Harlem-born rapper and lyricist Azealia Banks’s cover of art and fashion mag Dazed & Confused had been banned in seven countries before the issue even hit stands, I anticipated something infinitely more vulgar than her flipping off the camera as she inflates/fellates a condom. I mean, that’s practically some Taylor Swift shit when it comes to the songstress who penned “212,” an explicit ode to cunnilingus. People are so sensitive. []
