AZEALIA BANKS: Strips Down for Social Media
Azealia Banks is in the news again — this time, for showing off her birthday suit on the ‘Gram.
Banks made waves by posting a full nude picture on IG. She’s since deleted it, replacing the original flick with a flood of different artistic iterations of the photo.
In the original post caption, Banks explained that her recent song "Escapades" was the inspiration behind the photos, before sharing an anecdote of how her mother would walk around the house naked doing chores and singing Donna Summer and Chaka Khan at the top of her lungs.
She then advised her fans to screenshot the photo, as she intended to delete it soon after posting.
2 CHAINZ: Touring in Pink Wheelchair
2 Chainz broke his leg, but the show goes on -- instead of cancelling his tour, the Chainz powered through the problem with a custom-made pink Trap wheelchair.
The Pretty Girls Like Trap Music Tour featuring the Trap Choir kicked off in Tucson, Arizona last night. 2 Chainz logged onto Instagram, explaining how the show almost didn't happen.
He wrote, "I broke my leg 11 days ago , and had surgery 10 days ago...When I woke up from sedation the doctor told me, "Looks like you're gonna have to cancel your tour." So I told him maybe it means God wants me to use my mind and be creative."
He continued: "So after all the morphine and pains meds wore off I called management and said somebody find me a pink wheelchair. I can't let my fans down."
Following the opening date in Arizona, 2 Chainz will head to the West Coast, Chicago, and New York.
