The Azealia Banks Magazine Cover That Was Banned In 7 Countries

Wherever Azealia Banks goes, you can bet that a trail of fashion news will follow in her wake, whether it's getting into tiffs with fellow potty-mouthed rappers, sitting front row at the Chanel show, or getting herself banned in seven countries. Before the cover was even released, it was announced that Dazed and Confused's latest issue featuring Banks — with a blown-up condom along with the headline, "Azealia Banks Blows Up" — would be banned from seven countries.
Now that we've seen the cover, we can see how some newsstands might get their panties in a twist, but we think Azealia looks positively badass, with mermaid hair and pitch-perfect Chanel makeup. For a lady who's somehow managed to inspire entire club-filled audiences to scream, "I guess that c**t getting eaten," we expected nothing less shocking than this.
Says interviewer Karley Sciortino about Banks, "She's an extremely smart and driven person. She's really funny, blunt, and flips her hair a lot — like the classic 'bitch from a teen movie' hair flip. It's a good move." Click through to see the rest of the images, and then visit Dazed to read the accompanying interview.
