I bet Azealia Banks is claiming this year to be her year to shine! She has become a muse of Karl Lagerfeld and has had her music featured at fashion shows. Recently, Ms. Banks was featured in Nylon Magazine. Check out pictures from her feature and some other tidbits.
Question: Karl Lagerfeld made you the face of his Net-a-Porter collection, and Nicola Formicetti used your track in his Thierry Mugler menswear show – the only other person he’s used is Lady Gaga. How’s the whole fashion muse thing going?
“It’s a flatter, but I’m just trying to stay focused and get my album done, you know? I’m keeping my mind off of it.”
Question: Tell us about your album. It’s gonna be amazing!Tell us something we don’t know about your album!
Aw, thank you. Okay, it’s called Broke With Expensive Taste and it’s coming out in September. The theme is a young girl trying to find it, you know?
Question: Find what?
Success! Herself! Her path! The young girl trying to make it! That girl who’s at the end of her childhood trying to get a job and make some money, you know? She needs to get what she can get! She needs to go out there and show people she knows how to work for it.
