In other music news….
Azealia Banks is no stranger to controversy, nor is she afraid of speaking her mind. So seeing her in “whiteface” should come as no surprise.
For the visual treatment of her track “Ice Princess” the Harlem raptress transforms into an ice princess, giving up a little Elsa (from the Disney movie Frozen) tease. While on the set, she shared a few shots of herself in white, powdery makeup and crystal blue contacts as she transformed for the visuals.
Posting the picture to her Instagram using the hastag “whiteface”, y’all KNOW this caused some controversy on Twitter from fans and foes abroad. As we all know by now, she’s not one to hold her tongue, so she let everyone who had a negative opinion have it, evening referencing the time Snopp Dogg transformed into his white character Todd.
Here’s what she said:
And for kicks:
Speaking of Snoop…..
Today is signing day for high school athletes and Snoop Dogg along with his wife Shante Broadus are gleaming with joy! Their son Cordell Broadus, who stars in the ESPN series “Snoop & Son”, has officially confirmed where he will be playing football for his college career.
So did the 27th ranked wide receiver pick his dad’s beloved University of Southern California? Nope! He’s creating his own lane and chose to attend and play for the UCLA Bruins. Diddy’s son Justin Combs also plays football there.
The proud dad took to Twitter and tweeted:
Nice! His mother is also overjoyed, captioning the pic above, “Baby Boy @cbroadus #UCLA #Proudmama #Support #Ontothenext #Rideordie #Bruins ”
