Your girl Azealia Banks is on the September 2012 cover of Dazed & Confused.
On being sexual at a young age:
“I’d always get my recesses taken away for letting boys touch my butt in the lunch line I got in trouble for fooling around in school a lot. I just wanted to be touched, ya know? I just wanted to have sex and my mom was always working so there was never anyone around to tell me no.”
On being independent as a teen:
“We grew up in the hood, but we had some money. But I moved out when I was 14 to go live with my older sister, because my mom just had, well… issues.”
On being abused as a child:
“After my dad died, my mom became really abusive – physically and verbally. Like she would hit me and my sisters with baseball bats, bang our heads up against walls, and she would always tell me I was ugly. I remember once she threw out all the food in the fridge, just so we wouldn’t have anything to eat.”
