Azealia Banks slams Rihanna’s ‘Work’ music video and rants about ‘divas’ in pop music

Outspoken rapper compares Rihanna's new clip to Beyoncé and Sean Paul's 'Baby Boy'

Rihanna may have premiered two music videos for her new single ‘Work’ but Azealia Banks has revealed she’s not impressed with her efforts.

The rapper, who is well known for her rants on Twitter, took to the social-networking site to compare Rihanna’s new promo to Beyonce and Sean Paul‘s 2003 clip for single ‘Baby Boy’.

According to Digital Spy, in a now-deleted tweet, Banks said: “Work video reminds me of baby boy video with Sean Paul except not as fly.”


And, she didn’t stop there, with the star going on throw shade at “divas” in pop music today, writing: “Music is honestly so fucking trash and boring. Let’s start a fucking beef and make shit interesting.

“All these fucking pill popping divas doing the LEAST and the shit is boring. Get these hoes a coffee and a pair of boxing gloves. Bring out the real artists !!!!!”

She later added:


Rihanna is the latest artist to be targeted by Banks, with the likes of Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and The Stone Roses all feeling the wrath of her acid tongue.

There is currently no response from Rihanna, who has arrived in the UK with rapper Drake ahead of her performance at The Brit Awards tomorrow (February 24).

Despite not approving of the Bajan-born singer’s ‘Work’ promo, Banks did hit back at those who criticised Beyoncé’s latest song and music video ‘Formation’.

Earlier this month, the ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ rapper took to Twitter to excoriate white feminists who she claims have criticised the popstar for only supporting black women.
