Lily Allen continues Twitter feud with Azealia Banks: ‘Bet my album comes out first’

Singer and rapper continue to exchange insults on Twitter after Banks called Allen's kids 'ugly' on Thursday (July 11)

Lily Allen mocked Azealia Banks for taking so long to release her debut album as the pair continued their Twitter feud yesterday (July 13).

Responding to being branded a “one hit wonder” by Allen during their first Twitter spat on Thursday (July 11), in which Banks called Allen’s children “ugly” and accused her of being addicted to cocaine, the rapper tweeted: “One hit, but am certainly NOT a wonder. Just played for 70k at glasto, critics STILL eagerly anticipating my debut. Suck on that hoe!”

Rising to the bait, Allen tweeted a picture of herself performing on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 2009 before adding:


Retaliating, Banks tweeted that “Lily Allen is promoting the fuck out of Azealia Banks right now” before claiming, as she did on Thursday, that Allen’s husband Sam Cooper looks like a thumb.

She also tweeted directly at Allen, saying “go suck on your mans thimble dick and put thumbalina to bed. Goodnight”, before posting a topless photo of Allen taken by paparazzi several years ago.

Lily Allen recently revealed that she might release a new album in March of next year. The LP will be her third and the follow-up to 2009’s ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’. The singer told the Sunday People: “I’m really enjoying writing it and hope it will be ready for March. It is very different to what I’ve done before.”

In October last year, Allen told NME that although she’d been “tinkering away” in the studio with producer Greg Kurstin, she would not release any music until she was satisfied the new material was “amazing”.

Lily Allen gave birth to a baby girl named Marnie on January 8 of this year. Marnie is Allen’s second child following the birth of daughter Ethel in 2011.
