Move over Rhi Rhi, scoot up Minaj - there is a new girl in town and she's dirtier than both of you put together and coated in Glastonbury mud :)
Bursting onto the scene late last year in a cloud of controversy, with her infectious tongue in cheek tune 212, Azealia Banks was full of the cockiness of youth and rebellious shock factor. Controversial like Lil Kim with the swagger of M.I.A - her first single was barely starting to get recognition before she was badmouthing her peers Kreayshawn and Nicki Minaj..
Banks is already putting her stamp on urban fashion with her uniform of cartoon sweatshirts, booty shorts, frilly socks and creepers. Needless to say she caught the eye of perenially down-with-the-kids Mr Karl Lagerfeld who loves to constantly flank himself with flavour of the month PYTs. She put on a live performance at his house no less and secured herself a firm place in the ever fickle fash pack. Man what I would have given to be there! All ready causing a stir with potty-mouthed lyrics and public disses over twitter this kid has all it takes to make the public sit up and take note, and whilst it may not be for the right reasons I'm pretty sure with her talent and attiTUDE, 2012 is going to be Aa-zee-lee-yah flavoured.
