Azealia Banks, fashion’s newest darling, seems to be leery of the fashion industry’s warm embrace. According to Fashionista, Banks recently told HYPETRAK in a video segment, “If you place your faith in the fashion world you will get let down as an artist. You absolutely will get let down.” The manner in which she describes the industry is that of a fickle beast, saying “you can very easily get sucked up by the fashion world because they bring artists in to make themselves look a certain way. Then, as soon as someone new comes up they’ve completely forgotten about you. They’re so fickle, they’ve completely forgotten about you, and they completely disregard you.” She also expressed that too much attention from the industry can “smoother you” and serve as a negative distraction, which almost happened to her.
We are now wondering if we will be seeing less of fashion’s darling on red carpets and hearing more music from her.
