Azealia Banks prefers to date “fat men”.
The 22-year-old rapper burst onto the scene with her feisty hit 212, which played on huge catwalks, including Alexander Wang and House of Holland.
While she might have taken the music industry by storm, the openly bisexual star is still searching for that special someone to share her success with.
“I would love to date a famous man!” she enthused to British magazine InStyle.
“OK, who do I think is hot? Liam Neeson is hot. I think Jonah Hill’s cute. He’s cuter when he’s chubby. I like a fat guy. I think Larry David is hot, too. I’m looking for a New York guy – put this in the article! – with a nice Upper West Side apartment. No kids. I want him to have a bagel and a coffee and a joke. I just want to talk to somebody who can talk to me. I don’t want to talk at someone. And I can talk…”
Azealia didn’t have an easy upbringing, sharing that her dad used to beat her mom, who she also describes as “crazy and violent”.
She grew up around drugs, with her father passing away from pancreatic cancer when she was just two.
The star describes herself as “trouble” and says her past is to blame.
“I feel like when I was younger it was anger,” she mused sadly.
“Now I have a chip on my shoulder that I can’t get off. I know I’m only 22 but I think I’m diva of the universe and I can’t help but express that all the time. And I offend everyone. They say, ‘You’re so selfish.’ And I’m like, ‘I know,’ but I can’t help it because nothing was ever about me when I was little.”
