Watch: Azealia Banks' '1991' Video

With bonus new Twitter beef.

Azealia Banks has taken a short break from her near-daily Twitter beefs to debut the video for the title track on her 1991 EP. With a few strategically placed lines in French and some 'Fringlish' additions ("Voulez-vous nigga mad François"), the video is an especially sophisticated affiar with Azealia wearing a black bustier/pantsuit ensemble, her lips carefully accented with a sultry plum shade from her new collabration with M.A.C.

Azealia Banks has also taken to the Twitterverse once again. This time, it's to call out a certain Amanda Brunker (whoever that is) on her racist remarks. After some serious sleuthing, we have managed to uncover the identity of this newest Twitter culprit — thank you Google. Brunker is an Irish columnist, novelist and former Miss Ireland most famous for her stint as a trending Twitter topic back in 2011, when she replaced Jessie J at Oxegen Festival alongside some band with a total 12 Facebook followers. So, now that we have cleared up the matter of Brunker's celebrity status, what did she say to so irk Azealia Banks? 

It all began with Brunker quoting Banks' lyrics for '212'. Soon giving up on that gig, she doled out the following excuse: "I'm not black enough to tease the rest of the lyrics…Gotta love it though : )" To which Azealia promptly replied "'Black enough?' Wow. How ignorant." This subsequently sent Brunker into a back-peddling, bumbling spin that saw her ask Banks to "follow me for a minute". We gather that request was denied, given the lone post that followed of "please" and the 'Get Out of Jail Free Card' du jour: "Can peace, love and understanding please return to the Twitterverse?"

Just plain awkward.
