Azealia Banks and Lady Gaga Beef Online

Harlem rapper: Singer looks "scared" in leaked video.

Published September 10, 2013

The beef between Azealia Banks and Lady Gaga rages on. After Banks accused Lady G of hijacking her own Mermaid Ball theme, the Fame Monster allegedly hit back during an appearance on Good Morning America Monday (Sept. 9).

During some down-time, Gaga is heard telling fans of an unnamed female, "She has a bad attitude." Although Gaga asked her Little Monsters not to record footage without approval, the video still ended up online.

In response, the Harlem native tweeted, "Lady gaga looks so nervous and scared here lol, she's like 'don't record this' hahaaaa."

Her issues with Gaga stem from the "Applause" singer's request that fans dress up for a then upcoming show. "I will be providing a list of acceptable attire for #SwineFest throughout the week. Item 1: Seashells. Item 2: Seahorses. 3: Starfish," she tweeted late last month.

Banks has been committed to the mermaid look for a while now and replied to the tweet with, "Sounds a lot like Azealia Banks' mermaid balls," referencing her own water-themed gigs. "Of COURSE gaga wants to play mermaid again…Pffft" she continued before adding, "Not picking a fight. Just all looks soo familiar…To me."

A few days later, Gaga rocked a seashell string bikini at the MTV Video Music Awards and Banks took the accused immitation as flattery, sarcastically tweeting the same day, "@LADYGAGA Yaaaaaas b---h!!! You better promote the head negress During YOUR performance !!! #promo #mermaid #huge."

Taking another hit at the 27-year-old, she also tweeted, “On a scale of 1-10, how out of ideas is Lady Gaga?”

When Banks isn't engaging in Twitter spats, music is the "212" rapper's focus. She Instagrammed the track listing of her Broke with Expensive Taste debut today, now slated for a 2014 release. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
