There must be something in the water in Tinseltown at the minute because there have been some seriously crazy goings-on as of late.
First, Kanye West wore a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and ranted about Trump on Saturday Night Live (now he’s off to have lunch with him, FYI). Then, although usually notoriously silent on political events, Taylor Swift decided to announce she’s siding with the Democrats, prompting a huge number of sign-ups to register to vote.
And now, Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks are feuding over Kanye’s antics, causing a huge reaction on social media.
It all started when Lana called out Kanye for wearing the MAGA hat in an Instagram comment, dubbing his support a “loss for the culture”.
.@LanaDelRey reply on Kanye West IG post. Her words are art and poetry even when she is demolishing Kanye’s need for attention.
I love you Lana Del Rey. Thanks for making replies great again. ♥️ pic.twitter.com/HIw0yuk3zQ

Then, Azealia clapped back at Lana on Instagram Stories for giving Kanye a hard time, calling her a “witch”.
Choosing not to ignore her comments, Lana wrote on Twitter, “Banks. u coulda been the greatest female rapper alive but u blew it. dont take it out on the only person who had ur back.”
THEN, Azealia went on a huge thousand-story rant at Lana…
Twitter’s pretty shaken about the whole thing, including the current reigning queen of Twitter, Chrissy Teigen.
I also won’t not fuck anyone the fuck up except Lana and Banks now I’m terrified, but others, for sure believe THAT

Lana Del Rey singing about happiness and butterflies on Instagram but tagging Azealia Banks to come fight her irl on Twitter is exactly the dual social media energy I relate to

It seems these two won’t be popping round for a cuppa anytime soon. To be continued…
