Rapper Azealia Banks, in an interview with Billboard magazine, confessed to a major crush on President Obama.
“He’s so fine,” declared the 23-year-old Banks. “Those big-ass white teeth and ears hanging off his head? I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I want to f— the President.’ ”
The Harlem hip-hop star admits she has set her sights much lower in real life: “I love security guards. They’re these big meathead, bald, white guys with blue eyes.”
Banks is best known for her breakout hit “212,” followed last year by her debut album “Broke With Expensive Tastes.” She has also flung Twitter insults at an assortment of artists, including Iggy Azalea, Lady Gaga and Pharrell. The rapper, in a story that ran Friday, added that she was now taking more control of her life.
“There was a point where I was questioning everything,” said Banks. “Am I brushing my teeth at the wrong time? Am I drinking too much? Smoking too much weed? What have I done?”
Banks ruffled feathers last month when she told Playboy she hated “fat white Americans.”
Her crush on Obama has led to a new philosophy — at least for her love life.
“I want a really smart man, who has a lot of silly jokes and stuff,” she said. “I have to tone it down if I want to get that.”
