AceShowbiz - It looks like Azealia Banks has picked the wrong person to be dragged. The outspoken rapper ended up in hot water after she roasted Normani Kordei, saying that the songstress is just impersonating Beyonce Knowles after watching her performance at Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie collection fashion show on Friday, September 20.
During her set, Normani delivered a fierce dance performance to Sean Paul's "Get Busy" while she modeled a printed bra, underwear, matching gloves and black tights. People were totally loving her performance and gushing over the Fifth Harmony member on social media. However, Azealia was less than impressed as she felt that Normani was just doing a Beyonce impression.
Commenting underneath a video of Normani's dance, the "Anna Wintour" rapper said, "I'm sorry, I'm not accepting her as a Beyonce replacement. Beyonce Por vida. Normani can do her Beyonce impression all damn day long. There is only ONE bey." When someone urged her to stop comparing the two singers, Azealia responded, "Of course she can be great without comparisons … as soon as she gets her own schtick lol. Until then she is a Beyonce understudy sans the vocal prowess. A very unnecessary addition to the music world in that regard."
Many have since defended Normani, with some trying to see this in a positive light as all the women who have been dragged by Azealia, such as Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B, ended up becoming more successful than her. "Azealia bringing up normani is good b/c whoever sge brings up gets booked busy and elevated. Cardi, Meg, Lizzo and now Normani so lets keep pushing N up into thesky," one said.
Another person, meanwhile, pointed out that Azealia once said that people should put the spotlight to Normani. "Now that Normani is getting her shine azealia wants to hate," so the individual said. "I expect nothing less from her tho hating on anyone that's getting more shine than her." Someone else wrote, "Azealia banks loves talking down on successful Black Woman that's why she's never going to be successful because all she does is put out negativity because what she said about Normani was so uncalled for."
Normani herself has yet to respond to Azealia's diss.
