For those of you who doubted Azealia Banks' wild tales of spending days inside of Elon Musk’s mansion waiting to make music with Grimes, Musk finally admitted he did in fact see the artist in his home during her extended stay.
The Tesla founder and his reps previously denied Banks’ claim. He even pulled a Mariah Carey and told Gizmodo that he had “never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way.”
But turns out Banks wasn’t lying, and Musk admitted as much to the New York Times. "I saw her on Friday morning, for two seconds at about a 30-foot distance as she was leaving the house. I’d just finished working out. She was not within hearing range,” he said. “I didn’t even realize who it was. That’s literally the only time I’ve ever laid eyes on her."
On Aug. 12, Banks said she’d been “sitting at Elon Musk’s house alone for days waiting for Grimes to show up and start these sessions.”
The next day, Banks returned to Instagram to drag Musk and Grimes to filth. “This trash ass beta male pig was given his start in life because his disgusting racist parents took advantage of thousands of black people,” she wrote in one post. In another, she claimed Grimes coddled him all weekend while he was on an acid trip, which could explain why he didn’t recognize Banks in his own home.
Banks also called Grimes a "dirty-sneaker-inbred-out of the woods-Pabst beer pussy methhead-junkie,” and suggested the couple really invited her over with the intent of having "some weird threesome sex shit.”
Despite what Musk told the Times, Banks told Business Insider she'd also seen him in the kitchen after attempting to court investors for his plans to make Tesla private. "They bring me out there on the premise that we would hang and make music...I saw him in the kitchen tucking his tail in between his legs scrounging for investors to cover his ass after that tweet,” she said. “He was stressed and red in the face.”
For fans of the two artists wondering if the collab was still on, Banks wrote "last time I try working with a white bitch." So, no probably not.
As entertaining as Banks’ rants were, the tirade was so ridiculous it was also filled with an air of disbelief. But if she’s telling the truth about staying in Musk’s home, what else could she be right about?
