Azealia Banks is the smiley young crush object of certain internet types due in no small part to lyrics like, "Kick it with ya bitch that come from Parisian/ She know where I get mine from, end of season/ Now she wanna lick my plum in the evening/ And fit that tongue-tongue d-deep in/ I guess that cunt gettin eaten." She's also harboring a deep, dark secret, revealed for the first time officially in John Ortved's New York Times profile of her today:

Ms. Banks considers herself bisexual, but, she said: "I'm not trying to be, like, the bisexual, lesbian rapper. I don't live on other people's terms."

Is America ready for a hot sexy young conventionally attractive forward flirtatious female rapper who talks in pornographic detail about her hot, sexy sexual encounters with other, presumably equally attractive, bisexual women?


Bonus question: Why would a famous openly gay dude in hip hop be a bigger deal than the many already openly gay and bisexual females? (Because of standard male fantasies and a patriarchal society. But feel free to offer alternate theories.)
