Harlem rapper/singer Azealia Banks has shut down one of the most polarizing parts of her career: Her Twitter account, followed by 549,000 people.
She wrote on Tuesday, March 8:
"Ok, today, i'm finally making the decision to eject from social media. american media culture is honestly so fucking disgusting and junky and complaining about it is not going to change it. reading shit, seeing stupid ass articles and dumb bitches/bros has just really filled me up with a lot of bad feelings. it's been a great couple of years, sharing opinions and having conversations, but i think i will be so much happier just NOT looking at this. (Americans have the WORST taste in everything.) So my friends, its time to say goodbye once and for all to this account. This account will exist no more. Time for a bit of Mystery... Goodbye."
