Singer Azealia Banks Praises DeSantis, Says She Feels ‘Safer’ in Fla. Than LA

(Headline USA) Singer Azealia Banks praised Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis this week, saying she feels “way safer” living in Florida than she ever did in Los Angeles.

Banks relocated to Miami in 2021 from California and said her time in LA was spent “isolated and scared.” She recalled being surrounded by wealthy white liberals who put “Black Lives Matter” signs in their front yards but did nothing to help minority communities policy-wise.

“Every which way I turn there’s a Black Lives Matter sign, and then we’re watching swathes of Latino people die every day because they’re considered essential workers,” she told The Guardian. “I had to go because I can’t do this — either COVID was gonna kill me, or depression.”

In Florida, people “mind their f***ing business,” Banks said. 

She also praised DeSantis for focusing on the issues that people care about.

“He’s focused on the basic s**t,” she said. “There are elderly people in our country without walkers, who don’t have the money to get a septic tooth pulled. If we’re talking about divvying up healthcare funds, those situations should take precedence to facial feminization surgeries and stuff like that … I think DeSantis is practical about a lot of things.”

Banks has not shied away from expressing her conservative opinions before. In 2016, she endorsed former President Donald Trump, arguing he “is the only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business.”

“Just because Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders say nice things about minorities doesn’t mean they actually mean them,” she said at the time.

During her interview with The Guardian, Banks also blasted rapper Kanye West, who has made a string of anti-Semitic comments over the past several months.

“Just because you can’t get attention from Kim Kardashian, you turn it on your f—ing daughter,” Banks ranted. “Kanye, you’re an abusive a–hole and you’re a p—y for picking on that little-a– girl.

“You are the last person we need to hear from about black fatherhood and the black family unit,” she concluded.
