It’s well-documented that Azealia Banks (the gremlin baby one, not the White Chicks–looking one) is a certifiable mess who is actively trying to convince her record label that she’s dead , so no one was surprised when that difficult mogwai was a no-show at the Hove Festival in Norway. No, literally, no one was surprised because no one was there to watch her.
According to Gigwise, Azealia didn’t want to make the 4-hour drive to the festival site (probably because she only has that one song to perform) so she called up festival organizers at the 11th hour and told them she wasn’t going to make it. Thankfully, they didn’t have to worry about the crowd losing their minds and turning Hove into Altamont when they found out the singer of that song from The Bling Ring trailer wasn’t going to make it. Someone tweeted this picture of what was allegedly the audience 5 minutes before Azealia was scheduled to perform, and they all look like they were ready to leave anyway:
I’m really hoping this picture is real and not just some cruel gremlin prank, because it’s almost too perfect. There was a better turn-out when my elementary school jazz band played the ribbon-cutting of a parking lot. But in the event this picture is fake, I want to know what concert Waldo and his girlfriend Wilma were there to see. You’re right, definitely Cradle of Filth.
And I know Azealia Banks is trying to convince her record label that she’s dead, but I think her “fans” are doing a pretty good job all by themselves.
