Azealia Bank controversial cover for Dazed & Confused

Alright so there’s a new “SCANDAL” in the fashion world. Azealia Bank cover for Dazed & Confused September issue, in which she’s smoking a raspberry coloured condom, has been banned from 7 countries (Singapore, Dubai, Malta, Switzerland, India and Thailand).

It makes me cry that some might compare a poor picture with what women from Femen do for their causes. Because yes, Dazed & Confused ALSO makes art direction mistakes.

  • a blow-job with a fake penis picture? No but are you serious? Is that WHAT you consider CONTROVERSIAL? Come on…That’s what highschool fresh photographers shoot when they have no idea of what provocative they could do
  • leaking some parts of the interviews about her early sex behaviors? No but is that a tabloid reportage or are you seriously pretending to describe the rise of female power?

What do you think?
