Love them both. Both looked tacky. Tacky is not always a bad thing.

Sad that I haven't heard anything else from Azealia that I love since 212.
originalheifer 12th-Nov-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
212 aint got nothing on her Fantasea mixtape tbh.
originalheifer 12th-Nov-2012 08:16 pm (UTC)

aubade_saudade 12th-Nov-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
this is such a fucking non-issue imo

it has been done before, will be done again. it's something fun and campy that's done because it's fun and campy

phallus 12th-Nov-2012 08:19 pm (UTC)
I know. People make such a huge deal over it.
roguewave3 12th-Nov-2012 08:38 pm (UTC)
