Erykah Badu Gets Rihanna, Doesn’t Get Azealia Banks

Badu says she “tried” listening to Banks; Banks says Badu is “jealous.”

Erykah Badu ran into Rihanna at the opening of Fendi's New York flagship store this weekend, and graced the world with the photo below. Excuse us while we take a moment to imagine what an E-Rih-kah collab would sound like.

Meanwhile, Badu also (sort of) fell out with Azealia Banks on Twitter yesterday. Things kicked off when a fan tweeted Badu to ask if she listened to Banks, to which the singer replied "Tried." Banks then accused Badu of jealousy, and wrote a couple of subtweets about older artists being critical of young up-and-comers. See how it unfolded below.
