Turns out Azealia Banks' new peacekeeping outlook isn't a fluke. The rapper dropped a handful of revelations in a new interview with NME, among them: She's trying to mellow out. "Am I hanging up my fighting gloves? Yeah. I'm a lady," she said. "I don't wanna be dealing with that. Now, when you feel the adrenaline going, you stop yourself. I'm done with that. I've done it already. You've seen me curse people out. Let's do something else now." Banks is already onto the next thing: her follow up to Broke With Expensive Taste, Business & Pleasure, due next year. While she didn't go into much detail about it, other than being half-finished, she did discuss her friendships with Ariel Pink and Lana Del Rey, who frequent her dinner parties. As for what she and Lana talk about? "Girl stuff. Like, love and life and stuff. It's cool because I'm really loud and like, aaagh! And she's really reserved and dainty. I love Lana." Um, how can one go about getting a seat at that table?
