According to the London Evening Standard the above cover shot for Dazed & Confused has been banned across the world;
Azealia Banks is no stranger to controversy. With a smash hit song about the C-word and a penchant for studded leather and angry Twitter brawls, the Harlem-born rapper has quickly gained a reputation as one of this year’s most provocative and outspoken exports. And now even her image has been branded illegal.
After the star posed for the cover of September’s Dazed & Confused magazine, the edition has been banned in seven countries. The image, seen here for the first time, reveals Banks inflating a large bright pink condom between her lips along with the words “Azealia Banks blows up” and has been deemed too risqué by authorities in Singapore, Dubai, Malta, Switzerland, India and Thailand. The issue is due out in the UK tomorrow.
