Azealia Banks is as outspoken and unfiltered as they come, and has made as much of a name for herself from speaking her mind (opens in new tab) as she has from her music. So we were zero percent surprised to wake up this morning and find that the performer had decided to offer *her* thoughts on the Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus beef (opens in new tab)

Sending out a series of tweets—her preferred means of stirring the pot—Banks points out that Minaj was once a "skinny woman" too, and that her use of "race issues" was opportunistic.

And with that, we'll be here, waiting to see if Nicki responds.
