Outspoken Harlem rapper Azealia Banks is at her Twitter-ranting ways yet again. In a recent interview with The Coveteur, fellow rapper A$AP Rocky offered Banks some not-so-nice beauty advice. Basically, he doesn't think women (especially those of a darker complexion) look good in purple lipstick - it just so happens that Banks released her own shade of deep plum MAC lipstick last year. Miss Bank$ took personal offense to the comment, and later hit up Twitter to insinuate that Rocky "should come out of the closet" and just accept the fact that he's gay. It looks like Rocky's heterosexuality is being questioned yet again...

The Coveteur has since reworded Rocky's rather offensive comments, but what he originally said is:

"But for real, for me, I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the pair of complexion. I'm just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like-fu##ing for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls cant do... Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the fu##..." 

A$AP then admitted that bizarre shades of lipsticks are fine, but "I'm going to be real, though... It's bad for making out, because it gets on the guys." 

Banks immediately responded on Twitter, posting on April 9:

@AZEALIABANKS: "Lol @ asap rockys lipstick advice... Some people should just come out of the closet."

When A$AP Rocky fans came to the "Goldie" rapper's defense, Banks then tweeted:

@AZEALIABANKS: "So rocky takes a direct blow to my image about dark skin and purple lipstick, then as soon as I'm a offended .... I'm the bad guy... Typical day in the life of AB."

She goes on to explain why she decided to call A$AP out:

@AZEALIABANKS: "That comment was so hurtful. Like hurtful beyond measure. Coming from him especially... It made me cry. It did."

@AZEALIABANKS: "...Especially since rocky stole my hair style from the 212 video... I remember these dudes when they didn't even have haircuts and cabfare... NI##AS KNOW. AZEALIA KNOWS."

She finally concludes with:

@AZEALIABANKS: "Mad cause I'm mad... Having opinions on my opinions... Damn..."

Banks is known to spark rather heated feuds on Twitter - she once got into it with fellow female rapper Angel Haze, and once tweeted that celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was a "fa##ot."

This isn't the first time someone has questioned A$AP Rocky's sexuality. The rapper attempted to squash such rumors last November when he told November HipHopDX, "I'm a heterosexual man. I never been gay a day of my life. I used to be homophobic, but as I got older, I realized that wasn't the way to do things."

Rocky has yet to respond to Banks' tweets... 

What do Mstars readers think - is a Twitter feud about to erupt?
