Azealia Banks may have achieved a significant level of fame at a fast pace and an early age, but that does not mean the rapper isn't a regular person who is capable of freaking out when in the presence of one of her idols. During a recent interview she had with Rolling Stone, Azealia spoke about her two idols being Aaliyah and Beyonce and recalled how she ended up crying the first time she met Beyonce in person.
"Aaliyah. And I love Beyonce – she's the queen of everything. She's the most remarkable performer and musician. And this is just my humble opinion, but I just think she's better than everyone else making music right now.
"I met her – and I cried! It was so embarrassing. It was at the Met Ball. I was f-cking around with Kanye and she was sitting there, chilling and eating dinner. I freaked out. And I realized she saw me being a dummy and I started crying. Then I saw her expression, like, 'Girl, get your sh-t together.' I had to walk away and get myself together and pat my face, then come back to properly say hi! And if I meet her again someday, I'll probably cry again."
