Azealia Banks threw in the towel nearing the close of her first song at the Listen Out Festival.
As the 22-year-old rapper began to perform her opening number, “ATM Jam,” this past weekend at the music festival in Melbourne, Australia, she was hit by a can of beer — this according to various sources.
Banks immediately dropped her microphone to the floor and stormed off stage. Following the incident, she tweeted: “Sorry to all the festival-goers in Melbourne!!!!! See ya tomorrow in Brisbane !!!!!”
The next day she tweeted, to ease the concern of her fans:
The can definitely didn’t hit me….and I definitely still got paid. More press please and thank you.
In another tweet, Banks jokingly added that she would bring a tennis racket with her next time around. We’re glad she’s able to make light of the situation and move on.
