Azealia Banks has responded to rumours she ate her dead cat Lucifer after cooking it.
The 29-year-old American rapper said she didn’t eat the cat but shocked fans with an even more horrifying revelation on Wednesday, Jan 20.
She revealed during a live radio interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show that she owns the skull of a six-year-old girl who died of head trauma.
She found the skull on a “scientific research website” and even showed it off via Zoom during the interview.
After posting a video to Instagram last week of herself digging up her dead cat and boiling it, there were rumours the rapper who has admitted to practising witchcraft ate the cat’s remains.
But she said in response: “Absolutely not, no I didn’t eat the cat. And firstly, I wouldn’t eat a cat that has been dead for three months.”
Azealia explained that she’d dug up and boiled Lucifer “as part of taxidermy”, which is a hobby she’s interested in.
“I don’t know what you think happens when you go to a medical school and you see a skull or skeleton there, it’s the same thing that happens,” she added.
She disclosed that her collection includes the skull of a dead child.
“There are lots of scientific research websites where you can buy human skulls like this one,” she said, holding up the skull on the livestream.
“Oh, my God, you’ve got a skull there,” radio presenter Kyle Sandilands said.
“This is the skull of a six-year-old girl who died of head trauma,” Azealia replied.
Kyle’s co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson then asked: “Why do you want that?”
Azealia said she “loves bones” and “respects the afterlife”, adding: “I think that the bone is where the energy holds for a person.”
As for what happens to the remains of the dead cat she cooked, Azealia created an altar using the remains of her dead cat.
She also plans to make earrings out of her dead cat’s jaw bones.
This isn’t the first time Azealia has done something this spooky. She admitted in 2015 that she’s a witch and said her interest in magic came from her mother. Then, in December 2016, she shared a bizarre Instagram video showing herself cleaning out a cupboard after three years of apparently sacrificing chickens.
