Outspoken rapper Azealia Banks thinks of Twitter as "free therapy", and insists she's "thoughtful and considerate"
Azealia Banks views twitter as free therapy.
The outspoken rapper - who has clashed with a number of stars on the social networking site - admits she is more daring about what she says when microblogging than she would be face-to-face.
She said: "Twitter is free therapy. People have said I'm a bigot because I've had a few battles on social media but really I'm not.
"It's just that places like Twitter are like a walk-in therapy suite. You forget yourself.
"I've said things which in real life might have earned me a slap in the face. But actually I am thoughtful and considerate. So, don't let social media turn you into a monster."
Azealia also admitted she always carries "emergency exit money" with her because she never wants to have to rely on a guy for help.
She said: "A woman should always carry at least $75 on her. I've been on so many dates where you think, 'I wish I wasn't a broke b***h putting up with bulls**t from this guy'. All because I didn't have the cab fare home. You need emergency exit money.
"I've had plenty of lean times where I had barely 10 cents to rub together. It's not a nice feeling."
