Get your “I just read the articles” excuses ready, fellas, Azealia Banks’ Playboy cover is here.
The “Wallace” rapper took to Twitter and Instagram Friday (Mar. 13) to share the frisky, Ellen Von Unwerth-shot image with promises of more to come on Monday.
The colorful shot features the outspoken Harlemite dressed in a leopard print leotard, red knee high boots, purplish hair and an actual black cat on her head with the tagline, “Hip-hop’s fierce queen is ready to roar!”
“It's Catty Noir in the Flesh!!!! #PLAYBOY #COVERGIRL,” she wrote.
Catty Noir, of course, refers to the pop diva Monster High cartoon character, who serves as Banks’ photographic muse.
As for the nude photo spread inside the magazine, readers should expect them to be tasteful.
“Well, I don’t spread, if that’s what you mean,” she told London's Evening Standard Magazine. “I don’t think you will see any, like, pink. I don’t know if they will show my cl-t. They might. I dunno. I don’t mind nudity.”
As for the, um, money shot, well, that remains a possibility.
“I’m not going to show my p---y unless I get the cover,” she said.
