Indeed, Azalea has made headlines for her feuds with fellow rapper Azealia Banks. Banks has called out the Australian for her cultural appropriation and refusal to comment on African-American issues. So it was no surprise that the Saturday Night Live version of Iggy Azalea invited her “top feud friend” to join the talk show.
“Azealia Banks,”(played by Saturday Night Live’ Sasheer Zamata) admitted she only came on The Iggy Azalea Show because she thought Azalea would apologize. “Azalea,” for her part, then put Banks’ hat on her own head so they could be “twinsies.”
But the fun really began when “Iggy Azalea” announced her second guest, Rafti Jones (played by SNL guest host Chris Hemsworth). Jones was another mentor of “Azalea,” and the two gave hip hop tips to the studio audience. “When you don’t know what to do, make a gun sound,” “Jones” said in this Saturday Night Live parody.
Other advice from “Iggy Azalea” and “Rafti Jones” in this SNL spoof included using random lists of items, like “sweet potatoes, bang bang, Lisa Lang.” Or, when all else fails, just twerk.
“When your mouth gets tired of rapping, let your booty do the talking,” Hemsworth’s character concluded on Saturday Night Live before twerking with “Iggy Azalea.”
“Azealia Banks” refused to get involved with the twerking and list-making. But as for the real Banks? She was quite impressed with the SNL parody.
I totally have to chime in on the SNL skit. It was really funny and spot on. I loved my outfit so much LOL . @nbcsnl
