London: Azealia Banks, who is known for her outspoken lyrics and Twitter wars, has caused more controversy off the stage thanks to a scandalous Dazed and Confused cover which has been banned in seven countries including India.

In the picture, which has already set Twitter aflutter, the bisexual rapper can be seen inflating a raspberry coloured condom and is over the headline “Azealia Banks blows up”, the Daily Mail reported.

The issue is not available on sale in Singapore, Dubai, Malta, Switzerland, India or Thailand because it is deemed too risque.

Leaving aside the magazine’s September issue’s cover page, the 21-year-old stuns in the shoot as she wears her blue extensions that fall at her knees, and opens up about her violent upbringing at the hands of her mother.

Showing off her inner mermaid qualities, the ‘212’ hitmaker looks captivating as she stands in a blue and white football jersey with a sleeveless leather jacket.

With her eyes fixated on the camera lens, she tilts her head upwards as her blue locks with tints of purple cascade down her shoulders.
