“How you all enjoying that cotton candy?” Azealia Banks grins. No need to worry what that might be a euphemism for. The most gasped-over new rap talent on either side of the Atlantic is most literally talking about the fluffy fairground confectionery, being handed out free to fans at the side of the venue.
