Azealia Banks issued a subliminal response to the controversy surrounding her former foe, Lana Del Rey, this week.
Azealia Banks may be known for running her mouth on several occasions, but this time, she's remaining tight-lipped—well, sort of. Last week, Lana Del Rey posted an open letter "to the culture" in which she called out the industry's double standards and denounced the unfair criticism she's received for her lyrical content, all the while dragging a ton of fellow female artists into her mess. The letter received a massive wave of backlash, as many called out Lana for her racism and overall tone-deaf behaviour. However, Lana remained firm in her stance, which just led to even more outrage.

All the while, a past sparring partner of Lana's was observing quietly, relishing in the satisfaction that she appeared to have been right about the songstress all along. Although Azealia has been involved in a number of feuds with many different people (and a few countries), her beef with Lana was one of the more high profile cases, especially since the two of them used to be buddies.

On Saturday (May 23rd), after Lana published yet another letter doubling down on her original point, Azealia posted a photo of herself looking at her phone with a far-from-surprised look on her face. In the caption of the IG post, she wrote, "Watching it all unfold." It looks like this was Azealia's way of saying "See? I told you so!"
