Azealia Banks Claims She Owns The Skull Of A Six-Year-Old Girl

Azealia Banks claims she owns the skull of a six-year-old girl.
The singer was speaking to an Australian radio channel discussing her love of the human anatomy and bones, when she made the shocking revelation.
She told the hosts of the show, Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O, that she bought the skull online.
The 29-year-old said: "If you check on your card, drivers licence, to be an organ donor, they're not just picking out a healthy heart and picking out a healthy liver, they are bisecting every part of your body and selling it.
"There are lots of scientific research sites where you can actually buy human skulls, like this one."
Understandably shocked by what they have seen, Kyle and Jackie then ask why Azealia has the skull of a child in her home and where she got it from.
She says: "I got it from boneroom.com, and this is the skull of a six-year-old girl who died from head trauma.
"I love bones. I respect the afterlife. I think the bones are where the energy holds for a person."
Now, Azealia was actually a guest on the show to discuss the rumours that had been circulating online claiming she had eaten her dead cat.
The '212' singer explained that the rumours had got out of control and that the real story, while a touch gruesome, was much less sinister.
She said Lucifer had struggled with problems to do with his kidneys for a number of years and then sadly died due to a 'poor diet'.
And after burying the cat, Azealia said she decided to dig it back up and preserve its skull.
She said: "I didn't eat the cat. I would not eat a cat that's been dead for three months.
"That's [boiling the animal] part of taxidermy. I don't know what you think happens when you go to a medical school and you see a full skull or skeleton, that's what happens."
Expanding on her cat's health problems, Azealia said she chose to let her cat die at home rather than take him to a vet to be killed.
She said: "I had to make the decision whether I was going pay some vet to shoot him up with a drugs, kill him, incinerate him and then throw him in a pile with other dead cats.
"I wasn't conformable doing that so I let him die peacefully at home, then I buried him then I dug him up to get his skull so I could clean it up and have it.
"That's how you do taxidermy. American hunting culture when you go into any hotel lobby in the Catskills [in New York state], there are deer heads that have been taxidermied that are hanging off the wall.
"There's something really weird about humanity about which animals which choose to save, which animals we save, which we think are valuable."
