Angel Haze’s rise as part of an apparent new breed of pop “superwoman” isn’t an idea lost on anybody. Springing up along with the likes of M.I.A., Azealia Banks and a now disappointingly conformist Nicki Minaj, it should be noted that it’s a development not specific to gender conventions. Mykki Blanco, Le1f and Zebra Katz, are sending identity politics into a head spin with their refusal to be defined by, or shy away from, their sexuality. Azealia Banks alludes to seducing another man’s girlfriend in 212 (with the line “your bitch might lick it”), and Le1f is candid in the video for “Wut”, saying “This yuppie’s talking blah blah, he wants to Binks my Jar Jar” while perched on top of an oiled-up, half-naked dude. Angel Haze, meanwhile, acknowledges lesbian rumours in “Jungle Fever” (“This one guy thought I was a lesbian/ Lesbatron thespian”), while defining herself as “pansexual” when pushed to in press.
