It's 2018 and Lana Del Rey just told Azealia Banks to pull up. This timeline is wild, guys.

Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks appear to be locked in a serious Twitter feud and the memes about it are already iconic. What are they fighting about, you ask?

Funnily enough, Lana and Azealia are indeed fighting over the singer's Kanye West take down earlier this month.

After Kanye West's pro-Trump SNL rant, Lana addressed him on Instagram, writing "If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the pussy just because he’s famous-then you need an intervention as much as he does."

Azealia Banks soon defended Kanye on Twitter via her cheapyxo account.

Things were pretty quiet on Lana's end, that is, before Oct. 9 when she tweeted "I won't not fuck you up".

Queen of double negatives.

Lana also tweeted "you know the addy. Pull up anytime. Say it to my face. But if I were you-I wouldn't."

The internet quickly descended into FULL meme mode because, in the immortal words of Azealia Banks, "THE GIRLS ARE FIGHTING".

People knew things were TRULY about to heat up because two Gemini witches were in conflict.

Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks are both self identified witches.

Lana confirmed that she'd used witchcraft to attempt to get rid of Donald Trump. Azealia Banks also talks about her witchcraft and once shared videos of herself cleaning the closet she used for brujería (the Spanish word for witchcraft).

People were shook at the randomness of it all.

Is the simulation screwed up? Yes. But it's OUR screwed up simulation.

And folks had ideas about how the fight would go down.


Even though the whole thing was A LOT, people couldn't stop themselves from watching the drama unfold.

Contrary to what you may have thought, Mercury is NOT currently in retrograde. This is just... how the simulation is now. As intriguing as the drama is, we hope the girls resolved the situation in the DMs or, at the very least, when Azealia Banks pulled up for that witch fight.
