Azealia Banks Shows Off Her Cattitude for Playboy

Azealia Banks is going to be rocking some serious growl-power (sorry, please excuse the Cheetah Girls reference). The 23-year-old singer Banks will sink her claws into Playboy as their April cover girl, with a sexy, feline twist. There are plenty of pussy cat jokes to be made here but let's refrain, shall we?

Styleite reports that the editors of the infamous men's magazine are calling Azezlia's much-anticipated nude spread "a frisky pictorial that’s sure to break the Internet." And judging from Azealia's fashion inspiration for the shoot (Catty Noir, the popstar kitty from Monster High, according to her Twitter), Banks will definitely be channeling some frisky felines when she strips down. Confirmed by a preview photo of the shoot, Azealia is to make her Playboy debut as a sexy cat, with winged cat eyes, a sprinkling of leopard print, and a serious pair of purple kitty ears.

We're expecting tons of other meow-inspired looks by Azealia in Playboy's April issue and just from the preview pics, I can already that tell the cat attire is going to be full of crazy sex appeal. But perhaps that S&M-esque cat mask isn't exactly appropriate for everyday wear... Want some copy-cat looks that are still sexy but won't necessarily make you look like you've just spent the night in Mr. Grey's Red Room? Then check out these cat fancy looks.
