The outspoken and controversial rapper Azealia Banks seemed contrite Friday night, when she used her Twitter page to dial back some of the mess she created when she told Billboard she wanted to have sex with President Barack Obama.

During an interview for her Billboard feature this month, Banks said of Obama: “He’s so fine… Those big-ass white teeth and ears hanging off his head. I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I want to f**k the president.’”

Friday, the self-admitted “hot mess” seemed regretful:

“Ok no the part about the prez was not supposed to be in there I really wish I could take it back omg I was only joking,” she began.

As a post script, she added, “I think Michelle Obama just put a hex on me cause I’m sick as a DOG right now.”

Banks made headlines in March when she said told Playboy, “Yes! I hate everything about this country,” When asked if she wanted to leave the United States, she continued: “Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms.”

Banks also told the men’s publication: “My little white fans will be like, ‘Why do you want reparations for work you didn’t do?’ Well, you got handed down your grandfather’s estate and and you got to keep your grandmother’s diamonds and pearls and sh*t.”
