    The rising hip-hop star took aim at Perez Hilton on Twitter after he labelled her "pathetic," branding the openly gay blogger a "f**got", before writing, "omg u should just kill yourself... Like for real... lol (laugh out loud) what a messy f**got you are."

    Banks went on to defend her tweets, adding, "A f**got is not a homosexual male. A f**got is any male who acts like a female. There's a BIG difference.

    "If u listen to my music and are not offended by the word n**ga... We're not gonna go here with this f**got s**t... We're just not."
