FKA TWIGS SITS DOWN WITH PAPER MAGAZINE FOR AN EXCLUSIVE COVER INTERVIEW WHERE SHE TALKS MUSIC, INSPIRATION, AND EVERYTHING EXCEPT ROBERT PATTINSON.
FKA Twigs is one of the most elusive artists to recently debut and we’ve all wondered exactly what lies behind the daring, and undeniably beautiful facade of Tahlia Barnett. The mystery hasn’t been all manufactured. The 27 year old performer recently threatened to quit interviews for good. “I can’t do it,” she told an alarmed Sunday Times writer “It makes me feel nutty.” So exactly what is going on inside the head of former Kylie Minogue backdancer and now love interest of actor Robert Pattinson?
FKA Twigs on fan support:
I’m honest, and that comes out. Honest people come in lots of different types and they relate to things that aren’t straightforward. I’m happy that people can roll with me, give me a chance, and let me explain my songs through my visuals. But I don’t even like calling fans “fans.” It’s like, [pulls face ] Ugh, fans. [laughs] It’s just people that like your music.
