FKA Twigs holds sold out concerts, has a cool sense of style, and is dating British star Robert Pattinson – and with all that comes an ugly side of fame.
‘Twigs’ has been the target of racism and threats since it became apparent that she was romantically involved with Pattinson, best known for his work in the Twilight movies.
In a new interview, Twigs said that she’s glad to be dating the actor.
Nonetheless, despite the hoards of paparazzi following her every step and the “14-year-old” haters who “should be in bed”, Twigs says that it’s all “very worth it”.
“I really enjoy the fun of putting something out and people liking it or hating it or talking about it,” she told USA Today, “but vacuous attention, it feels disgusting. It’s like a hangover.”
However, “the positivity that I get from (my relationship) makes the more challenging aspects … very worth it.”
But dating one of the most beloved actors in the world isn’t easy. Between that and all the attention surrounding her rising fame, Twigs has had to deal with an ugly amount of backlash – racist remarks, death threats via Twitter.
Twigs said, “Recently, people said horrible things about something I had no control of, which was tough.”
She adds, “I never really saw anything wrong with how I looked, it was more that certain people pointed things out to you about yourself. Either your hair’s different, or the colour of your skin, or your features.
“Half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating.”
On her debut album, FKA Twigs explores heartbreak and reveals raw emotions, about which she said, “You try to do something, and it makes you feel disgusted in yourself.
“Whether it’s loving someone, trying to make music or trying to finish something and it’s painful, you’re constantly confronted with your lack of skill level, or you’re trying to love someone and you’re confronted with all the demons you have.” Oo-er…
Still, Twigs loves fashion—even if not everyone understands her sense of style. “I’ll go shopping and I’ll be like, ‘I want to buy this,’ and they’re like, ‘You don’t really,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah… Then I’ll wear it, and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, actually, that’s cute. Can I borrow it?'”
So, whether you listen to her music (LP1) or know her because of her sexy ex-vampire boyfriend, the British singer FKA Twigs undeniably has the potential of becoming one of 2015’s biggest new artists, and it isn’t down to having RPattz as a boyf’!
Check out her intense new music video.

I hear Robert Pattinson might be leaving Los Angeles.
The actor, who sold his $6.4 million mansion near the Hollywood sign last year, said in a recent interview, “The house was so amazing. I wasn’t really thinking when I got it. I was just living in LA and had been living in and out of hotels, and you have money for the first time.”
Pattinson says, “If you are the kind of person who needs to be pushed into doing something, then Hollywood is not the right place, so I think I might be done with Los Angeles.”
I’ve just realized that in the past few weeks,” he adds. Oo-er!
“I think I need to spend more time in London, or just move around a bit more,” explains Pattinson. “I’ve been in LA for six or seven years or something and it’s weird. The more you stay there, especially as an actor, the more you think you need to be there, that you’ll be missing out on something by leaving, but you are not really.”
The famously self-deprecating Pattinson still has a little trouble with the fame aspect of his career.
“I self-obsess a lot. When I’m doing interviews I’m always waiting for some stupid remark to come out,” he explains.
Pattinson goes on to say, “I try to avoid getting into any subject where I’m locked into something. It’s not like I’m a politician or something. I used to be so dumb in interviews, I used to try and make jokes all the time and everyone is thinking, ‘This guy is a moron, he’s just been saying dumb stuff for years and years.’”
He seems to be very happy with how his career has changed.
“It’s quite nice doing small parts,” says Pattinson. “Then the film isn’t totally reliant on what I do in it, so I get to work with who I want to work with and it’s not my fault if it doesn’t make any money.”
I have to say, I too have felt like leaving LA… But after spending a time away you come realize there’s just no other place on earth like it. You can’t beat Los Angeles…
Robert, you’ll be back…mark my words!

He’s been linked to several high-profile women since his break-up with Kristen Stewart last year, but now Robert Pattinson is reported to be in his first serious relationship since KStew.
This week reports have surfaced that he 28-year-old star of the Twilight movie saga is dating rising British singer FKA Twigs (real name Tahliah Barnett). Oo-er!
The hunky actor has been dating ‘twigs’ for a couple of weeks now and sources are saying it’s the real deal.
“It’s the real deal between Rob and Tahliah,” the insider said.
“They had been able to keep their relationship secret until recently, but they’re already smitten.”
“He’s been taking her on dates for the last month or so, and has even flown her out to stay with him in New York. He also loves going to her gigs.”
Twigs (the FKA stands for ‘formerly known as’, added after another artist complained that the name Twigs was already in use) has already created quite a career for herself in music, earning huge praise for her second EP and singles including Water Me.
And the 26-year-old, who was shortlisted for the BBC’s Sound of 2014 award, is hoping that she avoids any drama with Rob’s ex, as well as dodging being pigeon-holed as just a celeb girlfriend.
Meanwhile, KStew was thousands of miles away in Japan, where she is promoting her new film, Equals, a futuristic utopian thriller in which she stars with British actor Nicholas Hoult.
Pattinson and Stewart have had an on-off affair for many years, and Kristen’s affair with director Rupert Sanders in 2012 appears to have signalled the death knell to their Twilight romance.
Pattinson’s latest film Life will be released in 2015. He recently told The Guardian that he’d like to appear in “something in a really small theatre”.
He added: “I don’t think I could do something on Broadway… But I’d quite like to do something kind of shocking.”

There’s something new in the life of British-born star Robert Pattinson that’s been completely life-changing… wait for it, um…moisturizing!
Known for his love of grungy style, beanies and scruffy hair, RPattz, appears to be resurrecting that image just a tad, in the Dior Homme fragrance campaign. While speaking with The Wall Street Journal, the 27-year-old “Twilight” stud opened up about his grooming habits, namely his skincare regimen, and shared that he recently switched up his morning routine which has worked wonders on his flawless face.
“I was a brush-your-teeth-and-have-a-shower kind of guy.
“I can’t tell if it’s because of my association with Dior or because I’m older, but I’ve started moisturizing,” the heartthrob revealed, citing Dermo System Repairing Moisturizing Emulsion as his favorite skin salve.
“It’s been a quite a profound change in my life,” he added with a tinge of sarcasm.
Arrrgh! Get me a bucket… Which PR wrote this script!!! #puppet!
Dior Homme Eau for Men will go on sale in the U.S. in February.

Originally, I thought this was an unlikely campaign but after seeing Robert Pattinson’s Dior Homme ad, I was pleasantly surprised… I liked it!
The one-minute, eight-second video titled “The Film” was has finally been released in its entirety after being posted on fashion house Christian Dior’s YouTube channel last week. The “Twilight” alum sizzles in the black-and-white short.
Pattinson was named the face of the men’s fragrance back in June, joining the ranks of Dior’s A-list celebrity spokespeople: Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Eva Herzigova, and Jude Law to name a few, who have all promoted the brand’s fragrances.
The campaign was shot by American photographer Nan Goldin and French director Romain Gavras and they’re meant only for European and Asian markets that exclude Great Britain, China and Japan, according to Dior (via WWD).
However, they are very visible in those places and here, thanks to a little thing called the Internet.
In the video, the 27-year-old lazes about fully clothed in a bathtub, runs on rooftops, drives fast cars on the seashore, jumps in a pool and messes around with French model Camille Rowe. All this — set to the tune of “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin — for no other reason than to sell a men’s fragrance.
Pattinson explained that he was he was initially “terrified” and “scared” to shoot the Dior campaign’s short film, the actor says he signed on because “I wanted to do something different for me.”
“Doing something that is quite mainstream but also edgy fit into where I want my life to go,” explains Pattinson.
Rob goes on to call the final result — released last week — “visceral, “quite wild,” and “hopefully pretty sexy.”
And who exactly is the “Dior Homme man”? Pattinson says, “The Dior Homme man is I think someone who’s just a little bit wild.”
“[He] does whatever he wants, is a bit of a free spirit, not really scared of anything, can be whoever he wants to be,” says the movie star.
Dior was also sure to share its official ad hashtag “#DIORROB” at the end of the video for those who feel the need to share the campaign via social media. Ouch, I say… Verrry sexy!

Twilight actress Kristen Stewart still manages to look drop-dead gorgeous despite her recent troubles.
The love cheat has crawled out from under the stone from whence she lay to pose for international photographer Mario Testino for October’s issue of British Vogue.
This is her first interview since being dumped by her longtime boyf’, co-star Robert Pattinson.
Stewart, 22, and R-Patz, 26, split last month after Stewart had a much publicized fling with married film director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart was papped kissing the “Snow White” director on a cozy date, and since then all hell has broken loose in her life.
She told the glossy magazine, out next Monday, why she often struggles to deal with fame: “I’m not that smooth,” she says.
“I can get clumsy around certain people.”
“Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be!”
Um, You got very clumsy Kristen…you got caught!
Here’s some advice on how to conduct yourself in public… Try NOT kissing men behind your boyfriend’s back in future!

Get ready for the mother of all bitter custody battles ever… No, Tom Cruise isn’t about to fight Katie Holmes for Suri, even bigger that that (ahem, joke) Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are about to go head to head over the custody of their dog, Bear.
After news broke last week that the naughty actress had a shock affair with film director Rupert Sanders, R-Patz swiftly moved out of the mansion they shared in Los Angeles.
Now, according to well-placed sources, the newly separated couple has since agreed that Stewart, 22, will keep her cat, Max, but Rob wants full ownership of the dog they recently adopted from a New Orleans shelter.
The shamed actress, who plays Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga, is particularly fond of the pooch, having helped Rob, 26, to nurse him through potentially fatal canine disease Parvo.
One source said: “After Rob moved his things out of their Los Angeles apartment, the then told Kristen he wanted Bear.
“She was heartbroken – they adopted Bear together and she’s always felt that he was their little baby.
The source added: “But Rob was so hurt by Kristen’s actions he decided that he wants the dog to help him get over what happened. After all, a dog is a man’s best friend and Bear is such a good companion.”
Insiders are now saying that Kristen is getting ready to put up a fight to keep hold of the pup.
“Kristen won’t give up Bear in a hurry. She helped Rob save Bear from Parvo disease, which nearly took his life when he was a puppy.
“She wants joint custody – and it could get a little messy,” the source claimed.
I hope the couple gets to sort things out before the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, this type of public brouhaha is sure to affect the promotion of its upcoming release… I say give it up K-Stew, you are not the popular bunny you use to be!
Even though they say, “All’s fair in love and War Paw!” Um, not in this case…

Nobody can accuse ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson of not having a career plan…
The British actor has revealed he wants to take on the role of James Bond, but not before, he has gained at least 20 more years of experience in his career.
Phew, so, Daniel Craig fans need not worry…Rob won’t be replacing the heartthrob any time soon!
The ambitious 26-year-old is keen to play the iconic spy and thinks he will be able to do it justice in two more decades.
He confessed: “Yeah, I’d definitely like to go for Bond, but in more like 20 years.”
There’d be nothing worse than, like, Let’s get a fresh-faced Bond! That would be the worst idea in the world. It would be ridiculous to reinvent it as some young posh kid.”
He added: “After Daniel Craig you have to have some baggage. I’d have to be tortured in the first few scenes.
“I’d have to do the first film with one arm or something.”
Well, by my calculations, I reckon that between 2012 and 2032 there’s likely be at least another five or six Bonds to make Craig’s version a distant memory.
So I’d say Pattz hasn’t too much to fear!
