Although FKA Twigs is leaving very little to the imagination in a leggy bodysuit on the cover of ‘Paper’ magazine, the songstress, (who is engaged to Robert Pattinson!), admitted that she’s actually very traditional, and wants to get married and have children.
British singer/songwriter FKA Twigs is known for her unique sound and sense of style, but don’t let her music and her fashion fool you — at the end of the day, she’s “quite traditional.” In the November 2015 issue of Paper magazine, The songstress rocked nothing more than a skin-tight American Apparel bodysuit, flaunting her cleavage in the leggy look. The interview proved to be just as telling, as she opened up about her future — and how fitting, considering she’s engaged to our favorite former vampire, Robert Pattinson.
“I’m quite traditional. You know that saying, ‘You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl’? I grew up in Gloucestershire, and there’s a certain format that people fit into. I’m actually quite happy with the format. I’m quite happy to say, ‘Go to school, work hard on your GCSEs, do your A-Levels, get married, have children. Send your kids to a nice school. Make sure you’re in the right catchment area,’ ” she said.
She also discussed being brave as an artist. “To write things that are like, ‘Fuck, that was made, now it’s out,’ you have to be so brave, because ultimately you’re going to get people throwing rocks at your babies — throwing rocks at your songs, your feelings,'” she said.
As for her energy as a performer, she said, “I throb. Do you know what I mean? I have that throbbing energy, and I accept it, and I harness it when I need to. It’s not even a conscious thing.”
FKA also opened up about how her connection with her fans differs from that of Taylor Swift. “I think Taylor Swift is great, but I wouldn’t necessarily think, ‘Oh my god, I have to be friends with her.’ When I meet fans, they’re quite creative and intelligent, kind, sensitive. Some are old ladies, witch doctors from Louisiana, kids that have just left art school. Gay or lesbian couples, straight middle-aged couples…”
