FKA Twigs On Robert Pattinson
Twigs, prior to her relationship with Pattison, was not the subject of media attention – which is exactly how she wanted it. When the two were first pictured together, rumors started to swirl that they’d started a romantic relationship. Now that Twigs and Pattinson have been spotted together numerous times around the world, looking very much like a couple, the media glare has gotten intense.
“I really enjoy the fun of putting something out and people liking it or hating it or talking about it, but vacuous attention, it feels disgusting. It’s like a hangover,” Twigs told USA Today.
The British singer-songwriter added, “It’s weird, I know that’s not really because of me or what I’m doing, but the positivity that I get from [my relationship] makes the more challenging aspects…very worth it.”
Back in September, following the start of the speculation about her relationship with Pattinson, Twigs faced racism over social media. She responded to the personal attacks with a pair of tweets, duly shaming the racists.
I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week.

Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online. — FKA twigs (@FKAtwigs) September 28, 2014
Twigs and Pattinson were last seen together in New York City, when Pattison brought roses to her sold out show at Manhattan’s Terminal 5 earlier this month.
