Coming to newsstands this July 19th, Elle magazine presents FKA Twigs, who conjours mystique, the name itself embodies a lot of enigma .
While she may not sound familiar to many in the older generation but but rings a bell to new gen below 30. Maybe for her affair with teen idol vampire Robert Pattinson or it could be for her artsy inscrutable approach to but fashion and music . To this age group, she just might be the next Prince – no kidding , the girl’s music has a level of spirituality that is quite unfathomable. British singer/songwriter/dancer/producer . The 28 year-old is photographed by Paola Kudacki and styled by David Vandewal with looks selected from the likes of Valentino, Clavin Klein, Prada, Salvatorre Ferragamo, to mention a few.
Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Robbie Myers said, “FKA twigs is making some of the most boundary-pushing music and performances around. She’s an artist sui generis, and she’s on the verge of being one of the most influential of her generation.”
Here’s a peek at her interview with ELLE’s Lizzy Goodman .
On Why She Doesn’t discuss projects until finished and releasing her works without any fore-warning : “People talk too much,” she offers. “Everyone’s always chatting and not delivering. I’m the opposite. I like to just deliver.”
She refuses to use the word ‘Fan’, here’s why : To her, it feels “derogative,” so she’d rather call them “people who like my music” or “people interested in me as an artist.” “They don’t influence what I make,” she says, “but they have a role in us all coming together and creating something genuine.”
She couldn’t care less about the fame . She addresses being in the public eye as thus : “Being in the public eye is so weird,People want to shame you. It’s not a celebration of a talent.” She speaks wistfully about an era before social media, when Josephine Baker could dance on tables all night, then “go out for vegetables in her T-shirt” the next day and not have it all documented.”
