FKA Twigs on media scrutiny: ‘It makes you want to smash your face into the mirror’.

The eclectic and experimental R&B singer opened up to the New York Times about her upcoming, sold-out show, Congregata, and how her career has been affected by her relationship—and now engagement—to Twilight star . twigs might be a talented, beautiful artist but because of her mixed-raced relationship with Robert Pattinson she has suffered a stream of racist abuse.The British musician, who released her debut album LP1 last year, began dating Pattinson in September 2014, with rapper T-Pain recently claiming that the couple are engaged (later retracting such claims). The 27-year-old was thrust into the spotlight as soon as she stepped out with R.Pattz for the first time and hasn’t left it since, which is something she wasn’t used to beforehand. “It’s really hard—I can’t begin to explain how awful it is,” she said of the constant paparazzi. “It makes you want to just stop everything sometimes.

The LP1 star – real name Tahliah Barnett – has been dating the Twilight actor since the summer of last year, and there’s even suggestion that the two are engaged. I’m so happy.” She also told the publication that in addition to her constant scrutiny since becoming the Water for Elephants actor’s better half, she has also experienced a new level of racism on social media.

There’s no amount of songs I can sing or dances I can dance that will prove to them I’m not a monkey.” She added, “Nothing can impale my work or make me choose not to say things a certain way or make an image the way I want. The biracial star has also faced a slew of social media backlash since their engagement, as many fans of the the actor launch racially charged attacks her on Twitter and Instagram.

She and R.Pattz made their first red carpet appearance at the 2015 Met Gala where her Christopher Kane dress stole the attention from their grand debut.
