The usually private 26-year-old singer talks to V about her unique sound, and gets defensive about her music being labeled "alternative R&B."
"'Alternative R&B' is patronizing to R&B," she says, via E! News. "R&B is R&B -- it doesn't need an alternative. There are plenty of artists now experimenting with electronic music, manipulating sounds. We can make a train into a synth. We can make drips into hi-hats. I can record sounds on my phone and make a song out of a city. I don't know what that has to do with R&B."
As for her personal life, it appears her relationship with the Cosmopolis star is getting serious.
FKA Twigs was spotted in London over the holidays, which she presumably spent with Pattinson and his family.
"They absolutely loved her," E! Newssays of the "meet the parents" moment. "It went so well. Rob's family has always been supportive of him and they thought they were great together."
The Daily Mail goes one step further, quoting a family source who claims that Pattinson's parents actually prefer her to his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart.
"FKA is not as clean-cut," the source says, "but that makes her more fun, and Robert can get very serious."
In December, the singer opened about Pattinson, calling him the "man that [she] loves."
"That side of my life [the paparazzi] is nothing to do with me," she told The Guardianabout the constant scrutiny on their relationship. "That's, like… That is the… side of life of the man that I love. ... I look uncomfortable because I am uncomfortable. But then it's like, is this person in my life worth that? And he is, without question... In comparison to how happy I am. And how I feel with him. It's 100 percent worth it."
