FKA twigs has got legs for days. Robert Pattinson’s fiancee posed for Paper magazine’s October 2015 Nowstalgia issue and looked fiercer than ever in a simple black swimsuit. The songstress accentuated her toned legs with a pair of Vivienne Westwood wedges.
While chatting with the magazine, the buzzed-about British singer, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, revealed she wants to have kids one day and that she has no desire to be a part of Taylor Swift’s squad.
“I think Taylor Swift is great, but I wouldn't necessarily think, ‘Oh my god, I have to be friends with her,’” twigs, 27, admitted while talking about her style of music and fan base. “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…I'm honest, and that comes out.”
The South West England native, who describes herself as a “country girl,” got engaged to Twilight hunk Pattinson, 28, just six months after first stepping out with the actor in September 2014. And as fans are well aware, twigs isn’t interested in blabbing about her famous beau, nor about what the public thinks of her.
“I’m not affected by what fans would think, or by people critiquing what I do,” the “Two Weeks” singer, who says she’s actually quite shy, explained, adding that she’s performing ultimately for her future kids.
“[I’m not doing it for] the children of the world; I mean the children that I haven't had yet. I'm quite traditional,” she continued. “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. And I'm actually quite happy with that format. I'm quite happy to say, ‘Go to school, work hard on your GCSEs, do your A-Levels, get married, have children.”
“I just like working hard and learning things,” twigs concluded. “I do this because I want my children to have a nice life, and I want my children's children to have a nice life. And I want my grandkids to be proud of what I've achieved. And I want to be a role model, but not for the world. I don't mind about that — that'll come or it won't come. It's no different from being a car salesman. Imagine if I said to a car salesman, ‘Why are you doing that?’ [They'd say] ‘Cause I want to work hard, and I want to have a nice life, and when I have kids, I want to be able to buy a house.’ It's still the same values.”
