In a new interview with USA Today, Twigs got the question about dating Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
She also talked about the fame and gossip aspect of their relationship and how she’s not interested in all that. Here are some highlights.
On trying to do something different:
“You try to do something, and it makes you feel disgusted in yourself. Whether it’s loving someone, trying to make music or trying to finish something and it’s painful, you’re constantly confronted with your lack of skill level, or you’re trying to love someone and you’re confronted with all the demons you have.”
On dating someone famous like Sparkles:
“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. It’s weird, I know that’s not really because of me or what I’m doing,” but nevertheless, “the positivity that I get from (my relationship) makes the more challenging aspects … very worth it.”
Making herself unrecognizable in her artwork:
“Being beautiful isn’t everything. … Sometimes it’s interesting to show how you feel on the inside on the outside, just through expressing yourself. Sometimes I look at someone like (singer/producer) James Blake, and I kind of envy the fact that he’s a 6-2 English guy and no one will say he’s changed his T-shirt from black to blue. People will only talk about his music.”
And on the fact that people need to stop second-guessing her:
“I’ll go shopping and I’ll be like, ‘I want to buy this,’ and they’re like, ‘You don’t really,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah,’ ” she says, smiling. “Then I’ll wear it, and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, actually, that’s cute. Can I borrow it?’“”
