And here we go with the oddest, and yet most creative thing you’ll likely watch today: the new video called “Glass & Patron” by 27-year-old Tahliah Debrett Barnett — or FKA twigs, as her fans know the Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter. Warning: NSFW language appears in the below video.
Fittingly, the strange and amazing journey that is the YouTube video called FKA twigs – Glass & Patron (Official Music Video YTMAs) is roundly going completely viral on the website whilst “FKA twigs” is trending hard on Twitter with folks having just as wild reactions to the video that makes you feel like you’ve entered a creative world while watching it unfold.
In the video, the U.K.-based FKA looks at the camera over her mountainous fake pregnant belly, and goes into labor as she begins pulling a bunch of colorful unending streams of fabric out of herself, instead of a baby. No, in “Glass & Patron” FKA twigs births a bunch of amazing vogue dancers, reports Pitchfork — with those vogueing dancers giving Madonna’s dancers a run for their money in her popular “Vogue” black and white video. What, with the way they fall to the ground in high heels and move around better than Irish clog dancers, the vogueing folks nearly steal the show.

Speaking of Vogue, the fashion mag named the peacock-dress-wearing woman the best dressed of the week, and viewers can scant take their eyes off of the woman, an English producer and dancer in her own right. After getting out of the county that she says was in the middle of nowhere, “twigs” left Gloucestershire for the bright lights of London as a 17-year-old, a move that is surely paying off now that this self-directed “Glass & Patron” is blowing folks’ minds with its weird lyrics and imagery.

As reported by the Inquisitr, the songstress has been the subject of many recent stories due to her relationship with Robert Pattinson, who recently was alleged to have pushed a fan — an act caught on video — in what some say was a valiant attempt to protect his lady love.
Overall, people are trying to figure out the exact meaning behind the new video, and wondering what ingesting glass has to do with Patron.
