FKA twigs is really starting to struggle with her relationship with Robert Pattinson. However, it’s not because she doesn’t have strong feelings for her finance — the singer simply despises the baggage that Rob still carries because of his connection to Twilight.
FKA twigs, a.k.a Tahliah Barnett, recently opened up about what it’s like dating Robert Pattinson. Many Twihard fans might think that being Rob’s betrothed is akin to living the life of a fairy tale princess, but it sounds like all the tabloid attention their relationship attracts is making twigs feel more like she’s being tortured in a castle dungeon.
“It’s really hard — I can’t begin to explain how awful it is,” twigs recently told the New York Times. “It makes you want to just stop everything sometimes. It makes you want to smash your face into the mirror.”
FKA twigs understands that many of Robert Pattinson’s Twilight fans will never accept her as the new love of his life — many of them still can’t get over his breakup from Kristen Stewart. These “Robsten” fans will never give Tahliah Barnett’s work a chance because they just can’t stand the fact that she’s engaged to the actor, and Barnett says that the racist attacks from these fans are “relentless.”
“There’s no amount of songs I can sing or dances I can dance that will prove to them I’m not a monkey.”
At the bottom of a Gossip Cop article about FKA twigs’ interview, there are already over a thousand comments about FKA twigs. Many of them are pretty critical of the artist.
“She’s black, talentless and not a beauty at all,” one commenter wrote. “She always bashes Rob’s Fans in general in her interviews because of a couple of nuts calling her vile names. She could shut down her social media to avoid those nuts, but she prefers playing martyr to have public sympathy and never talk about her work during her interviews.”
“Twigs has a lot of people bamboozled, and still does, including Rob himself,” another wrote. “It just baffles me how some of these people can’t see through her or see her for what she truly is.”
May fans expressed a similar concern about Barnett manipulating Rob.
“You better believe that Twigs plays Rob like a fiddle with her sob stories about how she was never the pretty blonde or the popular girl, or how she grew up poor or never had anything, not to mention how she probably whines and makes him feel bad about HIS fans abuse and the ‘unwanted’ attention that HIS fame has brought her. She plays on his sympathy as well as everyone else, depending on the situation. She’s is a master manipulator and an opportunist of the worst kind.”
Even though FKA twigs finds it difficult to deal with all this negative attention, she’s willing to put up with it for Rob.
“I didn’t see my life going this way at all, but it’s worth it,” she told the New York Times. “I’m so happy.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the artist was even brave enough to attend the MET Gala with Robert Pattinson — while wearing a dress with a penis drawn on it. According to twigs, she was surprised by the media’s reaction to the colorful gown.
“Everyone was just like,’Oh, look, there’s a penis!'” she said. “I didn’t think about it. I’m so naïve. I’m like, ‘I’m wearing art!'”
Because FKA twigs is already struggling with the spotlight, do you think she’s making a mistake by marrying Robert Pattinson?
