FKA Twigs: Robert Pattinson Relationship “Worth It” Despite “14-Year-Old” Haters
FKA Twigs is not going to let haters get in the way of her relationship with Robert Pattinson. In a new interview with USA Today, the singer says her happiness with the actor far outweighs some online negativity.
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Twigs was bombarded with vile, racist comments on social media after her romance with Pattinson went public. She responded at the time by tweeting, “I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week. Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”
Unfortunately, a lot of the hateful remarks have continued, and at times have seemed to only increase, as Pattinson and Twigs show PDA in front of paparazzi throughout Europe, parts of Canada, and New York City. The British performer now admits to USA Today that the cruel comments have made her use her own social media accounts less, as she faces the uncontrollable wrath of “14-year-old kids that should be in bed.”
“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,” Twigs tells the paper. “It’s weird, I know that’s not really because of me or what I’m doing.” She stresses, “The positivity that I get from [my relationship] makes the more challenging aspects… very worth it.”
Twigs knows she’s under an ever-growing spotlight, as both her professional and personal lives blossom. And, as a female, she thinks she has it harder than her male counterparts. “Being beautiful isn’t everything… Sometimes it’s interesting to show how you feel on the inside on the outside, just through expressing yourself,” says the star.
“Sometimes I look at someone like 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,” says Twigs. Still, it’s understandable why fans are also interested in Twigs and Pattinson’s relationship. Gossip Cop just hopes people will also be respectful of it as well.
