FKA Twigs Doesn't Like the Term 'Fan'

FKA Twigs Doesn't Like the Term 'Fan'

FKA twigs is placed under lock and key on the cover of Elle magazine‘s August 2016 issue, on newsstands in select cities on July 12.

Here is what the 28-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On why she puts her work into the world without warning: “People talk too much. Everyone’s always chatting and not delivering. I’m the opposite. I like to just deliver.”

On why she refuses to use the word “fan”: To her, it feels “derogative,” so she opts instead to call them “people who like my music” or “people interested in me as an artist.” “They don’t influence what I make,” she says, “but they have a role in us all coming together and creating something genuine.”

On being in the public eye: “Being in the public eye is so weird. People want to shame you. It’s not a celebration of a talent.”

FYI: Twigs is wearing Prada on the cover.
