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.

    Before this board is invaded by hateful & racist (mostly Kstew) fans, yup there are still quite a few out there who just refuse to give up & move on, I’d just like to say to twigs to continue to do her own thing! There is nothing wrong in being a unique, quirky, weird, strong, independent & talented woman. Haters gonna continue to hate & spew more venom, which will hopefully make your bond with Rob stronger. You are truly an inspiration to all women & not just women of colour. Cheers:)

    I like the pics and am a “fan” of her mamms, but I wish the bish would smile more.

  • werd

    I agree with her about the use of the term fan. I think it’s weird how every popstar now has a specific name for their fans and refers to them as “My…” You don’t own them.

  • Christopher I. Gomes

    like her individuality….

    I actually like this artist , she definitely has talent

  • Fuqit

    No Kstew fan cares about this woman, so keep trying.
    Poor thing, just another ex burlesque *cough whorehouse* singer/dancer actually thinking she has talent.
    The next Prince haha, let me laugh.

  • MC336

    I don’t like the mophead look. I thought she’d have new moves not seen before but it’s the same stuff and vogueing is passe.

  • Robbear

    Well, being a burlesque dancer is certainly better than dry-humping your movie’s married-with-kids director, IMO! Kristen is happy & so is Rob with twigs. Why are you so bitter/hateful? Do you know them personally? Just let go of the past & move on for your own sanity.

  • Fuqit

    True colours lol. Still petty and butthurt she dared cheat on Pattinson. Well, good riddance, she’s certainly in a better place now. Actually everyone is in their rightfull place, a wannabe, a has been and a reformed star.

  • Robbear

    Continue to stay hateful/bitter if that makes you feel good about yourself & your beloved idol, cheers!

  • Fuqit

    5she’s still better than them lol. Cheers

  • D.w. Finton

    you care very much

  • D.w. Finton

    There’s another one. they care so much.

    It didn’t take you long to prove the first poster right. JEALOUS.
