Dating one of the most famous men in the world isn't easy—just ask FKA twigs.
When FKA Twigs first began dating Robert Pattinson, she was regularly harassed on Twitter. "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," she tweeted at the time.
For the first time ever, the "Two Weeks" singer, 26, has revealed how she's coping with being bullied online by "14-year-old kids that should be in bed." As she explained to USA Today, "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. It's weird. I know that's not really because of me or what I'm doing, [but] the positivity that I get from [my relationship] makes the more challenging aspects...very worth it."
Instead of discussing her romantic life, though, FKA Twigs would prefer to discuss her career.

On her debut album, LP1, FKA Twigs sings about heartbreak. "You try to do something, and it makes you feel disgusted in yourself," the singer said of its inspiration. "Whether it's loving someone, trying to make music or trying to finish something and it's painful, you're constantly confronted with your lack of skill level, or you're trying to love someone and you're confronted with all the demons you have."
Though she's also a visual artist, FKA Twigs isn't all about aesthetics.
"Being beautiful isn't everything...Sometimes it's interesting to show how you feel on the inside on the outside, just through expressing yourself,. Sometimes I look at someone like (singer/producer) James Blake, and I kind of envy the fact that he's a 6-foot-2 English guy and no one will say he's changed his T-shirt from black to blue," FKA Twigs told USA Today. "People will only talk about his music." Still, she loves fashion—even if not everyone understands her sense of style. "I'll go shopping and I'll be like, 'I want to buy this,' and they're like, 'You don't really,' and I'm like, 'Yeah,'" the British "Pendulum" singer offered as an example. "Then I'll wear it, and they'll be like, 'Oh, actually, that's cute. Can I borrow it?'"
