It's getting serious!
British singer FKA twigs, otherwise known as Robert Pattinson's new girlfriend, has been playing it cool when it comes to talking about her relationship. But the 26-year-old, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, talked candidly with The Guardian about how much Pattinson means to her—even if it means having to deal with the paparazzi and scrutiny from his dedicated fans.
"I look uncomfortable because I am uncomfortable," she said. "But then it's like, is this person in my life worth that? And he is, without question... In comparison to how happy I am. And how I feel with him. It's 100 percent worth it."
The singer certainly has dealt with her fair share of criticism since making their relationship publicly official last summer, including having to put up with racist comments.
"'I hate her music. I hate her hair. I hate her production. I hate her videos.' Fine: don't care," she said of the backlash she has received since dating the Twilight hunk. "That's the great thing about art, it's not for everyone. But when it comes to racism, really? In this day and age? Pick that?"
Pattinson's last official girlfriend was Kristen Stewart, who broke his heart when she was caught in a cheating scandal with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. So it's no surprise that his diehard fans would be super protective of him, but Twigs understands everything that comes with dating the actor because she loves him despite leading a very different life!
"That side of my life [the paparazzi] is nothing to do with me. That's, like… That is the… side of life of the man that I love. And… when that started happening I had to… Because that is the opposite of who I am as a person, and it was weird," confessed the singer, who typically leads a very private life.
"Then I had to sit back and have a conversation with myself and I had to say: that is something really horrible. No, not horrible, I don't find it horrible, it's something that's very challenging."
She has been adamant about not wanting to be famous, as she previously told Rolling Stone that she doesn't "want to be in front of the camera forever."
"It makes me feel sick, the thought of being a famous person," she said. "It's just not me. I'm the happiest when I'm in the studio, not on a beauty parade."
