FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson have been together for ages now, and things are going really well. I mean, that’s an understatement since they’re engaged and all, but you get what I mean. While RPattz’s level of fame with the TwiHards is hard for anyone to deal with, Twigs has managed to come to terms with it all… but she’s not happy about it.
From The New York Times:
Ms. Barnett likes to say she’s “masquerading as a pop star,” while also being sucked into the vortex of “Twilight,” with photographers around the world chronicling her relationship with Mr. Pattinson. “It’s really hard — I can’t begin to explain how awful it is,” she said. “It makes you want to just stop everything sometimes. It makes you want to smash your face into the mirror.”
Worst of all are the racial insults — she is biracial — on Twitter and Instagram, some of them from die-hard fans of Mr. Pattinson. “It’s relentless,” she said. She insisted that the attention their relationship draws does not help her professionally. “There’s no amount of songs I can sing or dances I can dance that will prove to them I’m not a monkey.”
“I didn’t see my life going this way at all,” Ms. Barnett said of recent events. “But it’s worth it. I’m so happy.”
God bless her, because I don’t think I could do it. I actually think these two are pretty great together and will probably last. They seem really well-suited and I like them both. Twigs does some crazy good music, and Pattinson always seemed pretty down-to-earth, despite all the sparkly vampire shit.
