Everyone knows that Robert Pattinson fiancee FKA twigs was once a back-up dancer and appeared in several music videos of various artists like Kylie Minogue and Cheryl Cole. However very few people know the comic side of twigs. Check out one such picture of twigs below where she appears to be mocking fun of a Beyonce-lookalike.
In a 2011 BBC comedy, “Beyonce Wants Groceries,” the Gloucestershire singer and dancer acted in a short comic film that mocked Beyonce and her split from her former band Destiny’s child. The music video shows Robert Pattinson fiancee FKA twigs appear at the 45 second mark. Watch below:
The songstress, who was a back-up dancer earlier, belongs to anti-Beyonce group and is one of the six girls featured in the old music video. At one point of time, the now 28-year-old singer is even seen dancing with cabbages in both hands! Check out the picture below.
Twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Barnett, hails from a humble, low-income household where her mom was a ballet dancer and worked in clubs. Being of Jamaican origin, twigs faced lot of racial discrimination as a child in her school because of her skin color and said that it was very “hard” time for her.
“People said horrible things about something I had no control of, which was tough. But that’s okay. Life isn’t supposed to be easy, is it? I never really saw anything wrong with how I looked, it was more that certain people pointed things out to you about yourself. Either your hair’s different, or the colour of your skin, or your features,” twigs said in a previous interview with Dazed Digital.
The “Water Me” songstress, who is now engaged to “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, also faced online abuse from fans of Pattinson and his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart. Many Twitter trolls, who proudly called themselves “Twihards” called her “ugly” and “monkey-faced” but twigs is extremely comfortable with the way she looks.
“Half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating. Everything neutralises. It’s more of a statement on society and how weird it is,” twigs said.
Robert Pattinson fiancee FKA twigs is now known for her original style, her peculiar sense of fashion and style. She is a self-made artist, just like Pattinson and the couple’s relationship is going strong.
