Robert Pattinson was interviewed by Howard Stern this week, and that means Robert Pattinson said some interesting things worthy of taking the top spot in today’s Dirt Bag. First of all, Pattinson revealed that he and long-time fiancé FKA Twigs are “kind of engaged.” I’m not sure whether that means “it’s complicated”…
Here is your girl, the resplendent, mesmerizing FKA twigs slinking her way through NikeWomen’s spring campaign for the brand’s latest offering, the Spring Zonal Strength Tights, a campaign for which she is also the creative director.
FKA twigs debuted “Good to Love” live on The Tonight Show Wednesday, where she last fully cowed host Jimmy Fallon in 2014 with an artful performance of “Two Weeks” and a giant swathe of silk emanating from the heavens. For this performance, though, she went minimal to match the song, using light and gleaming white…
One tool that fka twigs has always used effectively in her (usually self-directed) music videos is the concept of autonomy. Barring a few clips, like the powerfully choreographed “Glass & Patron,” she is often the only focal point in her videos, which invokes a multitude of themes that also seem to reflect in her…
During a recent performance, Amy Schumer told her audience that being one of the most famous people in the country (world?) isn’t nearly as great as she’d hoped it would be. Though her comments were made during a comedy set, what she said isn’t exactly, uh, funny.
Band-Aids don’t fix bullet holes, but countersuits might fix handsy radio hosts from Colorado! You might recall that over the summer, Taylor Swift accused a radio host named David Mueller for groping her during a “pre-concert meet-and-greet,” after which he was promptly fired by the fine folks at KYGO radio.
Robert Pattinson is featured on the cover of the latest NME, where he talks about his experience dealing with Internet trolls and reading nasty, racist comments about himself and fiancée FKA Twigs.
Science says that 98 percent of people who listen to any given FKA twigs song will then immediately wonder whether she’s avoiding melodies on purpose, or what? Twigs put out a near-perfect album, and is acute, ingenious and dead-on with her aesthetic and production—but aside from a few licks in “Two Weeks,” her…
There are few artists working in the mainstream today that blend mediums and genre with the same skill as musician, dancer, and filmmaker FKA twigs, a fact that she proves once again with the August 13 release of M3LL155X, her third EP, and the enrapturing 17-minute short film that accompanies the music.
Hello and welcome to Southern Hospitality, the New York Restaurant owned in part by singer/actor/entrepreneur Justin Timberlake! Tonight our specials are fried RATfish with succotash and red beans and MICE. Why? Because our restaurant isn’t vermin proof and the vermin are EVERYWHERE. Bon appetite!
The UK’s baddest performer, FKA twigs, is set to drop a new EP soon, and Monday on Zane Lowe, she previewed the first song, “Figure 8,” which she says in the subsequent interview was inspired by the method by which one creates hand illusions in voguing.
As a creative night owl whose mind works best after midnight, my sleep schedule has been one of the hardest things to control over the years. It’s impossible to fall asleep quickly. People who can doze off in a matter of seconds truly amaze me. What is it that they’re doing?
Channing Tatum’s voguing scene in Magic Mike XXL (and in that Vanity Fair clip) seemed to ignite the internet, but even more legendary was the part of the film that featured real-life voguer and MC Dashaun Wesley.
Taylor Swift has joined the chorus of musicians and producers criticizing Apple for refusing to pay royalties during the three-month free trial period of their new streaming service, Apple Music. In a blog post on Tumblr, Swift explained her decision to keep her latest album off of the service:
Arca, the experimental Venezuelan producer who’s worked with Kanye West, Björk, and FKA twigs, was permanently banned from Instagram yesterday for the artwork relating to a new single, “Vanity.” The art, created by frequent Arca and twigs collaborator Jesse Kanda, depicts a melting cyborg-looking person with a fairly…
In 2015, audiences have a fairly fixed idea of what constitutes a “pop” performance. In stadiums and arenas, we expect to be dazzled for the price of our often very expensive tickets, moved from our seats not just with excellent music but with magnificent light shows, elaborate choreography, otherworldly costuming.
FKA twigs is pretty clearly a different type of artist, but in a recent interview she explains a bit about how she came to be the dance-centered, avant-garde performer who is shaking up what it means to be a black, singing and dancing woman.
Look at you: A celebrity human in a celebrity relationship with a celebrity engagement ring that you always take off your celebrity finger before you leave your celebrity house because you don’t want non-celebrities to know that you’re getting celebrity married! But what happens next? T-Pain inevitably does an…
