About FKA twigs

Singer, songwriter, director FKA twigs was a world-class backup dancer before releasing her debut album LP1 in 2014. Since then, she’s quickly risen as an artist and lover of surrealist and experimental dance and fashion on Instagram, but her appearance in a “penis dress" at the Met Gala solidified her as an “it girl." Not a big Twitter user—in part because of some racist comments she received for dating actor Robert Pattinson—twigs has taken to tumblr, releasing beautifully choreographed art-piece videos for all her new songs on her 2015 release M3LL155X, and documenting her seven-day performance residency in Manchester, England, with endless dance gifs.
