The singer, who is currently datingRobert Pattinson, put on quite the show Wednesday night at the Hackney Empire in London. Clad in a cutout swimsuit, fishnet stockings and a slitted skirt, Twigs wowed concertgoers including British powerhouse songstress Adele, who’ve been staying out of the spotlight since giving birth to her son in 2012.
The 26-year-old gained critical claimed year when she dropped her Mercury Prize-nominated record, LP1, in August. According to Twigs, born Tahliah Barnett, her music-making process is a lot like being “with a lover.”
“Sometimes when you really truly give yourself to somebody, it can completely backfire and you just end up feeling really insecure, really paranoid, jealous, and ugly. It’s from loving someone,” she told The Wild magazine. “If that person isn’t right for you, all those positive emotions that you are trying to put on someone can end up negatively projected back onto yourself. Then you hate yourself for it.”
“The more music that I put out and the more material that I do, the more I’m completely certain of who I am and the type of person I want to be and what I have to give.” she explained in the same interview. “I can’t be shaken anymore, by anyone. I’ve got to that point in my life that if you’re not a good person, and you can’t make me feel good with love and life, then fuck off, basically.”
