FKA twigs has an arguably unconventional stance on relationships.
The singer-songwriter, who’s engaged to Robert Pattinson, recently spoke to ES Magazine about the deeply personal inspiration behind her “Papi Pacify” music video, in which a man is seen sticking his fingers down her throat.
“In the relationship I couldn’t communicate,” FKA Twigs revealed of her ex. “The person I was with was stopping me from explaining how I felt. So the physical manifestation is someone putting their hand in your mouth.”
She continued, “But there’s an element, too, of liking that as well. It’s messed up. It’s addictive.”
The 28-year-old went on to elaborate on the images in the video, which she considers both “violent” and “beautiful.”
“It’s kind of sexy, like emotional abuse can be tender. That’s why it’s messed up,” FKA twigs added. “If you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, it can be tender, that’s why you stay. And you stay because there’s a poorly part of your mind that likes it.”
As for her engagement to the Twilight actor, she continues to remain notoriously tight-lipped. ” Good luck with that,” she responded when asked about Pattinson. “No questions. No chance. I’m not getting involved.’
The pair has witnessed their fair share of breakup rumors since Pattinson popped the question in April 2015, but recent photos of Robert and FKA twigs indicate they are still going strong.
At the height of those aforementioned rumors, a source insisted to E! News “things are just fine” between the twosome, adding, “There isn’t a rush to get married. Fall plans turned into winter plans and now there are no specific plans, but they still plan on getting married.”
