When I think of British musician FKA twigs, the first thing that comes to mind isn’t the racially charged remarks hurled against her on Twitter but her confidence. From her elaborately styled baby hairs to her minimalist music videos you can feel how self-possessed and intentional she is. When you watch FKA twigs (real name Tahliah Barnett) vogue her away across a stage in New York City, you get the sense that you are looking at a young woman who is not only skilled but one that knows who she is and how she wants to present herself to the world. And in a world that still can’t fathom black women’s full personal and creative expression, it’s refreshing to a black girl who uber-talented and supremely herself without apologizing or worrying about what other people think.

    I love FKA Twigs when I mention her people give me blank stares o__0 her music has depth and has a certain oddness about it that isn’t heard at all right now.

    • Bren

      Yeah, I never heard of her until that whole RobPat ordeal.

  • Anonin

    Idk what it is but something about her creeps me out.

  • omfg

    fka twigs is everythang. EVERYTHANG…

    love her. she’s an artist and she’s dope.

    but she’s not really black. she’s biracial. though she fully borrows from black american style – from her hairstyles to voguing.

      Yeah, I haven’t seen where she’s claimed to identify as black, so she’s biracial to me. I wonder why white people don’t claim biracial folks like we do (OK i know why but it’s just interesting to witness).

      @Lulu i bet you claim Barack Obama don’t you? And he’s half black.. seems like a woman is biracial or part something else “she aint black” “she aint black” but barack obama is half black and there is no doubt “THATS THE MY PRESIDENT THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT”
      BE CONSISTENT

      @Post: He self-identifies himself as black though and like I said, I haven’t seen FKA Twigs do the same.
