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.
