FKA Twigs Calls Out Uncreative Popstars: “They’re Not Artists. They’re Vehicles, Vessels”

FKA Twigs says those who don't know how to get involved in the whole creative process are really artists.

T he British singer has always been heavily involved with how her work is produced and created, including her own unique look. Twigs calls out other popstars for not being a part of the creative process because she believes it just makes them a canvas for corporations to use to make money. She explained:

“Imagine if you were an artist that wasn’t being herself. Imagine you’re an artist that didn’t know how to do your own makeup, didn’t know how to do your own hair, didn’t know how to put an outfit together, didn’t write your own music, didn’t direct your own videos, didn’t produce your own music. They’re not artists. They’re vehicles, vessels. The majority of them are like that… Imagine how hard that must be.”

Twigs says she still does her own makeup and hair from time to time, she believes it’s essential to be able to take care of yourself as an artist:

“I’m a traditional showgirl in a sense. I spent years of my early 20s working among performance artists. That’s rule one of being an underground artist: You do your own makeup, hair, and costumes.”

She’s okay with nudity but only if it has a genuine purpose behind it:

“Yes, when there is a purpose behind it. I feel frustrated when there isn’t. It’s also sad. Trust me, I could take a picture and my bum could look crazy, like a hip-hop honey, but that’s not reality. I used to get anxiety because of that…of what women think it is to be a woman.”
