Here’s former ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson hanging out with his girlfriend, FKA Twigs. The two went out for lunch in LA. Robert even got a little “handsy” with his girlfriend in front of the cameras. After a recent interview FKA Twigs gave, they seem well-suited for each other to me. RELATED: Robert Pattinson has a new girlfriend.
FKA Twigs, who is a singer, told Rolling Stone she has no desire to be famous.
I’m not thirsty. I’m not a pop star. I don’t want to reign over all forever. I don’t want to be famous! It makes me feel sick, the thought of being a famous person. It’s just not me. I’m the happiest when I’m in the studio, not on a beauty parade.”
That seems to be very much how Robert feels about being a movie star. On one hand, I can understand. Since the world found out FKA Twigs was dating Robert, people sent her racists messages via twitter.
It was all this crazy, racist abuse out of nowhere. But if you’re an artist, you have to use everything to your advantage, even the pain.”
She responded on twitter with a statement of her own.
I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week. Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”
Hear, hear! Good for her for standing up for herself. Racism is unacceptable in any form.
Yet I have to wonder, with both her and Robert, if they hate fame so much, then WHY do things that put them in the spotlight? I mean, you can act, and sing, without becoming a high profile entertainer. Dating a high-profile entertainer is one way to raise your own profile (which is why Jessica Chastain, for example, won’t date other celebrities). It just all seems a tad bit disingenuous to me.
