Singer FKA Twigs says she hates to be called quirky and different.
The 26-year-old ‘Two Weeks’ singer said she felt ‘sucked dry’ when she worked as a backing dancer for artists like Jessie J and Kylie Minogue because she was hired for her unconventional appearance and no longer wants to be made to feel ‘uncomfortable’, reported Contactmusic.
I was the ‘quirky and androgynous’ girl. If anyone says I’m quirky ever again, I’ll throw up on myself. I guess I just felt really disconnected from myself. You’re making someone else’s dream happen by selling yourself and them boxing you into the ‘alternative kooky dancer’ role. You just feel a bit sucked dry.
“I think that’s why I’m so determined in what I’m doing. It’s why I’ll never be made to feel uncomfortable again. I spent so many years feeling uncomfortable, but at the same time, I earned a lot,” she said.
