Although she’s often caught up in the Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart tabloid grist machine, her music stands on its own.
Twigs, 27, real name Tahliah Barnett, has been criticized by some for allegedly riding Pattinson’s coattails to fame.
She left no doubt about her talent on the show. She’s actually known as a performance artist. But her voice was soaring, deeply emotional and clear as a bell.
She also showed off some sultry moves with a fellow dancer.
“Radio 1 Live” often invites artists on and has them perform songs by other artists.
Twigs released a new EP titled M3LL155X Aug 13. The five track set includes two singles released earlier this year and three new songs. It’s her third extended play disc.
Her debut studio album LP1 was released last year and won raves from music critics. It hit No. 16 on the UK Albums Chart and No 30 on U.S. pop charts.
Sia’s “Elastic Heart” video caused an uproar because 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler was paired with 28-year-old Shia LaBeouf in an erotic dance.
