FKA Twigs Is Paper Magazine's October Cover Star

"I just like working hard and learning things."

For Paper magazine's October issue, FKA Twigs takes centre stage.

In the "Nowstalgia" issue shot by Paola Kudacki, FKA Twigs, a self-proclaimed "country girl," shares a candid interview that presents her vulnerability and boldness beautifully. Most notably in the public eye for her secretive relationship with fiance, Robert Pattinson, who she has no interest in talking about, the 27-year old reveals to the glossy that she wants to have kids one day and that she have no desire to be a part of Taylor Swift's squad.

"I think Taylor Swift is great, but I wouldn't necessarily think, 'Oh my god, I have to be friends with her,'" the British star admits. "When I meet fans, they're quite creative and intelligent, kind, sensitive."

FKA (born as Tahliah Barnett), flaunts her toned body in an black slimming American Apparel bodysuit paired with Vivienne Westwood lace-up platforms for the cover. The British artist has been known for marching to the beat of her own drum, telling Paper she's "quite traditional." The performer, a former backup dancer for Kylie Minogue and Ed Sheeran, is decked out in Stella McCartney, Simone Rocha and Chanel for the remaining of the black and white spread.

The duration of the interview goes on to discuss the songstress' bravery and doing whatever the eff she wants to do: "Me and my mates, we do whatever we wanna do. And actually, I think there's something quite punk about that."

FKA Twigs, we salute you.

The issue hits stands on Oct. 20th.

UPDATE: Oct. 13, 2015 - This post has been updated to refer to the artist by her full name, FKA Twigs.
