Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs were photographed [surprise, surprise] on a beach in Florida on Sunday, just hours after they were spotted together at Art Basel. Now, I know people will say that the paparazzi usually swarm Florida around Art Basel time, or that there’s simply no way that Robert Pattinson would ever call the paparazzi. But you know what? Robert Pattinson’s behavior – especially regarding his ‘relationship’ with FKA Twigs – hasn’t really been matching up to the Robert Pattinson we know from the past four years. It could be that he’s one of those dudes who changes their entire personality and behavior based on the girl they’re dating, which would make a lot of sense. He was emo and hipster and hated the media while dating Kristen Stewart, and while he’s still emo and hipster, he’s now all about the famewhoring.
We’re not going to insult his intelligence and pretend that he doesn’t know what’s going on when the paparazzi are always getting dime photos of him and FKA Twigs holding hands, kissing, or grabbing each other’s butts. Neither Rob nor FKA is stupid, and pretending otherwise is just delusional. They know full well that the media interest in their relationship will only improve FKA’s already burgeoning career, and they know that Rob’s association with her is a big part of that. It becomes obvious when FKA goes from barely filling out a 200-person concert a few months ago to landing Rolling Stones interviews and selling out 1000+ stadiums. And whaddya know – FKA and Rob just happened to go public with their romance two months ago.
What’s especially hypocritical is FKA Twigs holding a book to cover her face on the beach, as though she wants to be hidden from the paparazzi. Girl, please. Even if you didn’t call the paparazzi this time, don’t pretend as though covering your face does anything at all. Everyone knows it’s you behind that book, and everyone knows that you’re with Rob – which is exactly the way you want it, I’m sure.
