    + In an interview with the New York Times, FKA Twigs spoke about her struggle with the recent media attention, a result of her engagement to Robert Pattinson. “It’s really hard — I can’t begin to explain how awful it is,” she said. “It makes you want to just stop everything sometimes. It makes you want to smash your face into the mirror.” She also addressed the racist social media remarks targeted toward her: “It’s relentless. There’s no amount of songs I can sing or dances I can dance that will prove to them I’m not a monkey.” Still, Twigs’ relationship has its upsides. “I didn’t see my life going this way at all,” she said. “But it’s worth it. I’m so happy.”

    + In case you were sleeping, Taylor Swift dropped her star-studded “Bad Blood” music video last night. And, yes, it is epic.
