Robert Pattinson's fiancee FKA twigs might not have bagged any award at the recent MTV Video Music Awards but a big accolade came her way on Monday night when she won Independent Track of the Year award at the 2015 AIM Independent Music Awards in Derby, England.
Twigs won the award for her track, “Two Weeks,” which is from her debut full-length album “LP1.” The British singer, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, was dressed in an all black, full-sleeve dress as she accepted the award. She parted her hair sideways and coloured her lips in her trademark red lipstick. Check out the picture here.
The “Glass & Patron” singer was ecstatic after her award and said she is grateful to her “creative family.”
"It means so much, I am an artist I take great pride in how much I do myself," twigs told BBC after her win. "I write, produce and direct my videos and my creative family are all people that I know, so to be here and be acknowledged for that just makes me really grateful."
AIM Independent Music Awards celebrates artists who release their own music and the winners are chosen by experts from the industry. Other big winners of the night were Scottish pop band Young Fathers and British rock band Enter Shikari.
London-based “modern soul musical collective” Jungle also won the PPL Award For Most Played New Independent Act, which was handed to them by former Oasis band member and English musician Noel Gallagher.
