FKA Twigs Had An Imaginary Kangaroo While Growing Up & Shut Him In Her Wardrobe

FKA Twigs holds onto her dog after dining out at Urth Caffe with a friend in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon (August 31).

The 27-year-old musician recently talked with NPR about her childhood in rural England and having freedom in just about everything.

“I think I’ve always been somebody who’s lived in my head. I’m a huge daydreamer, so it’s more that I would just make up stories in my mind, and make up games. When I was a kid, I had an imaginary kangaroo — and when I got a bit older, I shut him in my wardrobe and he didn’t come out again,” she shared. “I started to go to dance class, and then I’d spend my time after school making up dances and dressing up. But I think that’s the thing about the country: There isn’t that much to do, so you’re really encouraged, and forced in a way, to use your imagination to make games.”

FKA added, “My early years of … [childhood] were pretty close to perfect; I couldn’t really have wanted for much more. You’ve got the outdoors and you’ve got nature, and you don’t have the threat of a big city. My mom was never worried about me going outside and playing in the street. In many ways, I was allowed a lot of freedom, which allowed for a lot of creative freedom as well.”
