THIS WEEK, IT’S been widely reported that Robert Pattinson – the artist formerly known as R-Pattz – has moved on from ex-fiancé fka Twigs.

The actor is said to be smitted with singer Mabel, if you’re to believe what’s written in the Daily Mirror.

A source disclosed:

Rob looked smitten with Mabel and they spent two nights glued to each other [at Londong Fashion Week].
They were practically inseparable at the Vogue party at Annabel’s, and again the following night at a Miu Miu fashion party where Rob was trying to be really low key. Their friendship has blossomed from there.”

Very interesting.

But in the words of Nikki Grahame – “who is she?” Let’s find out.

For starters, she is a deadly singer.

She has some strong opinions on the power dynamics in R&B – especially concerning gender.

She told The Fader:

Very often in R&B, men are telling women they need to chill, [saying] “I’m not looking for a girlfriend.” And actually, I’ve been in so many situations with men where I’m just like, “You need to chill!” It happens to everyone. I wanted to tell that side of the story.”

She doesn’t take her parents’ immense reputations for granted – but also knows what she’s capable of beyond her family ties.

Speaking to Go London, she said:

“I didn’t tell anybody who my parents were at first [...] I was influenced and inspired by [my parents’] work ethic, but we kept it really separate. There’s a difference between admiring them and copying them. I really wanted to find my own path.”

She’s playing Longitude this summer.

No idea on what day yet, but well worth checking her out if you’re heading for the weekend!
