twigs, who has become a tabloid fixture in recent years following high-profile relationships with actors Robert Pattinson and Shia LaBeouf, recently told i-D about finding solace in Mary Magdalene's story. “I used to laugh to myself about how, as a woman, your story is often attached to the narrative of a man,” she told the magazine.

“No matter what you’re doing or how great your work is, sometimes it’s as though you have to be attached to a man to be validated. I’d felt like that at times. And then I started to read about Mary Magdalene and how amazing she was; how she was likely to have been Jesus’s best friend, his confidante. She was a herbalist and a healer, but, you know, her story is written out of the bible and she was ‘a prostitute’. I found a lot of power in the story of Mary Magdalene; a lot of dignity, a lot of grace, a lot of inspiration.”

Last week twigs announced a series of MAGDALENE tour dates. The headline tour hits North America in November.
