Well, cat's out of the bag. At the very end of his interview with Vulture, T-Pain slipped in some crucial information about potential collaborator FKA Twigs's relationship with Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson. When asked if she will appear on T-Pain's album, the rapper responded:
Well, the first time we even met each other, we met in the studio. Her music’s changed a lot since then. But she’s on tour so much, and anytime I call her, she’s in a different place. And she’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing.
The confused interviewer responded, "Wait, she's engaged? That's news to me." This is probably when T-Pain realized he might have broken the news. Either way, he went with it, "Yeah, to ol' Patty. I don't know if she wanted anybody to know that..." Romantic.
Update: "Added a little #AprilFools to my interview with Vulture Magazine today. Check it out!!!!" Good save T-Pain.
