Grimes appeared on the latest episode of the Eric Andre Show on Adult Swim. In the segment titled “Grimes and Punishment”, she is tickled with a feather, exposed to melted candle wax, and “cheeseboarded” with liquid cheese from Kraft Punk. Check it out below.
In an interview with Complex, Andre stated that he invited her to the show after she discovered the lack of female musical guests. “I told her it’s because we always torture the musical guest,” he said. “I always hit them with bats or electrocute them. So it doesn’t look good when I want to torture a woman. And she says, “Yeah, that makes sense, but I want to do the show. Fuck it, you can torture me! ‘”
He later learned that Grimes was pregnant when the segment was filmed. “I said, ‘You just talked me into torturing a pregnant woman,’ he said.” And she said, ‘Yeah, but it was fucking great!’ “
She recently worked with an algorithmic mood music startup on a new collaborative project called “AI Lullaby”. In September, she shot an episode of Google Arts & Culture’s Art Zoom video series about Bruegel’s fall of the rebel angels. In May she sold a “fraction of her soul” at an online art exhibition.
