I've been listening to this girl for over a year now and I can't believe I never noticed how skinny she was until I saw this thread on here. I just never paid attention to her body wise/didn't expect her to be skinny!

Yeah same. I was shocked when I actually saw what she looked like. It was impressive.

Have you watched any of her videos? This one in particular... the comparison is stark.

She seems not to care about fashion and other people's/the society's opinion, doesn't dress to show off but dresses how she feels like and that impresses me tbh. Saw her live a few times and during one concert (back in 2012 but I don't think she changed much body wise) that tiny girl seemed to drown in her clothes. She didn't wear tide dresses which show off her figure, just some kind of comfy stuff and a camouflage bomber jacket but that impressed me so much more: she's just a perfect little package and doesn't put in any effort to be someone else like most of the celebs do.

On the other hand: Why am I not born with it like her? FML. :wtf:

Authenticity is alluring. I am absolutely obsessed with Claire Boucher's work as Grimes.

Although some of this could be age-related, her face has DEFINITELY slimmed:

Slimmer Grimes (no way this is just contouring makeup)

Her face seems to fluctuate shape - I'm trying to create a timeline of it to post here if it's wanted.


She wasn't the worst in high school. I was expecting a literal potato with more potatoes glued to it.

Interesting senior quote
Right?

Debating if it's a teenage edge-lord quote, or what.


But I do think I'd like to pass a bowl with Grimes on a long night. Or read her English essay on Notes from the Underground. There's a sort of innocent, genuine quality to her and I think her modus operandi for creating is fascinating. I'm excited to see how she exposes herself through her work as she sheds her youth (for example, Art Angels seems less creative and more informed by modern pop to me than her previous albums).

Oooohhh. So I don't really listen to her music, but I volunteered at a music festival earlier this year, and got to see her and helped prepare her rider. It was basically bunch of fresh organic fruit, kombucha, organic chocolate, tea, etc. She also requested a puppy to play with, which we unfortunately didn't give her haha.

Wow, sounds like fun volunteer work! :flower:

Thanks for sharing her eats! That sounds exactly like what I'd expect from her. Any other details?

Also, I found this interview snippet interesting, on food as a kid:

"Did you grow up in a strict home?
Very strict. I spent my teenage years running away from one house to the other house because it was so intense. Not just religious stuff. My dad was super-strict about food. I had to eat these weird protein shakes and he’d make us go on runs in the morning. I had to do ballet for a really long time. It was always working out and being serious about lots of things, really intensely. By the time I hit puberty, I kind of went insane."

And this one quote from another interview, very astute:

Well, the rate at which you can achieve things is amazing,” she shrugs. “If you are constantly confronting your worst fears you zoom through life.”

It was! It was quite fast-paced but very interesting and fun. I wish I could remember everything that was in it, but it was basically a lot of healthy organic food, mostly fresh produce. I also remember she requested that nothing be touched by plastic.

Hi yep I'm obsessed even more lately. Art Angel got me through finals.

Also, your input (thank you!!) mad me think of this:

Little update on Grimes here. After the massive backlash from "Go" and then having to redo her whole album because of it, I really hope her upcoming one is good!

Nice to see she's still tiny

I mean, last year she stated her album would be in absolute opposition to her current style, so it's not really surprising.

From interview:
"“I’m really vibing on making something really slow and gorgeous that just breathes...I feel like my work has always been fast paced, kinetic, and almost just manic and I feel like for me the hardest thing I can do is make something that’s slow and heavy."

She claims to have wanted to scrap the album as it wasn't up to her standards. I felt in Art Angels she was the most pop she'd ever been. I mean, I'll workout to Art Angels, but that's it. It's not paving new ground, which is exactly what she'd been doing in prior work.

Ok this is basically a mac commercial but I love how lanky she looks even though she's kind of short (5'4)


Also, Grimes dating Elon Musk is old news but still super entertaining.
