Beefs 2014: Grimes Accuses Ariel Pink of "Delusional Misogyny" Over Madonna Comments
Ariel Pink claimed that he has contributed songwriting to Madonna's forthcoming album, but he also had some less-than-glowing things to say about the pop icon. In response to these comments, Grimes took Pink to task on Twitter.

UPDATE: Madonna's manager Guy Oseary has denied Ariel Pink is involved with Madge's new album, saying she "has no interest in working with mermaids."
