Published Jan 08, 2020Grimes continues to tease her upcoming Miss_Anthropocene album, which we've counted among our most anticipated releases of 2020, but that might not be the only thing she births into the world. After all, she shared a pregnancy announcement via her social media.
While we're still trying to decrypt the accompanying emojis — not to mention the fact that the images were edited to look like something out of Avatar 2 — it appears as though Grimes is announcing that she's with child:
The image also arrived on Instragram, where she wrote the following in the comments and confirmed her pregnancy:
I thought about censoring them for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is so much less feral without the nipples. Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is. Plus most of my friends told me not to post them so then I was afflicted with reverse psychology. Interrogated my shame on it and decided it was sum weird internalized self hatred to feel uncomfortable abt my body. Hope ur having a nice day!
UPDATE: Grimes' original Instagram post has been removed, but she has now uploaded a slightly edited version.
Again, without making assumptions, the potential baby is likely with Elon Musk, the notorious Tesla billionaire with whom Grimes has been romantically linked to since 2018.
We send our congratulations to Grimes — and we can't wait to find out what she names the child.
Miss Anthropocene arrives February 21 via 4AD.
