Elon Musk & Grimes’ Baby Can’t Be Named X Æ A-12 In California

Elon Musk and Grimes welcomed their beautiful baby boy X Æ A-12 into the world this week, and then proceeded to immediately ruin everything by naming him X Æ A-12. Maybe. Although they're probably just trolling -- remember when Grimes said that she got part of her eye removed to eliminate … More »

Grimes Explains Baby X Æ A-12’s Name

Did Grimes and Elon Musk really name their son X Æ A-12, or is it all a ruse and the baby is really named Jason or something? For now, given that both Musk and Grimes have confirmed the X Æ A-12 name on Twitter, we will assume it's really the child's … More »

Actress Hailee Steinfeld Does A Decent Pop Star Impersonation

Hailee Steinfeld was precocious from the start. At just 14 years old, Steinfeld scored an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the Coen brothers' 2010 True Grit remake.

Rina Sawayama – “Bad Friend”

Rina Sawayama is just two days from dropping SAWAYAMA, her debut album. The Niigata-born, London-based singer seems to be delving into some heavy aughts nostalgia on the album, sometimes by blending pop with nu-metal in a way that connects the dots between Grimes and Evanescence. On new single "Bad Friend," though, she scales back the … More »

The Forecast Is Improving For Niall Horan

Boy bands break up because the boys in them grow up. Other reasons surely factor in sometimes, like conflict and exhaustion and breakout stars going solo, but there's a certain range between adolescence and middle age in which continuing in a boy band feels like arrested development. This is not a permanent condition. The likes … More »

Grimes - "Idoru" (Singles Going Steady)

Mick Jacobs: The introduction resembles a city theme from an episode of Pokemon, just as Ash and co. reach the precipice that overlooks the town below. Grimes will always be a bit of a weeaboo with a penchant for quite otherworldly, yet comforting productions. The thing dragging this track down are lines like "You're so cool/ 'cause you don't think you're cool." How old are we? [5/10]Michael Elliott: Grimes' ebullience is intoxicating and contagious. The term "sunny pop" may be cliche, but th...

Grimes' 'Miss Anthropocene' Watches the World Go Out With a Whimper

If an entire album in the vein of "4 ÆM" might've come off as disingenuous -- too gimmicky or light-hearted to capture the current feeling toward global collapse -- "We Appreciate Power" is the true tease of the bunch. It's still a song about meltdown and apathy, but Grimes is the arbiter, not the subject, and she plays a far more convincing overlord than an underling.Keep Reading

Grimes Tried to Make a Soundtrack for the End of the World. The Result Is Surprisingly Timid

This is how the human race ends: with the shallow clang of metal on metal, a squalling screech, the heavy stomp and throb of percussion. At least, that’s how the A.I. revolution goes down in “We Appreciate Power,” an arresting single by Canadian art-pop eminence Grimes with help from frequent collaborator HANA. Surprising contrasts are a trademark of Grimes’ songwriting and production, and on this track she cuts the harshness of the beat with vocals that whisper, coo and cajole despite the ...

Pop star, producer or pariah? The conflicted brilliance of Grimes

Claire Boucher has spent a decade battling the press to reclaim her reputation. Dating Elon Musk means she’s never been more controversial – but could her new album set her free?Grimes has always had a tortured relationship with visibility. No sooner had Claire Boucher broken beyond the Montreal warehouse scene at the turn of the 2010s than she was telling journalists that she only fronted her music because she couldn’t afford to hire someone to do it for her. She wanted to be Phil Spector – tho...
