Grimes’ upcoming album is finished, and she may have a new body modification to go with it.
Grimes posted a photo of herself with medical wrap around her face and told fans she was finishing up the finishing touches on a new album while in a “plastic surgery clinic” after expressing interest in having pointed elf ears surgically implanted onto her head last month.
“I did something crazy!” the 34-year-old “Oblivion” performer tweeted alongside the selfie.
Grimes also updated fans on the status of her upcoming album, which will be the follow-up to 2020’s Miss Anthropocene and her first since becoming a mother to a son named X A-Xii, 2, and a daughter named Exa Dark Siderael, 8 months.
“We’re mixing the album now that it’s finished. My friend and I were perfecting the last song in the plastic surgery clinic because they wouldn’t let me leave, and we were laughing about how this was the most Hollywood moment of all time “Grimes went on to say that the album could be split into two parts. “Maybe BOOK 1 and BOOK 2? I have 20 songs. Choosing a format/tracklist.”
Soon after, she tweeted another update on the project’s status and seemed to hint at a potential song: “Just got a mix back for ‘the infinite assassin’ once my babies sleep I shall be checking mixes.”

Grimes took to Twitter last month to ask her followers to recommend “great/safe/reliable” doctors who could perform “vampire teeth caps” and “reputable elf ear modifiers,” though she later expressed reservations about the latter procedure. “I’m still debating this surgery because cartilage doesn’t heal, so permanent stitches are required,” she wrote.
“This surgery seems risky, especially as a musician, but I’ve wanted it my entire life,” the musician said in another tweet. “I’m curious about other people’s experiences!”
Grimes went on, “P.S. I apologize if it seems strange to discuss this openly; it just seems unhealthy how everyone in the media hides body mods, making people feel self-conscious. I’m also less interested in conventional beauty (I’ll keep my nose) – is there anything else that would make me look sick?”
The Juno Award winner revealed at the time that she scheduled an appointment with a “great” plastic surgeon two years ago because she “might want to change things up by her mid-30s.”
Also does anyone know anyone great/ safe/ reliable ppl who could do vampire teeth caps on me in Austin or la?
Also, any reputable elf ear modifiers in either of these cities? (Still debating this surgery cuz cartilage doesn’t heal so it requires permanent stitches)

Elon Musk, Grimes’ ex-boyfriend and the father of her children, however, chimed in with his own thoughts. In response to her inquiry, he tweeted, “The downside of elf ear surgery probably outweighs the upside.”
Throughout 2022, the “Flesh Without Blood” singer-songwriter has described her forthcoming album as a “space opera” and teased a “soon-to-be-ubiquitous-banger” created with The Weeknd called “Sci-Fi.”
“It’s a space opera about CLAIRE DE LUNE — an artificial courtesan who was implanted in a simulation that is a memory of the AI creation story on earth from the brain of the engineer who invented AI because he wants to relive his life but see if his perfect dream girl could teach him to love and thus he would preserve humanity this time rather than letting them fade into obscurity — overcome by the machines,” she previously teased of the album on Instagram,
