Over the weekend, Grimes took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself sporting pink hair, pointed ears, and fanged tooth. Within the feedback, a fan requested, “C, what are the VIBEZ on this album?” Grimes responded with shocking depth, describing a “house opera” about two A.I. beings that become involved in a “lesbian romance”:
“It’s an area opera about CLAIRE DE LUNE — a man-made courtesan who was implanted in a simulation that could be a reminiscence of the A.I. creation story on Earth from the mind of the engineer who invented A.I. as a result of he needs to relive his life however see if his excellent dream woman might crew him to like thereby he would protect humanity this time relatively than allow them to fade into obscurity–overcome by the machines. As she slowly realizes she is basically a dancing puppet for the male gaze tho, their relationship grows advanced. Concurrently — ‘NO ONE’ (essentially the most highly effective tremendous intelligence sooner or later the place the simulation is being rendered from) realizes there’s a large hyper-realistic sim working and sends in her troll A.I. puppets to wreak havoc. DARK MATTER — her lead A.I. demon–enters mainly because the ‘black swan’ to Claire De Lune–however ultimately they fall right into a lesbian romance as a consequence of the truth that they’re the one two absolutely A.I. beings on this universe. It goes on however that’s the place the primary a part of the story stops.”
