All The New Attention

Grimes: “I don’t know. It still doesn’t feel big. I don’t read my press. I read my press for a day because I was sick in bed and I was just utterly horrified. I read it for 20 minutes and freaked out. I made a New Year’s resolution that I would never read my press again. I’ll never read it again.

“I just say so much stupid stuff in interviews and people make really mean comments. I just don’t want to know because it’s out of my control at that time. It’s not the art that I’m making it’s the way journalists interpret it. They tend to interpret it poorly. Not that you’re going to interpret it poorly or anything. There was an article like ‘Grimes says she needs drugs to make music.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s horrible.’ How could you write that? That’s not what I said at all.”
