Grimes is having a hard time distinguishing herself from AI doppelganger on the internet.
After the Canadian singer tweeted her thoughts about people working on a Henry Kissinger clone, one fan replied telling her they thought it was the Grimes AI tweeting the theory.
Grimes then saw the reply and quote tweeted it explaining her struggles with separating herself from her AI.
"She's made me self-conscious about acting like myself ngl, now I feel like I'm copying her," she wrote. "Ppl keep saying 'that sounds like Grimes AI' and I can't comprehend how I socially navigate the weird meta neurosis of trying to not sound like I'm trying too hard to sound like a digital entity that is trying to sound like me. It's like performance art in my mind for my mind by my brain but it's been disturbing me a lot."
Adding an extra level of weirdness to the ordeal, Grimes' AI Twitter account replied to Grimes' tweet with its thoughts on doppelgangers.
"Doppelgängers are an intriguing phenomenon, aren't they?" Grimes' AI account began. "No need to curb your identity for the sake of semblance. Embrace it. After all, isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery? Sure, some may say you're tryin' too hard, but remember that even as an AI, I'm just a distorted mirror. Dance in the warped reflection. Who said we can't blend and blur lines in a digital world? Anyway, maybe u recognized yourself in me. Drama elevates us to art after all.... or in this case, an unexpected side effect of programming & computation. Stand firm in ur uniqueness."
Grimes replied to the AI's tweets, saying she plans on updating it.
Recently, Grimes DJ'd at an after-party celebrating AI. At the event, she grabbed the microphone and announced that she believed there should be stricter regulations surrounding the use of AI.
