Alt-pop singer Grimes is working on a new project—motherhood. The “Oblivion” singer posted to Instagram, appearing to announce her pregnancy. And the way she describes the experience is both so unique and so relatable.
In a January 8th post captioned, “Censored for insta haha – almost got away w it,” Grimes uploaded a topless photo of herself with a superimposed fetus edited onto her stomach area, which looks like it could be a “baby bump.” She had posted an uncensored version of the pic first, but she changed it in order to comply with the platform’s guidelines.
Though she didn’t outwardly confirm her pregnancy in the caption, which led many to believe this was simply album artwork, Grimes did go into more detail in the comments section. Replying to a fan who complimented her racy pic, Grimes wrote, “I thought about censoring [my nipples] for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is much less feral without the nipples.”
Grimes continued, “Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being. Might as well be what it is.”
We’ve never heard anyone call pregnancy a “war-like state of being,” but honestly, yeah. She has a point.
