To announce her new campaign with Adidas and Stella McCartney, Grimes took to Instagram on Monday to share the answer she apparently gave when Adidas asked her about her workout routine. Spoiler alert: It includes up to two hours of swordplay a day and experimental eye surgery. To wind down from this I spend minutes on an inclined hike at roughly Lew has previously tweeted about working with Grimes, so that at least checks out. But it was when the Art Angels artist went on to say that she replaced part of her eyeball with plastic to cure seasonal depression that fans began to really question whether or not she was trolling them.

According to... science.
Her " approach to fitness," as she put it, involved two to four hours in a deprivation tank to help her "astro-glide," one to two hours sword fighting with her trainer, and a good 20 minutes of just, you know, screaming. If there was a tip-off that the whole thing was a joke, it came in the penultimate paragraph of the Instagram post, in which Boucher described an optical procedure she'd recently undergone. But experimental eye surgery seemed like a step too far. Nikole Karlis of Salon has taken Boucher at least partly at her word this morning. Shockingly, all of them them think that it is, in a word, bullshit. Let this be both a footnote to what was most likely a pretty funny joke from Grimes, and also one of the most unnecessary instances of speaking "on the condition of anonymity" in the history of journalism.
— Singer says she had ocular implant to remove blue light from her vision
And then there's the headlines she made this week about her intense workout regimen while announcing that she's the face of the upcoming Stella McCartney Adidas campaign. The intense routine reportedly includes sword-fighting , sensory deprivation "astro-gliding" scream therapy and an alleged eye surgery that raised some serious questions. The "We Appreciate Power" singer said that she "eliminated all blue light from my vision through an experimental surgery that removes the top film of my eyeball and replaces it with an orange ultra-flex polymer" as a means of curing seasonal depression. Is that a thing? Billboard reached out to Dr. Sunir J. The reality, though, according to Garg, is that humans have been exposed to blue light since life began on Earth and the sudden concern about it is "overblown" at best.
Berman, MD, and Mark S. Claire Elise Boucher, 31, known professionally as Grimes, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, record producer, and visual artist. Since , Boucher has been in a relationship with technology entrepreneur Elon Musk. Grimes recently became the star of a new Adidas advertising campaign. In announcing this new collaboration, Grimes took to Instagram July 15 to talk about her training regimen. After 45 minutes of stretching, she heads to her studio where "my mind and body are functioning at peak level, with a neuroplastic goal between This is enough to get most people to say "Huh? Whether Grimes was just joking or if she really did undergo experimental surgery, it brought a few interesting questions to mind: What harm is caused by blue light? Are there consequences in removing blue light from a person's vision?
