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.

The best and most expert internet trolls are the ones who blur the line between reality and insanity. On Monday, as part of a new ad campaign for Adidas, the musician and all around pot-stirrer Grimes enlightened us with the most absurd daily routine we've heard since Mark Wahlberg publicised his ridiculous 2 am workout schedule earlier this year. The post is almost undoubtedly tongue-in-cheek, but there was one intriguing sentence that had the internet going: Wait, is that even possible? In the past few years, people have become increasingly concerned with the blue light that comes from electronic devices.

Amidst this blue light hysteria, it's not hard to imagine a future where some rich musician or tech bro decides to block it out entirely by slapping orange film on their eyeballs. Sure, it sounds like an extreme measure. But it's not actually as crazy as you might think at first.

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.
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?
