Grimes just might be pranking fans with claim of removing top film of her eyeball

      Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes, a.k.a. Claire Boucher, has a keen interest in science.

      But is it true that Juno winner eliminated all blue light from her vision through experimental surgery to remove the top film of her eyeball?

      That's a claim she made on Instagram after signing on to an Adidas campaign with Stella McCartney.

      The ultra-cool Grimes even claimed that this film was replaced with an "orange ultra-flex polymer", which she and a friend made in a lab.

      Why, you may ask? 

      To cure seasonal depression.

      ADIDAS: Tell us about ur training regimen ? GRIMES: My training is a 360 approach. I first maintain a healthy cellular routine where I maximize the function of my mitochondria with supplements such as NAD+, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Magnesium, etc. This helps promote ATP and it’s incredibly visceral. From that point I spend 2-4 hours in my deprivation tank, this allows me to “astro-glide” to other dimensions - past, present, and future. In the afternoons I do a 1-2 hour sword fighting session with my trainer, James Lew, we go over the fundamentals that work the obliques, core stabilizes, and triceps as well as a few tricks. To wind down from this I spend 30-45 minutes on an inclined hike at roughly 4-4.5 miles per hour, arguably the most efficient workout. I then spend 45 minutes stretching before heading into the studio where my mind and body are functioning at peak level, with a neuroplastic goal between 57.5 and 71.5 AphC’s (which is my preferred range for my blood type). I’ve outfitted my studio with the highest grade of red light. It is pretty much 1000 sqf IR Sauna. Hana then comes over and we do a screaming session for 20-25 minutes while I slow boil the honey tea that maximizes vocal proficiency. I have also 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 that my friend and I made in the lab this past winter as a means to cure seasonal depression. I go to bed with a humidifier on. #asmc #adidasparley #createdwithadidas #gentrifymordor

      It may be a bunch of hooey, but it's certainly attracted attention for the athletic-wear company.

      Isn't that what a good celebrity pitch is supposed to do?

      Fun fact: Grimes's mother is Vancouver writer Sandy Garossino.

      Another fun fact: Grimes was once the subject of a lengthy profile in the New Yorker.

      She's also won Junos for Video of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and Electronic Album of the Year. And she's provided moral support to those battling the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

      But the musician is best known in the tabloid world for dating tech billionaire Elon Musk.
