      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.

      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.
