Grimes has posted her first selfie after appearing to undergo plastic surgery, sparking concern among some of her fans.
The 34-year-old singer, whose real name is Claire Boucher, recently shared a photo of her bandaged face, writing: “I did smthn crazy!”
She then said she’d spent time in a ‘plastic surgery clinic’, where she had managed to work on some new material, writing: “Album is done we’re mixing. My friend and I perfected the last song in the plastic surgery clinic cuz they wouldn’t let me leave and we were laughing that this was the most Hollywood moment of all time. I have 20 songs so maybe BOOK 1 and BOOK 2? Deciding format/tracklist.”
Now she has posted another photo on Twitter, leaving some people questioning why and how her face appears to have changed so drastically.
She asked followers: “R selfies obsolete yet? I am very seriously considering getting a white ink tattoo on my face next week Any thoughts? It feels like it’s time.”

As some pointed out that the photo seemingly served as confirmation that she didn't get 'elf ears' as speculated, many other people stepped forward to offer up suggestions, with one saying ‘Nordic symbols look really good on a face’ and have ‘beautiful meanings’, to which she replied: “Where can I find such things? Or good resources? Yeh have been thinking either some ancient languages or fictional language.”
Another warned white ink often fades and ends up looking like a ‘pale thin scar’, but Grimes said she liked that ‘look’ as well.
One said it's not something they would do, but urged the star to simply do what feels 'best' for her, with some also echoing that it was all down to personal choice.
However, a number of people asked if she was ‘okay’, while another said: “You don’t look like you anymore.”
Someone else agreed: “Very sad.”
One asked: “What has she done to her face?”
Another wrote: “Please no... Avoid any permanently altering procedures undertaken under a fleeting whim. It solidifies the whim into your reality. It is no longer a whim and becomes either a commitment or a burden. Be free.”
Someone also added: “Girl what are you doing to your beautiful face with the fillers? No!!! Face tattoos yes!!”
