Grimes shares photo of bandaged face after wanting elf ear surgery


Grimes has does “smthn crazy!”

The singer, 34, shared a picture of her bandaged face via Twitter on Saturday after previously telling fans she wanted to go under the knife for ‘elf ear’ surgery.

Fans quickly took to the replies section of her post to ask for confirmation if she had indeed followed the procedure.

“I hope she gets them, I’d be so excited!” one person wrote, with another adding, “DID YOU DONE THE EARS???”

“Omg who is your surgeon, you are amazing,” a third chimed in.

Others poked fun at the selfie by writing things like “Turn into an egg?”, “Is she craving attention?” and “mother what have you done…?”

Based on a series of tweets from mid-August, Grimes (real name: Claire Elise Boucher) seemed to be at least seriously considering surgery. The operation involves surgically sculpting the cartilage of a patient’s ears into the pointy shape widely associated with elven creatures throughout the fantasy genre.

She first teased the idea on Aug. 15, seeking feedback from followers who had undergone the original makeover.

“Also, has anyone done elf ear mods with good result? I’m afraid the cartilage in the ear is having trouble healing,” she tweeted at the time. “Especially as a musician, this operation seems risky, but I’ve wanted it all my life. Curious people’s experiences!”

The next day, his ex Elon Musk jumped in the wire with a bit of literal snark in mind.

“The downside of an elf’s ear surgery probably outweighs the upside,” the 51-year-old SpaceX CEO said.

Grimes responded wistfully. “Tbh, this looks like a job to tense up. Sad to be born a few generations too early 🧝🏻‍♀️😪🧝🏻‍♀️”, she tweetedreferring to the revolutionary gene-editing biotechnology CRISPR, capable of strategically modifying the genetic code of a human individual.

Later, responding to a fan’s tweet featuring a series of digital avatars with elf ears in his image on August 17, Grimes wrote“Wow I love these whores.”
