Grimes has announced that she has “finally” caught COVID-19, possibly making her the first person ever to appear happy about catching the potentially-deadly virus.
In an Instagram story, the artist wrote: “Finally got COVID but weirdly enjoying the Dayquil fever dream.”
#NotSponsored??? Or at least, we sure hope so.
Grimes also linked to “Good Days” by SZA, for some reason.
Not really sure what’s “good” about testing positive for the coronavirus, but the song’s still a banger nonetheless.
And hey, it’s at least nicer to be enjoying Dayquil fever dreams than to be struggling to breathe in an ICU.
Grimes has a history of saying provocative shit as part of her cyberpunk-esque image. It’s almost the pandemic equivalent of the time she released billboards saying “global warming is good”.
Her partner Elon Musk – now the richest man in the world – also tested positive for a “mild” case of COVID-19 last year.
That was, of course, after he had been spreading misinformation about the pandemic online for months.
The coronavirus panic is dumb

Among other irresponsible anti-lockdown comments, Musk tweeted that “Sweden was right.” For those keeping track, things in Sweden are really not good.
Anyways, here’s wishing Grimes a speedy recovery. Let’s hope that all is well with Grimes, Musk and sweet baby X Æ A-Xii.
Enjoy your Dayquil fever dreams while they last.
