Lana Del Rey has interviewed Grimes about her new album Miss Anthropocene in a brand new piece for Interview. After a quick dialogue of their respective whereabouts, Lana asks Grimes, “Do you’re feeling just like the songs are extra private, or have they got the overculture weighing on them?” Grimes replies:
A little bit of each. I’m actually obsessive about polytheism. I really like how the
historic Greeks or the traditional Egyptians lived on this bizarre anime
world the place there have been simply tons of gods that may very well be something. It’s
like each type of struggling had a illustration. I ponder if it
virtually has a optimistic psychological impact. In case your child dies in a conflict,
you’ll be able to actually go communicate to Conflict and be like, “Why did you do that?”
Or, “I hope you probably did this for a motive.” There’s a bizarre philosophical
justification for all ache, and there’s an anthropomorphization of
each type of ache. In our present society, we don’t even know
discuss issues. So my album’s a few trendy demonology or a contemporary
pantheon the place each tune is a few totally different technique to endure or a
totally different technique to die. If you concentrate on it, god-making or
god-designing simply appears so enjoyable. The thought of creating the Goddess of
Plastic appears so enjoyable to me.
Later, they focus on faith and mysticism (“Mysticism is an evolutionary byproduct. I feel we’re inherently spiritual, even when we’re not explicitly spiritual,” Grimes says.), collaborating with different feminine artists, writing whereas in love, and extra.
Grimes additionally spoke with Brit Marling for the Interview piece. Amongst their matters of dialog is synthetic intelligence, with Grimes telling Marling, “What scares me is a synthetic intelligence getting on-line, seeing all people’s search historical past, after which blackmailing all of us into doing no matter it needs. It simply feels inevitable. We’ve all despatched bizarre e-mails or texts. Even when there are legal guidelines to stop that, there’ll finally be a sentient know-how that’s sensible sufficient and powerful sufficient and has entry to take everybody’s shit, after which could make anybody do no matter it needs, Jeffrey Epstein–model.”
