Grimes posts new pregnancy photo after Instagram removes
The musician, whose legal name was Claire Boucher and is maybe just “c” now, posted a photo to Instagram on Wednesday in which she appears to be pregnant. The Instagram post, which showed her nipples, was taken down, but she posted it on Twitter, too. She also posted a similar photo, but with her nipples covered by her braided hair, on Instagram after the original was removed. “Censored for insta haha – almost got away w it 😮,” reads the new photo’s caption.
The first Instagram post was caption-less, but she did speak to the “feral & war-like state of being” she feels while “knocked up” in a reply to a comment on the original post, so there is an extremely good chance pregnancy is truly what’s happening. She captioned her tweet with what one could describe as feral and war-like emoji.
Here’s the censored Instagram photo, which was also shared on Twitter, as seen above.
In case you forgot, Grimes is currently dating Elon Musk, but there’s no confirmation he’s the father. (Yes, they broke up in 2018, but they’re apparently back together.)
Instagram’s Community Guidelines prohibit “some photos of female nipples,” a longtime headache and artistic deterrent for people who do not possess the nebulous “male nipple.” (The rules do make exceptions for “post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding.”) Twitter has a more laissez-faire approach to nudity.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a celebrity pregnancy announcement without a bunch of Twitter jokes, especially when it’s a celebrity who met her boyfriend because they both love a scary AI thought experiment.
Elon Musk and Grimes’ gender reveal party is definitely gonna involve them blowing up the moon.
