In a time where one in five Los Angeles residents have contracted the virus, Grimes has revealed that she’s caught COVID-19.
“Finally got COVID but enjoying the Dayquil fever dream,” Grimes (a.k.a. Claire Boucher) wrote in her post.
Fans of her music have taken to Twitter to share their reactions to her diagnosis:

2021 has already been an eventful year for the electro-pop sensation, with the artist dropping a Rave edition of her 2020 album Miss Anthropocene. In addition to the release of her album, the artist scored a voice acting role in the hugely-hyped video game Cyberpunk 2077, where she plays a suicidal pop-star, joining the likes of Hollywood star Keanu Reeves and Swedish hardcore punk band Refused.
