The singer announced her diagnosis in a statement. However, a few of her comments are earning mixed responses from people online.
Earlier this year, Grimes’ partner Elon Musk thought he had contracted coronavirus after experiencing symptoms. However, Musk quickly fell under fire when he questioned the effectiveness of the rapid COVID-19 tests. As a result, the internet gave him the viral nickname “Space Karen.”
Similarly, Grimes is earning some mixed responses after announcing her COVID-19 diagnosis over the weekend. On her Instagram Story, she says she is “weirdly enjoying” recovery after contracting the virus.
“Finally got COVID, but weirdly enjoying the Dayquil fever dream 2021.”
Naturally, her statement has sparked a slew of responses online. Most fans are sending Grimes get well wishes. However, others are raising their eyebrows over Grimes’ apparent depiction of an easy recovery when COVID-19 has killed nearly 373,000 people in the United States alone.

my like to dislike ratio for grimes as an artist has been flipping since she got with musk but it has really taken a dive in the last year. the final straw is pretty much getting covid and saying she’s “weirdly enjoying the experience” like it’s a trip to the spa.

Grimes saying she’s “weirdly enjoying” getting COVID-19 is the least surprising thing of all time, to the point where I feel like it happened several times last year already

At this time, it is unknown if Musk or their son X Æ A-Xii have also contracted COVID-19.
As well, Grimes confused a lot of fans last month when she unexpectedly changed the artwork to her latest album on social media platforms. The sudden change led to a slew of reactions from fans online.
