After Poppy came forward about some of the drama that happened behind the scenes while recording “Play Destroy,” Grimes has come out with a story of her own. The electro-pop artist claims that Poppy put her in a “disgusting situation.”
On her since-deleted Instagram story, Grimes said that she no longer wants to work with the YouTube cyborg-turned popstar. She also hinted that Poppy and her team leaked “Play Destroy.”
“Poppy, you dragged me into a disgusting situation and won’t stop punishing me for not wanting to be a part of it,” Grimes says. “I don’t want to work with you, you leaked the song anyway. u got what you want. Let it go.”
Additionally, the pop artist said that responding to the feud between her and Poppy is unlike her.
“I feel stupid responding, I hate tabloidy drama, I’ll delete this shortly but just defending myself,” Grimes says. “Would love if we could all just get back to work.”

“I was kind of bullied into submission by [Grimes] and her team of self-proclaimed feminists,” she says. “We planned the song coming out months ago, and she was preventing it. I got to watch her bully songwriters into signing NDA and not taking credit for songs that they were a part of. She doesn’t practice what she preaches.”
She continued on by saying that is was “disheartening” to work with someone that was different behind the scenes, saying:
“It’s really upsetting to work with a female that is very outward about a topic, but behind closed doors, it’s the complete opposite. It’s actually very disheartening to people that are actually feminists and supporters of other females.”
Grimes recently released a new song called “We Appreciate Power.” She additionally collaborated with Bring Me The Horizon on their forthcoming album amo.
