Grimes To Co-Host VMA Red Carpet For MTV Style

By Tom Breihan / August 21, 2013

Last week, Grimes ignited a minor internet shitstorm when she played stuff like Taylor Swift and Mariah Carey during a Boiler Room DJ set. Since we met her, she’s been a fascinating underground-experimental type who’s proud to proclaim her love of straight-up pop music. And Grimes’s latest gig will propel her completely out of the internet, quite possibly into face-to-face on-camera contact with the actual Taylor Swift and Mariah Carey. MTV Hive reports that Grimes, along with the fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, Grimes will co-host the MTV Style Red Carpet Report before this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards. The pre-show starts Sunday at 6PM, and now you have a reason to tune in early.
