Grimes & Riff Raff

Last week, we learned the exciting news that Grimes, along with fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, would co-host MTV Style’s VMA red carpet show. Sadly, we did not get one single glimpse of Claire Boucher on the network’s official pre-show. But Grimes stayed busy filming on-camera interviews for the web. There was the much-blogged-about moment where she and 2 Chainz discovered that they were wearing the same Versace sweatpants, and then there was the laundry list of luminaries who Boucher talked to: Riff Raff, Lil Kim, 30 Seconds To Mars, Snooki, Richard Simmons, and a ton of others. Watch video evidence below. (Warning: It gets messy, and Antonoff does most of the talking. Also, they both try on Travi$ Scott’s grill, which ew.)

I feel like Riff Raff deserves some sort of prize for being nicest to Grimes, and Jordan Catalano deserves a stern warning for hitting on her. Also, next year’s Video Vanguard award should go to Grimes’ “it’s really cool to meet you” face.

  1. HAHAHAHA what? Grimes wearing the same garb as 2 Chainz? Not entirely sure if she was on drugs or just meets everyone like a 12 year old…

  2. WTF. Leto could have been a little less lecherous to La Boucher. I would’ve needed a shower after that exchange.

  3. If Grimes could just walk around asking me questions, my life would probably be much cheerier.

  4. This makes me think of when Grimes commented on that Dead Girlfriends’ feed on this here Stereogum a few weeks ago…I was so proud to be in on that Internet fight :’)
