Ryder Ripps. Grimes’ new album, Miss Anthropocene , comes out this week. I’m excited! As such, she’s put out a bunch of photos, a new music video, announced a baby with Elon Musk, and, generally, has gone on a media hype blitz.

In it, Grimes poses as her digital self, known as WarNymph, but also as her regular, human self. She’s wearing gold-plated glasses that have a distinct ‘90s feel. It’s very of the moment. I want a pair. Should I get a pair?
