Grimes is set to release a new album titled Book 1 in 2022. However, after that, the experimental musician is apparently considering a career change.
Before you got too worried, she told fans that she doesn’t leave the music behind. However, the hit-maker “Violence” took to Twitter to make it very clear that she was fed up with being a celebrity.
“Celebrity culture is stifling,” Grimes wrote to his 1.2 million followers. “I don’t stop the music, but I definitely change my main job after BOOK 1. She added that “the music industry feels old and tired” and “depends on archaic systems.”

What’s next for Grimes? Fans offered a few recommendations in the comments section, and she weighed in on a couple.
For starters, it’s pretty safe to rule out a potential second act as a Twitch streamer. Grimes quickly rejected this popular recommendation.
“I was not gna [sic] become a twitch streamer, “she wrote. There was a reason for that decision, however:” I think public speaking is my weakness. “
Grimes played with the idea of introducing the concept of “Homo techno”. What is it exactly ? We’ll have to wait and see because it wasn’t super clear.
This isn’t the first time the musician has criticized celebrity culture.
Earlier this year, she photographed walking around Los Angeles, reading a copy of Karl Marx The Communist Manifesto and wear a costume that looked like it came from a post-apocalyptic elf movie.
After making headlines for her antics, Grimes revealed that she did it to troll the paparazzi who harassed her after her semi-breakup with her longtime partner, multi-billionaire Elon Musk. She added that the constant line of photographers was stressful.
Although she allegedly intends to give up her celebrity career in the near future, Grimes is still focused on her new album.
Rolling stone noted that she has yet to announce a release date or tracklist for the project. Book 1 will mark his first album since the 2020s Miss Anthropocene.
Grimes released the lead single, the seemingly autobiographical “Player of Games”, earlier this year. Stereo eraser also noted that she was teasing a collaboration with The Weeknd. Hopefully, we’ll find out more about the project and what’s next for the star in the months to come.
