What Is Going On In Grimes' New Video?
Is Grimes turning into Rihanna now that she's signed to Roc Nation?
We got pretty hot under the collar when Grimes released her new track back in June. Her first offering since signing to Jay Z's Roc Nation, 'Go' featuring Blood Diamond was apparently written for Rihanna, and it showed. Big drops, 'EDM' inclined production and some fairly 'un-Grimesy' single artwork, it looked as though our girl Claire Boucher might be heading towards pop stardom.
Two months later, she's released the accompanying video and it's kinda crazy. Set in a far away land, we've tried to piece together what's going on, though to little success.Here's a gif'd up breakdown for your careful consideration.
Clad in pool sliders and a dissarmingly intricate up-do, Grimes proves that now her boss is Jay Z, she walks nowhere.
Little known fact: Grimes once trained to be a professional ballerina. Here she is practising her moves.

Trudging one way...
...and then the other
The end. We're all out of ideas.
