The pop star whose real name is Claire Boucher, opens her first-ever art show today, showcasing prints, drawings, photographs and –of course – her soul. The piece is aptly titled Selling Out, and is a legal document made in collaboration with the artist’s lawyers.
Grimes originally planned to sell her soul for $10 million, explaining, “I didn’t want anyone to buy it. So, I said we should make it $10 million and then it probably won’t sell.” However, with the current global Covid-19 pandemic and looming recession, the singer decided it wouldn’t be fair to put something on the market for such a steep asking price. “With the current state of the world, do you want to put something up for $10 million?”
Instead, the piece will be listed for a “best offer,” leaving it up to the public to decide her worth.
