Grimes made a rare public appearance at last night's Juno Awards, joining Canadian folk artist and activist Buffy Sainte-Marie to speak on female representation in the music industry. The two also walked the red carpet together, and introduced a performance from Lights. Watch some clips from the event below.

Sadly, she didn't stay long enough to accept her award for Video of the Year, which she won for her Janelle Monaé collaboration "Venus Fly." "I’m feeling really stupid for not being at the award show now (i’m rly sick and i didn’t think i would win)," Grimes tweeted.

The artist is currently working on the much anticipated followup to her terrific 2015 LP Art Angels. Last month, she insinuated that she might be two albums in the queue, saying in a since deleted Instagram caption that "the second one will be extreme darkness and chaos, the first will be highly collaborative and most glorious light.”

oh my god, i’m supposed to start! #grimes #claireboucher
