Grimes was a guest on the latest episode of The Eric Andre Show, which returned to Adult Swim after a four-year hiatus late last month. In her segment on the show, titled "Grimes and Punishment," the musician was subjected to all kinds of strange torture forms, including getting tickled, having weird stuff done to her feet, and being "cheeseboarded" — that is, having melted cheese poured on her head — by the Kraft Punk, all while singing and, unbeknownst to Andre, pregnant with her and Elon Musk's child X Æ A-XII.
"[Grimes and I are] friends and she’s a fan of the show. I had a BBQ at my house a few years ago and she goes to me, 'You know, you never have women on as the music guest,'" Andre said of the appearance in a recent interview with Complex. "And I explained to her, it’s because we always torture the musical guest. I’m always beating them with bats or electrocuting them, so it’s not a good look if I’m like torturing a woman. [Laughs.] And she goes, 'Yeah, that makes sense but I wanna do the show. Fuck it, you can torture me!'"
"Later I found out she was pregnant and hadn't announced it yet," he continues. "I was like, 'You just talked me into torturing a pregnant woman!' And she was like, 'Yeah, but it was fucking awesome!'" Watch "Grimes and Punishment" above.
