Grimes Clarifies That Her ‘WarNymph’ Social Media Accounts Are Not For Her Unborn Baby

Update: Following her pregnancy announcement, Grimes shared images and videos of a digital character, under the name “WarNymph,” that many believed were meant to represent her unborn baby. However, Grimes has now taken to Twitter today (January 23) to debunk that theory. She says that instead, “WarNymph” is “a digital avatar that I’ve been working on for over a year.” She tweeted, “As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, @WarNymph is a digital avatar that I’ve been working on for over a year. It is not a social media account for my unborn child. Plz don’t try to create controversy about my baby, whose privacy I plan on protecting.”

The original post follows below.

It would be fair to call Grimes an unconventional thinker. With a lot of the things she says and does, the facts speak for themselves, with no extra descriptions needed to convey the nature of these things. Earlier this month, for example, she seemed to announce her pregnancy with an NSFW Instagram post, in which the unborn baby’s silhouette could be seen through Grimes’ skin, and in which Grimes is not wearing any visible clothing. Now, the child can be seen even more clearly on Grimes’ new “WarNymph” social media accounts, which feature 3D renders of her unborn baby doing things like shooting arrows and talking about the apocalypse, as Consequence Of Sound reports.

The @WarNymph accounts on both Twitter and Instagram are private at the moment; “Yes while she’s in beta form she’s private,” Grimes tweeted. Still, Grimes shared an image of WarNymph, and a video from one of the private accounts found its way out into the world. In the clip, the baby flexes its advanced vocabulary and says in a soft voice, “This is the end of the world. The world stands on a ledge. Death and the end is nigh. The next planet in the solar system… it’s called death. The sun explodes and we all die. The earth is going deafeningly quiet.”

Meanwhile, Grimes recently released a new song, “4ÆM,” as part of the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack.
