    Canadian singer Grimes, born Claire Boucher, tried to bridge the gap and connect with her fans by answering their questions in an online Q+A session. It didn't go quite as she had planned, as she posted: "I think I need to turn off the Q/A thing because I’ve been getting, like, rape threats and stuff lol. I guess that's not funny."

    Not funny. Not cool. Not acceptable.

    "I get scared a lot and people can be incredibly cruel… Sometimes I completely break down. There is a ton of pressure on me all the time, and a lot of people really hate me and are certainly not meek about letting me know that. If you decide to do something and it's different from what other people are doing, you will probably make some people very angry and words can be devastating," she also shared.

    Don't let that shit get to you, girl!

    Are you a fan of Grimes? Don't you hate when one stupid fan does something dumb and thus spoils it for the rest of us?
