Grimes made a “scary” trip to the hospital following her and her boyfriend Elon Musk’s appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.
On Tuesday night, the pop star posted two backstage photos on Instagram of herself in full costume alongside the show’s musical guest, Miley Cyrus. “Forgot to post this cuz I somehow caused myself to have a panic attack and went to the hospital yesterday which tbh was quite scary,” she wrote in the caption, “and I suppose it’s a good time to start therapy.” On a lighter note, she added, “But nonetheless - wowwwww @mileycyrus is good live and so chill! So grateful to the SNL team for being so kind and letting me sneak in as princess peach and so proud of my beautiful E (which I know will upset the grimes fans so I apologize in advance) but he killed it.”
Towards the end of the show, Grimes made a cameo as Princess Peach during a Nintendo-themed sketch in which Musk played Wario, the arch-rival of Super Mario in the video game franchise. During his opening monologue, the tech billionaire also joked about the unusual name of their son, X Æ A-Xii, saying that “it’s pronounced, ‘Cat-running-across-the-keyboard.’” Following the show, the couple attended a crypto-themed after party at a Public hotel with “Girls dressed as aliens walking around with trays of Dogecoin cookies and cupcakes” and “Dogecoin ice sculptures,” according to Page Six.
