Elon Musk’s girlfriend, Canadian pop singer Grimes, has revealed how she underwent an extreme form of eyeball surgery to treat depression, as well as her daily routine of sword fighting, scream sessions, and deprivation tanks.
In an Instagram post, the 31-year-old crooner described the “360 approach” to her daily training routine, which begins with her spending two to four hours in a deprivation tank, which she says allows her to “astro-glide” to other dimensions. In the afternoon, she takes a one to two-hour sword fighting session with her trainer.
After finishing her sword fighting, Grimes heads to her recording studio, which she describes as “pretty much a 1000 [square foot] IR Sauna” fitted with the “highest grade of red light.” This environment helps ensure that her “mind and body are functioning at peak level, with a neuroplastic goal between 57.5 and 71.5 AphC’s.”

ADIDAS: Tell us about ur training regimen ? GRIMES: My training is a 360 approach. I first maintain a healthy cellular routine where I maximize the function of my mitochondria with supplements such as NAD+, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Magnesium, etc. This helps promote ATP and it’s incredibly visceral. From that point I spend 2-4 hours in my deprivation tank, this allows me to “astro-glide” to other dimensions – past, present, and future. In the afternoons I do a 1-2 hour sword fighting session with my trainer, James Lew, we go over the fundamentals that work the obliques, core stabilizes, and triceps as well as a few tricks. To wind down from this I spend 30-45 minutes on an inclined hike at roughly 4-4.5 miles per hour, arguably the most efficient workout. I then spend 45 minutes stretching before heading into the studio where my mind and body are functioning at peak level, with a neuroplastic goal between 57.5 and 71.5 AphC’s (which is my preferred range for my blood type). I’ve outfitted my studio with the highest grade of red light. It is pretty much 1000 sqf IR Sauna. Hana then comes over and we do a screaming session for 20-25 minutes while I slow boil the honey tea that maximizes vocal proficiency. I have also eliminated all blue light from my vision through an experimental surgery that removes the top film of my eyeball and replaces it with an orange ultra-flex polymer that my friend and I made in the lab this past winter as a means to cure seasonal depression. I go to bed with a humidifier on. #asmc #adidasparley #createdwithadidas #gentrifymordor
Following her studio session, her friend Hana comes over for a combined ‘screaming session” for 20-25 minutes as she slow “boils the honey tea that maximizes vocal proficiency.”
Perhaps the most eyebrow-raising part of the Vancouver born singer’s lifestyle is her decision to “[eliminate] all blue light from my vision through an experimental surgery that removes the top film of my eyeball and replaces it with an orange ultra-flex polymer that my friend and I made in the lab this past winter as a means to cure seasonal depression.”
Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, has been dating Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk since early 2018. In March, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Grimes described Musk as a “super interesting person” but admitted her surprise at the level of media scrutiny over their relationship.
“I was simply unprepared,” she said. “I just thought I could keep going along in my funny little way, and then you casually respond to someone in a tweet and it’s on Fox News, and you’re like, ugh, you know? That was a very disturbing moment.”
