Musician

The Resume

    (March 17, 1988- )
    Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Birth name is Claire Elise Boucher
    Recorded 'Genesis,' 'Violence,' 'Flesh Without Blood,' and 'Oblivion'
    Released the albums 'Geidi Primes,' 'Halfaxa (both 2010),' 'Visions (2012),' and 'Art Angels (2015)'

Why she might be annoying:

    She turned down her nomination by Richie Hawtin to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge because of the ALS Association’s involvement with animal testing (she donated to the Malala Fund instead).
    She wore the Tesla logo around her neck while attending the Met Gala with Elon Musk (memes drew comparisons to 'Beetlejuice' and 'The Fifth Element').
    She tried to sail a self-made boat to New Orleans via the Mississippi, but - not seaworthy - it was impounded by the city of Minnesota.
    She was rumored to have chosen her stage name in reference to the Frank Grimes character on The Simpsons.
    Actually, the name came from from her old MySpace account which allowed users to list their three favorite musical genres (she chose 'grime' for all three without even knowing what it was).

Why she might not be annoying:

    She suffers from akathisia, a movement disorder that makes it difficult to sit still.
    She has collaborated with Janelle Monae.
    Her song 'Oblivion' was named both the Best Song of 2012 and the Best Song of the half-decade by Pitchfork Magazine.
    She received the Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year for 'Visions' in 2012.
    She has cited David Bowie, Mariah Carey and Marilyn Manson as her musical influences.
    She is a diehard gamer (her favorite games: Bloodborne and Legend of Zelda).
