Webby 24 Extended Entry deadline right rail

Grimes is flipping the script on what it means to be a pop star in the Internet era, and changing how artists interact and share music online.

An Executive Judge here at The Webby Awards, on the red carpet for the 17th Webbys—where she was being honored as Artist of the Year—Grimes told us “The Internet allowed me to have a career…from a really young age, I was listening to a lot of diverse music.”

Grimes, neé Claire Boucher, has performed aboard an aircraft carrier and in the atrium of the Guggenheim Museum. She captures the high-low stratum of celebrity and geekdom with her ethereal singing voice with songs that are rife with thumping and danceable grooves. Grimes projects verve hinting towards the rhythms of dancehall revels, bringing a new tone to the pop song paradigm.
