    2. Look at her repping Bart Simpson.

    3. Grimes has her own Tumblr where she posts very personal posts, such as this amazing rant about sexual harassment in the music industry...

    ... in the piece she addresses a bunch of issues, like the media's attitude towards body image and the treatment of pop music.
