Grimes is now selling "pussy rings," if that is a thing you would like to buy

The eerie, intricate electro-pop crafted by the avant-garde Gelfling known as Grimes—a.k.a Claire Boucher—has all but been drowned out by debate over her carefully assembled eccentricity. Hers is a mishmash of iconoclastic ambition, bizarre taste in haircuts, assorted post-everything philosophizing, and weirdo arts and crafts that have led the charitable to dub her the next Björk, and the less-so to wonder whether she's some sort of human Pinterest board. Anyway, here is something that will, uh, certainly not stop that: Boucher's latest side project is a new line of jewelry produced with sculptor Morgan Black, the first product of which are the below "pussy rings." They are rings that look like vulvas. You wear them to declare your feminism, or your post-feminism, or your belief that feminism is a weak, old-fashioned construct embraced by those who don't have the vulvas to wear them right out on their fingers, which is fun or something. Or whatever. Girls will probably buy these and our heads hurt. [via Stereogum]
