Pop star Grimes has revealed she suffered a ‘scary’ panic attack and had to be taken to hospital just days after her appearance on US TV show Saturday Night Live
Grimes has admitted she suffered a terrifying panic attack which left her in hospital just days after her appearance on US TV show Saturday Night Live.
The pop star, 33, whose real name is Claire Boucher, was admitted to hospital on May 10 just two days after she appeared on popular to support her long-time boyfriend Elon Musk.
The tech mogul was hosting the show, and his partner appeared in a Nintendo-themed sketch as Princess Peach.
Yesterday, Grimes took to her Instagram page to share a throwback picture from the show, showing her cuddling up to musical guest Miley Cyrus.
In the post she revealed she’d forgotten to share pictures from her SNL appearance because of a “scary” dash to hospital.
She wrote: “Forgot to post these cuz I somehow caused myself to have a panic attack and went to the hospital yesterday which tbh was quite scary and I suppose it’s a good time to start therapy.
“But nonetheless – wowwwww @mileycyrus is good live and so chill! So grateful to the SNL team for being so kind and letting me sneak in as princess peach snd so proud of my beautiful E (which I know will upset the grimes fans so I apologise in advance) but he killed it.”
Grimes welcomed a son with her partner last year, and Elon made a reference to their child’s unusual name, X Æ A-Xii, during his SNL monologue.
“It’s pronounced, ‘Cat-running-across-the-keyboard,'” the Tesla CEO joked.

The Canadian singer has previously spoken up about her own mental health and long been an advocate for other suffering similar issues.
She has suffered from panic attacks and severe social anxiety since before she shot to fame, and admitted making music helped her become a happier person.
In an interview for Dazed Magazine in 2012 the singer said: “I was really not a happy person. Since I’ve started making music, it’s the first time in my life that I’ve been a happy person.”
