7 Reasons Grimes Is The Actual Nerdiest

There's no need to hide it. We accept you.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is still five months away, but we're already salivating. And now we don't have to salivate alone, thanks to a new essay penned by Grimes for the UK's LOVE magazine.

The "REALiTi" singer throws it wayyyy back, leading off the piece with this sentence: "My name is Grimes and I first came to love Star Wars before I could even walk." She then details her expert knowledge of the original trilogy, having seen it (and all the behind-the-scenes documentaries) as a kid with her dad. She mentions how the film crew used peanut butter on the camera lenses to blur the shots and make the cars appear to be flying.

Yeah, that's how deep her "Star Wars" game goes.

Given that this isn't the first time we've seen the singer dip into her fondness for nerd culture, we decided it was time to round up her best moments doing exactly that. As she told The New York Times in 2012, “I’ve always been such a nerd. I can’t wait to be more ‘Lord of the Rings.’ ”

  1. She Opts For Middle Earth (Or Westeros) Costume Designs
    YouTube

    In last year's "Go" music video -- which Grimes directed with her brother, Mac Boucher -- she kicks up a lot of sand in the desert before being regally carried like the Khaleesi (or the elven queen, maybe?) she truly is.

  2. She Can Pull Out A Good "Simpsons" Reference When Necessary

    Grimes cops to swiping this from the @simpsonfamilyquotes Insta account, but as a Canadian, she gets a pass for self-deprecation.

  3. She Gets Into Villain Attire On The Regular

    Good guys beware. Eyepatch Grimes is comin' for ya.

  4. She's A Heck Of An Illustrator

    The wild artwork for her 2012 album, Visions, also came directly from her hand.

  5. She Rocks Stylized Comic Book Tanks

    Because no outfit is complete without some saturated colors.

  6. She Shouts Out Fallen Sci-Fi Heroes

    When Leonard Nimoy (aka Mr. Spock) died in February, Grimes offered her condolences via Instagram.

  7. She Studies Dothraki And Reads Anime Over Breakfast "A kings breakfast and study verbs lakhat 'to chew' in dothraki use in a sentence!" OK Grimes, you actually win.
