Grimes has taken to Twitter in response to remarks made by Ariel Pink about Madonna and his role in her new album

Pink – who releases his new album ‘Pom Pom’ in November – claimed he’s been recruited by the singer’s label to work on her next record because she “need[s] something edgy” and that she can no longer “pretend that she’s 20 years old”.

“Interscope are calling me to help write Madonna’s record,” Pink said. “They need something edgy. They need songwriting. She can’t just have her Avicii, her producers or whatever, come up with a new techno jam for her to gyrate to and pretend that she’s 20 years old. They actually need songs. I’m partly responsible for that return-to-values thing.”

But Grimes took to Twitter, to call Pink’s remarks “delusional misogyny [which] is emblematic of the kind of bullshit everyone woman in this industry faces daily”.

Additionally, Madonna’s manager Guy O’Seary has denied that Pink is involved in the album. Writing on Twitter he stated: “@madonna and I have never heard of @arielxpink. The label may have reached out but M has no interest in working with mermaids.”
