Grimes Says She'll Explain Her Barclays Walk-Off Once She Can 'Safely and Legally Do So'
Grimes surprised fans on Wednesday night when she abruptly walked off the stage at the Barclays Center mid-song following an unexplained incident earlier in the day that apparently rattled her nerves. During the second night of a gig opening for Florence + the Machine, the singer/producer quit the set about two-thirds through during the song "World Princess II," telling the crowd, "we just had a really disturbing thing happen to us today, so sorry if my voice is shaking, it's been kind of a f---ed day... I apologize, I'm having a lot of trouble keeping it together today, right now," according to video posted by a fan.
The singer tweeted about the incident on Thursday night, writing that she would explain what happened at Barclays "once I can safely and legally do so."

In a follow-up tweet, she hit out at anonymous trolls who are "not credible sources" on information about her.
In the meantime "someone from Reddit" or fan accounts are not credible sources. Speculating about my mental health is not news. Thanks.— Grimes (@Grimezsz) June 16, 2016
A spokesperson for the singer could not be reached for comment at press time. Early Friday she announced some good news, saying she has a song called "Medieval Warfare" slated for the Suicide Squad soundtrack.
In happier news: I have a new song coming out on the suicide squad soundtrack!!!! It's called 'medieval warfare' ^_^ dreams becoming realiti— Grimes (@Grimezsz) June 17, 2016
