Grimes earned praise for her acting debut as Princess Peach alongside partner Elon Musk on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, but the sketch was not without its perils. On Tuesday (May 11), the 33-year-old singer revealed that she had a panic attack after the show and was hospitalized as a result.
“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,” Grimes said in an Instagram post in which she posed as Peach with musical guest Miley Cyrus. “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,” she added.
And, though she suspected it might anger some of her fans, Grimes apologized in advance for saying that the Tesla/SpaceX boss and father of their son “killed it” in high late night hosting debut. Before showtime, the singer teased her debut, saying, “Tune into SNL tonight to watch me try acting!” Her unforgettable cameo found Grimes slipping into the Peach costume in a Super Mario Bros. sketch in which boyfriend Musk played the evil Wario, who was on trial for murdering Super Mario during a go-kart race.
