Issa Rae, who won an award for her HBO Insecure series Insecure recently closed its five-season duration on Sunday, also echoed Grimes comments regarding music industry “archaic” music industry in an interview now going viral in The Los Angeles Times. “It’s probably the worst industry that I have ever come across,” she told the newspaper. “I believed that Hollywood was insane. The music industry must be rebuilt. Conflicts of interest are everywhere. Archaic mentalities. Criminals and crooks! It’s a brutal industry and I am truly sorry for artists who must make a name for themselves in this industry.”
If fans suggested different jobs to Grimes to think about and she rebuffed the idea of becoming the Twitch streamer. “I wasn’t gna become a twitch steamer cuz I think public speaking is my weakness,” Grimes replied to a user on Twitter. However, the idea of launching a podcast could be in the cards. She replied to a follower “Maybe we need to introduce the concept of homo techno.”
