Did Elon Musk’s ‘SNL’ appearance land Grimes in the hospital?
We’re nearly a week removed from Elon Musk’s Saturday Night Live debut, and he still can’t seem to escape the brightness of the studio 8H lights. The controversial episode, albeit a few negative reviews, seemed to have resonated well with fans of the late night comedy-sketch show, especially given the performance of Tesla’s CEO and chief designer of SpaceX, Elon Musk, who appeared to step outside of his comfort zone.
Equally important to note is that, seemingly, all of the cast appeared on the episode along with host Elon Musk, a big surprise to us given the big stink some of SNL’s cast made in the weeks leading up to the episode, which also featured Miley Cyrus as its musical guest. Everyone seemed to have fun in the sketches, especially Musk, who didn’t take himself too seriously. However, it wasn’t fun & games for everyone…
We are now learning that Elon musk’s girlfriend, Grimes, suffered a small panic attack after the show, and had to be hospitalized because of it. Grimes, who many thought might be the musical guest in the episode, did actually appear in one of the sketches, specifically as Princess Peach in a “Wario goes to court” sketch. So, just what happened with Grimes after her SNL appearance? Let’s delve in.
Musk kills SNL
Aside from a cringy AF monologue, it appeared that SNL writers & cast saved some of their best work for Elon Musk, who seemingly slaughtered his first time gig on the late-night sketch show. Specifically, with sketches such as “Murder Durder”, “Gen Z Hospital”, “Post Quarantine Conversation”, and “Chad on Mars”, Musk held nothing back regarding his efforts to step out of character from his normal self.
One sketch specifically, which saw Elon Musk dressed in a ridiculous Party City-styled Wario costume who’s facing a jury of toads for the death of Mario, Saw Elon Musk’s real life girlfriend Grimes play the role of Princess Peach, frantically flailing her long white gloves in defense of her new lover, Luigi.
Grimes also appeared on stage during the show’s closure which typically sees the host, in this case Grimes’s boyfriend Elon Musk say goodnight and thank all the viewers and cast members for being a part of their experience, followed by a series of hugging or, in the case Elon Musk, uncomfortable standing still so that the cast didn’t have to touch him. But what about Grimes?
Grimes seeks help
Grimes, who had a panic attack days after her SNL appearance, took to her Instagram page to share with fans a collage of photos taken from her time on SNL along with Elon Musk. Specifically, she commented on her experience as well as what exactly happened with her being hospitalized.
She wrote the following on her IG account: “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.”
She continued: “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 and so proud of my beautiful E (which I know will upset the grimes fans so I apologize in advance) but he killed it.”
