"I so admire Grimes. I’m probably around 20 years older than her, and it’s cool to have someone so much younger than me who, in a way, I look up to. The fact that she produces her own music and is proud of it is really cool. I’m glad she calls herself a feminist. With Le Tigre, we considered ourselves a feminist punk band, and we really wanted one of those dividers at the record store—that said ‘Classic Rock’ or ‘Punk’ or whatever—to say ‘Feminist Electronic Punk.’ It would be like us and Peaches. Now Grimes would be there."

"Please see the following special request by the artist: ‘If possible, one cute bulldog, french bulldog, or pomeranian (or other cute animal, such as a chinchilla or a pekingese) to visit and hang out but who gets to leave before too much loud noise is heard so that he or she does not hurt their ears. It is important that if said animal visits, they have a safe home to return to. lol.’"
