Kreayshawn and Grimes are collaborating together, and the two share more than just a band (L$D). The comparisons are almost uncanny, we wonder if they are actually related IRL. Take a peek and see what we mean.

Compare + Contrast
They both enjoy smoking and cat eyeliner:
They both wear big hipster glasses:
They have similar hair blond and black hair + bangs / colourful hair:
They both love animals (cat for Kreayshawn, dog for Grimes):
They both landed major magazine covers:
Posing in front of cartoon backgrounds makes them hold their hands to their ears:
And then they do the same ear holding thing while wearing funky hats:
They both disregard designer duds:
- Grimes sat down with The New York Times recently to declare, among other things, that she shies away from designer clothes and likes to show “the beauty of women, but with a dark side,” she said. “I like creating beauty out of scary things.”
- Kreayshawn: Gucci, Gucci, Louis, Louis, Fendi, Fendi, Prada, the other b***s wear that s**t so, she don’t even bother.
Although her name sounds dirtier, Grimes is a little more refined than Kreayshawn. Kreayshawn is hella colourful, and Grimes is fifty shades of grey. Plus, what has Kreayshawn done lately? She made her few hit wonders, cashed in and took off. We think Grimes will stick around in the scene for a while, and make herself a nice long career. Kreayshawn is a splash in the pool, Grimes creates a ripple effect.
