  • Grimes was grateful to “SNL” for allowing her to guest on her boyfriend Elon Musk’s Wario skit

Grimes shared that she had a panic attack after Elon Musk’s debut on “Saturday Night Live. This may interest you : ‘She Must Be So Obsessed’.”

The “Oblivion” singer shared a photo of herself with Miley Cyrus on Instagram. The photo was taken during Musk’s “SNL” debut where she was dressed as Princess Peach. Cyrus was present as a musical guest. In the caption, Grimes explained why it took her days to upload the photo and revealed that she was hospitalized due to panic attack.

“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 wrote.

“But nonetheless – wowwwww @mileycyrus is good live and so chill!”

Grimes also thanked “SNL” for letting her guest as Princess Peach in Musk’s Wario skit. She also expressed how proud she was of her boyfriend.

“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 (which I know will upset the grimes fans so I apologize in advance) but he killed it,” she added.

Grimes received supportive messages in the comments section. Many also praised her for playing Princess Peach on Musk’s comical skit.

“Loved it!!!![heart emoji] you as peach was the cutest thing ever,” one commented.

“Wooo Princess Peach more like Queen Peach,” another added.

“Only reason I watched,” a different user stated.

The SpaceX CEO announced during his monologue that he was making history because he was the first “SNL” host with Asperger’s syndrome or at least the first one to admit it. Many were not surprised with his announcement because they already knew it.

“No it’s obvious to those of us who either live or work with someone who is autistic and has aspergers. That’s why many of us aren’t surprised,” one commented.

“I’ve been saying it for years. I’m pretty sure Zuckerberg has,” a second user added.

Meanwhile, many also corrected Musk because he was not the first “SNL” host with Asperger’s. According to them, the honor belongs to Dan Aykroyd.

“Elon Musk claiming to be the first ‘SNL’ host with ‘Asperger’s’ isn’t even true, Dan Aykroyd has Tourette’s and autism, he received an ‘Asperger’s’ dx in the 80s,” one tweeted.

“When Elon Musk claims he’s the first SNL host with Aspergers but he was not informed about Dan Aykroyd and Jerry Seinfeld,” another wrote.
