Canadian musician Grimes was one of the numerous celebrities challenged to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Despite being nominated by British DJ Richie Hawtin, Grimes declined both the ice cold water shower and the donation: "I don't feel great about wasting water in this California drought," she wrote on Tumblr. "But I will donate money. However, I will not donate money to this foundation because of their record of testing on animals."

She also added she'll be donating money to the Malala Fund instead, an organisation that supports education for young girls.
