Grimes, has responded to recent criticism from Gay Rights campaigners. The criticism comes after Grimes revealed she was to play a private concert in Moscow, despite the country's new laws that has seen the Gay Rights campaign suppressed.

The Canadian electronic musician took to her Tumblr page to respond: "Yes, I am playing in Moscow in 2 days and no, I do not feel bad about it."

Grimes did, however, express her disappointment over the new laws, which, amongst other things, have banned promotion of non-heterosexual activities to minors: "I don't think that denying and ignoring the gay community in Russia is cool."

Grimes gave more details about her future trip to Moscow: "We are entering safely and it means the world to me to be returning to Russia. It doesn't hurt the government if I refuse to tour there. Just regular people. So I don't think it's wrong to be doing this. Refusing to go to Russia would only hurt fans." [via Best Fit]
