Twitch streamer Hasan Piker has confirmed that a highly anticipated Twitch stream with famous musician Grimes is going ahead after weeks of teasing.
Now, he’s using his success to create a new show in his expensive Hollywood home and has teased that Claire Elise Boucher, better known as Grimes, could be one of his first guests.
The whole chain of events was kickstarted when Elon Musk posted a meme seemingly mocking Grimes’ newfound interest in communism.

Elon Musk unites Hasan and Grimes
On October 3, Grimes said that paparazzi followed her to a photoshoot and for laughs, posed with ‘The Communist Manifesto,’ prompting plenty of memes online.
One such meme was posted by her former partner Elon Musk, making fun of the target audiences and actual audiences of Pokemon, Call of Duty, and left-wing political ideology.
In the replies, Hasan tagged Grimes and asked her: “hit me up so we can talk about this.”
Now, according to Piker, Grimes followed and DM’d him, prompting him to see if she’d be down to join him on the show.
“I think that could be very cool,” Hasan explained. “I think that would be a very cool conversation.”
Hasan confirms Twitch stream with Grimes
Five hours into a November 28 broadcast and Hasan was nearly left speechless. “Oh my God,” he said after reading a certain message.
“Grimes just said she’d be down to come on the stream,” the popular streamer confirmed.
That’s all he was willing to say. There’s no specific date locked in just yet, nor do we know how long the two may stream together for.
But with Grimes now onboard, it’s only a matter of time before new details emerge.
Hasan, Grimes and Joe Rogan?
While fans were asking Hasan not to involve Joe Rogan in his potential stream with Grimes, Piker insisted that he do just that.
“We’re 100% gonna watch Joe Rogan if she comes over to do the stream,” he replied.
Hasan has been very critical of the UFC commentator and podcast host in the past, and his uncle Cenk Uygur even wants to fight him, but it’s unclear if Grimes would partake in the activity despite Hasan’s insistence.
We’ll just have to wait and see what the pair get up to on Twitch when Grimes officially joins Hasan’s stream in the near future.
