Grimes has somehow managed to snag one of the very few billionaires under 50, so it makes sense that’s she’d go hard to defend her man, Elon Musk. Even if he is kind of a tool. Last week Grimes’ benefactor found himself under scrutiny for making a big donation to some right wing, Republican organizations. It’s a requirement that I think is in the Billionaire Handbook which is handed to newly minted billionaires in a secret ceremony involving goat’s blood and takes place in a clubhouse in an underground bunker.
The problem is that Elon is a climate change affirmer, which is at odds with the Republican platform which thinks we should all just take our sweaters off and quit complaining. Elon defended himself saying he gives way more to environmental groups. A Grimes fan #tooktotwitter to tell her she should break up with Elon because of his republican associations. Rather than simply keeping her mouth shut, Grimes shot back.
every aerospace company has to donate to republicans in order to function. in fact most major companies across the board do, in some capacity. it’s the price of doing business in america. e donates way more money, like absurdly more, to environmental causes

It seems like if you are a big shot billionaire who wants to go to space, you could probably sit on you hands and some eager republican lawmaker who always wanted to be an astronaut as a kid would come to you asking to kick it. He shouldn’t have to pay for a seat at the table. Did he have to pay to be on Trump’s advisory council (which he has since quit it), or did they ask him? I honestly don’t know, but this seems like a bullshit excuse for giving money to groups opposed to your core beliefs.
This isn’t the first time the Little Goth Girl Who Could has waded into the murky waters of politics in defense of Elon. She also went to the mat for him over union-busting allegations at Tesla. The world is really weird right now, you guys.
After her defense of Elon’s political spending garnered more attention than she could handle, Grimes again #tooktotwitter to let people know, that she knows, she’s out of her depth.
maaaaan ugh.. no 1 calls us for comment ..like there is no world in which i’m ok w republican donations.. was just trying to explain wut happened.. and i’m not on the board of tesla or any of these companies,, haha man i need a publicist ??♀️???

She sure did make sure to say no one calls “US” like she and Elon are at the collective decision making stage of their relationship. Like a reporter who wants to ask Elon about his multi-billion dollar empire, or to comment on some astrophysicist type shit is going to be all, “oh ok, if Elon’s not available may I please speak to that girl with all the hand tattoos that plays the recorder then?”. I can’t blame her though. I’d be a one puppy-kicking, ride or die bitch if my billionaire boyfriend needed me to defend his honor if it meant I could take pretend baths in a tub full of precious jewels eating lobster rolls, hold the bread, and guzzling Crystal. Just putting that out there. #nofattiesorrepublicanstho
