Grimes is on some new shit now. She’s just released a concept album called Miss_Anthropocene and her goal is to “make climate change fun”. As far as I can ascertain, the villainous Miss_Anthropocene is “a psychedelic, space-dwelling demon/ beauty-Queen” who’s hellbent on bringing about an apocalypse, but like in a super fun way? So that’s cool. Grimes discussed some of the particulars of this project in a Wall Street Journal interview, and also revealed that she’s still on some of her old shit, that old shit being Elon Musk.
According to Page Six, Grimes and Elon are still together despite all of last years’ drama. Oh, and she’s changed her born name from Claire to “c”. So feel free to call her Miss Anthropocene, Grimes, Grimezsz, c, or Mrs. Elon Musk (if you’re nasty), but if you call her Claire, she’ll probably eat the “bloodied bits of raw flesh” from your skull and make you extinct.

Actually, I’d hold off on calling her Mrs. Musk (at least in public). Grimes thinks it’s anti-feminist to talk about your boyfriend (via Vulture):
There’s, of course, her situation with Elon Musk, whom the magazine notes she won’t mention by name and before she can even form words about him “nearly collapses on the floor in a long, pained groan.” Not just any groan, an empowered groan — “I groaned out of, I don’t know, feminism.”
Page Six says that she asked the interviewer to not tell Elon she groaned at the mention of his name, but of course, that’s not how any of this works. She went on to say “I mean, he’s a super-interesting goddamn person”. I just let out a pained “JESUS”, but don’t tell her that, ok? But I’m not the only one in pain here.
“Look, I love him, he’s great. There’s got to be some reason. I just think …” She doesn’t finish her thought, exactly, except to say “cool” after “contorting” her body into a ball in the chair.
I can understand why c (I’m respecting her nomenclature, I’m not trying to get hexed) would be so cagey about talking about Elon in too much detail given the last few times she tried it, but body language also says a lot. Maybe not about Elon, but it sure gives us insight into what it would be like to interview a 31-year-old goth teen. Thankfully, Elon wasn’t so shy about expressing his feelings for c . He emailed the WSJ to say “I love c’s wild fae artistic creativity and hyperintense work ethic”. Thing about email is, you can’t see a person’s body language but we’re going to assume he wrote this on acid, but also with a straight face. And I think I can guess the trajectory your eyeballs took.
