Grimes loves Elon Musk but she does not love the media attention that comes with their relationship.
The Canadian singer addresses her romance with the Tesla and SpaceX founder in a new interview with WSJ. Magazine. She describes Musk as a “super-interesting goddamn person.”
“Look, I love him… he’s great,” she says. “There’s got to be some reason. I just think…” she tells the outlet before trailing off. The sentiment is definitely reciprocated by Musk, who tells the outlet, “I love c’s wild fae artistic creativity and hyperintense work ethic.” “c” is the name Grimes would like to be referred to moving forward.
The two began exchanging flirty messages on Twitter in April 2018. c was not prepared for the whirlwind of attention from mainstream and social media.
“I was simply unprepared,” she expresses. “I’ve just been wallowing in indie music for, like, a decade… I just thought I could keep going along in my funny little way, and then you casually respond to someone in a tweet and it’s on Fox News, and you’re like, ‘Ugh,’ you know? That was a very disturbing moment.”
c, 31, and Musk, 47, confirmed their relationship when appearing together at the 2018 Met Gala. WSJ. Magazine‘s April Style & Design Issue is on newsstands April 6.
