It’s also common for people in relationships to adopt each other’s attitudes, behaviors, and hobbies.
(Grimes appeared as a character called “Rococo Basilisk” in her video for the single “Flesh without Blood.) Despite the confusion, contempt and declarations from fans that their relationship proves that we are living in a simulation, Grimes seems to be reacting to it all with humor.
When a Twitter user posted a joke conversation between Grimes and Musk that imagined her as a cat with glowing eyes speaking in bursts of static, Grimes called it “accurate” in a follow-up tweet of her own.
“C” was already her nickname among friends, she says, and Musk simply pointed out that she need look no further for a new appellation.
Their romance has sparked criticism from Grimes fans, particularly those who see a conflict with an “anti-imperialist” artist who once wrote a feminist manifesto dating a multi-billionaire whose company has been accused of intimidating union workers, exploiting foreign workers, anti-gay harassment, racial harassment, creating an environment of sexual harassment described as a “predator zone,” and firing a woman who spoke out.
