Elon Musk quietly dating musician Grimes

Musk and Grimes proudly walked the Met Gala red carpet in NY together, with the musician sporting a choker with a design that is seemingly inspired by the Tesla T logo. A source explained that Musk planned on making a Twitter a joke only to discover that Grimes had already made it. It seems that now the two have decided to make their relationship official with their appearance at the Met Gala. Not only have the pair massively raised awareness of an idea that could legitimately spell the end of the human race if it comes into fruition, they have also potentially given us one of the weirdest celebrity pairings in recent memory. Roko's Basilisk emerged from a forum post, which posited that any suitably powerful (and malevolent) artificial intelligence would be able to identify and torture anyone who was not active in its development.

As it turned out, Grimes had made the joke three years earlier with her character Rococo Basilisk, who appears in the video for "Flesh Without Blood". Grimes was extremely surprised and admitted that it was the first time someone understood that joke in three years.

A few hours before the event, Page Six reported that Grimes and Musk have been "quietly dating" for a month, having met online over a niche, nerdy joke. "They were both poking fun at AI", the source advised.

Apparently, the pair met after Grimes, real name Claire Elise Boucher, directed a video for the song Venus Fly which impressed Elon so much that he tweeted her with a bit of Musky praise. The tech billionaire also shared his approval of her Spotify playlist. He hit back: "Sounds great riding my cyborg".

Grimes most recently released her acclaimed avant-pop maifesto Art Angels in 2015, after climbing into the upper echelons of the indie music sphere with her distinct aural stylings. She then dropped out of school to focus on her music career.
