Last September, we learned that billionaire Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, and Canadian singer Grimes, ended their relationship after giving birth to a baby boy named X Æ A-Xii. In a new Grimes song, the singer appears to be talking about her ex and when you read the lyrics, Musk wouldn’t have been a great lover…
Grimes settle accounts with his ex?
Indeed, Grimes has just released a new song called Player Of Gamesfrom his forthcoming album Book 1. In this title, the singer seems refer directly to Elon Musk and her relationship she had with the billionaire between 2018 and 2020. And the least we can say is that she does not spare him.
Some Internet users have also posted on social networks the lyrics of the title in which Grimes refers to the theme of space conquest and video games. For many, this is aimed at Elon Musk since these are the two passions of the South African billionaire.
While listening to the song, Grimes can be heard saying “I’m in love with the greatest gamer, but he loves the game more than me“. And to add that this person would not be a very good lover: “But he’ll still love the game, more than he loves me“. Finally, the lyrics continue with “Sail away, to the cold expanse of space, not even love could keep you in place“.
No longer any possible doubt as to the identity of the person she is targeting in this title. Note in passing that reading between the lines, the term “game” does not refer to a particular video game, but rather to Musk’s business with Tesla and SpaceX in particular as well as the different projects in which he embarks. Incidentally, the title of Grimes’ song is the same as a science fiction novel by Scottish writer Iain M. Banks released in 1988 and which is considered a certain… Elon Musk!
Although Grimes seems to have a lot of blame for Elon Musk, the singer still has a real passion for space like her ex. Last April, she had an impressive alien scar tattooed on her back made by the artist Nusi Quero.
