Grimes Says Relationship With Tesla CEO Elon Musk Ruined Her Career
While speaking with CULTURED Mag, the artist formerly known as Grimes gets personal and dishes on the love she has for Tesla CEO Elon Musk and their relationship, which she says nearly ended her musical career.
Additionally the Vancouver-born art pop musician tells the publication of the couple’s many ups and downs, stating, “It’s sad how love can be this beautiful thing, but then love is the thing that’s f**king up my career. The biggest change for me this year is losing my hardcore masculinity. I used to just be free—free of all this bulls**t that it seemed like all the other girls were going through, and now I feel like I’m not.”
Also, she speaks on the many ways the über-public relationship’s forced her to change, adding, “There’s just been these major betrayals. You just have to totally un-tether your personality from your public persona. I’m like, I don’t want to use that name [Grimes] anymore. I don’t want to use that face anymore.’ Because it now stands for something that I don’t agree with.”
In addition to that with Musk, the artist now known as c, says her relationship with fans is also strained.
She adds, “Gen Z is probably going to be the first reasonable generation. A lot of my bullsh*t has really affected a lot of people in a way that I will never recover from because I feel so f**king bad about it.”
