Did Grimes’s release new music to win Elon Musk back?
October is coming in hot with viral news stories, and we’re getting a refresher with celebrity gossip putting the Kardashians on the sidelines (at least for the moment). Yes, we’re talking about the buzz coming from the strangest couple to join the A-list for quite some time, Elon Musk & Grimes.
If you’ve been following the headlines from publications across the board the past few weeks, you know the odd couple has finally called it quits.
Now, fans & haters alike are digging up all the spilled tea from the musician & magnate former duo. People want to know why Musk & Grimes split, and if there are any plans for the couple’s reunion anytime in the near future. It didn’t take long for reporters to put Grimes’s new music under a microscope, hoping to get any tidbits of behind-the-scenes juice.
If anything is going to tell us Grimes’s true feelings about her split with Elon Musk, it’s going to be her lyrics. So did Grimes release new music about her recent breakup? Here’s what we’ve found.
Vanity Fair reported in late September that Grimes & Elon Musk decided to end their three-year-long relationship. Well, sort of. Elon Musk told Page Six the couple have “semi-separated”. What does this phrase mean? Well, the two co-parent their child X Æ A-Xii Musk, and Elon told reporters the two still love each other despite their breakup.
Elon Musk is quoted saying, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms. It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room”.
Musk’s quote let people know he & Grimes are under the same roof, and the split appeared to be very logistic based on the magnate’s statement.
However, Grimes is a famous musician, and fans thought the singer might reveal there were more feelings involved in the split than the robotic Elon Musk may have led on. This week, fans got some answers from the massive music star.
Love by Grimes
Hypebeast reported over the weekend that Grimes recently took to Instagram to share a new song with her adoring fans. She posted the song, along with a description & lyrics which left little to the imagination and quenched gossipers’ thirst for tea from the recent breakup.
The lip syncing video was presented with a caption reading, “LOVE by Grimes . . . I wrote and produced this song this week in response to all the privacy invasion, bad press, online hate, and harassment by paparazzis I’ve experienced this week”. Well, why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Grimes?
When fans read the caption, they knew the new music from Grimes would provide a window into her feelings about the massively public split from Elon Musk. Furthermore, the lyrics she posted made her message with the new music completely undisguised.
Everything they hate is everything I love
The lyrics read, “It f*cking sucks to be awake . . . Oh Lord I pray my soul to take . . . nobody understands because . . . everything they hate . . . is everything I love . . .every night I . . . Tell myself I’d rather die . . . than heed ur rage.. . . . Go on and say it ! . . . When you hate me.. . . . Think it fixes you to break me? . . . I’ll never fight you back because . . . Everything you hate . . . Is everything I LOVE”.
It’s hard to say exactly who Grimes is referring to in her new music. Is the “they” referring to the media, and “everything they hate” referring to Grimes’s ex-beau Elon Musk? This idea certainly tracks, but we won’t know for sure what Grimes means to say in her new music until she explains her new song explicitly. When she does, we’ll be there reporting.
