Grimes wants to create a ‘lesbian space community’ after Elon Musk split
Newly single Grimes joked she was starting a “lesbian space community” after splitting from Elon Musk.
On Monday, September 27, the singer confirmed that she had split with the 50-year-old SpaceX founder after three years together, and is now looking to the stars for her next move.
“I will colonize [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space community,” she joked in an email to Page 6.
She appeared to be referring to Musk and SpaceX’s $178 million contract with NASA to help them reach Jupiter’s ice-crusted moon Europa to see if it could be habitable.
Page 6 added that Grimes’ response was “ironic,” which — because it’s Grimes we’re talking about here, after all — was a needed clarification.
The “Oblivion” singer previously suggested that her retirement plans involve moving to Mars after age 50 and doing “manual labor until death.”
“Ready to die with the red earth of Mars under my feet”, she posted on Instagram from Musk’s Starbase launch site in Texas earlier this year.
And in another interview, she said she would like her consciousness “to live in some kind of humanoid vessel that can talk and move freely, and then that body can go to Mars and other planets with my mind in it. ‘interior’.
Musk confirmed their separation last week, announcing that he and Grimes are now “semi-separated” but continue to co-parent their son together.
“We are half separated but we still love each other, see each other frequently and are on good terms,” Musk, 50, told Page Six.
“It’s mostly that my job at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be mostly in Texas or traveling overseas and her job is mostly in Los Angeles. She stays with me now and baby X is in the adjoining room.
Baby X is now 16 months old and named X Æ A-Xii after the State of California sadly rejected her parents’ first choice, X Æ A-12.
