Claire Elise Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimes, is a Canadian musician, songwriter, record producer and visual artist. Grimes released the studio albums Geidi Primes and Halfaxa in 2010. She signed a recording contract with 4AD in 2011. Grimes’ music is influenced by electronic, pop, hip-hop and R&B and experimental music.
Grimes’ third studio album Visions, released in 2012, received widespread critical acclaim, with the New York Times calling it “one of the most impressive albums of the year.” Her fourth studio album “Art Angels” was released in 2015 and received widespread critical acclaim.
According to Page Six, Elon Musk noticed the 30-year-old musician as he was researching a joke he was going to make on Twitter about artificial intelligence, only to find that Grimes had already made a similar joke.
“Elon was researching the idea of joking about Rococo Basilisk, and when he saw Grimes had already joked about it, he reached out to her. Grimes said this was the first time in three years that anyone understood the joke. They were both poking fun at AI,” the Page Six report says.
This all sounds like something out of a bad dystopian future sci-fi rom-com.
