Grimes \’shades\’ ex Elon Musk in new song ‘Player of Games’
Grimes seemingly took several subtle digs at ex-boyfriend Elon Musk in her new single, “Player of Games.”
Before their split in September, Grimes and Musk who is SpaceX founder and an avid PC gamer dated for three years and share one child together: son X Æ A-12, aka “Baby X.”
In her new song, the 33-year-old singer talked about being in love with the “greatest gamer.” Grimes sang;
“I’m in love with the greatest gamer, but he’ll always love the game more than he loves me.”
NDTV had reported earlier that Musk was creating video games before he became a millionaire at 27 years old. The Tesla CEO, now 50, tweeted in January that he still plays Halo, a military science fiction video game.
The shade became more evident around the 0:36 mark of the lyric video, when she sings, “Sail away to the cold expanse of space, even love couldn’t keep you in your place.”
Musk in an exclusive interview with Page Six back in September, revealed that his work was a primary reason for his split from Grimes.
He said at the time;
“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.\”
Musk shares five other children – twins Griffin and Xavier, 17, and triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai, 15 – with his first ex-wife, author Justine Wilson. Their first son, Nevada, was born in 2002 but died of sudden infant death syndrome at only 10 weeks old.
Musk was also previously married to “Westworld” star Talulah Riley. They married in 2010 and divorced in 2012, only to remarry in 2013. They divorced a second time in 2016.
