Elon Musk Is Dating Singer Grimes

He was going to joke about "Rococo Basilisk", a phrase merging the experiment and the baroque architectural style, but realised Grimes had beaten him to the punch in 2015, by creating a character called Rococo Basilisk for her music video to Flesh Without Blood.

"Grimes said this was the first time in three years that anyone understood the joke", a source told Page Six.

But Musk realized Grimes had made the same highbrow A.I. joke, years before he thought of it.

The joke centred on the Roko's Basilisk thought experiment, which considers a future in which all-powerful AI punishes those who did not help it into existence.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO, who recently split from Heard, put his arm around the Canadian singer as they posed for pictures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Mirror reported on Tuesday. Elon was planning on making a joke on Twitter about the complications of artificial intelligence but realized Grimes had already made the joke with her music. "[This character] is doomed to be eternally tortured by an artificial intelligence, but she's also kind of like Marie Antoinette", she explained in an interview at the time.

Musk is well-known for warning of an impending A.I. apocalypse, which he believes is more unsafe than nuclear war.

Musk, 43 had also tweeted his approval of her Spotify playlist "Go flex & Psycho".

Grimes is a double major in psychology and philosophy, with minors in Russian and electro-acoustic.

"Glad ur finally listening to cyberpunk speedwae hahaha", Grimes replied. He hit back: "Sounds great riding my cyborg".

Just last week they had another online in-joke.

As one of this year's biggest plot twists, Elon Musk and Grimes confirmed their relationship on the red carpet of the 2018 Met Gala.

Having been a very vocal fan of Grimes' work, Musk then attempted to contact her to discuss her ideas.
