Grimes admitted that things between her and Elon Musk have not been 100% great. She clarified that love is a”beautiful” thing but she suggested that her relationship with the entrepreneur has had a negative effect on her career.
“It’s sad how love could be this gorgeous thing, but then love is rsquo;s f–king up my career,” she said. “The biggest change for me this year is currently shedding my hardcore masculinity. I used to only be free–free of all this bulls–t that it looked like all the other women were going through, and I feel like I’m not. ”
It was the relationship with Musk which has been strained but also, her relationship with her fan base. Many of them were quick to call her a”sell-out” for dating a billionaire that is apparently part of the reason she’s changing her name from Grimes to c.
“There’s only been these significant betrayals,” she said, showing that this has forced to her change in many ways. “You just need to untether your character. I’m like, I don’t need to use that name [Grimes] anymore. I don’t need to use that face anymore. ’ Because it stands for something that I don’t agree with. ”
