B.C. Musician Grimes Dating Elon Musk


Vancouver musician Grimes and entrepreneur Elon Musk went public as a couple on Monday night by showing up at the Met Gala in New York.

Earlier in the day, the New York Post reported that the two met “around a month ago online of course, through a joke Musk had planned to tweet but discovered Grimes had already made, dealing with the complications of artificial intelligence.”

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, is 30. Musk is 46.

At the Met Gala, Musk told reporters it was a “date night.”

Grimes pursued a music career after dropping out of Montreal’s McGill University. She has released four studio albums since 2010 and has collected four Juno Awards and an iHeartRadio Much Music Video Award.

Last year, Grimes directed Janelle Monáe’s video for “Venus Fly.”
