Last June, the singer puzzled social media users and drew criticism from some of them after stating that artificial intelligence is “the fastest path to communism.”

Canadian singer Claire Elise Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimeswas seen last Friday strolling the streets of Los Angeles dressed in an extravagant outfit while leafing through a copy of Karl Marx’s ‘Manifesto of the Communist Party’, just a few days after she and Elon Musk announced that they had “semi-separated.”

Considering that Musk is one of the richest people on the planet, various media and followers were intrigued that his ex-partner read a text that deals with parity and the equal distribution of wealth.

However, yesterday the singer decided to clarify what happened and admitted on her Instagram account that she is not a communist and that it was all a joke so that the paparazzi would stop following her. 

This is not the first time that Grimes has become involved in the issue of communism. Last June, the singer baffled social media users and sparked criticism from some of them after stating in a TikTok video that artificial intelligence is “the fastest path to communism.” 

The relationship between Musk and Grimes became known in 2018 and since May 2020 they have a son together, whom they named X Æ A-Xii.
