Elon Musk’s Ex Grimes Says She Doesn’t Identify With The Word Mum

Elon Musk’s Ex Grimes Says She Doesn’t Identify With The Word Mum


In a world where people are free to identify as whatever they please one woman says she definitely does not relate to the word mum. In fact Grimes says she has a deep ‘distaste’ for the word.

Elon Musk’s on again off again partner is Claire Boucher, Canadian singer/producer best known by her stage name, Grimes. She’s also an outspoken advocate for female artists around the globe. She’s released multiple albums to critical acclaim, and her breakout album, “Visions,” won the Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year. She shares two children with her billionaire ex boyfriend and during an interview she once stated that her kids don’t call her mum.

“I think having a baby was a big rebirth for me, like, artistically,” she said in the video, per People. “Being a mother feels weird to say. For some reason I don’t identify with that word. Which is also really weird because X, he says ‘Claire,’ but he doesn’t say ‘mama’—which is so…I’m like, ‘How are you…?’ Like, maybe he can sense my distaste for the word mother.”

The child’s name is meant to represent “curiosity, the eternal question, .. and such,” she added.

Grimes and the Tesla CEO are also parents to 2-year-old X Æ A-XII, nicknamed “X.”
