Grimes made an announcement over the weekend that was as confusing as her baby’s name.
“Oblivion” singer and girlfriend of Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk revealed in her Instagram Stories on Saturday that she had tested positive for COVID-19.
“I finally got COVID but weirdly enjoyed the DayQuil fever dream … 2021,” she wrote.
Grimes inexplicably shared the news of his diagnosis on a screenshot of the art of SZA’s new song “Good Days”, and added, “This song is so” with a series of emojis.
The pop star did not mention in her post whether Musk or their baby, X Æ A-Xii, had also contracted the virus.
When screenshots of the Grime post hit Twitter, some users were taken aback by the tone of the ad.
Grimes’ attitude towards the COVID-19 contraction may be influenced by her boyfriend’s opinions about her. In November, Musk tweeted that he “very likely” had COVID-19 after receiving varying results from multiple tests.
At the time, he also tweeted that he was experiencing cold symptoms and that “DayQuil rocks” – which may explain Grimes’ reasoning for taking it.
Earlier, in April, Musk called the COVID-19 shutdown orders “fascist.” In May, he tweeted that his company was reopening “against Alameda County rules” in California, adding that if anyone were to be arrested, “I ask it’s just me.”
“I think the reality of COVID is that it’s dangerous if you’re elderly and have pre-existing conditions,” Musk told the New York Times in July. “It absolutely makes sense to have a lockdown if you’re vulnerable, but I don’t think it makes sense to have a lockdown if you’re not vulnerable.”
