Grimes Defends Boyfriend Elon Musk, Asks Fans to Stop "Harassing" Her
The artist reminded followers that she is not her partner's "spokesperson"
Published Aug 23, 2021Grimes is harnessing the sheer force of the latest viral TikTok trend to once again defend her billionaire partner Elon Musk. On Saturday (August 21), the avant-garde pop artist hopped on the viral "Is he hot or..." challenge with a new video posted to the platform.
Addressing the barrage of negative comments about her tech entrepreneur boyfriend, she wrote: "Stop harassing me on this app over fake news and I am not my bf's spokesperson."
In the clip, she takes a page out of Jeff Bezos' book by cosplaying Dr. Evil —seated in a room washed in purple lighting, cooly eyeing the camera while petting a robot dog. (And wearing a fairy wing filter, obviously.) The artist proceeds to pick up a knife and smile slyly.
The viral audio is a mash-up of Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T." and City Girls' "Twerkulator," which plays as Grimes' text rolls out over the video:
Is he hot or is he out to destroy big oil[?] Is he hot or will he put the first human on Mars[?] Is he hot or is he giving a $100 million prize for scalable ideas to remove CO2 from [Earth's] atmosphere[?] Is he hot or is he developing batteries that don't use cobalt therapy eliminating unethical mining practices from our cars and phones[?]
Is he, though?

In July, Grimes revealed that her new song "100% Tragedy" — which she previewed on TikTok — is about "having to defeat Azealia Banks."
