Grimes, the artist formerly known as Claire Boucher — she now prefers c, the symbol for the speed of light — has given a wide-ranging interview to Rolling Stone that functions as both a detailed cross-section of her personality and a near-perfect parody of what a Grimes interview in 2020 would look like.
After touching on “Star Trek,” Korn, Marvel Comics icon Jack Kirby, Billy Corgan (“Billy can’t keep his shit together. And so I relate”), and her apparent feud with Diplo (“We went on a tour [in 2012], and he was a c–t”), Grimes, 31, gets around to discussing her relationship and pregnancy with controversial Tesla founder, Elon Musk. Notably, the interview finds Grimes confirming for the first time that Musk is the father of her child.
Speaking on one of the songs from her most recent album “Miss Anthropocene,” called “So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth,” Grimes says the song is about “the sort of tragedy” of getting pregnant.
“Even though it’s this great thing,” she clarifies. “For a girl, it’s sacrificing your body and your freedom. It’s a pretty crazy sacrifice and only half of the population has to do it. It was really profound to me when I decided I was going to do it, to actually go through the act of, like, y’know, unprotected sex. I’m just like, I have sacrificed my power in this moment. I have, like, capitulated. And I have spent my whole life avoiding that situation. I have never capitulated to anything, so it was just a profound commitment.”
“I do actually just really love my boyfriend,” she adds. “So I was like, ‘You know, sure.’”
Grimes’ other thoughts on pregnancy include her fear that her baby may nudge her away from her nocturnal work schedule, even if it’s currently mirroring hers — “It doesn’t move during the day, only at night” — and, during a discussion of her rebellious teen years, that it may inherit some of her behaviors — “I’m so worried that my kid will be as crazy as me.”
Grimes first announced her pregnancy in January; Page Six exclusively broke the news of her relationship with Musk in May 2018.
