Grimes became the talk of Twitterverse and for a rather interesting reason. The Canadian musician on Wednesday, June 2, uploaded a very strange TikTok video talking about communism. That wasn't the only thing though, as she also delved into artificial intelligence (AI), which her boyfriend Elon Musk once dubbed "an existential threat to humanity". 

Grimes' face tattoos were fully visible in the video. The odd markings, around her eyes, are just one of the 16 tats she's had inked. But tattoos aside, the singer has kept a relatively low profile after giving birth to X Æ A-12, the couple's son in May 2020. Even that name has a link to AI, which is strange considering how much Musk seems to hate it. Yet, it keeps making an appearance in their lives.

The latest is Grimes' very odd rant about communism and AI, which has got social media talking. From confusion to exhaustion, Twitter was varied in its responses, but certainly had a lot to say. Within minutes of the video being posted, Grimes began trending on Twitter, along with her TikTok.



 

 

'AI could solve for abundance' claims Grimes

"I have a proposition for the communists," Grimes opens the video by saying. She then adds, "If you think about it, AI is actually the fastest path to communism". Intrigued? Well you aren't alone. Grimes claims, "if implemented correctly, AI could actually, theoretically solve for abundance. Like, we could totally get to a situation where nobody has to work." She says AI could do this by automating farming and weeding out corruption, "thereby bringing us as close as possible to genuine equality."

She says it is "basically everything everybody loves about communism, but without the collective farm." She concludes by saying, "Let's be real. Forced farming, is really not a vibe." The strange video is about 50 seconds long, which we have linked below for you to enjoy. 



 

 

Twitter wants 'someone to check up on Grimes'

The reactions were instant and often brutal. "Grimes.... I cannot do this tonight...." tweeted one user. Another bluntly said, "Every month or so, grimes will start trending for some no doubt insane shit and it is my mission to never learn why."

References to her love life were also thrown in, as one social media user said, "This is what living with Elon will do to a mf." One asked, "Aren’t they married to the ceo of capitalism." Another shared: "This is my first time hearing Grimes speak, and now I finally understand why she’s with Elon Musk."

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

Another user pointed out, "For anyone confused about Grimes' political beliefs, don't worry, she also has no f------ clue." Another joked, "Grimes is not a real person like her entire existence reads like an onion article."



 

 



 

 

One person asked Twitter, "Can someone please go check on grimes." Another joked, "Grimes is gonna be the high priestess for the Singularity cult that billionaires establish to ritually sacrifice us each year as a means of social control Post-collapse." One more user joked, "Grimes confuses me because there are so many genuine ways to be an eccentric so why do you gotta try so hard to be weird."



 

 



 

 



 

 

The Musk references continued as one person bluntly noted, "How tf grimes talking about communism like she doesn’t have a boyfriend who be enslaving kids in the Congo for cobalt." Another said, "How do you think, say, the second richest man in the world factors into communism Grimes. Do you have anything to say about that."



 

 



 

 

While Musk is certainly no fan of AI, it doesn't seem like he'd enjoy communism much either. The Tesla CEO was briefly the richest man in the world, overtaking Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in January 2021. But over the years, Musk has made a name for himself with his eccentric social media posts, a habit that seems to have passed on to his wife, judging by this TikTok.
