Stardom can sometimes seem like a very serious business, as everyone’s reputations are on the line and there are matters of security to be considered. Then there are those stars who just don’t care about all that!
Grimes shared a photo to her Instagram on October 3 after she was papped reading 'The Communist Manifesto' while wearing an elaborate hooded outfit. "I was really stressed when paparazzi wouldn’t stop following me this wk but then I realized it was opportunity to troll," she captioned the photo. She included in her post a photo of a headline that read, "Grimes seen reading Karl Marx following split with world's richest man Elon Musk." Musk previously announced that he and the Canadian musician are "semi-separated" after three years together, "but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms," he told Page Six.
"Full disclosure I'm still living with E," Grimes continued, "and I am not a communist (although there are some very smart ideas in this book -but personally I'm more interested in a radical decentralized UBI that I think could potentially be achieved thru crypto and gaming but I haven't ironed that idea out enough yet to explain it. Regardless my opinions on politics are difficult to describe because the political systems that inspire me the most have not yet been implemented)," she wrote. "Anyway if paparazzi keep chasing me perhaps I will try to think of more ways to meme - suggestions welcome!"
