Grimes Reveals the R-Rated Movie She Watched With Her Five-Month-Old Son, X Æ A-12 Musk

Grimes is opening up about her five-month-old son X Æ A-12 Musk and the type of art she has been showing to him.

The 32-year-old singer, who welcomed her son with partner Elon Musk back in May, says her son likes “radical” art.

“I’ve watched Apocalypse Now and stuff with my baby,” Grimes told the New York Times. “He’s into radical art. Like, he just actually is, and I don’t think it’s problematic to engage with them on that level.”

Apocalypse Now was rated R for “disturbing violent content, pervasive language, some sexuality and drug use.”

Grimes says that her son has actually helped her produce new music.

“The first version, there [were] too many sort of sharp bells, and it caused tears and just general chaos,” Grimes said about the music she produced for the app Endel. When she changed the mix, “X would smile more and stuff.”

Over the summer, Grimes responded to one of Elon‘s tweets and told him to turn off his phone after something he wrote.

Egypt Extends Invite To Elon Musk After He Tweets About The Great Pyramids Being Built By Aliens

The country of Egypt has extended a travel invite to Elon Musk to come visit the county and their iconic Great Pyramids, just after he tweeted some conspiracy theories about the landmarks.

Over the weekend, the tech CEO hypothesized that the three ancient wonders of the world were actually built by aliens, and suggested that one of the pharaohs was one himself.

“Aliens built the pyramids obv,” he wrote. “Ramses II was [cool face emoji].”

Elon went on, trying to prove the theory as fact: “The Great Pyramid was the tallest structure made by humans for 3,800 years. Three thousand, eight hundred years…This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.”

After seeing his posts, Egypt’s Minister of International Co-operation, Rania al-Mashat, invited him to come visit the landmarks and see the actual tombs of the people who built them, hinting that they weren’t aliens.

Later on, famed archaeologist Zahi Hawass filmed a short video about Elon’s theories and dismissed the notion of the Pyramids being built by aliens.

“[The] pyramids [were] built by Egyptians and I will tell you quickly the evidence,” he says, adding that he has “found the tombs of the pyramids builders that tell everyone that the builders of the pyramids are Egyptians and they were not slaves…[it was] a national project of the whole nation.”

Did Amber Heard Think Elon Musk Gave Her a Bugged Tesla?

Amber Heard was apparently worried that Elon Musk gifted her a bugged Tesla.

Jennifer Howell, a family friend of the Heard family, revealed the details in the court declaration for Johnny Depp‘s recent trial and said she had learned this info from Amber‘s mom Paige.

Paige shared with me while I was visiting [Amber’s sister] Whitney that Elon Musk had gifted a Tesla or multiple Teslas (not sure if it was one or more), but Amber found out that they were ‘bugged,’” Jennifer said in court documents obtained by the Daily Mail.

Paige also told me the reason Johnny and Amber broke up was because Amber was violent and emotional and loved Johnny so much that she could not control it,” Jennifer allegedly continued.

She also claimed that Amber‘s mom described Elon as “controlling.”

Meanwhile, Amber‘s sister is slamming Jennifer‘s statements as “bizarre” and a “complete fiction.”

Sources close to Elon reportedly called these statements “pure fantasy land.”

Amber‘s private conversation with Elon Musk was also recently revealed in a bombshell moment in court. Elon and Amber were in a relationship after her relationship with Johnny.

Tesla Billionaire Elon Musk Thinks Another Stimulus Package Is 'Not in the Best Interests of the People'

Elon Musk has an opinion about how to help the world amid the pandemic.

The 49-year-old Tesla CEO, who is estimated to be worth nearly $70 billion, weighed in on a proposed additional stimulus package from the government on Friday (July 24).

“Another government stimulus package is not in the best interests of the people imo,” he wrote.

“As a reminder, I’m in *favor* of universal basic income. Goal of government should be to maximize the happiness of the people. Giving each person money allows them to decide what meets their needs, rather than the blunt tool of legislation, which creates self-serving special interests,” he continued.

“These are jammed to gills with special interests earmarks. If we do a stimulus at all, it should just be direct payments to consumers.”

Elon recently made headlines after private conversations between him and Amber Heard were revealed in court.
