10+ Weird Times Elon Musk And Grimes Made Headlines In 2020

Elon Musk and Grimes make for quite an interesting and unique pair, and because they seem rather weird to many people, they often make headlines.

Few people expected them to stay together this long, and they definitely create interest with everything they do.

Here are 10+ times Elon Musk and Grimes made headlines in 2020. You'll definitely be surprised by some of these!

1. Elon Musk's tweets have been the topic of conversation all year.

Elon Musk isn't the only figure who often comes under fire for tweeting controversial things. He seems to have been rather on a roll this year, and many of his tweets raised some eyebrows.

Some of these tweets seem like they were written purposefully to raise interest.

He tweeted that aliens built the pyramids.

On July 30, Musk said something a bit out there by claiming that it was aliens who built the Egyptian pyramids, not people.

In response, Egypt's Minister of International Cooperation, Rania A. Al Mashat, tweeted back at him and invited him to come to see the pyramids.

2. Musk then upset some people by tweeting about COVID 19.

Back in March before most everywhere in the United States went under lockdown, Elon Musk got attention for tweeting that it was ridiculous for people to be panicking.

On March 6th, he wrote, "The coronavirus panic is dumb." Not everyone agreed with him.

3. Grimes posted a picture with a weird and dangerous decoration.

While Elon Musk might tweet a lot of controversial things, Grimes is also known for being rather eccentric.

In some social media posts, she included a picture of their son, who goes by X, but the background decoration really had people upset. There was a large knife stuck into the wall as a decoration.

4. Musk had more to say about the coronavirus and lockdowns.

Near the end of April, Musk waded even further into the debate about the pandemic and restrictions when he tweeted, "FREE AMERICA NOW!"

Many people pushed back against him for this, including Ariana Grande's mother, who called the tweet "irresponsible."

5. Grimes made a hilarious analogy about parenting.

While much of the buzz surrounding these two was because of controversies, there were some more lighthearted moments.

Grimes tweeted that, "Having a baby is like the dark souls of tamagotchi."

Anyone who has ever had to watch a child knows that it is the extra difficult mode of life!

6. Grimes disagreed with Musk on Twitter over pronouns.

Once again, Musk came under fire for tweeting that "pronouns suck." Many people called him out for this, including Grimes herself.

In a tweet that she quickly deleted, she told him to "turn off his phone" and call her to talk about this. She said, "I cannot support hate. Please stop this."

7. He got more attention for seemingly erratic behavior.

In a profile from Vanity Fair, the magazine laid out what was on many people's minds: what was up with Musk's seemingly all-over-the-place tweets and actions?

While Musk used to be mostly known for his companies like Tesla, people everywhere started to notice he really seemed to like attention.

Those close to Musk had this to say:

In the profile, a former Tesla executive had some things to say about Musk.

“The thing about Elon is, that right now, everyone else is finally seeing the way he has always been. He’s being the same Elon he has always been in private.”

8. Elon got attention for his friendship with Kanye West.

When Kanye West ran in the United States Presidential election, most celebrities didn't support him, but Elon Musk did.

He tweeted his support for Kanye, and Kanye West posted a tweet that included the two of them together hanging out.

Some people weren't sure if Musk was serious about his support or not.

9. Their baby's name.

The most memorable Elon Musk and Grimes moment this year was when they announced the name of their newborn son.

Elon tweeted the impossible-to-pronounce name, X Æ A-Xii, in May, and most people were convinced that this attention-loving duo was out to troll us all.

Grimes' attempts to explain just made everyone more perplexed.

People all over Twitter were begging for an explanation of the alien-like name, but when Grimes tried to help out, things just got weirder.

The name meaning included many things such as elvish spelling, an airplane, and a "metal rat."

Whether they were trolling or not, no one could stop talking about this name.

10. The couple also fought on Twitter about the name.

When Musk tweeted saying that Grimes wrote "SR-17" instead of "SR-71," Grimes explained that she was still recovering from childbirth.

The entire interaction just made a lot of people cringe as seeing their relationship dynamic play out that way was a bit uncomfortable.

11. The first picture of their baby.

Those interested in the couple were excited to see a picture of their child together.

Musk obliged his fans by posting a picture of their son all swaddled up in his hospital hat.

However, the baby picture was edited to make it look like he had small face tattoos.

12. When Elon announced he was leaving Silicon Valley...

Just a couple of days ago, Musk announced that he had actually already sold his homes in Bel-Air and that he had relocated to Texas.

Given that he's so associated with Silicon Valley, many fans were surprised at this, but he's not the only person in the tech industry to do so.
