Is she critical with this?! Even in a really weird interview, this quote stands out because the least self-aware.
In case you hadn’t learn her wild Vainness Honest profile, Grimes revealed she had a secret child, tried to elucidate the title Exa Darkish Sideræl, and touted her nice, progressive, refined, fluid relationship with Elon Musk — by no means realizing she was describing the textbook definition of hookup buddies. (They broke up earlier than the piece even got here out, btw.)
However so far as sound bites, nothing may sink to the extent of describing Elon’s way of life as “beneath the poverty line.” The singer was detailing what an uncommon billionaire her child daddy was, telling the magazine he “wouldn’t even get a brand new mattress” when her aspect had a gap in it. The best way she places it, he’s
“Bro doesn’t dwell like a billionaire. Bro lives at occasions beneath the poverty line. To the purpose the place I used to be like, can we not dwell in a really insecure $40,000 home? The place the neighbors, like, movie us, and there’s no safety, and I’m consuming peanut butter for eight days in a row?”
What within the EFF is she speaking about?!
Properly, Elon did say final 12 months that he lived in a $50k dwelling. He vowed to not personal a house and bought all his mansions to different billionaires for a mixed $130 million. He reportedly was residing in a prefab, 375-square-foot Boxabl Casita, one thing between a suburban mannequin dwelling and the indentured servant cells from Sorry To Hassle You.
But when it’s true he was actually residing that means, it wasn’t actual. It was for sport. To show one thing. It’s not like he gave all that income from the mansion gross sales to charity or to assist the unhoused plenty in Los Angeles. He wasn’t being some champion of the everyman right here. No, he was simply enjoying “home” — or “little home” we guess — with Grimes for bragging rights on Twitter.
And it was removed from actual life. In any case, we’re speaking a few man with seven kids, who we’re positive are all being taken care of — simply not in his tiny home. He by no means truly had any cash worries — at any time if he needed to be someplace he may take a personal jet, if he had a medical emergency he’d get the perfect care cash can purchase. Certainly Grimes should know that, having simply had a toddler with him.
No. This isn’t poverty. It’s poverty cosplay.
In reality he has no concept what individuals in actual want are going via, whether or not he’s residing in somewhat field or not.
