Grimes is sticking up for herself and clarifying some rumors! The 33-year-old Canadian singer shared a TikTok video of herself dancing to her new song “100% tragedy” on Wednesday writing “my label thinks this isn’t a single what do y’all think?” But it isn’t the clip or the song that have people talking—it’s her response to a user asking her why she signed to a label. “Need to get out of the gate-keeping of indie music and I need $ for music videos etc. haha contrary to popular belief my bf doesn’t fund my career,” Grimes responded. That boyfriend she’s talking about is billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. She has been dating him since 2018 and they share one son together. Her comment comes months after she signed with Columbia Records after leaving her Canadian indie label 4AD.
