Grimes introduced a new tune off her approaching album E-book 1. The track is titled “Player of Games” and appears to be a not-so-subtle music about the musician’s four-12 months relationship and modern break up with 50-calendar year-previous Tesla CEO and net troll Elon Musk.
Apparently, Musk truly enjoys the sport and is the best gamer, but not a lot of a lover or boyfriend, assuming the song is in truth about him. (Which it super, possibly is.)
“Player of Games” was released on December 2 and in accordance to Grimes is the commence of a new period, as she prepares to current market and launch her future forthcoming album, E-book 1. And it seems the 1st track released off it straight references Grimes relationship and eventual September break up with Musk.
I was not actually knowledgeable of the song’s existence until finally a person posted the lyrics to the monitor on Twitter. I assumed they were being shitposting. Producing it all up for a foolish goof. But no, the new music does certainly contain lyrics such as “I’m in appreciate, with thе finest gamer. But he’ll constantly appreciate the sport, far more than he enjoys me” and “Sail away, to the chilly expanse of house. Even enjoy, couldn’t hold you in your spot.”
The “greatest gamer” below seems to be a immediate reference to Elon Musk, anyone who at one position in time adopted Kotaku on Twitter and who is regarded to engage in video video games and has even shared gaming-linked memes on the online. (If I was billionaire I’d in no way contact the net all over again, allow on your own Twitter, but that’s just me.)
Most probably “game” is not a direct reference to a specific sport, but a participate in on terms. We know Elon at one stage read a reserve by Iain M. Banking companies titled “The Participant Of Games” which, in accordance to Musk, contained a “compelling image of a grand, semi-utopian galactic long term.” So in this context “game” likely implies the organization of operating Tesla, his involvement with SpaceX and his ongoing makes an attempt to make shitty subway solutions making use of electric automobiles and high-priced tunnels.
Or perhaps that time he bought “flamethrowers” which were just big, costly lighters. Or…he likes GTA On the web a lot. Who can say? Only Grimes seriously is aware and she’s too fast paced striving to recall why she and Musk tried using to title their youngster X Æ A-12.
It’s not stunning to hear Musk may possibly not be the greatest boyfriend in the earth, contemplating allegations that he has physically and verbally abused staff, has had in Grimes’ own text “immature” times and meltdowns on Twitter and when identified as a person making an attempt to help save children from a fatal condition a “pedo dude.” Yeah, does not seem to be like a fantastic boyfriend. But a wonderful gamer… I can obtain that.
