Elon Musk, Grimes attend Met Gala together amid reports they're dating

"Elon was researching the idea of joking about Rococo Basilisk, and when he saw Grimes had already joked about it, he reached out to her", a source told Page Six.

According to the publication, Grimes said that the inventor was the first person in three years who understood her joke.

Oh, and when they arrived on the Met's red carpet, both Musk and Grimes appeared to have adorned their outfits with Tesla swag.

Let us explain. They were joking (or trying to) about a thought experiment called "Roko's Basilisk" which is about an all-powerful artificial intelligence from the future that punishes those who did not help bring about its existence. She revealed in an interview back then that the character is doomed to be tortured by an AI, but was also a bit like Marie Antoinette.

The outing with Grimes comes nine months after Musk and actress Amber Heard confirmed their split on social media, after having been linked together since late 2016 and going public with their romance in April 2017. The singer is known for her albums namely Visions (2012) and Art Angels (2015).

Musk is well-known for warning of an impending A.I. apocalypse, which he believes is more risky than nuclear war. She began writing music and posting it on MySpace in 2007. "Can finish [the album] fast and I have a deep well of shit this time, like sooooo many songs so after my album I'll be able to consistently release more music".

She was a double major in psychology and philosophy, with minors in Russian and electro-acoustics before she dropped out of school to follow her music career. Grimes told him: "Glad ur finally listening to cyberpunk speedwae hahaha".

A week ago, they had another online in-joke.

In case you need a refresher, Grimes is a Canadian musician and Musk is a billionaire CEO.

The newspaper said the pair have been "quietly dating", but their relationship is less secretive now they've attended the biggest night on fashion's calendar.
