Player of Games: All the lyrical evidence that Grimes’ new song is about ex Elon Musk

Fans have noticed that Canadian singer Grimes’ new song appears to be about her split with billionaire Elon Musk.

In “Player of Games,” released on December 3, Grimes appears to be making several veiled references to the 50-year-old Tesla and SpaceX CEO who has a one-year-old son, XÆA-Twelfth .

In the song’s lyrics video, Grimes holds a knight complete with a hood and face shield, while holding a dagger behind her back.

The first supposed mention of Musk in Grimes comes at the 22-second mark, when it says, “Baby how can I compare/to adventure over there/sailing away/to cold space/so love/I can’t keep you where you are.”

Confirmation of the news of their “semi-separation” Sixth page In September of this year, Musk said the couple decided to separate in part due to their professional commitments.

“Mostly, my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to primarily be in Texas or travel abroad and her work is primarily in Los Angeles,” he explained.

However, the Tesla boss said he and Grimes “have been on good terms” and “still see each other frequently.”

Musk’s quest for space isn’t the only purported reference that Grimes gives him in The Game Player.
