Remember when news broke that Elon Musk and Grimes are dating after their first public appearance at the Met Gala? Well the two are making headlines again after Grimes tweeted that she is legally changing her name, and Elon Musk was a big influence.
Born Claire Boucher, the artist announced that her new name will be c (lowercase and italicized), a reference to scientific shorthand for the speed of light. Grimes, soon to be known as c says she's wanted to change her name to that for as long as she can remember. She also mentioned to her fans and followers that this would be ‘much better’ for her.
Check out her tweet:
For Grimes' fans, don't worry...she will continue to make music under the name 'Grimes', and c will be strictly personal
When asked if this was her tech-mogul-boyfriend's influence, this what she responded with:
They are a very interesting and adorable couple! By the way, the name change is so unique and so brilliant!
