TravelGuides – Grimes seemingly shades ex Elon Musk in ‘Player of Games’

Grimes appears to make several subtle digs at ex-boyfriend Elon Musk in her new single, “Player of Games.”

Throughout the track, the 33-year-old singer – who split from the SpaceX founder and avid PC gamer in September – sings about being in love with the “greatest gamer.”

“I’m in love with the greatest gamer,” she croons, “but he’ll always love the game more than he loves me.”

According to, Musk was creating video games before he became a millionaire at 27 years old. The Tesla CEO, now 50, tweeted in January that he he still plays Halo, a military science fiction video game.

Speculation that Grimes’ new song could be about Musk becomes even more evident around the 0:36 mark of the lyric video, when she sings, “Sail away to the cold expanse of space, even love couldn’t keep you in your place.”

Musk exclusively told Page Six back in September that his work was a primary reason for his split from Grimes.

“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA,” he said at the time.

Grimes and Musk dated for three years and share one child together: son X Æ A-12, aka “Baby X.”

Musk shares five other children – twins Griffin and Xavier, 17, and triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai, 15 – with his first ex-wife, author Justine Wilson. Their first son, Nevada, was born in 2002 but died of sudden infant death syndrome at only 10 weeks old.

Musk was also previously married to “Westworld” star Talulah Riley. They married in 2010 and divorced in 2012, only to remarry in 2013. They divorced a second time in 2016.
