Grimes revealed that she’s plotting to “colonise Mars” fresh after her split from Elon Musk, but says she will do so “separately” from him so that she can build a “lesbian space commune”.
The singer jokingly told Page Six, “I’ll be colonising [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space commune.”
Grimes and Elon split up after three years at the end of last week. The pair raised their son together, X AE A-XII, but will be splitting custody of him following their separation.

Musk told the celebrity news site last week, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” adding that their decision to split was due to work abundance and not seeing each other enough.
“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or travelling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”
Musk’s $178 million SpaceX mission aims to get humans to Mars by 2026. The lighthearted comment from Grimes is thought to be a hint to this - while the pair had previously expressed their desire to head out to Jupiter’s moon, Europa, to test its habitability.
The “lesbian space commune” is also thought to be a nod to Grimes’ next record said to be a space opera “about a lesbian AI romance”.
The lore surrounding her sixth studio album was set in July where she revealed on Instagram that it would focus on two entities who “fall into a lesbian romance due to the fact that they are the only two fully AI beings in this universe”.
