Claire, a Canadian singer-songwriter, whose stage name is Grimes, was, until recently, the third wife of Elon Musk, known for being one of the richest men in the world
Her roots are a mix of French-Canadian, Italian, and German-Ukrainian, she graduated from Lord Byng High School in Vancouver and then went to Montreal to enroll at McGill University to focus on neuroscience and the Russian language, but ultimately didn't finish her degrees studies there. She is self-taught in the musical career in which she has been successful and awarded.
She later chose her stage name, Grimes, to link to the MySpace network listing three musical genres. However, the grime genre itself refers to electronic dance music, with jungle, dancehall, and hip-hop influences, originating in London and emerging in the 2000s and whose style has fast rhythms, around 140 beats per minute.
In his lyrics between the genres Synth-pop, electropop, art pop, indie pop, dream pop, and experimental pop, often touch on science fiction and feminist themes. But her interests have also turned to other related industries, as she had a role as her voice in the role-playing video game Cyberpunk 2077 and participated as a judge in the music competition show Alter Ego.
The couple has always been very active with their Twitter accounts and how they met is curious because it was a result of a tweet by Grimes joking about Artificial Intelligence, which caught Elon's attention, and for which contacted her, and it could be deduced that it was that topic of common interest that brought them together from the first moment.
By the way, Elon Musk has just launched an AI company called X.AI, which will compete with Open IA, which he co-founded in 2015 and withdrew from in 2018.
During their relationship, they had 2 children: a boy named X Æ A-12 Musk and a girl named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, whose nickname is Y. This second baby was gestated in the surrogate modality because as Grimes explains, the first pregnancy was a great risk for her and that is why they made this decision. For Musk these are children number seven since he had five with his first wife Justine Wilson, and since with his previous wife Talulah Riley, whom he divorced in 2018, they had no children.
Just like Claire, who is eccentric and who offers presentations where she mixes technology and avant-garde proposals, there is a great variety among the wives of the richest men in the world. Some are characterized by being simple, intelligent, highly trained in specialized professions, and attractive to these men who have the world at their feet. Let's see other couples of these successful businessmen in the world of technology.
Priscilla Chan is the wife of Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Meta. She practiced pediatrics for many years and is currently engaged in philanthropy.
Lucinda Southworth is the wife of one of the founders of Google, Larry Page. She is recognized for her profession as a researcher and promoter at Stanford University.
Nicola Shanahan is an attorney and legal technologist specializing in the legal applications of neural networks. She hails from California and is the wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin. She is the founder and CEO of ClearAccessIP, a company dedicated to the management and automated valuation of patents.
Connie Snyder, married to Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer, is currently dedicated to philanthropy and her children. She was an outstanding professional in the field of Marketing and Public Relations.
Susan Dell, the wife of Dell Technologies founder Michael Dell, was a dedicated athlete who participated in marathons, triathlons, and cycling. She currently runs the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and has a fashion company.
Lauren Sánchez is the current partner of Jeff Bezos, creator of Amazon. She is a journalist and television presenter.
Finally, a common characteristic for most of them is that they dedicate themselves or preside over foundations with social purposes, supporting their husbands and being their right hand.
As Grimes and Elon Musk have said, they maintain an excellent relationship and do not rule out having more children in the future, since their current distance is due to multiple commitments that make their family life difficult due to their careers and commitments.
