Elon Musk shoots down his ex-girlfriend Grimes’ desire to get elf ear modifications

Elon Musk revealed he is not a fan of his ex-girlfriend Grimes’ plans to get elf-like ear modifications.

On Monday, the 34-year-old musician — born Claire Boucher — tried to sound out her 1.3 million Twitter followers about the possibility of getting new pointy ears.

But the 51-year-old Tesla CEO jumped into her mentions to to suggest that she wouldn’t be happy with the outcome if she got the unusual surgery.

Not a fan: Elon Musk, 51, shared his disapproval earlier this week after his ex-girlfriend Grimes, 34, expressed interest in getting elf ear modifications on Twitter; seen in 2018 in NYC

‘2 years ago I made an appt with a great plastic surgeon, thought I might want to change things up by my mid 30s, but then I forgot and never thought about what I should do,’ admitted the iconoclastic performer. ‘Any face mods y’all think would look good on me? (Elf ears isn’t an option, that’s a separate quest).’

In another tweet, she shared her interest in getting ‘vampire teeth caps’ in either Los Angeles or Austin, Texas.

She also asked her fans for recommendations on someone to perform elf ear modifications, though she added, ‘Still debating this surgery cuz cartilage doesn’t heal so it requires permanent stitches.’

Time for a change: Grimes revealed she made an appointment two years earlier with a 'great plastic surgeon,' but she was only now following up on her desire for body modifications

She added that it ‘just seems unhealthy how every1 in media hides body mods,then ppl feel self conscious,’ though it wasn’t clear if she was referring to more traditional modifications and cosmetic surgeries, or changes outside the spectrum of human appearances.

‘Im also less interested in conventional beauty (I will keep my nose),’ she added, before asking her fans for recommendations on procedures she could get and noting that her plastic surgeon is Dr. Chia Chi Kao.

‘Also, has anyone done elf ear mods with a good outcome?’ she added in a follow-up tweet.

She admitted she was ‘scared’ about the procedure and the potential to impact her ‘ear cartilage,’ which could be ‘risky’ as a ‘musician,’ though she had ‘wanted it [her] whole life.’ Grimes previously revealed in 2012 that she had developed tinnitus, a persistent ringing in the ears that can be caused by exposure to loud sounds.

But Elon, with whom she shares her confusingly named children X Æ A-12 and Exa Dark Sideræl, jumped into her replies on Tuesday to opine that ‘The downside of elf ear surgery probably outweighs the upside.’

Grimes didn’t fight him on it, and instead admitted that ‘this sounds like a job for crispr,’ referring to a form of gene editing. ‘Sad to be born just a few generations too early,’ she lamented.

Grimes and Elon began their relationship back in 2018 and reportedly connected after learning that they both came up with the same pun on Twitter.

The singer and electronic musician welcomed their son X Æ A-12 (pronounced Ex Ash A Twelve) on May 4, 2020, though they were later forced to change the name to X Æ A-Xii due to California naming laws.

In September of the following year, Grimes revealed that the two had ‘semi-separated,’ though they still lived together as they raised their child.

In January, she revealed that they were back together but ‘very fluid,’ while also sharing that they had welcomed a second child, Exa Dark Sideræl, via surrogate in December 2021.

As of March, the couple had broken up again.
