Grimes Is Now Referring To Herself As The “Marie Antoinette-Esque Symbol of Inequality”

  • Grimes is now complaining about having “severe PTSD from public life” and has likened herself to the famously extravagant queen who was guillotined during the French Revolution.
  • “Somehow ended up as some kind of Marie Antoinette-esque symbol for inequality in the pop stan community, which frankly is fairly entertaining and I’m not mad at that,” Grimes said in a TikTok video.
  • A “symbol of inequality” sort of comes with the territory when you start dating a billionaire, defend his illegal union-busting, and yet still claim to have a vision for an egalitarian utopia.

Bonnie Stiernberg from InsideHook writes:

“Since her split with Elon Musk — with whom she shares baby X Æ A-Xii — back in September, Grimes has kept a relatively low profile online. But in a new TikTok this week captioned “back on the internet #sigh,” the musician claimed she has developed “severe PTSD from public life” and “debilitating anxiety about being online” and likened herself to Marie Antoinette, the extravagant queen who was famously guillotined during the French Revolution.

“Somehow ended up as some kind of Marie Antoinette-esque symbol for inequality in the pop stan community, which frankly is fairly entertaining and I’m not mad at that,” Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) said in the video.

Of course, we’d argue becoming a symbol of inequality sort of comes with the territory when you start dating a billionaire, and the Marie Antoinette comparisons only become more apt when you defend your boyfriend’s illegal union-busting while simultaneously claiming to be some sort of progressive with a vision for an egalitarian utopia…”
