    "I am not my BF's spokesperson."

    Grimes and Elon Musk are long-term partners who welcomed their first child, famously named X Æ A-Xii, or X for short, last year.

    The singer has fielded loads of prying questions about the nature of their relationship, given Elon's status as one of the world's wealthiest people and reputation for being problematic on and off social media.

    JYSK, Elon is the CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX. He also co-founded Neuralink and OpenAI, two tech companies with very futuristic goals for artificial intelligence. Elon unveiled plans for Tesla's new human-like robot, which relies on AI, last week.

    People had some thoughts on the Tesla Bot, as they generally do whenever Elon does anything mildly to very outrageous. It happens a lot.

    Anyway, Grimes is tired of folks online directing their negative feelings about Elon toward her, and she demanded they put a stop to the digital harassment in a recent TikTok video that doubled as a defense of her boyfriend.

    "Stop harassing me on this app over fake news and I am not my BF's spokesperson," she captioned it. The video saw Grimes participating in TikTok's "Hot or Not" trend while wearing a set of butterfly wings and stroking a robotic dog.

    Grimes seemingly tried to debunk a handful of critical theories about Elon, and his various business ventures, in text captions that appeared onscreen throughout the TikTok clip.

    "Is he hot or is he out to destroy big oil? Is he hot or will he put the first human on Mars? Is he hot or is he giving an $100 million [sic] prize for scalable ideas to remove CO2 from earth's atmosphere? Is he hot or is he developing batteries that don't use cobalt therapy eliminating unethical mining practices from our cars and phones?" the captions read.
