She now prefers to be called “c,” presumably an abbreviation of her first name. The single letter is also the symbol for the speed of light in a vacuum, as she says in her interview. The influence of her aerospace engineer boyfriend, Elon Musk, shows through with this statement.

She also shared information about her newest album, “Miss_Anthrop0cene,” labeled after the goddess of climate change. Her newest album is meant to convey the beauty of climate change. “I want to make climate change fun,” she said, “I see the polar bear and want to kill myself… I want to make it beautiful.”

Grimes’ work is very unique in its sound and style, and fans are now wondering if the execution of Grimes means the artist’s style will be vastly different as she switches personas. As a talented young woman in the music industry, many are looking forward to what her next chapter has in store.
