Grimes is worried about the future of women amid the growing influence of artificial intelligence.
The Canadian sensation, born Claire Elise Boucher, recently addressed the use of A.I. in a heated debate about the topic “Has the sexual revolution failed?” The 35-year-old aired her opinions on the issue in her first public appearance after her secret baby drama.
The Bazaar Women of the Year Award honoree, who shares two children with Elon Musk, quietly welcomed a third child with the billionaire. The boy’s existence was recently revealed following a snippet from an upcoming biography about the Tech mogul.
Grimes Worries About Women Becoming ‘Obsolete In Five Years’ Because Of A.I
The “Genesis” songstress was spotted on the night of September 13 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. The media personality joined the podcaster Sarah Haider to oppose the motion “Has the sexual revolution failed?”
The duo faced off against the British journalist Louise Perry and podcaster Anna Khachiyan, who supported that the sexual revolution had failed. During the live debate, Daily Mail reported that Grimes aired her concerns about the world her children with Musk would grow up in.
According to the “Shinigami Eyes” hitmaker, she feared the growing influence of A.I. girlfriends would negatively affect the future of the female species. “Women could be obsolete in five years,” the Canadian singer claimed, adding, “I hope living women still have a chance!”
Her fears also extended to the pornography industry and how the digital world has made it “a lot easier to access” for everyone to access sexual content. Although she noted the cons of porn, the 4-time Juno Award Winner stated the industry could improve its performances.
“I wouldn’t want my kids to see it. I think it harms relationships. But we can be making better porn. Why are the scripts so bad? Why is the music so bad? Why isn’t there beautiful cinematic porn?” Grimes asked the audience before veering off to parenthood and sexual relationships.
“There are no classes about how to be a good father or mother in any school that I am aware of. Conversely, I know many people who experience satisfaction from unconventional sex lives,” the 35-year-old claimed. “The sexual revolution is good if we can get to the finish line.”
Still on the world she wished for her children to grow up in, the Vancouver native stressed that “every job should offer childcare” and stated there were numerous old people “withering away” that “want to be around babies.”
The debate ended in the visual artist’s favor as she and the podcaster Haider won by 51 percent following an audience vote against their competitors. The “Oblivion” hitmaker’s A.I debate came months after wholeheartedly embracing artificial intelligence in her music.
In April, the media personality’s longtime manager, Daouda Leonard, revealed the entertainer had parted ways with Columbia Records after two years. The mother of three similarly announced her freedom from the record label in a tweet about A.I.
Grimes encouraged fans to create A.I songs using her voice following a viral track made using Drake and The Weekend’s voices. “I’ll split 50% royalties on any successful AI-generated song that uses my voice,” the artist’s message read.
“Same deal as I would with any artist I collab with. Feel free to use my voice without penalty. I have no label and no legal bindings,” the 35-year-old claimed.
Grimes Confirms Birth Of Secret Third Child While Clearing Up Feud Rumors
Days before appearing at the debate, the “Nightmusic” songstress addressed the revelation of her secret third child with the SpaceX founder. In a lengthy message on X, the Webby Award winner confessed to keeping the boy named Techno Mechanicus hidden from the public.
Instead of a typical baby announcement, Grimes confirmed her son’s existence while setting the record straight about her speculated feud with Musk’s other partner, Shivon Zilis. The billionaire welcomed twins with the Neuralink executive in 2021.
According to the “I Wanna Be Software” singer, her issues with the other baby mama sprouted from poor communication about her children. The Canadian sensation noted this had caused differences in the past. However, she had forgiven Zilis and implored her fans to do the same.
“Women are so often pitted against each other. Speaking with Shivon, it’s very evident she’s an amazing human, and we both just want what’s best for our kids,” Grimes penned.
On the subject of children, the visual artist noted that she hid her third child because she wanted to protect her babies. “I wish I could show u how cute little Techno is, but my priority rn is keeping my babies out of the public eye. Plz respect that at this time,” the iHeartRadio MMVAs winner concluded her tweet.
