It’s been a whirlwind few years for Grimes; she shacked up with Elon Musk, released Miss Anthropocene, got into a weird internet feud with Azealia Banks, had her first baby — dubbing her son X AE A-XII Musk, which led to some ruthless trolling online — and eventually announced her split from the father of her child.
And after all that, and some whinging about the trials of fame, she’s now dropping hints that she might be pregnant with her second child.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s response to Elon Musk is pretty simple — amounting to the same thing she’s been saying all along … that the guy’s gotta pony up. We got SEW on Capitol Hill and asked if she thought the Tesla chief would start paying his fair share in taxes after the scolding she gave him online over what she perceives as him taking advantage of loopholes … and avoiding the IRS as a result.
Tesla is led by Elon Musk, who was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2021 earlier this week. Drivers are expected to maintain control over the vehicles while using the technology, however.
A leading Paris taxi company has suspended its use of Tesla Model 3 cars following a deadly accident involving one of the vehicles over the weekend. In a statement, Taxi firm G7 said it would be suspending the use of 37 Tesla Model 3 cars in its fleet until a police probe into the Saturday incident was complete.
Initial findings have suggested that the accident was not caused by technical issues, G7’s leadership and France’s transport minister have said. In a statement released through its public relations representation Rumeur Publique, G7 said it was “amazed to learn of the terrible accident that occurred on Saturday evening in Paris which involved a taxi driver.” The company said the taxi driver was not on duty at the time of the accident and had been traveling privately with his family.
Elon Musk Asks Twitter If He Should Sell 10 Percent Of His Tesla Stock.
Another zany tweet or a real question? Elon Musk polled his more than 62 million Twitter followers Saturday about whether he should sell 10 percent of his Tesla shares, insisting he would do as voters say. The over-the-top electric car maker’s query follows a proposal by Congressional Democrats to tax the super-wealthy more heavily by targeting stocks, which are usually only taxed when sold.
The world’s richest man, Elon Musk has promised to sell stocks of his company Tesla and contribute $6b to the United Nations if the body can prove that the money will end world hunger. Last week, the director of the United Nation’s World Food Programme said if the world’s top billionaires just donated a fraction of their worth, millions of people who are at risk of starving to death can be saved.
David Beasley, director of the UN World Food Programme, said on CNN last week that a “one-time” donation from the top 400 billionaires, whose net worths are ever growing, in the U.S. could help save the lives of 42 million people this year. “The world’s in trouble and you’re telling me you can’t give me .36% of your net worth increase to help the world in trouble, in times like this?” he said “What if it was your daughter starving to death? What if it was your family starving to death? Wake up, smell the coffee, and help.” Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX who has an estimated net worth of $151 billion, according to Forbes, has now replied to a tweet questioning the group’s figures.
Experts said Mr Musk – who is currently ranked as the world’s richest person with an estimated fortune of $241bn – could reach the milestone thanks to his space exploration business SpaceX.
It is thought the business “may eventually be the most highly valued company in the world – in any industry”, according to experts.
Adam Jonas, an analyst at the investment bank Morgan Stanley, remarked SpaceX was “challenging any preconceived notion of what was possible and the timeframe possible, in terms of rockets, launch vehicles and supporting infrastructure”.
World’s richest man, Elon Musk and girlfriend Grimes have reportedly broken up. In a statement to Page Six, Elon said, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms” “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA.
