Grimes Gave Her And Elon Musk’s Baby A Haircut And It’s Getting Ridiculed
Grimes has given son X Æ A-12 a DIY haircut, and if we’re being brutally honest, it didn’t go well.
The musician, who shares her son with multibillionaire Elon Musk, decided to give her little boy a trim at home because, you know, we’re in the middle of a pandemic and all that.
Taking to Instagram, Grimes showed off her chopping skills with a picture of X Æ A-12 in the bath, and the caption, ‘Not sure this haircut went well, but he’s a Viking now.’
In the next slide, she showed off the trim from another angle, with a bear emoji covering the child’s face, writing, ‘Haircut inspired by The Last Kingdom on Netflix, which is a masterpiece.’
To be honest, yeah, I can see the resemblance between X Æ A-12’s cut and that of Uhtred Ragnarsson’s severely-shaved sides and long top knot.
But sadly, the people of the internet weren’t quite so empathetic, ripping into the pop star; not only for doing such a botched job, but for the fact she even decided to cut his hair in the first place.
‘Grimes giving her new baby an uneven and patchy haircut because she watched a show with Vikings and decided she wanted him to have a Viking haircut is… extremely on brand,’ one Twitter user wrote.
It’s great she’s cutting his hair but omg with how fast babies movie it’s scary to think she was using scissors [sic].
‘Who even gives an eight-month-old a haircut? Let alone with a huge pair of scissors,’ a third questioned.
Grimes and Musk shocked followers back in May last year when they confirmed they had chosen to name their child X Æ A-12.
New mum Grimes later took to Twitter to spell out the meaning behind the unusual name, explaining that ‘X’ stands for the ‘unknowable variable’; ‘Æ’ is her ‘elven spelling’ of artificial intelligence and/or love; and ‘A-12’ is the precursor to her and Musk’s favourite aircraft, SR-17.
‘No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent,’ she added.
She also added that the A in A-12 is short for Archangel, which she said is her favourite song.
In an interview with Joe Rogan, Musk later confirmed that ‘Æ’ is pronounced like ‘ash’, adding that A-12 was his contribution to the name.
