Claire Elise Boucher (Grimes), the musician and ex-partner of billionaire Elon Musk, has disapproved of Meta’s founder Mark Zuckerberg’s vision of the future of the metaverse.
It has been reported that she said that “if he oversees the metaverse, it is dead.” This Tweet came after The Independent made a Tweet saying that he does, in fact, oversee the Metaverse.
However, Grimes spoke about it to her 1.3 million followers. “If Zuck “oversees the Metaverse” it is dead and people who care about art and culture are building something else. Also, this is bad art. The quality of this image alone speaks to how wildly underqualified he is to build alternate reality, literally every indie game looks better.”
“They have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt they are not ethically capable of running something so powerful. And should not have the power they have now, assumably in reference to the scandals that Facebook/Meta have been involved in throughout the years.”
This Tweet came in response to The Independent’s announcement that Zuckerberg would feature on one of the tops, yet most controversial podcasts, hosted by Joe Rogan, the UFC commentator, and podcaster.
Despite her comments on Zuckerberg, Grimes has actually proven to be a fan of crypto and NFTs in general. In March 2021, she sold her own NFT art and music in a collection titled ‘WarNymph’. Her platform of choice was on Nifty Gateway, and it was sold for a total of $6 million. At that time, she described herself as a “crypto queen.”
Thus, with the huge multi-billion dollar brand that Meta, formerly Facebook, have, it is a possibility that upon full release they will have the top platform.
