Grimes

ABC

In a recent TikTok, electronic-alternative musician Grimes — who happens to be dating Elon Musk, one of the world's richest men — attempted to pitch artificial intelligence as "the fastest path to communism."

"I have a proposition for the communists. So, typically, most of the communists I know are not big fans of AI But, if you think about it, AI is actually the fastest path to communism," she began. "So, if implemented correctly, AI could actually, theoretically solve for abundance. Like, we could totally get to a situation where nobody has to work. Everybody is provided for with a comparable state of being, comfortable living. AI could automate all the farming, weed out systematic corruption, thereby bringing us as close as possible to genuine equality. So basically, everything everybody loves about communism but without the collective farm — 'cause, let's be real, enforced farming is really not a vibe."

The 7 Weirdest Moments from Elon Musk Hosting "SNL"

It wasn't as bad as we were expecting...but it was still bad.

On Saturday, Elon Musk hosted Saturday Night Live, and it honestly could have gone a lot worse.

He was a controversial choice for host, but unlike a lot of guests who should have more important things to be doing, Musk was actually in most of the sketches and played a variety of characters, from a murderous Pennsylvanian priest to a horny Icelandic producer.

Azealia Banks is not a reliable source of information.

The "212" rapper has engaged in countless social media feuds with everyone from Rihanna to Sia to Disney Channel star Skai Jackson (who was 14 at the time…). She has claimed to perform animal sacrifices as part of witchcraft rituals, once labelled Lizzo a "millennial mammy," and has been kicked off Twitter more than once for spouting homophobic slurs. She defended Donald Trump's "Muslim ban" and told him she is "proud as f***" of him as a fellow Gemini for winning the 2016 election, but later called him "a f***ing idiot" and "disqualified" him from his Gemini status.

Kate Hudson's Meditating Daughter Is Going to Be a Jedi

Kate Hudson and Danny Fujikawa are raising a future Jedi Knight.

Instagram

In the first and therefore best movie in the Star Wars universe — Episode I – The Phantom Menace — a young Anakin Skywalker is declared, by the Jedi council, too old to be trained.

At roughly nine years old, this seems strange — especially since Luke in A New Hope (AKA Star Wars),was not even aware that Force powers existed before the age of 19. But the Jedi, fundamentally a religious order of ascetic monks, subscribe to the belief that training in the temperament and discipline of a Jedi Knight must begin as early as possible.

"Technoking" Elon Musk Is the Perfect Refutation of Meritocracy

The SpaceX and Tesla CEO has a new title, but his tragiccomic arc is the same as ever.

In a Monday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it was revealed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the company's CFO, Zach Kirkhorn, have both received new titles.

Musk is taking on the mantle of "Technoking," while Kirkhorn is becoming "Master of Coin."

To clarify, no, this is not an update from a high school Sci-Fi Fantasy Club that accidentally got mixed in with the SEC filings. This is part of vital regulatory documentation for one of the most valuable companies on Earth that includes a Game of Thrones reference and a "badass" adolescent nickname for someone who — on any given day — might be the wealthiest person on Earth.
