Grimes may have tested positive for the coronavirus, but she’s not letting the deadly virus stop her from seeing the silver lining.
The pop star wrote on her Instagram Stories on Saturday, “Finally got COVID but weirdly enjoying the DayQuil fever dream…2021,” adding a leaf and fairy emoji. She shared her diagnosis over a screenshot of the single art for SZA‘s new track “Good Days,” adding, “This song is soooo” with a series of space, dragon, sparkle, and heart emojis. She did not mention whether her boyfriend, Elon Musk, or their infant child, X Æ A-Xii, have been infected, but that DayQuil fever dream is sure to take her six-month-old’s “bath rave for babies” to a whole new level.
This isn’t the first COVID-19 scare Grimes’s immediate family has faced over the past few months. In November, Musk—who previously predicted that there would be close to zero new coronavirus cases in the U.S. by the end of April 2020—took to his Twitter account to announce that “something extremely bogus is going on” with his multiple coronavirus tests. He wrote, “Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back negative, two came back positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid antigen test from BD.” Replying to commenters, he later added that he was experiencing “Symptoms of a typical cold. Nothing unusual so far.” In an interview with the New York Times in September, Musk also revealed that he also may have had the virus in January, but falsely claimed that it’s only dangerous “if you’re elderly and have pre-existing conditions.”
