Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk‘s ex-girlfriend Grimes says that Meta Platforms Inc META CEO Mark Zuckerberg isn’t the right person to run the metaverse.
On Friday, she went on Twitter to say Zuckerberg is “under qualified” to launch the metaverse.
Claire Boucherthe Canadian musician known as Grimes, expressed concerns about Zuckerberg overseeing the virtual world.
She also mocked Zuckerberg’s metaverse avatar and said, “This is bad art,” and even an indie game looks better than this.
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

Grimes spoke about Zuckerberg in response to his recent interview with Joe Rogan.
Zuckerberg has been advocating for the metaverse for quite a long time. Recently, he said the metaverse is a “massive opportunity” for several reasons, and he feels strongly that developing metaverse platforms will “unlock hundreds of billions of dollars.”
Last year, Grimes launched a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) called the “WarNympth Collection.” The 10 NFTs brought in over $5.8 million, selling out in under 20 minutes.
An avid video games and sci-fi lover, Grimes recently tweeted that she wants to modify her ears to look more elf-like.
Also, has anyone done elf ear mods with a good outcome? Im scared about ear cartilage having a hard time healing. Especially as a musician this surgery seems risky but I’ve wanted it my whole life. Curious about peoples experiences !
