"They were both poking fun at AI".
The joke centred on the Roko's Basilisk thought experiment, which considers a future in which all-powerful AI punishes those who did not help it into existence.
Whatever Elon Musk wants he most probably gets. Not only have the pair massively raised awareness of an idea that could legitimately spell the end of the human race if it comes into fruition, they have also potentially given us one of the weirdest celebrity pairings in recent memory.
"A source tells us the pair met around a month ago online, of course, through a joke Musk had planned to tweet but discovered Grimes had already made, dealing with the complications of artificial intelligence", Page Six reports.
Musk's joke involved merging this thought experiment with a pun using "Rococo", the 18th-century baroque style of French architecture.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and musician Grimes went public with their new relationship Monday when they strolled the red carpet together at the Met Gala in New York City. Adding that the character is 'is doomed to be eternally tortured by an artificial intelligence, but she's also kind of like Marie Antoinette'. Musk wore a white tuxedo jacket and a collarless shirt, while Grimes rocked a futuristic space-warrior-inspired ensemble.
Claire Boucher, known professionally as Grimes, has received widespread acclaim for her lip-smacking blend of pop, electronic, indie rock, and noise music.
Earlier this year Musk tweeted out a Grimes video, calling it the "best music video art I've seen in a while". In 2010, The New York Times had lauded her studio album "Visions" as "one of the most impressive albums of the year so far". She dropped out of school to follow her music career.
Grimes is also a major in philosophy and psychology, with minors in electro-acoustics and Russian.
"Sounds great riding my cyborg", the tech billionaire replied.
