On Sept. 24, Elon confirmed that he and Grimes decided to hit the brakes on their relationship. "We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms," Elon told People.

Following an increase of paparazzi attention, Grimes decided this was the perfect opportunity to have some fun and troll the hounding photographers.

Over the weekend, photographers captured Grimes reading through Karl Marx's much-debated "Communist Manifesto" book, while wearing a futuristic brown outfit that looked straight out of the upcoming movie Dune.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Oct. 2, the artist offered her take on both the curious scenario and the current status of her relationship with the Tesla CEO and father of their 16-month-old son X Æ A-12 Musk

"I was really stressed when paparazzi wouldn't stop following me this wk," she wrote, "but then I realized it was opportunity to troll."

She added, "Full disclosure I'm still living with e and I am not a communist." 

However, the "Genesis" singer clarified that while "there are some very smart ideas in this book," she's "more interested in a radical decentralized ubi."

"Regardless," she went on, "my opinions on politics are difficult to describe because the political systems that inspire me the most have not yet been implemented. Anyway if paparazzi keep chasing me perhaps I will try to think of more ways to meme - suggestions welcome!"
