Tesla CEO Elon Musk and edgy Canadian pop artist Grimes officially "came out" as a couple at this year's Met Gala. The two reportedly bonded over nerdy AI Twitter humor, which is not much of a surprise when you consider the musician's fondness for a sort of spacey cyberpunk aesthetic. The space-minded scientist seems to have picked the right date - she definitely came through with a galactic goth getup.
While the coupling makes sense intellectually, the duo brought to mind many pop culture odd-couples. The comparisons became a viral twitter meme, ranging from Scott Pilgrim's Ramona Flowers and Gideon Graves, to The Breakfast Club's Allison and Andrew. All jokes aside, we think these two could have a stellar relationship. Wedding vows in space, anyone?
