We love love—even better if we’re talking about the rich, famous people type of love. These new celeb couples have been some of the few bright spots in the tire fire that has been 2018 thus far. From Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind engagement and (predictable) breakup to Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp getting caught smooching, this year has basically been like a series of quirky rom-coms—and we have loved every minute. (Of course, like any rom-com, some of these couplings weren’t meant to last the year—or even the month—but we’ll #neverforget.)
2018 has so far been the year of surprises, surprise couples, that is. From Elon Musk and Grimes making their MET Gala debut to finding out Ariana Grande has a thing for funny men, the new year isn’t holding back. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the newest pairings (and some old ones). As the saying goes, ’New Year, New Boo?”
Elon Musk and Grimes
One of the most *interesting* couplings of 2018, inventor Musk and artis Grimes made their debut at this year’s Met Gala after one month of dating. Musk and Vancouver-born Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) bonded over their love of Artificial Intelligence. According to Page Six, the pair met online, with Musk reaching out after finding a joke Grimes had tweeted three years ago (it’s too AI to understand). While only a month in to their lovefest, Musk and Grimes seem to be on the same page when it comes to AI jokes and fashion’s biggest night. The pair reportedly designed the musician’s Met dress together over dinner, and Grimes supported her beau by rocking a Tesla choker on the carpet (I mean, it is out of this world). Musk was previously in a relationship with actress Amber Heard until August 2017.
