Elon Musk’s appearence on the Joe Rogan Experience show was easily one of the most popular episodes among all of the top podcaster’s repertoire. Today, Musk, the Tesla founder, appeared on the program again to talk about the economy, the coronavirus, and even his newborn baby, Hot New Hip Hop reported.
As it was just noted, Musk has been on the podcast before, proving to be quite eventful the first time because he smoked weed, despite the fact he didn’t inhale the smoke as many fans have noticed. Additionally, Musk and his girlfriend, the Montreal artist, Grimes, recently welcomed a newborn baby into the world.
What sparked the most controversy was the name they gave for the baby. In recent news, Grimes shared what inspired the name of the baby, although, as it turns out, the government won’t actually allow them to use such a title.
Right near the beginning of the conversation with Joe Rogan, Musk explained that the first two letters of the baby’s name are pronounced “Ash.” Musk claimed “A-12” was his contribution, and Grimes came up with the rest.
The use of the phrase, “A-12,” was inspired by his favorite aircraft. And perhaps most interestingly, Elon Musk said on the podcast that he would be eliminating all of his material possessions. Musk claims it would make him less of a target for the media.
He said that being designated as a billionaire is actually a bad thing. The term, “billionaire,” is a pejorative. You can check out Elon Musk’s words in the interview below:
As it was previously reported, Elon Musk and Grimes announced the birth of their child earlier this year. Despite the fact the child’s birth is big news for Elon Musk, the child’s supposed name, “X Æ A-12” was what really made it to the top of the headlines.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, fans online have been wondering how to pronounce it ever since it was first revealed. The California government, however, said it wasn’t possible to include a number in a child’s name, likely to avoid confusion in the system.
