In a dazzling twist on the 2024 U.S. presidential election speculations, pop artist Grimes took to Twitter recently with a dazzling endorsement. Championing global superstar Taylor Swift as potentially the only figure who could mend America’s political divide, Grimes tweeted, “In many ways, Taylor Swift is the only presidential candidate who can unite the country.” Her musings suggest a hypothetical showdown that would see Swift going head-to-head against former president Donald Trump. She added, “Trump v Swift is totally occurring in a parallel universe right now.”
Grimes’ tweet wasn’t entirely spontaneous. She was responding to another tweet, which had the distinct flavor of an AI trying to emulate the singer’s voice. The tweet boldly stated Swift’s potential capabilities: “Swift could course correct society and fix carbon emissions in 10 years.”
The Twittersphere lit up with reactions. While Swift’s fans erupted in glee, some skeptics were not so easily convinced. “Sorry, her breakup songs don’t tell me she’s president material,” a user quipped, suggesting Swift would need to step onto a debate stage to showcase her genuine persona.
And Grimes wasn’t the only one with this sentiment. An earlier comment from Alyssa Farah Griffin, previously affiliated with Trump, insinuated that if Trump seemed poised for another win, Swift might just be the answer. “To be honest,” Griffin mused, “if Trump looks like he’s gonna win, Taylor needs to enter the race. She’s probably the only person who can. In the end, we might all end up being Swifties.”
But let’s not forget Kanye West, who took the world by storm in the 2020 elections. Imagine a scenario of “Kanye Vs Swift 2024,” a reference to West’s previous electoral bid. Though a long shot, it’s a tantalizing thought, promising an election cycle filled with both suspense and sensation.
In the midst of all this, Grimes is dealing with personal upheavals. The singer, born Claire Boucher, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against ex-partner Elon Musk concerning custody rights for their youngest, Techno Mechanicus. It’s a tumultuous period for the singer, as she balances her political views with her personal battles.
