The 33-year-old artist, whose real name is Claire Boucher, revealed in a Vogue video of herself getting ready for the Met Gala that her 1-year-old son, X Æ A-Xii, calls her by her first name and not "mama."
"I think having a baby was a big rebirth for me, artistically. Being a mother feels weird for me to say for some reason. I don't identify with that word," she admitted in the clip. "X says 'Claire,' but he doesn’t say ‘mama’…like, maybe he can sense my distaste for the word 'mother.'"
"Which, I don’t even know why I have a distaste for it, I respect it…I [just] can’t identify with it, weirdly,” she added.
Grimes shares X with Elon Musk. The couple welcomed their first child together in May of last year.
