One of her followers immediately commented with backlash.

“Grimes you are set, your opinion on ‘the housing market’ is invalid,” they replied.

Not one to back down, the mother-of-two shot back.

“First of all I couldn’t afford to buy a house that fits my kids in Austin atm without help from their dad which is INSANE cuz I’m a p successful artist. Secondly, these aren’t my opinions, I’ve just agreed to help out some actual experts/policy makers,” Grimes explained. “The over-regulation in Cali is anti innovation. Tx is pro innovation, (they let you blow up rockets for example haha). But if we want to move our. Most innovative companies to Tx we owe it to the citizens to protect their living Standards.”
