Musk is rethinking his "attachment to the material world" and will be "selling almost all physical possessions," he said on Twitter last week.
“I’m slightly sad about it [selling his houses] … possessions weigh you down. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I don’t spend time in most of them and that doesn’t seem like a good use of assets,” he said on Rogan's podcast.
Since Musk became a billionaire, people see him differently, he said.
Musk and his girlfriend Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, welcomed a baby boy into the world May 4 and named him X Æ A-12.
Rogon asked Musk how to pronounce the name, to which Musk replied, “X Ash A 12.”
Musk says the X is just “X” and the A-12 is just “A 12.” Musk said it was Grimes’ idea — she “mostly came up with the name.”
Grimes has also tweeted an explanation of their son’s name. The A-12 part is based on the Archangel-12 plane, and the precursor to their favorite aircraft, the SR-71.
