Elon Musk slams Sam Smith’s ‘Devil’ Grammy performance: ‘End of Days’ Sam Smith and Kim Petras didn’t finish their Grammy Awards performance of “Unholy” on Sunday, according to Elon Musk.
The Twitter CEO tweeted to compare the diabolical act on his platform to Apocalypse: End of Days vibes under a clip of the pair. If he is the devil, then we have nothing to worry about.
They said. Smith wore red leather and a cape with raised horns for the show, while Petras danced offstage in a cage of flames.
The performance sparked outrage online, with conservatives calling it devil worship. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas tweeted, “This… is bad.”
Fans of the pair, both 30, were quick to clap, with one user writing on social media: If Sam Smith was thin, cis, and straight, he wouldn’t be ridiculed for how he posed and dressed.
The duo created Grammy history by winning Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Singer, who identifies as non-binary, and Petras, who transitioned as female as a teenager.
Sunday became the first non-binary and transgender artist to take home Grammy gold in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. Created music history as artists.
I am the first transgender woman to win the award, said an emotional Petras, wearing crimson. I want to thank all the incredible transgender veterans before me who opened these doors.
