The Kid Laroi Got Financial Advice From Elon Musk
You know you’re in good company if you hang out with Elon Musk backstage during the SNL Afterparty. Even better is when he offers financial advice, free of charge.
That was the Kid Laroi .
The teenage star was spotted chatting with the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, a South African-born company. He was also the world’s most wealthy person, at the right time and place.
Laroi (realname Charlton Howard), recounted his chance meeting with the billionaire businessman while speaking with Australia’s Nova radio network.
“He is a down-to-earth guy who likes to just hang out with people,” he told hosts Fitzy and Wippa. “So I went up and asked him. He basically said that he would tell me to invest in something I love. This was great advice, I thought.
Laroi was a precocious Sydneysider who now calls Las Angeles his home. He committed Musk’s guidance to her memory.
” You know that you expect someone to give a complete plan. That’s what you did. I was astonished when I realized that this is the best financial advice anyone could give because if you don’t believe in something, how can anybody else believe in it?” he continues. He could give me some investment advice. But if I don’t believe in it, why would I do it? ?”
The fortuitous meeting happened after Laroi made his SNL debut in May 2021, when he performed “Without You” with Miley Cyrus. Musk was the host of the evening.
The 18-year-old Grammy nominee also gave Nova listeners some fashion tips of his own (“my rule is that I don’t wear band t-shirts that I don’t listen to”) and walked them through the origins of “Thousand Miles” (“this one was when I about when I first met my girlfriend…my perspective changed”), his latest Billboard Hot 100 hit.
“Thousand miles” reached No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is the first number lifted from Laroi’s forthcoming debut LP, the followup to his chart-leading F*ck Love mixtape.
The Kid Laroi is currently in Australia for his End Of The World tour, which kicks off Thursday (May 26) at Qudos Bank Arena in his hometown.
