The SpaceX and Tesla entrepreneur made the tongue-in-cheek comment at the recent Viva Tech event.
People have always said that there is something otherworldly about Elon Musk and now he has come out and confirmed it... well, sort of.

Speaking via webcam during an interview at Europe's Viva Tech event this week, Musk was quick to offer a tongue-in-cheek reply when the host quipped: "Some people believe you are an alien."

"I am an alien," Musk replied.

"You are? Now you are uncovered," the host replied.

"Yes, I tell people I'm an alien but nobody believes me," Musk confirmed.
While Musk was probably just having a laugh, it's inevitable that his comments will fuel conspiracy theories about his life and enormous successes in the tech industry.

There are also some who have perceived his remarks as more metaphorical than literal.

"This sentiment captures the unique experience of having a different and powerful way of thinking, relating, and perceiving the world, which can indeed feel like being an alien from another planet," wrote Twitter user Davoid Soiza.

Ultimately, though, his comments were most likely intended as little more than a joke.

He’s an Auton. Dr. Who called it in 1970.

He reminds me of that cat who used to say he's not saying it's aliens but its aliens.

Something like this was to be expected because he keeps saying there's no evidence aliens have ever visited earth when being asked about it.

He does seem like an ends justifies the means sort and has said things to indicate that. He also seems a bit Aspergers-ish and not huge on empathy.

I had my money on Mnuchin. It's the way he tics all the time. He looks uncomfortable in his skin.
