Phoebe Bridgers opens up about first-ever Grammy nominations

Speaking to The New York Times, Bridgers opened up about where she was when she heard that she’d been nominated.

“I was in bed with a migraine – these things give me a lot of anxiety. Then I saw all these messages from my mom – she was crying and sent a picture of a bottle of champagne she bought two days ago that she hadn’t wanted me to know about, just in case nothing happened.”

The “Motion Sickness” singer also went into the backstory of how she came to cover Goo Goo Dolls’ 1998 hit “Iris” with Maggie Rogers.

“It started as just a riff. I’d rediscovered that song after watching the movie Treasure Planet, and then I just made a joke on Twitter that if Donald Trump loses, I’ll cover ‘Iris’. And I let the tide of the internet take me wherever it would. I wanted to do it for charity, and Maggie suggested Fair Fight, which was such a good idea.”

Bridgers also divulged who else she’d love to collaborate with if given the opportunity, saying, “If I could conquer Bob Dylan, I feel like life would be pretty complete”.

The 63rd annual Grammy Awards will be hosted by Trevor Noah and take place on Sunday 31 January 2021.
