Ever since Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal made their red carpet debut in 2021, we've been obsessed with this very cool couple. The Normal People star may have won our hearts as Connell but Phoebe has a very successful career of her own.

The Californian singer was nominated for four Grammys last year - including Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album for her second record Punisher. She's also collaborated with everyone from The 1975 to Lorde and The Killers, and appeared on Taylor Swift's re-recorded Red (Taylor's Version) on the track 'Nothing New'. None other than Phoebe Waller-Bridge directed the music video to her 2020 track 'Saviour Complex' (which Paul Mescal starred in) and her most recent track 'Sidelines' was featured in the TV adaptation of Sally Rooney's Conversation With Friends. She also has her own record label, Saddest Factory.

When is Phoebe Bridgers' UK tour?

Phoebe is playing dates across the UK and Europe this summer. As well as Glastonbury, she'll be at Latitude festival and is headlining four nights at the O2 Academy in Brixton in July. (Unfortunately tickets are already sold out.)

How did Phoebe Bridgers meet Paul Mescal?

The pair met over a Instagram Live interview with Wonderland(which you can still watch) in the summer of 2020 . Paul was reportedly a fan of her music, and apparently listed one of her songs as a favourite on his Raya dating profile. After months of speculation, the pair were spotted together at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire in October 2020, then in May 2021 they were seen together in Shoreditch, East London. They went 'official' and made their red carpet debut in Los Angeles at the ACMA Art + Film Gala in November 2021.

In February 2019, Phoebe Bridgers was one of several women interviewed in a New York Times report that detailed multiple accounts of alleged abuse by musician Ryan Adams. Bridgers claimed that Adams reached out to her in 2014, when she was 20, offering to help with her music career. She alleged that their correspondence turned into a romantic relationship that eventually became emotionally abusive. Ryan Adams denied all the allegations in a statement from his lawyer to The New York Times.

Is Phoebe Bridgers on social media?

Yes, she's very active on Twitter and Instagram where she often posts pictures with her dog, Maxine.
