However, weeks later, she made comments about trans athletes and youth, saying: “And you know with that LGBT, they’ll wish they never put the T on the end of it because, particularly in women’s sports, they’re going to have so many problems. You know, even that LGBT in the schools, it’s the devil, it’s not of God.”

While headlining Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena, Bridgers took a moment to address the venue’s namesake. “So, Margaret Court,” she began. “Fuck that stupid-ass, dumbass bitch. Fuck that stupid cunt. Change your name!”
After Bridgers led the crowd in shouting, “Fuck Margaret Court”, she added: “I think hate is undervalued. I think it’s a fucking weird white supremacist idea that hate is bad or something. You know what I mean?
“It’s like hate is like what moves things throughout history. I hate that stupid bitch. Hate is how you protect yourself. What, are you never supposed to be angry, ever?”
Meanwhile, Bridgers has teamed up with jewellery brand Catbird for a new lyric-themed collection. The line features a variety of new and previously sold-out charms with designs that her music has inspired. As part of the collaboration, Catbird is donating $25,000 (£21,000) to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Bridgers’ supergroup boygenius – which also features Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker – will return in March with their debut album ‘The Record’. They recently shared three singles from the album in ‘$20’, ‘Emily I’m Sorry’ and ‘True Blue’, while Kristen Stewart is set to direct three upcoming music videos for the band.
