Phoebe Bridgers shows off figure for Porter magazine cover story

Phoebe Bridgers has spoken about the ‘goods’ of TikTok and how the app has helped in the battle against mental health. 

The songstress, 26, whose second album Punisher earned her four Grammy Award nominations, commanded attention when she posed in a number of edgy looks for the cover story of the latest issue of  Porter magazine.

Alongside the incredible shoot, she said: ‘There’s way more good about TikTok than bad. Within the context of the world that we are in, TikTok is great…. But, for the most part, I think it’s a good thing that therapy and mental health is destigmatized.’.

In the shoot, Phoebe showed off her lithe figure in a racy black Christopher Esber swimsuit for one photo, as she admitted to at times finding social media ‘terrifying’.

The star, who is reportedly dating Normal People star Paul Mescal, explained to Porter how she is cautious not to overshare on social media.

She said: ‘I am terrified of myself reading my tweets from now, in five years’ time. I don’t want to be embarrassed and like, “Ugh you were 26 and tweeting about UTIs – what were you doing?”‘ 

The modern folk artist when on to reveal her unique way in allowing her control in a chaotic world – pulling a tarot card each day.

‘I really like clarity readings. You don’t need to ask a question. You pull one card then you pull three under it to clarify the meaning of it for you,’ she said. 

She also discussed self-care, saying: ‘Taking a second for your life is important and was discouraged by the generation before us. Like taking a moment and making your apartment smell nice, or whatever. It’s not a means to an end, it is the end.

‘To me, I feel like the biggest piece of self-care advice is clean your house like your crush is coming over. Pick the trash you’ve been ignoring up off the table.’

In one edgy photo for Porter, Phoebe reveals her trim figure in the Christoper Esber swimsuit as she stands in a river with knee-high boots on.

Her shoulder-length blonde locks appear to be semi-wet and she gazes directly at the camera, not giving away any emotion. 

For another photo, Phoebe perches her frame on a chair, surrounded by hay, going braless in a black lace Saint Laurent camisole and the brand’s black ribbed shorts.

She accessories with black Saint Laurent narrow-frame sunglasses and appears to wear minimal makeup.

The rumoured new couple are thought to have spent the bank holiday over a romantic weekend in London, after Phoebe jetted over to the UK to be with him.

An onlooker who spotted them together, told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: ‘Paul and Phoebe were out in Shoreditch and looked so sweet.

‘They were chatting, laughing and quite tactile. They seemed to really savour their time together.’ 

MailOnline reached out to their representatives for comment at the time.

Back in August last year, a source claimed Paul was ‘smitten’ with Phoebe.

The insider shared: ‘Paul invited pals and they played wild drinking games. They’re both smitten. His membership on the celeb dating site Raya is a smokescreen to cover up that they’re secretly an item.’ 

Indie rock star Phoebe told NME magazine in May that she thought Paul was a ‘cute boy’ after becoming a fan of his after watching Normal People.

She went on to follow him on Instagram, with the Irish hunk quickly returning the favour.

‘I got a little pitter-patter in my heart when I saw’, she explained.] 

The ‘couple’ soon met, when the actor joined Phoebe for a vodcast for her Instagram Live. 

During their Instagram Live, Paul also admitted: ‘I think it’s well documented that I love your music.’

Phoebe then replied: ‘Well, that makes me blush.’ 

Paul and the singer then stayed on Zoom together after the Live was over, where they drank together for several hours.
