Newly minted best buds Elton John and Phoebe Bridgers met up virtually to hang out ahead of this weekend's Grammys, where the latter stands to win multiple awards — accolades that the elder musician maintains Bridgers most definitely deserves.

In conversation for the latest episode of John's Rocket Hour [via Rolling Stone], the pair discussed the success of Bridgers' 2020 album Punisher, which is apparently one of John's new favourites.

"Your album is like an old friend," he said. "It's like a Tapestry. I have records in my life that are reference points and I think Punisher's one of those reference points. I can't pay you a bigger compliment than that."

He continued: "Good luck with the Grammys. If you don't win at least one, I'm going to hit someone, okay?"

There's no saying who's going to get hit if Bridgers doesn't win, but here's hoping if John commits to violence that he aims his rage at the Recording Academy — and not Bridgers' poor co-nominees.

The full episode of Rocket Hour featuring John and Bridgers' conversation will air on Apple Music tomorrow (March 13) at 12 p.m. ET, while the Grammy Award ceremony will air on Sunday (March 14) at 8 p.m. ET.
