Phoebe Bridgers’ Busted ‘SNL’ Guitar Sells For Over $100,000 at GLAAD Auction

“Phoebe Bridgers’ unforgettable SNL guitar smash has now gone from a much-buzzed-about performance and morphed into an important moment of giving back to the LGBTQ community,” Anthony Ramos, GLAAD’s head of talent tells Billboard in an email statement. “Phoebe is such a visible, out powerhouse in the music industry and we knew that the item was special, but we were so pleasantly surprised to see such a large amount of money raised that will go directly into our work to support and uplift LGBTQ people. Thank you, Phoebe!”

The indie rock star went viral for smashing her Danelectro Dano ’56 guitar on SNL, especially when David Crosby chimed in, calling her stunt on the show “pathetic” and “stupid.” Bridgers responded in kind by retweeting the 79-year-old rockers name and labeling him a “little b—h.”

Bridgers was nominated at this year’s GLAAD Media Awards for outstanding breakthrough music artist, which ultimately went to rapper Chika for her debut EP Industry Games. “I made it here by the Northern winds, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to sit here and sing these songs and not give anyone credit, especially the people who gave birth to me and my management,” she said in her cheeky acceptance speech. “So thank you guys, from Chika and Chika only, not Warner, and not the band behind me. Just me.”
