This better not awaken anything in me

As it is written in the gay agenda, so it shall be done: Kristen Stewart is apparently set to direct three music videos for boygenius (a.k.a. the only supergroup that matters).

The world was shaken to its very core last week when Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus announced their debut collaborative album the record, previewed by three new singles. Because everything happens in threes, they proceeded to be revealed as Rolling Stone's latest cover stars — complete with a photoshoot recreating Nirvana's 1994 cover of the magazine.

Now, the publication has shared another article consisting of outtakes that didn't make the trio's cover story, which casually revealed in the opening paragraph that Stewart is directing three music videos for them. Of course, Baker, Bridgers and Dacus were already some of the most interesting people in indie rock, but the plot thickens evermore!

No further details have been provided, but Bridgers is a noted KStew stan, having previously released "Kyoto" — the hit single from 2020's Punisher — on the actor's birthday, which she referred to as a "sacred day."
Despite boygenius's inevitable Stewart fandom, she may not make the cut for being in the band. The supergroup also revealed who their hypothetical fourth member would be — a question they say they're constantly asked in interviews, à la Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. (They all identify as Young, by the way).

"Our go-to answer has been [Big Thief's] Adrianne Lenker," Dacus told Angie Martoccio. "Partially because she's a water sign and we're earth, air and fire, and partially because she's good."

Bridgers added, "Mitski or Adrianne. Those two writers keep me up at night about what is good and right in the world and art." 

And one can't deny Stewart's contributions to the cause, having recently starred in Crimes of the Future and Spencer. The actor, who is also working on the "most gayest" ghost-hunting show, made her directorial debut with short film Come Swim in 2017, scored by St. Vincent.

If all three of these music videos don't replicate the vibe of the baseball scene from Twilight, we riot.
