“All the girls standing on the line for the bathroom” have a mean case of the sniffles. N¤E¤R¤D sing about what goes on behind (some) closed lavatory doors on their new single “Everyone Nose.” With sneezes aplenty underneath their rhymes, Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley broach the subject of socially snorting cocaine. Yes, when the girls go in the bathroom, they’re powdering their faces with that other white stuff, N¤E¤R¤D say. The song has been stirring up controversy thanks to a rumored fight on the set of its video shoot last Wednesday.
“We love the reaction that we get [from that song],” Skateboard P told us recently. “They know what we’re talking about.” “Me, personally, I’m shocked it’s being embraced the way it is,” Shay added. “I feel like it sticks out like a sore thumb in comparison to what you hear every day on the radio. We’re definitely happy. It’s just our personal observation of what we’ve seen over the past couple of years, so we felt like making a party record out of it.”
