    What would you do if you lived next door to a Grammy nominee? If you're living next to Phoebe Bridgers, it turns out you'd tell them to "shut the fuck up" - at least, that's been her experience.

    She's been nominated for four Grammys at this year's Awards, including Best New Artist, Best Rock Song and Best Alternative Album, but that doesn't mean that absolutely everyone is on board with her music.

    Speaking to Beabadoobee for Consequence Of SoundPhoebe told the story of what happens when she's singing to herself. “Actually, something funny happens here where I share such a small space that my neighbours have yelled for me to shut the fuck up through my window."

    "They don’t like when I sing to myself. So, I’ll write songs that are way, way, way higher than I can actually sing because I’m whispering. Then I’ll go to record them, and I’ll be like, ‘I can’t fucking sing this!’”

    However, one of her neighbours is a fan, so maybe they'll be a bit nicer in the future. "One of my neighbours, who I didn’t even know, he had my number – or I guess we had texted back and forth, like, ‘There’s a leak’ or whatever – but he was like, ‘Congrats on the Grammys!’ And I was like, ‘Oh, you know who I am!’”

    Honestly, if we were living next to Phoebe, we'd love the opportunity to hear her sing, no matter what time of day. Guess there's no accounting for taste.
