Hayley Williams Is Pissed At SPIN

| Filed under: When Celebrities BlogParamore

After reading the Paramore cover story in the July issue of SPIN magazine, frontwoman Hayley Williams took to her blog to vent about how the band is portrayed in the article and set the record straight.

She writes:

"The SPIN article … that was just printed about us doesn't really seem to say anything about us as a band.

It seems that in most cases writers simply enjoy looking at us and exclaiming - like they've discovered something huge - 'THEY'RE YOUNG!' or of course there's always, 'THEY'RE CHRISTIANS,' or 'THEY DON'T SHOOT UP IN THE BACK OF THE BUS!' What is this, the '80s? Is it really that sensational that we aren't the second coming of Motley Crue?

"I'm sure it's hard to get a handle on any band within the amount of time given to capture 'our story'. maybe reading articles about us just gets a little monotonous, that's all.

I'm not actually friends with McLovin or Miley [Cyrus].

It's my opinion that anyone who is coming onto our band looking for controversy is completely missing the point. the point isn't in the intent of controversy, the point is that there is no way around it. as people, aren't we all bursting at the seams with conflict and controversy? the point of our music is that there are human hearts in it.

We could stop looking for the wrongs and realize that they're inevitable on the way to something more meaningful. I'm not totally preaching here. talking to myself as well, in case you wondered. who knows? maybe I really am just bored with giving music journalists the benefit of the doubt. like they're really gonna let people know what we would want to tell them. yet still, I want to have faith in people. and anyways, what WOULD we want to tell people if we had that much space to write about ourselves? it would probably end up just the same."

Writer Josh Eells wrote the following about the band:

They stay up late to "watch Spaceballs and play Yahtzee."

They sing Hanson songs, and not even 'MMMBop' — we're talking deep cuts. Their bus smells like popcorn and Twizzlers, and their chief entertainment is a book of hypothetical questions they take turns shouting out answers to."

It sounds a little simplistic, but at least Hayley didn't pull an M.I.A.!

    She's just kind of rambling on. Not really saying much, especially in that last paragraph.



  2. 2

    Did they interview THE BAND? If so, shouldn't they ALL be on the cover? This is so reminiscent of Amy Lee & Evanescence and Gwen Stefani & No Doubt. The media focuses on the female lead singer all the time so she gets most of the attention and photo shoots, and no one gives a fuck about the guys who play the instruments.

    i just wanted to say..

    why is it that people that hate perez and talk shit about him are always the first ones to comment. and are on practically every single thing that i end up reading?

    if you hate his website, then just don't read it!



  4. 4

    It's OK!!! Ur fans know you guys and we don't need any shitty journalist telling us what to think about you.



  5. 5

    No one cares what you think anyway, your band sucks donkey ass. Seriously contributing to the downfall of pop music. STFU and go away already.



  6. 6

    Avril wannabe.

    i just wanted to say……
    why do people come here to bitch about the people that hate perez? cheer-leading for a hypocritical self-loather shows horrible taste………..

    She's a sellout anyway promoting that occult symbols and mind control in her new video. Look into monarch butterfly and mk ultra. Anyway she is a satan worshipper so I naturally would love to see the day she perishes.

    Re: LiLi_Princess – IF YOU HATE THE COMMENTS THEN DON'T READ THEM! MORON! WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO TELL PEREZ WHAT A WORTHLESS ASSHOLE HE IS, IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T READ THEM. JUST LIKE YOU ARE TELLING US TO DO!

    Re: ms.revelation – well, considering you haven't called anyone out and the only thing you told me is that you like a child pornographer, I'd say you're failing……*applause*

    Re: LiLi_Princess

    Why shouldn't we make fun of Perez? All he does is try to troll anyways. You know he loves it, bc otherwise the site would just be shut down. It's kinda like Dan Cook said, everyone has a friend named Karen and to their face its like HEY KAR. And behind her back they are all like omg Karen is a douche. Only we are nice enough to be like omg Perez you are a douche where he can read it *if he actually maintained this site himself.

    I think her retort just cemented what (I think) the author was trying to convey - they're just a bunch dumb kids. I know someone who interviewed Hayley in the past, I guess she was sweet but stupid. Definitely could have said worse about her.



  19. 19

    Gotta Respect someone who is Upfront, Represents themselves, and doesn't create fake situations to get their name in the paper. Talent: that's what Paramore is about.



  20. 20

    so because she listens to a CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED band who currently has a top 40 album, she deserves to be made fun of and called simple? that seems off to me.

    Re: sharonabona – i have to agree..most of her statement she was just rambling on…

    dont get me wrong…i like paramore…they are actually a pretty good band, and im sure they arent all kittens and lolli-pops…but whats wrong with popcorn and twizzlers? whats wrong with goofy movies and books…? that doesnt take away from them as a band…if they were so concerned with stuff being printed about them that might take away from a semi-hardcore image then they shouldnt have agreed for the interview and especially not on their bus…its like celebs that go to Robertson to shop and the ivy to eat and then complain about photogs…STUPID! ppl really need to just GET OVER THEMSELVES….

    Seeing this sexy bitch tonight in belfast



  23. 23

    i had no idea they were jesus freaks. wow. how disappointing.



  24. 24

    i HATE paramore. The only purpose Haley Williams could ever serve in Rock and Roll is for somewhere for Courtney Love to put her cigarettes out on and for Joan Jett to fuck.



  25. 25

    no



  26. 26

    Josh Eells is a pretty cool dude - don't be hating on him!



  27. 27

    Omg this chick needs to shut the f*** up. No one probably read that article anyway b/c PARAMORE SUCKS ASS!!! Seriously, I can't stand that band.
