Hayley Williams, the sort of cute, but flat-chested frontwoman of Paramore has been in the news lately. Two of the band's founding members, drummer Zac Farro, and guitarist Josh Farro left the band this week, under less than pleasant circumstances. Williams immediately jumped to Paramore's website to address the situation, saying that the two members "didn't want to be here," while the Farro brothers paint a different picture here. So what is the story behind the split?
Well, by many accounts alleged by the Farro brothers, Williams portrays her fellow bandmates as "hired guns," who are unable to make it on their own. Her parents(who also were her managers) told the now former band members, that Paramore was Hayley's solo project. Now, there are two sides to every argument, so why have I chosen to side with the disgraced bandmates? Well, there is much evidence to support their claims.
When Paramore started to achieve mainstream success with their sophomore album, "Riot," Williams achieved much of the publicity, and her bandmates were treated as her subordinates. As the bands popularity continued to rise, the ego of Williams continued to grow as well. She even crossed over to pop, with her contribution to that "airplanes" song. She is obviously trying to make a crossover into shitty, generic pop, a la Gwen Stefani.
I admit, I am a Paramore fan, they have been a bit of a guilty pleasure in between my metal and hardcore records. Williams has a decent voice, and unlike most "pop" stars, she actually writes most of her own lyrics. She's cute in that obtainable way, I see her, and I think I could actually bang her, unlike most pop stars. However, if you listen to the bands new record, and follow the band, the demise was foreshadowed.
Williams comes off as the bitch in this situation. She puts up a cliche-riddled "sorry to see them go," message, while her bandmates portray her in a different light. The challenge for the flat-chested singer will be to write hit songs with Josh Farro, who helped write much of their music. Then once what's left of Paramore is gone, she can make terrible songs like Katy Perry about kissing girls, and licking ass. The only difference is I would give my left nut to spin Katy Perry's ass on my shaft, while I'd just buy Hayley dinner at Outback Steakhouse. Average looking girls rarely make it in pop. Sorry Hayley.
Don't worry Hayley, when we look back at your Behind the Music story, we can talk about how your massive ego led to the demise of a successful band, and that time you won the "Douchebag of the Week!" P.S. get a tit job!
