Hayley contributes to Can You Deal? zine

Hayley Williams enjoys talking about music and music industry from a female perspective. This time she wrote an essay for a project „Can You Deal?” introduced by Jennifer Clavin from Bleached.

„Thx so much @HelloBleached for inviting me to be a part of #CanYouDeal alongside so many incredible women i admire,” wrote Hayley on Twitter.

„When the band started touring I was embarrassed that every review we got back was only focusing on me. Why couldn’t people just forget I was a girl?,” asks Hayley in the essay.

The zine is a collection of shared experiences from other female artists commenting on being labeled as „girl band”, on how do they feel knowing their music is defined based on their sex.

„Labeling me as a woman in a band just puts me in a box, and doesn’t allow everything else I am to be seen and heard,” wrote Jennifer.

Net proceeds from the zine will go to Planned Parenthood. They are only 1000 copies available, each for $12. You can buy the zine here. A part of Hayley’s essay is available here while the entire one below.

New video interview with Hayley Williams

Hayley Williams sat down with Bryan Elliott from Behind The Brand to discuss her life. That’s most likely the most autobiographical interview Hayley’s ever done. She’s also talking about starting her new business, love and break ups, and above all – about music and Paramore.

Click HERE to see photos taken on 11th of March, right after the interview and scroll down to watch the video which contains some really awesome and very touching moments. You gonna love it!

edit: A very first version of the interview uploaded by Bryan and fastly removed, was a way more autobiographical and happened to be the most open interivew Hayley’s ever done. The final, re-uploaded version, is mostly about goodDYEyoung as a brand.

We know that the first version is available online under illegal sources, however, it’s good to remember there was a reason why Warner Music kept removing the video from all sources possible. As we don’t know the reason, and as the final version is so different, we won’t spread what’s removed. Hopefully Bryan gonna re-upload the rest soon.

edit 2: Bryan made a comment on the missing parts of the interview:

New message from Hayley about writing new album

Paramore is about to release a new studio album. Taylor York is back on Twitter, every day posting new photos of his magical equipement and Hayley is back on Instagram. Today Williams left a new message on Paramore’s official account about writing and demoing new studio album.

about a year ago, we began writing & demoing songs for #5
following up our self-titled album didn’t seem like it was going to be an easy task and, unsurprisingly, it was not. the problem about comparing yourself to… yourself… is that even though it’s better than looking elsewhere, you’re still looking in the wrong direction. for me, it wasn’t until i trusted that the past is finished with me that i could go looking for what’s next. our pasts can be a great comforter, or a horror movie; a noose, or a shield… but it is „past” for a reason. after a rest, we have to go looking for what’s supposed to come after that. – h

Hayley Williams signs a letter to Barack Obama!

British singer Kate Nash shared a open letter to Barack Obama about the Dakota Pipeline and Hayley Williams is among over 130 musicians who signed it!

„I want to write a letter for musicians to sign, expressing how disturbed they are by the police actions taking place at Standing Rock,” said Nash. A full letter, and the names of all the engaged musicians, can be found here. #GoHayley

This issue revolves around a pipeline being built by Energy Transfer Partners which is due to transport oil from North Dakota to Illinois daily. It intends to travel underneath the Missouri River which is the main water source for the Sioux tribe. Beyond the risks of their water supply becoming contaminated, the tribe also argues that the pipe interferes with sacred grounds which belong to them as Native Americans according to agreements known as the Fort Laramie treaties. The Sioux claim that the federal government didn’t do enough to involve them while seeking a permit for the pipeline, a matter which would defy federal law. via
