Aged 14, Williams moved to Franklin along with her family. A few weeks later, she took up singing lessons with Brett Manning. Because of rather (justified) bad mood in state school she took a dislake to it, mother signed her up for so-called „weekend classes”. During one of such classes, she met Zac Farro. Brothers Farro have actually became her first friends. She completed her education aged 20, by receiving the Leaving Certificate. She admits, she always was a loner-type, presumably because of her shyness.

Privately, she is good friends with Brandi Cyrus and dates Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory. As a child she was fond of listening to jazz. Her first favorite band was ‘N Sync. She considers speaking of Avril Lavigne and Ashlee Simpson as pointless, because journalists will compare her to them in any case. She is a big fan of „Twilight” Saga. Her friend gave her the first book, saying, that she should read it as it’s simply cool lecture. Friends tend to call her Spongebob or Sponge because of her teeth. She has two younger sisters – McKayla and Erica. The latter accompanies Paramore on their tours a lot and follows the example of Hayley.

In July 2008, Williams got her septum pierced and in July 2009 ears. In October 2008, being under boyfriend’s influence, she got her first tattoo, which reflects shaver with a wreath. Currently Hayley has a three tattoos. Two on the right calf and the third behind an ear. At the end of May 2010, her half-naked photo was published on her profile on the social-networking site. According to her, someone broke to her computer, bypassed password and made photo public.

On 15th June 2010, video clip of „Airplanes” debuted, which was a collaboration of Hayley Williams and rap singer B.o.B. That song is available in two versions – the first is the performance of Williams and B.o.B, and in the second one duo unites with Eminem. Track turned out to be a great hit in US and so on.

We may consider as a curiosity the fact that Hayley’s mother – Cristi Williams – is the founder of foundation „Shading the Limelight”, while Hayley’s father – Andrew Williams – is the owner of „Hi-Fi” store chain in Nashville, which sell, among other things, stereo equipment. Another fun fact is, that Hayley signed an agreement with AMAX Agency in 2001.

On 20th of February 2016 she married Chad Gilbert from New Found Glory. The couple has been dating since 2008. They tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the Franklin Theater in Franklin, TN. Click HERE to read more about the ceremony.

At the age of 14 Zac Farro was a founding member of Paramore. He was an active member of the band until 21st of December 2010 when his older brother, Josh Farro, at that moment the lead guitarist in Paramore, announced that he is leaving the band. Zac left Paramore following his brother’s departure.

After leaving Paramore, Zac started his own band, HalfNoise. The band released two studio albums and one EP by the end of 2016. He was touring the United States, the United Kingdom as well as Australia and New Zealand.

In June 2016 Paramore posted a photo with Zac Farro who has later on was confirmed as the dummer on their upcoming fifth studio album. In the interviews Zac was recalling his past in Paramore but was never openly admitting that he wants to re-join the band.

On the 2nd of February 2017, when the album was supposed to be already finished, Paramore posted online a short sentence – „I’m back” – and a t-shirt with a photo of a baby Zac. Later the same day people working close to Paramore confirmed that Farro is once again an official member of Paramore.
