Hayley Williams: 'I Don't Need to Swear to Be Cool'
Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams has stated in a recent interview with NPR that she doesn't need to write about sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll to be cool. And, as NME notes, you won't find her swearing in a Paramore song any time soon either: "I don't really feel like I need to say anything about sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. I don't need to swear. And I'm not saying that I'm a perfect angel, but I think it would feel very disingenuous - like, 'This is me trying to be cool. Maybe we'll grab a couple older fans if I just put this swear word in'. I want to talk about normal life problems." The singer also commented on how, in spite of the Paramore's recent troubles, she had decided not to dissolve the band because she thought about how others would feel in her position: "There were definitely days that I was like, 'Am I doing the right thing?'", she said. "But then you kind of look over at your friends and realise there's probably a million kids that are sitting at school, wishing they were doing what you're doing." Paramore's latest, self-titled album is released today (April 8th).
