As many may know, I DO NOT like Paramore. I don’t think they suck…worse, I think they’re mediocre at best. They were catapulted to fame post-Avril “Sk8r Boi” and stayed in the hearts and minds of over-emotional teenage girls thanks to an appearance on the “Twilight” soundtracks.
HOWEVER, I WILL admit that I LOVE, love, love Hayley Williams (the lead singer). I think she has an amazing voice (when she chooses to showcase it) and could be incredibly talented (if she dropped her entourage of garage band superstars).
Proof? Her vocals in Paramore’s Kings of Leon cover. *note, she had bronchitis during this. Can you tell?*
More proof? Her spur of the moment Twitter video of “Bad Romance.”
Please drop the band. Not forever…just long enough to pump out a few acoustic solo albums and make a name for yourself OUTSIDE of the “Twilight” universe. There are Grammys waiting for you, not to mention a whole bunch of adoring fans.
Love & Vitamin Water,
P.S. Cover Gaga’s “Speechless” and don’t dye your hair blonde ever again.
