and finally. a blog.
the last 4 years are gonna play like a movie in my head for the rest of my life. it was the best time from start to finish. everything that has to do with the self-titled album is my favorite memory. even the stuff that wasn’t so easy to go through. cause now i look back and i see why it all happened in the order that it did. we will never make another album like that one. that’s something i’ll always be proud about, and a little sad about, and that’s just the truth.
but what do i know? the next album might be even better than S/T. i should know better by now than to ever question the process, the plan, or the deep belief that i have in paramore… more so than i even have in myself, alone.
every night on Writing The Future, while we were on stage, there was always a moment of realization that we can never relive anything. not any single thing. it’s cruel. seriously, we are a generation who lives almost exclusively through our photos and videos and captions, trying to freeze moments in time but it’s all only a shade of us and our experience. what’s real is what those moment create within us… and that’s what we carry with us and that’s what shapes the moments to come. or at least how we perceive them, feel them, live them. memories do serve us when we are the most nostalgic and i suppose i’m always the most nostalgic… but even my memories of the last 4 years won’t fill me the way actually living it all did.
and that’s got to be why it’s so important to move forward and never live in the past. we can never be fulfilled by a moment that’s gone. if we’re not living in the now (wayne’s world ref) and struggling, striving to find ourselves and each other here in the present then what even is our point? yeah, i know the whole “be present/be content with where you are” spiel sounds like bullshit but it’s true… and no one needs to hear it more than me. con-stant-ly.
speaking of the present: i’ve been wedding planning, attempting to write and sometimes actually writing, moving into a new place, and building a hair-dye company from the ground up. all at the same time. yes, i am completely insane! you should see my crazy eyes. i think they’re permanent now actually.. i’m going to try my best to share bits and pieces of some of all of it as we go along but no promises cause some days i forget the internet exists (and i think that’s a good thing).
thank you again for Writing The Future. never cried on stage the way i did during “Future” in Portland. the signs you guys made and held up for all the shows were moving and served as a reminder of our purpose and the hope we had for the band in the beginning. thank you guys for creating a community within our “fanbase”. we do what we can to keep it feeling like a family because that’s truly what it feels like to us… but you guys are daily doing all the work to really make it real. nothing felt more right than celebrating S/T with you guys in those gorgeous theaters.
i’ve typed for long enough now. writing lyrics with carpal tunnel sounds great and all but i’d rather not.
Hayley kirjoitti eilen uuden postauksen blogiinsa Tumblrissa. Hän puhuu siitä kuinka on feministi ja myös Paramoren ‘Misery Business’ -kappaleesta. Voit lukea postauksen alta. Hayley myös mainitsi kirjoittavansa Writing The Future -kiertueesta ja Self-Titled albumin aikakaudesta lähiaikoina.
i read a couple comments today about how i can’t be feminist or whether or not i’m a “good” feminist. to speak specifically to one of those comments, i’ll say this: Misery Business is not a set of lyrics that I relate to as a 26 year old woman. i haven’t related to it in a very long time. those words were written when i was 17… admittedly, from a very narrow-minded perspective. it wasn’t really meant to be this big philosophical statement about anything. it was quite literally a page in my diary about a singular moment i experienced as a high schooler.
…and that’s the funny part about growing up in a band with any degree of success. people still have my diary. the past and the present. all the good AND bad and embarrassing of it!
but i’m not ashamed. one thing i’m more thankful for than just about anything is all that my experiences – including my mistakes – have shaped me and made me someone i’m happier to be. in songs and in life. it’s always a little nerve-wracking to bring you guys along for the ride but when i step back and think about it… it’s kind of a huge honor that anyone cares in the first place.
in conclusion. i’m a 26 years old person. and yes, a proud feminist. just maybe not a perfect one?
thanks for reading this.
(ps, i’m coming back for a blog about the Self-Titled era and Writing The Future… soon)
Hayley postasi Tumblriinsa uuden viestin jossa kertoo lisää tulevasta hiusvärimallistostaan, jonka hän haluaisi julkaista myöhemmin tänä vuonna. Voit lukea koko viestin alta.
Hey there internuts
Just wanna make clear that, yesssss, I am in fact in the early stages of creating a hair dye line… However, the rumor that I am teaming up with Manic Panic to do it is not true. Their dyes are rad and the company as a whole is a massive source of inspiration for me. Don’t want Manic Panic folks thinking that I’m using their name to get ahead.. Awkward!
This is gonna be my thing! 100% my vision and I’m pretty psyched about it. Still a long way to go but I’m working hard and cannot wait to really be at a point where I can share more. Anyway, I just wanted to clear all that up. Thanks for the excitement/enthusiasm. Only makes me more excited!
Hayley päivitti Tumblriaan uudella merkinnällä jossa kertoo 5 unohtumatonta hetkeä tai muistoa tältä vuodelta. Voit lukea koko merkinnän alta.
24 was one of my favorite years I’ve lived thus far. It was happy, triumphant, challenging, and hopeful. I’m super thankful for all my many blessings, strengths, and for all the weaknesses in my life which motivate me to grow and better myself. Anyway, thanks to everyone who made 24 what it was to me personally. I wrote some stuff down in my phone about a month ago… And I thought if I was ever going to post it then today would probably be a nice day to do that. Here are 5 moments or memories from this year that I know I will never ever forget… In no particular order, of course.
* Sneaky little NYC trip to surprise Chad- waited for him at Toy Tokyo (one of our fav spots in the city), his face was the greatest when he realized it was me standing there in the middle of the store. We hung NFG flyers around Terminal 5, sang along to H2O together and then I watched him and NFG play. It was a trip that now I realize really made us even closer, without us realizing itin the moment. That night we ordered tons of room service in the weeeeee hours of the morning and just talked about how insane life is, in the best and weirdest ways, until he had to leave go back to his tour bus and I had to hitch a ride to our show in PA.
MSG show – haven’t been that nervous in a long time. My entire family was there to cheer all of us on. I saw Grandat crying and singing along side-stage. We played so well that night. I had a blast on stage and the guy I picked from the crowd to come sing Misery Business with us was the best we’ve ever had… Christian Brown. Dude even did a full on split center-stage! The entire night felt like a huge victory for Paramore and our whole team. There were even some tears.
Wicked The Musical – I scored tickets for the whole family (which on my dad’s side is like 927262 people!) and all of us went to see Wicked together. Laughed, cried, and just watched in awe. You know when the Williams men admit to loving a broadway show, then the stars have really aligned! Loved sharing that with them and I won’t ever forget it.
Self Titled record release day – I remember celebrating alone with a bag of peanut m&m’s as the clock struck midnight and our record went up on iTunes. That morning, we flew from NYC to LA… The busiest schedule ahead of us… And the three of us couldn’t stop smiling cause we knew it was finally real. We read every fan review/comment/message that day like we’d just discovered the Internet for the first time. Indescribable, the feeling, seeing people so excited about the band that we’d become.
Baby Davis! – on the way home from our summer European festival run, we were all worn out.. Tired.. Hungry for US food again.. And ready to be in our own beds. I’ll never forget sitting in the airport lounge in Chicago when Jeremy told all of us that he and Kat were pregnant with a baby girl. I practically screamed at the top of my lungs – everyone in the lounge looked to see if I was ok – and we explained, “our best friend is having a baby girl!” Tears and smiles and cheers. I can’t wait to be an auntie to the sweetest little fairy that’ll ever be.
Hayley päivitti Paramoren Livejournaliin ja Tumblriinsa lyhyen viestin jossa kertoi lisää Ain’t It Fun ja Daydreaming musiikkivideoista. Bändi ei julkaise Ain’t It Funin musiikkivideota vielä, koska he eivät olleet tyytyväisiä videon lopulliseen versioon. Video kuvataan myöhemmin uudelleen.
He tulevat kuitenkin julkaisemaan videon Daydreaming -kappaleelle joka koostuu Lontoon keikoilla ja muuallakin kuvatusta materiaalista. Daydreaming ilmestyy sinkkuna Euroopassa ja Iso-Britanniassa. Aikataulusta ei ole vielä tietoa.

Ain’t it done?
Hey everybody, it’s Hayley. Back again and I wanted to fill you guys in on something that we’ve been getting a lot of questions about…
We posted a picture a few months ago from behind the scenes of a video we shot for our song, “Ain’t It Fun” … Turns out, the process of making and completing this video has been well, not fun. ZING! To keep things short and BS free, we were not happy with where this video was headed and ultimately, made the decision to pull it.
Not to worry, though! We have since shot another video… for a song called “Daydreaming”, which we’re releasing as a single for our friends across the pond. Of course, we are planning on shooting another video for “Ain’t It Fun” as soon as we get a chance. When we figure out all the details for that, we’ll tell you!
So sorry we kept you guys hanging for so long. Thanks for all the excitement and for all the patience, it hasn’t gone unnoticed. No one is more anxious than us to have the right music video for “Ain’t It Fun”. It’s one of our favorite Paramore songs to date and when the time comes, it’s going to have a video worthy of that sentiment.
Love each and every one of you. See you at the show
