sorry teacher i didn’t do my homework because i was too busy crying over parahoy
The quality sucks but omg
you’re not what you look like. you’re the music you listen to, the shows you watch, the art you make, the flowers in your hair, your favourite blanket. you’re not the pimple on your nose or the pudge on your stomach. You’re not your thighs or your teeth. you’re the colour of your hair, you’re your favourite band, you’re the mismatch socks you wear and your favourite sweater. You’re what you love, you’re not what you look like or the body you are in.
Hayley talks to Radio.com about Fall Out Boy, why she (probably) won’t ever go solo, writing music, Ain’t It Fun and Parahoy
Hayley Williams is about to earn her sea legs. Starting today (March 7) and running through Tuesday (March 11), she and her band Paramore will set sail from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas for their PARAHOY! cruise.
“The fact that we’re getting to do a cruise is so random to me,” Williams told Radio.com. “I did not take it seriously at first, and now it’s a reality. It’s turning into exactly what we were hoping it would be. People all over the world, all ages, especially people our age. People we grew up playing shows to, for, and with. It’s going to feel very much like family.”
On the four-day trek, Williams and her bandmates (Jeremy Davis and Taylor York) will take part in a fan Q&A, perform on the ship’s deck, and enjoy a few other cruise activities like PARAoke, a viewing of Sixteen Candles and getting tattooed. Unfortunately, as of now, the singing of sea shanties is not on the itinerary.
“We just wanted to create an environment that had a lot of bands we love, a lot of friends,” Williams said of the cruise’s musical lineup, which also includes New Found Glory and Tegan and Sara. “We just wanted to make it something we can all remember. And if it all goes well, maybe we’ll do it all again.”
After the cruise, Paramore will next prepare for a joint summer trek with Fall Out Boy, which kicks off June 19 in Hartford, Conn. Williams assured us it will not be a nostalgia tour, no matter how sentimental she tends to get about the scene. Instead this tour will celebrate how far the two acts have come over the last few years.
“It was important for us to press ourselves forward,” she said, “and I think the same goes for Fall Out Boy.”
Regarding Paramore’s 2013 self-titled album, Williams said it gave them a chance to rediscover their sound. “The whole idea behind our new album was that we’re getting a second chance to start over,” she explained, “to really rediscover what we want to be and what we already are. The real message was, ‘You don’t have to give up, just because the odds are against you.’”
Albums aside, she knows the only reason she’s allowed to keep making music is a testament to Paramore’s truly devoted fans.
“It’s really up to them,” she explained. “We can write music all day long, but could end up playing it for ourselves. It’s cool that people accepted it — not only accepted it, but just championed it, carried the torch for us.”
Would Williams ever consider releasing a solo album? As she explained, it’s been good to “try different things” — such as her collaborations with B.o.B. and Zedd — “but my priority will always be Paramore.”
Of course, she added, “You can never say never in your life in general, but again, I know where my heart is. And it’s this band. I can’t imagine wanting to do anything else.”
Watch the video above to see Williams talk about her band’s latest single, “Ain’t It Fun,” what fans can expect from the next Paramore album and why she’ll (probably) never go solo.
Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
i want to hear my favorite band member moan my name
