I’m talking about Hayley Williams, the 21-year-old songwriter and lead vocalist of band Paramore.
When I first saw her, I thought she was just a much prettier version of blah-i-really-can’t-get-why-she-wins-grammys Taylor Swift (whom i kinda dislike with a strange vehemence. Like seriously, all her songs sound the same, the lyrics are the same, the hair is always the same, she is just…blah.)
Love the shocking hair, the gamine prettiness, and the sweet allure of youth
But waifish looks aside, this girl can sing. Her voice spans octaves, and is in contrast to her looks, powerful, deep-throated, sophisticated, sexy and almost..raw.
B.O.B’s Airplanes. Just about 2 weeks ago, this song was on repeat mode on my playlist (i’ve since gotten sick of it haha) but it’s a beautiful song and hayley just adds to it=). Apologies for this vid- there are copyrights for the official version and this, well, has lyrics! Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? ~
And if you still doubt her talents or vocal abilities, check out her rendition of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance
She’s so good she can just do an impromptu song item on the streets with some lucky random chap. And so cute while at it!
Ok, i know i sound infatuated, but i really, really like her voice! This trumps all the Swifts and Biebers (whom I also have a strange distaste for lol).
Here she is, talking in that voice I am so mesmerised with, about her pair of Grammy 2011 nominations for Best Pop Collaboration and Best Pop Performance
