ORIGIN Magazine’s Maranda Pleasant interviewed Hayley. She talks about things that make her come alive and feel vulnerable, how she handles emotional pain and other things. You can read the whole interview below.
MP: What makes you come alive?
Human connection. There are moments in our show that hit me hard when I catch eyes with someone who is singing along with us and I know that they get it. They feel what I feel. That connection may be brief, but it’s everything. There are other moments too, like at home, with my sisters or with my boyfriend… they all happen unexpectedly. You can’t plan to reach another person on a deep level, it just happens. So those are the moments that I think I really live for.
MP: What makes you feel vulnerable?
Being nice. Sometimes, being happy or being nice can leave me feeling a bit hung out to dry. Especially if everyone else who I’m around is way more guarded. Doesn’t it seem like being nice is underrated right now though? Seems like a lot of my generation as a whole is more concerned with being the cool kid; sarcastic, smug or just all together impenetrable. So anyway, it’s not always comfortable to be like, the dorky, happy girl at the party… but that’s me.
MP: If you could say something to everyone on the planet, what would it be?
MP: How do you handle emotional pain?
Usually, I write songs. Lyrics, to be specific, help me a ton. When I can take all those feelings and just try really hard to make sense of them, it shifts my focus. Suddenly, I can see the pain spelled out right in front of me instead of wrestling with something that’s invisible inside of me. And when none of that works, I cry.
MP: How do you keep your center in the middle of chaos? Do you have a daily routine?
On the road, our schedule doesn’t leave much time for us to just relax or be alone. The best times for me, personally, are at the end of the night… when all of us are on the bus watching a movie, eating dinner or just talking. It settles me to know that at the end of every day I can just sit around with my friends and laugh or even vent. That’s the most normal thing I can possibly think of in the midst of a lifestyle that is pretty abnormal. We keep each other centered.
MP: What’s been one of you biggest lessons so far in your life?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, “It’s okay.” It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to get mad. It’s okay to be flawed. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to move on.
Kerrang! Magazine interviewed Hayley earlier and the interview can be found in the newest issue. She talked about ‘Ain’t It Fun’ music video, Parahoy! Cruise and how she’s preparing for it and also about 2014 UK Tour.
You can read the whole interview below, we have also added photos from the magazine into our gallery.
WHAT ARE PARAMORE’S PLANS FOR 2014?
Hayley Williams (Vocals): “We’re gonna be busy! We just shot a video for Ain’t It Fun in our hometown, so that will be happening! And we’re hitting the road again, starting with trips to Australia and New Zealand!”
AND THEN THERE’S THE LITTLE MATTER OF…
“Of course, we’ll be setting sail for the Parahoy! Cruise! Tegan and Sara are joining us… and lots of other friends’ bands, too. I’ve heard we’re not too far from being fully booked! People are coming to spend their honeymoon with us, graduation trips, spring break…and some people are just coming because they’re in desperate need of a vacation. It’s going to be one big massive party. The rest of our 2014 is still being sorted out, but it’s already looking like it’s already going to be a lot of fun.”
HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SEA-BOUND ADVENTURE?
“Ballet Beautiful. It’s my workout programme of choice. I don’t like crazy weightlifting or running on a treadmill. Plus, this one if really easy to do while travelling, ‘cause I can access all the videos on their website. I’ve gotta tone up, because the damage we’re all going to do at all those buffets and restaurants with all that free food is going to be tragic. I need to at least start at a good place!”
YOU’RE HEADING INTO 2014 ON THE BACK OF A HUGE YEAR. WHAT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE PAST 12 MONTHS?
“Coming back to London to play two nights at Wembley Arena [in September, 2013] was an incredible feeling. It was so good to play the new songs for so many people. That’s the feeling we were dreaming of while we recorded those songs in the studio, and it all happened.”
WHAT’S BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE THING SURROUNDING THE RELEASE OF PARAMORE SO FAR?
“Honestly, I’d say how much better friends we’ve become. It’s a little ridiculous to think how long we’ve been friends and how long we’ve played music together, yet only now we really understand how deep our friendship goes. I’m just thankful we didn’t give up. We would’ve missed out on so much.”
WHAT THINGS WOULD YOU HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY, GIVEN THE CHANCE?
“Did you ever see any of the Back To The Future films? When you start meddling with the past, it completely changes the course of your future. But, honestly, the three of us realise that everything we went through needed to happen. It made us stronger. All you can do in life is learn from the mistakes, the good and bad.. and keep on moving forward.”
SO, CAN WE EXPECT A UK VISIT FROM PARAMORE IN 2014?
“You know there will be! We’re not sure yet how it’s going to play out exactly, but we can never stay away from you lot for very long!”
