Hayley Williams leaves social media | Entertainment
Hayley Williams left her personal social media accounts to create more “boundaries between public and private life”.
The Paramore frontman has decided to move away from Instagram and Twitter to be more present in the real world, after considering whether or not to stay on the internet for the past year.
In a statement on her social media, she explained: “I have thought carefully about this decision for almost a year now. Now I know for sure that my desire to get away from personal accounts (yes, even my finsta) is based on nothing more than my interest in keeping a line between public and private life … and wanting to spend more. of time looking up and out, rather than down.
“I have been on the Internet and more particularly on social networks since I was 15 years old. Maybe even younger. It started with blogging sites… then MySpace. Then Paramore became a thing and social media wasn’t even just for my personal use anymore, it was part of the job. It has been a useful and above all beautiful part of the job. I thirst for connection and the Internet is a great tool for that when it doesn’t keep us apart.
“No judgment for anyone who loves their social media. Just a huge encouragement to anyone who needs permission to create more boundaries and room to grow – sometimes ‘no’ is the nicest thing you can say … to anyone! … even to yourself. “
Earlier this year, the 32-year-old star said she was “ready for Paramore’s next album.”
After two solo recordings, Hayley admitted that she had no plans to record another solo project and was ready to enter the studio with her band mates Paramore.
Responding to a fan who asked her on Twitter if there were any songs left from her sessions for ‘Flowers For Vases / Descansos’ that she would use either for another solo LP or Paramore, she replied: “There are more than songs, yes. but I’m not planning another solo album. and I don’t know if they would be perfect for Paramore. I’m ready for Paramore’s next album. Let’s go. (sic) “
The “Misery Business” singer had previously promised fans that she would not give up Paramore – who took a hiatus in 2018 – for “greener grass.”
She said: “I can’t deny that there are frontwomen in the story who went solo and didn’t go back, so this is where I have to trust the band know that I don’t look for greener grass.
“I see guys like Julian Casablancas and Thom Yorke putting out a bunch of records and going back to their band all the time. They do their own shit and nobody thinks that cannibalizes The Strokes or Radiohead.
“I’m just trying to get some of that other weed and bring it back to our side, so I can be like, ‘Try that shit, it’s not that bad.’
The emo-pop group’s last studio album was “After Laughter” in 2017.
