5 Questions With Hayley Williams

November 20, 2008 at 10:58AM by Kaitlyn Smith |

Hayley Williams of Paramore

I've spent the last few months of my life obsessing over Twilight, and engrossing myself in everything with the books and the movie. On top of that, I've been listening nonstop to the breakout band, Paramore. So, imagine my excitement after hearing "Decode," the band's new single featured on the Twilight soundtrack — I fell in love. To make things even more exciting, I got to interview Paramore's lead singer, Hayley Williams. Read on to hear the details and why Hayley has a soft spot for all things Twilight.

WHAT DREW YOU TO THE TWILIGHT BOOKS?

"It had been a while since I had gotten into any book, let alone a whole series. But, a friend of mine gave me a copy of Twilight so I read it and just fell in love with it. I love vampires and that whole fantasy world — it has always been something that I have been into. On top of that, it's a great love story."

WHEN WRITING THE LYRICS FOR "DECODE" WHAT PARTS OF BELLA AND EDWARD'S STORY WERE YOU TRYING TO CAPTURE?

"Just the tension — I think the tension in the book is really what kept me stuck to it nonstop. While I was reading, I wanted to find out what was going to happen with them and I was so into their story. I think it is very real for people my age. When we were writing "Decode" it definitely wasn't hard to crawl into the minds of the characters and say what I felt they would have said."

TEAM EDWARD OR TEAM JACOB?

"I'm not really team anyone. I'm definitely very neutral; I'm all about both of them, I think that there are parts of the story that you are really rooting for one guy and then like two chapters later you will be completely on the opposing side."

WHICH TWILIGHT CHARACTER WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY?

"It’s hard to say, but I really love Alice. I think she is spunky and cool and I like her obsession with fashion."

TELL US ABOUT "THE FINAL RIOT!"

"We started filming it right before we went out for “The Final RIOT!” tour. Our friend Brandon Chesbro came out and basically stuck a camera in our face 24/7 for three and a half weeks. It was awesome. He caught some pretty frustrating moments along with some pretty wildly exciting and happy ones. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Not only does it have a great live show — easily the best show of the whole tour – but it also has a video called "40 Days of RIOT!" which is behind-the-scenes and shows everything that goes when we aren't onstage."
