Paramore's Hayley Williams reveals lyrics about ex-bandmate
Paramore singer Hayley Williams has revealed lyrics on the band's last album were about her failed relationship with ex-bandmate Josh Farro.
Josh and brother Zac recently quit the band last month, saying the band was all-about-Hayley.
Now Hayley has explained how her and Josh dated for several years many snippets of lyrics on the 2009 album Brand New Eyes were about the breakdown of this relationship.
Hayley told MTV: "I would say that a large majority of those songs have to do with the relationship we had and then that we had to mend.
"It was really hard, because we were friends, and then going through a break-up and going through any kind of tension as a band really affected all the lyrics. There are a lot of specifics that I pulled from my experience with just feeling like my face was underneath a boot all the time."
She added: "I think the point of the album was never to point out those things, but hopefully to encourage people who feel that way. Because I felt so alone in that fight, that I would never want, especially another young woman, to feel that way, because I know there are a lot of girls I've talked to, fans, go through the same thing in relationships and families, and it just sucks to feel kind of victimised."
