Hayley is a Katy fan

Hayley Williams

Rocker Hayley Williams is passionate about pop music

The Paramore front-woman has confessed to being a huge fan of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

But don’t expect the band to be changing their heavy sound any time soon.

“[Lady Gaga’s] Applause I think is such a bad a*s song, I think it’s so cool. And Katy Perry is such a bad a*s person, I don’t know her super well but just from the times I have met her she is so rad. So I love that.

“I love pop music, I’m not afraid to say it. I’m in Paramore and we came out of a scene of music that absolutely is not the pop world, but I am a huge fan of pop music,” she admitted to America’s OK magazine.

Being in a successful band has meant admiration and recognition from fans for the members of Paramore.

But 24-year-old Hayley isn’t quite used to being seen as an idol, and says she finds the experience of fans approaching her both “weird and cool.”

“It’s so cool, but I just don’t see myself that way. But I remember being young and having books that had like Gwen Stefani, and how she did her hair and makeup and TLC and Aaliyah, and even Missy Elliot.

“I really looked up to a lot of women in music who were doing things that were a little different. I love our young fans. I love to see the way they express themselves in fashion and through the kind of music that they listen to,” she enthused.
