Hayley Williams, ‘Girls Were Such Bitches’

hayley-williams-bitches-1


Paramore singer Hayley Williams revealed that she was a victim of bullying in school like many other young stars. She moved from Mississippi to Tennessee at the age of 13 and told Sugar that she had trouble fitting in at her new school: ‘I went to one school for six weeks and I was miserable. Even the teachers didn’t like me. The girls were such bitches. They would invite me to parties and I

wouldn’t go because I didn’t want to be around them, then the next day at school, there would be all these rumors about me, like, ‘Hayley’s a sl*t’, ‘Hayley’s gay’. I went home crying, saying, ‘Mom, I’m such a loser, I’m never going back’. She saw how upset I was and she was like, ‘Okay’.’ What advice she would give her 14-year-old self? ‘No boy is worth your teenage years! My idea of what

it means to be in love has changed a lot since I was a kid. Things I thought were going to be important aren’t actually so important. In the past, I’ve sacrificed who I was, for who I thought I should be, in order to make someone happy.. and it ended up hurting other people as much as it hurt me. For me to be in love with someone means that I have to accept who I am, and not allow another person to define me. And if someone loves me in spite of all that, then that’s a start.’

    I agree, everyone gets bullied and if you are not in any serious danger, it’s really not a big deal. I know it sucks; but that’s life. I also agree that they probably emphazied this part of the interview because of the anti-bullying craze going on right now(which is a fantasic thing!)

  • GetReal

    so I am curious with all of the bullying talk from everyone… do people here get picked on ??? sounds like everyone in the world does.

  • Voice of reason

    @Getreal Everyone has been bullied, if not by someone else then you yourself.

    lol this is like legit the only hollywod bullying story i believe, and im not even a paramore fan. like mileys bs. when people make that kind of stuff up, like when its obviously fake, its extremely offensive to those of us who actually had to suffer from bullying. just saying.

    aww does anyone remember her tweeting this:
    @ddlovato Can not comprehend that you are 16. Your voice is insane. Job well done on the new record! Track #5 is awesome.

  • jackie.r.

    Ugh. Everyone was bullied. We get it. You turned out fine. The end.

    I’m gonna wear a ribbon for bullying during all the awards shows this year. To bring awareness.

    I also agree. Everyone gets picked on at some point in their life. But what has made this problem so serious is how the people handle it, some bullying just hits them so hard & it really brings down their self esteem, while others they can get through it and move on.

  • Enditnow

    Hayley Williams is as average looking as they come with an even average supposed singing voice to boot. Damn…

    Lol, not really.
    Demi isn’t the first one to talk about her bullying. Every star in Hollywood was bullied, really.

    at least she doesn’t dwell on it.

  • Danger-ous

    Good point. She probably actually just said she was picked on when she was little and they turned the story into the charity of the moment.

    This is TRUE .

  • purplekoolaid

    everyone’s bullied big deal. it just seesm now that kids are a lot more insecure and b!tch-like than they used to be, which to me goes to bad parenting. In ye olden times, parents would actually be there for their kids. Nowadays they are at work 80% of the time and when they do see the kids they sit them in front of the tv/video games and don’t pay attention. i notice these things alot because I do work at a daycare and see hows the parents are. its sad really.

  • FrancyJonasGomez

    Am I the only one who has never been bullied? It feels like it.

  • suckit

    girls are terrible.they ARE still bitches.why can’t we be cool like guys.smh

  • liiiiisa

    “Am I the only one who has never been bullied? It feels like it.”

    No, I wasn’t bullied and I feel super lucky.

  • silentlydream

    Honestly, I study in a Private School and it sucks! I do believe that the teachers hate me though because I’m not the everyday-perfect-girl. My hair is not that straight and sometimes I design my uniform and the teachers won’t like it. Every single day the girls would all be perfect and stuff like perfect hair, clean shoes, and perfect everything. I HATE IT!!! I know that girls in my school are very judgmental and show offs. Heck! They even made a rumor about me smoking so I could get expelled but I could’ve done it but I’m not that kind of a trouble maker. Can’t we all she that imperfection is the new perfection!!!
