Hayley Williams says Paramore is ‘back in the studio’ after fighting lung infection

  • by

Hayley Williams shared a health update after Paramore were forced to cancel shows due to her lung infection. Said Williams: “I don’t cough all day and night anymore” and “I’m just happy to to be resting more,” but also added that her “stomach is still f***** from 10 kinds of medication.”

Willians also revealed that Paramore have been back in the studio, sharing: “Zac and Taylor and I also just want to get back to making things. We’ve been craving that for a while now. Not only the creative process but the layer(s) of insulation that can come with the creative process. For me, when we get into this mode it always feels nice to disappear in a way.”

Williams also shared she’s been watching lots of TV and has spent a “disgusting” amount of time on social media while recovering:“I watched all of Yellowjackets, 3 or 4 music docs, They Cloned Tyrone, A Good Person (never cried so much or stared blankly across my living room for longer after a movie was over)… but mostly I just scrolled around on my phone… to a degree that has been, to put it nicely, DISGUSTING … After successfully divorcing myself from social media for quite a long time — I have become, once again, chronically online. Anyone else know this pain? For me, it always starts out sweet. I love to see photos or random anecdotes from people who’ve come out to our shows… I love the stupid inside jokes and even the sticky parasocial connection. And when I am not para-lurking, I am watching dog videos or watching people I don’t know organize their s**t. But I also see lots of news, especially from back home. It’s literally always sad or rage-inducing. Never positive. Depressing. Now that the bulk of our touring for the year is over, I’m hoping to dive head first into creating some better routines.”
