Hayley Williams Recalls The Backlash She Received After Taylor Swift Show

Fashion is a form of self-expression that means different things to different people. Paramore’s Hayley Williams is known for her bold fashion choices and unique style. She is an example of someone who has claimed her freedom in terms of clothing and has faced criticism for it.

In a recent interview with Insider, the Paramore singer opened up about the hate she received after wearing a unique accessory during a Taylor Swift show. Williams, known for her original fashion style ideas, revealed that she had just been shopping in New York’s East Village when she stumbled upon the spiked fanny pack.

According to Hayley, she had grown tired of carrying a purse while touring and decided to purchase the fanny pack as a more practical alternative. However, that night, she had a sudden urge to take the accessory to the next level and bring it on stage. Williams thought to herself, “Make it fashion, b*tch. Bring it onstage.”

Despite her efforts to make the fanny pack a fashion statement, the singer received a significant amount of hate and criticism for her accessory choice. In her own words, “I got hated to the degree that does not even make sense over a fanny pack.” The hate was so much that she couldn’t believe the reaction.

But the backlash didn’t last long, as the next year, fanny packs became a popular trend, and everyone was seen wearing one. Williams felt validated when she saw other people wearing the same accessory she had worn on stage. She continued, “I don’t think it was because of me — I think I was just early. But I felt so vindicated when people were into it. I was like, ‘See b*tch.’”

This experience highlights the importance of taking risks in fashion and not being afraid to stand out from the crowd. The Paramore singer’s bold fashion choices have played a big role in her rise to fame, and her willingness to take risks sets her apart. Her experience with the fanny pack serves as a reminder that fashion is about self-expression and not about conforming to societal norms.
