Hayley Williams proud to inspire next generation of young women

Singer Hayley Williams, of Paramore fame, has revealed that the best thing about being a female frontwoman is that she's in a position to inspire the next generation

Chatting to Rock Sound recently, the 'Still Into You' hitmaker explained that when she was starting out she only really had male role models, so it's great to think that she might be able to influence young women who want to pursue careers in music:

"What is even more amazing is that there’s now going to be another generation of young women who are looking up to people like Lynn and Jenna."

"When I was starting out in a band I had to take parts of my inspiration from males, because there weren’t enough women to really go around. I had to look at male musicians that I admired or looked up to and go, ‘I think I can do this just as well as they can,’ but I had to find my own way of relating to them."

"That so many young women will now have more immediate relationships available, and that there’s so much more to be inspired by can only be a positive thing."
