While I’m still on my computer, happy 6th to @paramore‘s Self-Titled album. Technically, it’s not til April 9th but it leaked and may we never forget it,” she wrote. “In celebration: Here’s T and I in a limo, Paramore’s preferred method of transit in 2013.”

She added that she wishes she could use the hilarious photo for promo for the Self-Titled album six years later.

Who knows why Paramore was so into limos in 2013, but we can’t hate on it at all. 

In other news, Williams just recently revealed she’s a Billie Eilish fan, which led the 17-year-old singer to totally flip out.

Also, she just did an emotional interview addressing the future of Paramore. With rumors whizzing around that Paramore could potentially see an end, Williams is quick to shut down any formality regarding a legitimate break up.

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean we are getting any new music from Paramore soon. Williams said any future material with the band will be natural and nothing like the early years.

“When we were kids it was like, we’d never even seen or heard of some of the opportunities before,” Williams says. “Half of it was curiosity and half of it was just wide-eyed ‘let’s see what this experience feels like.’ Obviously we wanted the band to succeed. But I don’t even know if we really grasped the concept of succeeding.

“It was more like we just went through the motions every day, and if the shows are really magical, then that’s why you do it, you know? Now—especially after this album cycle, too—I would never do things the way we did before After Laughter. With After Laughter, we kind of said no to everything.”

Additionally, Williams goes on to say that the band is like a family. In that, Williams says she feels as though she will never have to make a formal “break up” or hiatus post.

“We’re all friends and we all make music in different parts, together. So I feel like, yes, I want to be in Paramore,” Williams says. “I never want to have to put out a press release that says we’re over or that I quit or that we’re taking a hiatus, which is essentially a marketing ploy these days. I would rather it just be. It just is a part of each of our DNA. If we choose to move into it as a brand and put a name on these songs and make a new t-shirt, then awesome. But I’ve been in a band with them since I was 12; I don’t think the band is going anywhere. As long as we’re friends, the band just is. It’s just in us.”
