While she has been pretty active in promoting her hair dye company, she promises: “i’m not planning on abandoning music for hair, in case anyone’s starting to wonder.”
Hayley plans to take an “extended break” from social media as “there’s..a lot…going on. it’s exciting and it’s also a lot…i sense in my body and my mind that it’s time again.” This will be her first social media break since the summer of 2015.
Even though she’s been taking a break, Hayley has been working on herself, and her mental health. She urges fans to “please take care of yourselves and try to believe that you are worth more than just “okay”…or “been better”…or “can’t complain…”. i think we are all worth experiencing joy. we are worth feeling hope.”
“joy is deeper than a smile. to me, anyway. that’s what i’m striving for. yeah, sure, it’s a life long journey and all that but well…here goes.”

The singer did just complete her weekend curating a Sanctuary Of Self-Love for Bonnaroo attendees, giving the opportunity to get ready for the festival with hair styling from GDY. They also offered mini spa treatments, glitter stations, panels on mental health and self-love and more.

Williams has previously appeared on HalfNoise’s song “As U Wave” in 2017, though we doubt there was any alcohol involved in that like this happening. You can check out that track in the player below.
The singer also recently opened up about what the future holdsfor her and her bandmates.
With rumors going around that Paramore could potentially break up, Williams is quick to shut down any rumours, though we may not get new music any time soon.
“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.”
