It has been quite a long time since we checked in with Paramore singer Hayley Williams, one of the most beloved stars of the MTV News Twitterverse. Her recent activity has been pretty heavy, as she has had a bit of down time. Paramore have been gearing up for a European tour (which kicks off this Saturday, November 6 in Dublin, Ireland and will include a stop at the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards, which are this Sunday, November 7 in Madrid, Spain) and taking care of a video for “Playing God,” the new single from their still-rolling 2009 album Brand New Eyes. All the while, she has managed to keep her followers entertained and informed with tweets about parties, food and boyfriend Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory.
Like 999,999 other people this week, Williams picked up a copy of Taylor Swift’s Speak Now(though unlike most of those people, Williams probably has Swift’s cell phone number). “Just picked up #SpeakNow and we’re rockin’ it in the car,” Williams tweeted last Monday, the day that Speak Now hit the streets. “So stoked for @taylorswift13!” That was a big music day for Williams, who went to go see States that night. “If you live in Nashville you should be going to see @statesmusic tonight!” she tweeted. “And if you’re not, then we’re kicking you out of Nashville.” She was later blown away by singer Mindy White’s vocal chops. “Holy Mariah. @statesmusic is killing it at their 1st show ever and @mindywhite’s vocals are ridiculously insane!” she wrote.
It wasn’t all music and shows though, as Williams spent some time enjoying the domestic life, eating dinner with her mom, catching up on the new season of “Dexter” and hanging out with her sisters. She also took in a hockey game with her boyfriend. “Went to the Preds game tonight!” she tweeted. “They lost but me @JasminLayne and @XChadballX got on the Jumbotron so that made up for it!”
But when Halloween rolled around, she really kicked into gear. Not only was her costume incredible (she went as Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” with Gilbert dressing up as Jack Skellington), but she also put a call out to anybody dressing up as her (and created the briefly trending hash tag #hayleyween).
The latest update? The band wrapped up work on the video for “Playing God” and are getting ready to conquer Europe yet again. And even if you can’t get out to Liverpool to catch them in concert, you can always follow along with Hayley Williams: Twitter Champion.
