AVAILABLE ON NEWSSTANDS 3/26

On being a girl in the rock’n’roll world:
“Being onstage–that sort of empowerment that you get is not male or female. It’s just raw energy. I don’t feel like I have to be sexy and a girl, or sexy in any way. I like to play hard, and I love to prove people wrong. It never bothers me being in a male-dominated world. In the past, when guys heckled me, I would just heckle them back.”

On the band’s falling out:
“It went from being like, ‘Hey, we don’t want to be in the band anymore’ to this really hairy online situation, where I was like, ‘How did this happen? Why is this happening?’ I know I’m a smiley person, but when I get hurt or when I get upset, I can definitely turn crazy. And I felt crazy for a while, like, ‘When is this going to go away?’ But it did, finally, and I’m more thankful for the good that’s come out of it than I am upset about the bad that went down.”

Paramore’s fourth studio album, Paramore, will be available April 9th.
