In this Thursday's issue writer Dan Gibson provided an excellent analysis of why Paramore's singer is forever tethered to her rather boring band.

"The Paramore Paradox: Why Hayley Williams Can't Leave the Band That Made Her Famous" is here.

The piece caught Ms. Williams eye, it seems. She's since blogged it and apparently addressed it on stage last night at her concert in Houston

Since Williams didn't link us, we'll just steal her words, too:

This, my friends, is what's wrong with the music business. It's not that I don't shoot whipped cream out of my bra. It's the fact that anyone had to do it in the first place. So thank you, dear journalist, for writing this article. Now, everyone knows that what is important to us are the songs we write and people we write them for.

Tweets about Dan's piece read something like this: "@KendraAisa: Fuck this!! hey Dan Gibson you don't know what you are talkin about!! The Paramore Paradox:http://bit.ly/cEsNew"

Stay tuned.

at least she has had the common decency to post herself topless on the internet unlike SOME people. when in doubt, always err to the side of nudity.

"A boring band?" Paramore is one of todays only talented non-studious bands. No, they aren't controversial BECAUSE its extremely annoying. Lada Gaga is amazing and talented but her persona is pulled from past artists like Cher and Maddona. Paramore is a band all its own. Hayley has crazy amazing hairstyles that are original and make her stick out, Josh and Taylor have great guitar skills, Zac Farro is awesome and as Hayley said on MTV Unplugged he is 'inspiring', and Jeremy is a bassist that bands of the same and similar genre would kill for. They are amazing live and are great to their fans. Hayley's lyrics are relatible and personal which is what fans want. They aren't "boring" they're just not a cookie cutter band like most of us are used to, and most people can't except things that are different. Just because they aren't getting in trouble and acting like idiots don't make them 'uninteresting'. It's called being normal and they are just like everyone else. Paramore has underaged fans and are role models. Every one slips up, they aren't perfect but they act as such.

While Paramore isn't the most interesting band it's more than a little misogynistic to say it's because she's not being a ho. I understand that the guy who wrote the article was saying she wouldn't have shock value, which would lead to poor record sales. It was just phrased pretty badly in the "analysis". It's a shame that it's more about controversy than talent.

Okay, guys, this is stupid.This is all people making judgements on a band based on the fact that they aren't outrageous, isn't it?I'm sorry, but when did tumbling out of bars > talent in the music industry? If that was the case, I could give you a list here and now of people who should be in swanky LA pads long ago.If Hayley was being a slut, you would slam her. She's not being a slut, and you're STILL slamming her. I'm sorry, but this is my definition of pathetic, not Paramore and their lack of scandal.Paramore and their music have faced scandal, but in a different way that is only really scandalous to a certain type of person. What I can crazy, you'd call tame. And that's essentially why this is not journalism. It's an opinion, and everyone has a slightly different one. It's tragic that this shit is what you come up with. A real journalist would talk about something important, about what's real, not gossip about what they think about it. I would say become a critic, but critics aren't supposed to question a person's social life either.I'm actually disgusted that this attitude is being supported. You should be ashamed of promoting this crap. In a nutshell, you're saying that being scandelous is the only way to get your talent noticed. You can't honestly tell me that's a healthy thing for a 15yr old to read?

First of all Paramore is not boring at all they write great music, do awesome shows and who cares what they like to film in their own spare time I mean its for their fans and the fun of it they can do whatever they like I don't have a problem with it.

"Her Boring Band"? How can I even begin to list what is wrong with that title? Well, I will: to start, it's not 'her' band. She doesn't own the four other guys who make up Paramore. All five of them are a team: Paramore is a band, as they keep having to reiterate. Secondly, Paramore is not boring. They simply don't have scandal. There's a difference.

Or they're boring because their music is uninteresting.
