Paramore’s Hayley Williams unveils first episode of beauty and music web series ‘Kiss Off’

Williams has admitted she doesn't know what's next for her band

Paramore‘s Hayley Williams has released the first episode of her new beauty and music web series Kiss Off.

The show, which can be streamed via, sees the singer and her stylist, Brian O’Connor, recreate a look taken from the 1982 cult movie Ladies and Gentleman, The Fabulous Stains, which stars Diane Lane, Laura Dern and Marin Kanter as a teen punk rock band.

Earlier this month, Williams mentioned the show in a blog posted to the Paramore website. “The show is NOT a show about ‘how to get pretty’ or ‘this is how you should look!’,” she asserted. “It’s really about encouraging people, especially young people, that perfection is not what makes beauty. Getting to know yourself through your inspirations, painting your personality across your face, and enjoying the process of self-expression… that’s what is beautiful.”


In the same post, Williams cast doubt on the immediate future of the Paramore, stating that she has “no idea what is next” for the group.

“At one point, I thought I could never do better than [debut album ‘All We Know Is Falling’]… and then the guys and I went on to write three other ones that made me more and more proud with each one,” the 26-year-old wrote. “That’s the feeling that keeps me hopeful and inspired.

“Even though it’s a little bit sad to have to leave some parts of your life behind you, it’s crucial. There’s more to do. You’re needed in the future, where a newer, stronger version of you is waiting. Ugh, I have no idea what is next for Paramore but I can’t wait to find out.”
