So last night, Luke wore a Misfits t-shirt to the Billboard Music Awards. No big deal, right? Apparently not to Bill Werde and Hayley Williams.
This guy, Bill, called out Luke on his shirt and CALLED 5SOS A BOY-BAND IN THE PROCESS. Like, how the fuck would he know what music Luke listens to? I get it, it’s just another critic that has something stupid to say.
That would be alright with me, but then Hayley Williams, a musician that the 5SOS boys really look up to, joined in on calling out Luke. This really disappoints me because the boys look up to her so much, and because Ashton has a huge crush on her. THEY PUT HER AS A CHARACTER IN THEIR FUCKING “Don’t Stop” MUSIC VIDEO. As I recall, a certain someone (Hayley) was wearing a Misfits t-shirt on stage when she was the same age as, if not younger than, Luke.
Honestly, just because Luke is young does not give anyone the right to say that he doesn’t listen to a certain band or artist. He could be the biggest Misfits fan in the universe, for all we know.
What bothers me the most is that Hayley Williams thinks it’s okay to discourage these kids. She’s one of the best role models for a lot of female musicians, and musicians in general, but she’s discouraging a 17-year-old kid from listening to the music he likes.
So to Bill Werde and Hayley Williams,
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Paramore and former bassist Jeremy Davis are locked in a legal dispute over whether Davis was an employee for the Nashville pop-rock band or a partner in the underlying business entitled to a share of royalties and touring revenue.
Varoom Whoa, the business entity that operates Paramore, preemptively sued Davis in Nashville Chancery Court in February. According to the lawsuit, Varoom Whoa is fully owned by frontwoman Hayley Williams.
Davis left the band in December 2015 in a seemingly amicable separation announced on the band’s Facebook page.
But Davis asserts that he was a partner in the company and entitled to a split of royalties, touring revenue and other income earned by the band. Davis wanted to examine financial documents, which he was not provided. Williams and Varoom Whoa say he was a paid employee, not a partner.
Williams is the one signed to a record contract with Atlantic Records, and she pays her band members as employees.
“Nevertheless, because she wanted to foster a feeling of camaraderie within the band, at her direction, the band members’ salaries included a portion of Williams’ earnings,” the initial lawsuit says.
Davis filed a counterclaim on Friday naming Varoom Whoa, along with Williams and fellow band member Taylor York. The band’s business managers were also named as defendants.
Davis claims Paramore was founded as a partnership between him and Williams. Prior to 2008, York was an employee, until he joined as a partner in the group.
Davis says that he was responsible for decision making, including hiring advisers, musicians, stage crew and equipment managers, plus creating and managing staging and lighting and an array of other duties.
“Thereafter, and at all times relevant hereto, Davis, Williams and York shared equally in all net profits generated by the partnership, from any and all sources, including but not limited to the Atlantic agreement,” Davis claims in his countersuit.
Davis previously left the band in 2004, but rejoined a year later. In December of last year, the band posted a message on its Facebook page about Davis’ departure.
Davis isn’t the first Paramore member to leave amid acrimony. In 2010, guitarist Josh Farro and drummer Zac Farro left the band amid some drama.
“We’re hopeful for Paramore’s future and we’re also excited for what Jeremy’s going to do next. Thank you all for your support and your belief in us,” Paramore said in December. “It’s kept us going.”
Varoom Whoa is seeking for a judge to declare Davis an employee who is ineligible to enjoy the benefits of a business partnership, while Davis is seeking for the company to be recognized as a partnership that entitles him to unspecified damages.
So now y'all know why Jeremy wasn’t at the wedding. Drama. Thoughts?
