Things are turning ugly in the Paramore/Farro brothers story. In an MTV interview, frontwoman Hayley Williams defended the band against accusations of being manufactured and the band basically being a vehicle for Williams.

"But we're not a manufactured band. We've dealt with that rumor for a long time, and that's because of the rumors of FBR and Atlantic's relationship. [...] We didn't know it would turn into this. Thank God it did, because we got to experience so many cool things, but we got very lucky that Fueled By Ramen and Atlantic were already working with other bands together, before we ever signed. So, our first record was not on Atlantic, it was on Fueled by Ramen, and then when we started to pick up interest, Atlantic began once again to be interested in us."

"When I was 14, I was offered a contract, but my heart wasn't to be a solo artist, my heart was to be in a band. Since I can remember, being a kid, I've always just wanted to be in a band. I didn't even want to be the singer, I wanted to be the drummer so I could be behind everything, you know? And that's what I fought for, and that's what we've made it, and that's why it seemed so irrelevant that everything was being pointed out and stated."
