In a beautifully written message posted1 on her personal Twitter account, Against The Current’s Chrissy Costanza thanked Paramore’s Hayley Williams for everything she’d done for her. Read her message in full below…
… HOLD UP! Let’s read the relating tweet first: “Thank you for everything @yelyahwilliams, we’ve never met, but you changed everything for me. #SheInspiresMe…”
… Now onto Chrissy’s message!
“I had no idea how to be a frontwoman. How to command a room. I didn’t know how to allow myself to be empowered. I wasn’t cool, I wasn’t powerful, I wasn’t a leader.
Hayley changed that. She showed me that it’s ok for girls to get mad. It’s ok for girls to be powerful, to lead, to command, to conquer.
It’s ok to break down that door and stomp on the implicit ‘no girls allowed’ sign. It’s ok to stand for something.
It’s okay to stand for being yourself when everyone wants to tell you how you should be, how a girl should be.
The years changed, the hair colors changed, the music changed, but the empowering spirit never changed.
She inspired me 7 years ago the day I first listened to Riot! And she has inspired me every day since.”
*Wow! We absolutely loved reading this!*
