Hayley Williams has spoken about the bullying she suffered back at school.

The Paramore front-woman toldhow, at the age of 13 years old, she spent just six weeks in school when her family moved from Mississippi to Franklin, Tennessee.

“I went to one school [in Franklin] for six weeks and I was miserable,” she told Sugar.

“Even the teachers didn’t like me. The girls were such bitches. They would invite me to parties and I wouldn’t go because I didn’t want to be around them, then the next day at school, there would be all these rumours about me, like, ‘Hayley’s gay’.”

“I went home crying, saying, ‘Mum, I’m such a loser, I’m never going back’,” she added. “She saw how upset I was and she was like, ‘Okay’.”
