Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards ceremony focused, appropriately enough, on celebrating the cinematic arts, but that doesn’t mean that music wasn’t properly represented. Among the show’s attendees was rock band Paramore, who were still stoked about releasing their self-titled third album.
Lead vocalist Hayley Williams demurred when asked about the possibility of the band earning its first #1 album on the Billboard chart, but told MTV News that she and fellow bandmates Jeremy Davis and Taylor York were ecstatic about the release’s success thus far.
“We’re a little afraid of jinxing it,” Williams said about the chance of hitting the top spot. “But at the end of the day, no matter what happens, we kind of feel like this week’s already been insane for us. The album came true. It’s been like a dream, but I don’t know — we’re ready to get back out there!”
What about Paramore has listeners feeling connected? Williams admitted she wasn’t sure but confessed that their third full-length was a particularly personal effort. “It’s like a little luck, a little bit of everything,” she mused. “But we know, we keep saying no matter what, we’re just so proud of this album. We didn’t even expect this much already.

“I mean, it’s only been a week,” Williams continued. “And it’s our heart and our soul, so we’re just really proud.”
