Congratulations to the singer/songwriter Hayley Williams of Paramore, the first-ever winner of the Billboard Trailblazer Award on December 12 in New York City!
“I can remember a time when I would’ve been made fun of for doing things differently. Now I’m getting an award for it? This is too much. I’m so excited!” said Williams. “There are women in this industry who totally bulldozed walls down for the likes of me to come along and do what I believe in. I want to be that for even one girl in the future. I can’t wait for the event next month and to high-five some of my sisters in music.”
She will be honored in addition to Taylor Swift, Woman of the Year; Ariana Grande, Rising Star; and Idina Menzel, Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
