:/ i hope things work out for all of you.
Dunno, I was reading through the comments and then it said the video got deleted for sexual content. I was like "I know Josh is pretty but geeze" haha
That's very childish of them, don't let things get you down!
Cheers Josh... I hope this all works out well for you and zac.
hahah, for "sexual and nudity content"I LOL'd.Everyone's allowed their side of the story, right? D:
it was probably hayley. i mean you blame her for everything else that went wrong in your life, right?
Thanks for giving us the truth, seems there hasn't been a lot of that from Paramore. But I do hope that you guys aren't ending on a terrible note because that would suck. It'd be good if you could continue to use this blog in the future because we'll miss not having you around.Wish you the best for the future :)
I've been crying.It's not all Hayley's fault.♥ for Jeremy. [:I'm creepy.I love you, Josh, still.You saved me. <3 Now I don't threaten to kill people. As much.
LOL at this all happening on my birthday ;)Thanks for everything you have done for me since 2005 Josh and Zac.
I found it funny that someone actually pulled it off for the reason they did. Of all the reasons, they choose that one. Really?
thats just petty, you should be able to say what you want
I really hope this doesn't start world war three.
Stop blaming Hayley assholes. The video was probably removed because of the fans. The real deal is in the previous post, who cares about a stupid video saying "yes, i wrote it" when it's all written here?
LOL.Sexual content? shows how real mature she really is.anyway, it's also youtube's fault for not ACTUALLY looking at your video before deleting it.lmao
Josh I just want to thank you for your opinion on the whole situation. Thank you, for being honest with us fans when we needed it most. I wish you all the best in the future.
I wish you all the Best josh. The Music industry is a tough place and I'm glad you're standing your ground.Though I do believe everything has become so petty :/Pmore fans are now calling you a 'douchebag' and stuff then they aren't even in the bands loop. keep the faith.
Wow they deleted your video because you spoke the TRUTH how petty.
I guess some people can't handle the truth. It must have been hell being forced to keep quiet and lie for 7 years. You and Zac deserve to tell your side of things, and if people don't like what you have to say, they should stay off your blog. And all you anons that are badmouthing josh and zac on here, if you don't like what he has to say, go away. At least have the guts to sign in and comment instead of hiding behind an anonymous account.
OMG soo ridiculous, i just read ur blog and I'm so agree with all of the things u said, i mean i'm so sad 'cause u and ur bro left the ''band'' but now i feel better 'cause u made a good decission, anybody can work with things like that.Love u guys so muchstill a paramore fan but won't be the same without you...i'm supporting u two in everything =) ♥so much love from Chile, south americaxoxoandreaPS: hope u come to my country someday again..i'm so sad 'cause u won't come :(
People will see your side of the story, Josh. Don't worry. Is it true? I wish it wasn't, but I'm sure it is. I hate that my favorite band is basically imploding. You inspired me to play guitar, and I hope you keep making amazing music.
love you Josh <3
thanks for taking the time to clear things up, josh. will be praying for all of you.
Josh maybe when you repost the video, you could give a little thank you to the fans or something? I have been on a lot of Paramore forums etc, and everyone is very upset. If you could say just one uplifting thing, I am sure it would make fans feel a bit better :)
You're acting like a child Josh, please grow up.
i just really hope you guys can remain friends with/on good terms with hayley, taylor & jerm. you guys seemed like such great friends, and even though i know things change and people change, it sucks to think you all hate each other or whatever.
GROW UP, KIDDIES.Hayley's in cahoots with Youtube?Get over yourselves.
Very ridiculous....glad you and zac released a statement...i didnt like the one on paramore.net It didnt seem genuine at all...It actually made me angry they made a statement about how they felt instead of how yall felt...oh well...yall got to justify your reasons of leaving and I support both of you...No pleasure is comparable to the standing upon the vantage-ground of truth.- Francis Bacon
i always had a perception that you were really friendly to your fans but when i was at a meet and greet a couple of weeks ago in ireland you were so cold and arrogant, fair enough acting that way to the band but to act that way to your fans is just unforgiveable. I support hayley over you anyday at least shes decent enough to not bad mouth you.
Sorry Josh, but I have to say this..Will all you childish, immature brats that are commenting on here and letting yourself be displayed as 'anonymous', that are having a go at Josh, calling him names and being idiots just take your own advice and grow up. He's never done anything to hurt us. Have any of you thought about this seriously? They're leaving the band because their hearts aren't in it anymore, they don't want to be in the band anymore and that's final. Would you rather Josh and Zac stay in the band and be unhappy about it? Because if you would, you really aren't a true Paramore fan and you don't deserve to call yourself one. Grow up. Josh and Zac are thinking about themselves and their families for once. All they've ever really been able to do was think about everyone else and what they wanted. If you can't accept that then go away.And one last thing... Josh never badmouthed Hayley in his blog. Grow up! He never once said anything bad about Hayley. He just told it like it is. You're picking it up wrong.
I don't understand why people are taking sides? A week ago you loved this band. Now everyone is just fighting over who's right and wrong. Paramore have always made great music and been inspiring. If they continue to make great music and inspire people, I'll continue to love them.One week is not changing how much I've loved this band since 2007.
I'm becoming very fond of your wit. My mom read your statement (SHE HATES PARAMORE....not because of the music or anything or all this drama just because she wants or wantED a reason not to pay for a ticket to a show) and was blown away. My friends read it to and I have to say its so RIDICULOUS what people are doing. It only makes what you are saying more valid. Stay strong. Fight this, but don't let it consume you. God bless.
Keep strong! You've got tons of supporters!
grow a pair josh
I love you guys but you are seriously victimizing yourself. At 17/18/19, you say you were clueless? You can't blame that on her management. And if you feel victimized from being in the dark, how would it feel to be the puppet of a manager and parents, as you say Hayley is?You sound bitter and immature. A lot of personal details could have been left out of this. You think we deserve the truth, but it's not fair to make other people come off as bitches because of this. You could have said that she was getting too much attention and that it wasn't what you wanted anymore instead of taking us on a trip down memory lane.Sorry this sounds bitter. But I'm just trying to put this into perspective. The fans don't need the nitty gritty of the band's personal life.
lol, people, forget the "sexual and nudity content"...thatis what is showed ALWAYS when a video is removed from youtube...'cause normany is because those motivs...or copy rights...Anyways...Josh don't think too much about that, seriously, not worth the effort...xoxo from Portugal
I'll be waiting for your video on this blog. Soon. :) Lotsa love for you and Zac
Get off your fucking blog and disappear into your life, Josh. The more you post the worse you look!
Josh i always like you and Brazil loves paramore, and will never forget all that you did, but you video and this this writen here, was so sad for everyone, Josh you have to thank the fans that will be together with you, but how you told about hayley makes me cry, maybe she is that but we can't believe, I mean for fans and for me paramore were perfect, You are a great musician, and I thank you all, but i'm really upset with you, Josh you forgot the fans and this is unacceptable.
Im so upset over this, ive lost my faith in paramore and i feel lied to. The band was just a big charade and we the fans are the idiots who believed paramore were something different. I think it was unnecassary for josh to put so much detail into his statement. I hope i can regain the love i had for this band since i first heard all we know is falling.
That is very stupid and childish that they took your video down, Josh. I've been fan of Paramore ever since I was twelve years old and I used to think the world of you guys. But I am very thankful that somebody was mature enough in the band to give us THE TRUTH. You guys have always been my favorite band, but now I see all of it was was a bunch of lies. I'm just glad you and Zac were the ones who stayed real in a band of complete fakes.
Josh,I'm with you.I'm glad you released this.Ignore everyone who's telling you otherwise.You deserve to speak out about this whole thing.I feel bad that you spent a large amount of your teenage years doing something you didn't neccessarily enjoy.I hate being lied to, and I'm glad I got the truth from you.I support you 100% and I would have done the same thing,blog post-wise.I wish you,Jenna, and Zac the best in the future, and remember that people are still supporting you.
i love all of you guys, all 5 of you. i have since i started listening and i have no plans to stop in the future, no matter what happens. i refuse to take sides. i've grown up so much and become such a better person because i listened to your music. people call me hayley's mini-me, not because the band is her band but because i am similar to her (well not the hayley that you were talking about in the blog post, but whoever i've been looking up to for the past couple of years. still not taking sides, no matter what that sounds like). i personally think that paramore is a band, not hayley and backup but i refuse to believe that everything i've known and looked up to is wrong. i hope and prey that you can work this out, weather this means getting together or not. i will always love and support all of you, taylor, hayley, zac, josh and jeremy
JOSH I GOT YOUR BACK<33333DONT LET IT GET YOU DOWN!!!!
Ok, Dear EVERYONE! you guys are all taking this way out of hand! Not Paramore, but the fans. What has happened in Paramore has happened naturally. Zac and Josh have decided they want to leave the band, Hayley Jeremy and Taylor are not the cause of this. From Josh and Zac's blog today it seemed that they (well josh anyway) have hated paramore basically since day one, yet somehow they managed to stay in the band for three major albums? In my opinion Hayley made this band what it is today. I know it's not supposed to be all about her and it's not! But back then she was the one who was getting signed. Josh and Zac should have been happy that she insisted they come with her as a band. I really appreciate Josh and Zac as musicians, but that blog today just made me purely angry. It's as if they set out to destroy Paramore by posting that blog. They knew that a divide would be caused between fans and people would believe that Hayley is some kind of stuck up, unnatural wannabe rock chick diva.What Hayley, Jeremy and Taylor posted last Saturday was a true tribute to Josh and Zac in my opinion. Everything they said was true and they did not put them down in any way. Why couldn't Josh just leave it at that and leave the band with dignity? I don't know. basically he was seeking some serious attention, possibly because he thought there wasn't a big enough deal made about him leaving, hence why he posted the youtube video afterwards.Anyway guys remember, Paramore will still be here, we all have great memories of Josh and Zac in the band, in interviews and in live performances. They're completely awesome. There was once a reason why we all fell in love with Paramore's music and let's just remind ourselves of that. Just please keep the faith. Stand by Hayley, Taylor and Jeremy on whatever decisions they make, they're trying to do their best for us and we know we love them.
i agree with the above
I don't why all you haters are talking crap when all Josh did was give us exactly what we wanted; an explanation. Everyone needs to calm down please. Would you want all these hate comments on your blog when all you did was tell the truth? Doubt it. I got your back Josh :P
i think the person 2 above me really said it wellcheers mate.
I don't doubt that the statment is yours Josh nor that it is the truth. I think you did the right thing if you think it's the right thing for you. I wish you all the best. May God bring you and your family all the best.All my love, Paige. x
This has turned into a soap opera. Dont listen to the negitive comments. I still support you Josh.
yeah i agree the person 3 above me really put it all in perspective
yeah that really long comment above was really good

yeah you really did man, thanks :p
woah you should be a journalist
JOSH YOUR THE BEST!!!!!!IM ON YOUR SIDE 100%<3333333333
JOSH DONT LISTEN TO ALL THE NEGATIVE PEOPLEYOU DO WHAT YOU KNOW IS RITE!!!!!
Hi Josh...ZAC...i'm a fan from brazil...and...you're right! you must follow the way that God is writing for you 2!...nice and intelligent choice!...is a pity that it always happens behind the music industryyou deserve all the possible blessings...hope see you guys soon
Guys- stop saying band. BAND IS OVAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Paramore IS NOT a band. :)http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ldurs4HUMD1qztmxyo1_500.jpghttp://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ldurs4HUMD1qztmxyo1_500.jpghttp://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ldurs4HUMD1qztmxyo1_500.jpghttp://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ldurs4HUMD1qztmxyo1_500.jpgIS THAT REALLY TRUE JOSH?
youtube is quite retarded sometimes. and it was removed cause of "nudity and sexual content". soo stupid!! anyway.. i support you with whatever you and Zac do. i love you guys and always will <3!
6 above me really was well written, they really said what all us fans were thinking
This is what they do to people who have courage. Shoot them down.thank you for standing up for what is right, I was starting to think you all had lose yourself in the world but i'm glad you and zac are still living in the light of god.
Sucks when people with pull can get YouTube to remove videos for illegitimate reasons. Censorship isn't cool.
It's just like you said josh "you shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free."I'm glad you decided to explain what was really going on with the band and clear things up. To think that all this time you and Zac were unhappy and still managed to come out with three awesome albums and play countless amazing live shows is beyond me. To me it shows dedication not only too your fans but to the music. Zac is my favorite drummer and the reason I learned to play drums. Playing all your songs was so much fun and so emotional. I still remember pounding away to That's what you get as i cried my eyes out from a recent break-up.Unlike many people here I think there is no one to fault but the music industry and Hayley's parents for the way they treated you guys. I think Hayley wanted to keep you guys as a band but got sucked into the limelight like most people do. I hope the band can all settle their differences sooner than later and maybe someday all make music together again the way they intended....just 5 kids from Tennessee with a love of music.Until then good luck in all your future endeavors and congratulations on your marriage!
No, I'm not ok. I'm from Brazil and really hoped to see you in February, because YOU WERE ALWAYS MY FAVORITE! I'm a guitarist and one day when my dreams were gone, when I had no expectations, when I was about to give up everything I could find a way out with your musics, especially 'plane crash dreams' and I remember how I wanted to be like , playing as well as you, start a band as paramore. I just hoped to see my biggest idol once(because I can't go to the other concert.), try to get an autograph, a souvenir. But more importantly hear you play. See the way you play. But now I have an empty. But I always will support you in everything, in all your works, and you'll always be my favorite. I hope to see you soon in Brazil, with Paramore or with any other band.I always love you Josh, and I always will support you ok?JUST ANSWER ME PLEASE =(Lorena.
All the best Josh and to your brother Zac :)Thanks for explaining and proving this is actually your blog, I managed to see the video :)Have a great Christmas
id hate to live in south america, they should of continued with the tour of south america. Luckily for europe we got to see all five and i got to personally meet the five of them :p, i wish josh and zac the best in the future and will still continue to support whats left of paramore
Was deleted for "sexual and nudity content"! Man, i know you're so hot but why doing this?I swear i saw that and i couldn't stop laughing :')People are so ridiculous.Anyways, i'm so proud of you sweetie! Please, stay strong and keep your head up<3God bless you!I freakin love youuuuuuu.
Hayley DID IT! hahahaha I`m sure!!!!
you guys are stupid. ofc hayley didn't remove it. if hayley or management removed it, it would have their tag on it. the fact it was removed because of 'sexual and nudity' or whatever shows it was the fans. that's the only was a non-official person can report a video.
xoxo gossip girl
That was odd how it was removed. :\ I got to see it a few mintues before they removed it though.
your a fucking idiot.youre a grown man and you are having a whiny bitch over things when you were 16 and hayley was 14? i guess this means i can have a bitch about someone stealing my polly pocket when i was 6 right? you fucking douche bag i cant wait to watch your career wither and die.
I'm sorry but I've gone from upset, shocked, annoyed, pissed at your fans to down right entertained. When is this going to be over? I'm still laughing so hard I mean I saw the video there was no bad content. There wan't even any content you wern't doing anything but sitting. But Anywya back to the problem. It's the "OH I'll NEVER LET THISS GOOO" attitude. no, that ain't gonna fly. y'all need to let this go. Yeah I'm might sound stupid but I'm a paramore fan ready to move on.
Hey Josh,I feel you 100 percent. I am in the music business on the other side and I have seen this happen to so many bands who I know personally, well known etc. I believe this happened. I can give you an example of a huge band who dumped a band member who originated, wrote all the music, blood sweat and tears, etc. because management said he didn't fit in. They ditched him two days before a cover of AP. It was horrible, and I went thru it with him for years(all crazy details) where the fans were not even acknowledging him as the originator oft he band that he wrote all the music too. Just dropped in the sewer. Of course he made over a million in royalties, but never got the glitz of touring, the fame of everything, the tour weekly pay etc. I am telling you this, because I HAVE SEEN THIS HAPPEN, and I can say that this always seems to happen when money, egos, etc. come into the band. AND IT IS NOT fair that the singer can always seem to make headlines and stay regardless of what happens, yet other original band members are "replaceable." Next band Josh: Get a good lawyer. A REALLY GOOD ONE(I can give you some insight if you want it.) Before you write new music gain control in writing of your stuff, have clauses in the agreements saying you cannot be kicked out that it's your band and your consent. Do it all legally. You should not have to suffer the recourse of this like this. People will say it was your decision, when really it sounds like you guys were made to not leave. Kind of like a job that doesn't want to fire you, but makes your life a living "heck" to get you to quit. Hang in there, I tell you from advice and experience, there is no easy way thru this. You will have regrets here and there or shouldn't I say "regrets" but you will have sadness watching things progress without you. I say close your ears after this soon. Don't watch things, it will only upset you. Just write music and live in your music bubble writing, get on tour again, and have a blast. Don't dwell on what they are doing in media and the like. It will only make you sad. Good luck you guys. :)
josh, dont show your naked face on youtube, some people find it offensive!!:)
josh if you are reading this, is it really true that hayley pretty muched you guys...is she really who she claims to be?
JOSH I LOVE YOU! haha hayleys so shady! i think you moving on will be for the best!!!!i hope you start a new band =)
I BET HAYLEYS MANAGEMENT REMOVED YOUR VIDEODONT WORK JOSH...KARMA WILL CATCH UP TO THEM EVENTUALLYYOU ARE A GREAT CHRISTIAN MAN
hayley removed your videoshes one bitter chick
maybe it should stay down. unless you want to continue acting like a child.
someone re uploaded it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kpgG6hTekE
HE'S not acting like a child, the WHOL RECORD LABEL is acting like a child. |:[
hey Josh, he who is without sin cast the first stone.
WTF there are 2 sides to this story, yours and hayleys...which might i add had been posted months ago!! seriously josh u guys all looked happy in the recent photos of u guys as a band, what happened? i mean can't u get past this for ur fans? I LOVE HAYLEY, JEREMY AND TAYLOR for keepin paramore alive for the fans
I like the tumblr post. so funneh.
Josh and Zac, for me, you guys are/were Paramore. Zac, you hit the drums HARD. Josh, you are very musical with your playing. It sucks that this all had to end up in a "parawar". Just keep your heads up and do what you feel you should do with your lives. I suppose you don't really need me to tell you that, but still.
Maybe try posting on vimeo ? Try that, though i;ve never posted a video on it. I think its free. im sure you heard of the site
im makin a shirt that says team farro on the back and fuck a hater on the front!!! ahahah kiss it bitches
I've lost so much respect for Hayley.God bless you Josh, may you find happiness.I hope you continue to make music, I will always be listening.
hahah, for "sexual and nudity content"?That is so ridiculous! Truth made you free, that matters.God bless your family and make you prosper in everything."He has made everything beautiful in its time "
i really don't like the fact that i won't see you in february in Chile :/ but now that i know the way you both feel staying in the band i respect you desition and i support you, i just want you to be happy, but please don't leave us, continue making music :C A big hug from CHILE, i love you and i'll continue supporting paramore. Talastai :)
Would have been nice if you'd said a little thank you to the fans Josh for getting you where you are. Even if it didn't end right, I don't believe you would have stayed this long if you really didn't want to be there.
uhhhhh dumb asses, did you read the leaving post, it thanked fans on there!
first of all, please continue your blog despite the haters bc i love to hear from you! also, like i "told" jenna, i love and support you all and wish all of you good luck. but just one more thing, if you are ABSOLUTELY leaving paramore, can you consider a solo career? i heard your demos from way back when including so much more and plane crash dreams and you are just AMAZING. and that's not even counting your wonderful screaming, background vocals, and guitar playing! I could never dislike any of you, I've grown to love you all too much! stay in touch, and jenna and zac too for that matter! may god be with you all.
You did the right thing!!! God has a better way for both of you...i knew this was gonna happen
to be honest i didn't like the videos of brand new eye's songs....the video's perspective is all about hayley....
Wow, this is incredibly...this is just tooo much. I know all of people use to get mad at you and Zac because it always seemed like you never wanted to be in Paramore anymore. But now I see we never knew the whole story. And I'm glad we all know the truth, and speaking for myself, I hope you and Zac get to live your life now and be happy. For real this time! Lol. And hopefully you can get some form of communication so we won't lose you guys forever! We still love you guys!!
the tit picture was trying to get herself famous, hayley is a selfish bitch...
Josh.I don't really know what to say.It's just that i'm from the Philippines(the country you missed the tour in last march),I've been listening to paramore since 2004 and I was totally expecting to see you after a few years again.I completely understand how things are with you , Zac and paramore..Could I be honest? I watch paramore because of the Farro's I listen mostly to songs where i hear your voice and if this is the truth.I shall keep it, I shall live with it.and ALL Paramore fans(who love Josh and Zac as much as I do)should be happy. Happy Farros make happy Fans.i'm just saying that you did the right thing..GODBLESS to YOU..This truth is the essence of my Christmas this year.Happy Christmas Josh and Zac.
It has been re-posted @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoDWndy5fOMI don't hate Josh & Zac for leaving the band. They have got their own personal reasons for doing so and if we claim to have liked and supported the Farros, then you would support their current decision. Of course as Paramore fans we would be disappointed but please respect their decision. There are certain things in life that we cannot comprehend, but hey, that is life.Do not think for a second that this was easy for both Zac and Josh. They started Paramore and were there from the very beginning. To Josh & Zac, all the best in your future endeavors and I hope that God will continue to shine his light on you. May you make full use of the talents that you have been blessed with. Merry Christmas!
im so glad that you are sticking up for yourself Josh, keep fighting for what you believe in :)
FUCK THE FARROS. Go air out your dirty laundry elsewhere, you brats.
Oh no! Someone deleted a youtube video!!!! Call the police!!! Wow, I bet it was Hayley's evil plan to destroy your video, huh? Just like everything else that went wrong in your life. Perhaps you can quote another bible scripture to set things staight!
watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVw2bZdu0IE&feature=player_embedded
I don't think thats what he meant dumbass... Hayley didn't go flag his video 500 times, its most likely WMG (Warner Music Group) which owns Atlantic Records). They don't want the truth to get out because it could potentially tarnish the bands/Hayley's image.
They didn't want to set themselves free
Anywayssss why is everyone so butthurt over this? I will continue to enjoy Paramore's music but also look forward to seeing what the Farro bros have to offer. For now I'll sit back and wait for the band's response. Juicy stuff yo! lol
Josh is too hot for YouTube, so they had to take the video down for sexual content. Duh.
it's sad that hayley's fangirls are still like "you don't need them" um excuse you, yes she fucking does. JOSH is the main musical force behind this band, he writes the music. sure, hayley writes the lyrics but they're simple, josh is talented enough to write lyrics too. when you listen to paramore, the main things that stick are josh's lead riffs and zac's monster drumming. they are the real talented ones in my opinion, and hayley has only given paramore the mainstream exposure that ruined them. maybe if she wasn't so focused on her friendships with rappers and sexually pleasing her boyfriend and focused a little more on her band none of this bullshit would have happened.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoDWndy5fOMIt's reposted.Thanks Josh for speaking out. That took a lotta courage and it was probably painful too. Just so you know, I've always admire you and Zac heaps and please don't stop making music coz you produce awesome guitar riffs and Zac with the drum beats. God bless.
sexual and nudity content pffffffft! whatever. Like Anonymous said; 'its most likely WMG which owns Atlantic Records. They don't want the truth to get out because it could potentially tarnish the bands/Hayley's image.' Exactly what I'm thinking. But I honestly think Josh blames Hayley on what happened to his life. He's just saying that Hayley's parents,and the label or whatever you call it wants JUST Hayley to have the spotlight.jeez, bitchy much?You guys didn't have to bitch at Josh. You have to at least TRY to understand what he's saying/ or what he's feeling rather; cause like some people are confused.
Uggg I hope Paramore doesn't turn into some cookie cutter crap now... The 3 remaining members better have some songwriting skills
Josh, that's absolutely pathetic on their part to take down the video to try and make it look like your blog is fake and that this wasn't any sort of "official statement" from you and Zac. This is only proof that furthermore shows that the rest of the band has something to hide and don't want people to know what really happened. If what you said was a "lie" or "rumor" like Hayley is playing it off to be via twitter, they wouldn't really care too much, but alas, going to a low like ridding of your video so they can cover their own asses? Wow. (Whether it was pulled by Fueled By Ramen, Atlantic, the rest of the band, it doesn't matter...) It just further adds more proof that you are being flat out 100% honest Josh.Again, I've been a huge fan for 5 years now and can honestly tell you that I'm 100% behind you and Zac on this one. My prayers are with the two of you throughout this and I hope things can get resolved. Don't listen to the negativity coming to your page. At the end of the day, only you and Zac, and the rest of the band know what truly went down. Us fans only know what we are told, and because things went on for so long, it's very hard for a lot of the fans to believe because I don't think very many people had a clue as to the true turmoil going down within the band. Much love and respect to the two of you. Keep your heads up. <3 Your true fans will stick by you through it all
Hey Josh, I was curious... are you gonna make music with your brother or are you and Zac doing separate projects?
You know what is ridiculous? You insinuating that Hayley, or any of the remaining members of Paramore, control youtube to the point where they can single-handedly take down your video. For what it is worth, I really want to encourage you to pause and think about your actions, because surely you will regret all of this when the dust settles. Is this really how you want to end your involvement with Paramore? Really? You spent seven years building this band, even if you did hate every minute of it, that has to count for something.I just don't understand why you would want to publicly end this in this manner. You are degrading the reputation of a band you were, up until recently, a member of. In twenty years, do you want to look back upon this time and remember this? Ugly words and dirty accusations?
Thats not what he was insinuating. Of course the band members don't have the power to single handedly take down his video. WMG prowls youtube taking down peoples for copyright reasons etc. In this case they took down his video because they own Atlantic Records and didn't want Josh's rant to effect Paramore's image.
and some bogus sexual content reason lol. I didn't see any hardcore action in that video... maybe I need to re watch it and look closer
hi josh, it was a good decision in my opinion, seriously.. the lyrics of the songs on the brand new eyes album got me think twice and read the lyrics first before i sing it or even put it in my ipod.. anyway... i wish both of you good luck and merry christmas.. GODBLESS!!! ---KATSCHE FROM PI
Hey Josh.I thought it was Josh and Zac's statement.Where is Zac?He should post video and comment too.Why he won't say anything about this?Because you are his big brother?
JUST REMEMBER JOSHYOUR NO STRANGER TO LOVEYOU KNOW THE RULES AND SO DO I...A FULL COMMITMENT"S WHAT IM THINKIN OFYOU WOULDNT GET THIS FROM ANY OTHER GUYI KNOW, U WANNA TELL US HOW YOUR FEELINGAND GOD WILL MAKE US UNDERSTAND
Hahaha Josh got rickrolled. Pretty epic
@xoxpunkroxxoxThe video is real.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVw2bZdu0IE
I agree with the poster a couple above me. I want to hear from Zac as well. I have a feeling that Josh wrote most of this. Maybe make a youtube video with both of you in it? with an epic drum solo and shreddage!!!
yeah, better to worry about reposting a half-assed video than to answer for your backhanded blog post. such a coward, throw it out there and run away.
Josh, watch this.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5r3jYADTXQ&feature=fvsrWas this all a lie? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MYVasXvhvQ&feature=related
ummm, i honestly don't like your band or the one you were in or whatever...but heads up. Ummm you own the name paramore. You might want to look into it, speak with a lawyer. Just throwing that out there
Go Team Jacob!...what? wrong blog? Par-who? They're brothers? Yea I know them. They directed Dumb and Dumber and There's something about mary...oh that's not them? Then who the hell are they?
Josh¡¡ saludos desde Venezuela¡¡ la gloria eterna sea para DIOS¡¡ GOD BLESS TO THE WORLD.. and you and your family and Zac.. I'm from Venezuelan... you are special.. sigan adelante¡¡ y sean felices¡¡ honrando a Dios en todo momento
you don't have to worried about the video, because many fans in the social networks have it and they've showed it! :)Like i said before.. we love you guys and we support in everything!!!we wish to you the best! =DKisses from Argentina... Mely Perez..
couple posts above me. we speak english here pedro
wow you are all soooooooo naive. HE IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH. NEITHER IS HAYLEY TELLING THE TRUTH. NO ONE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH. Every story either of them tell is only what they perceive to be true. and heres all you stupid fangirls taking sides. you idiots.
This post, leaves my love and faith in paramore in tatters.
Has anyone even considered that maybe Josh would have posted a different exit message if Hayley didn't feel the need to do what she always does, and post something first. She should have had the decency to let the fans hear it from the Farro's before she announced it. Serves her right, what would a few days have cost her? NOTHING. but she just had to be the one to announce it. Poor form
OMEEGOD I WANT CHIPOTLE NOW WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE CLOSED ARGGGG
Some people cannot handle the truth. You guys have no idea what Hayley is like. Everything is smoke and mirrors. She might seem like a nice person but maybe behind the scenes she is something else and Josh had the balls to say something. Boo hoo it upset people get over it! Like I said truth hurts people.
Josh and Zac as a drummer myself I support you guys. Infact I spread out your Truth Statement on how Hayley is being a bitch. I'm not hater and I don't think I'll be listening to Paraless this time..I'd like to think PARAMORE cause of you guys.This is what we get for being Christians guys we don't mix well with he WORLD. Now don't get me wrong I'm not so religious but I do believe!So what? I mean Hayley Williams ain't the shit you know. I totally lost all my RESPECT for that woman or would I say a little girl (considering her height) lolGod Bless :)Much Love from our band (BREAKINDAWN) check on youtube.FROM THE PHILIPPINES SLASH MIDDLE EAST ^^
LOSING THE FARROS IS LIKE HAVING NO MORE PARAMORE?! I feel I just lost a piece of me. For all these years, I've been bound to them lyrically, spiritually, emotionally.... It's hard to explain the connection I had with them, but I guess you all understand. Yes bands go through countless number of shit, but I was sure Paramore was the exception. Damn, I can't help but blame Hayley. From her topless pic to her debut solo acts..... she seems to have succumbed to the pressures of material and monetary wealth. I remember when I first discovered them a year after All We Know Is Falling, and Hayley said in all her interviews that she didn't want to be just like all the rest of the female artists out there, sexualized and overly publicized. And that's exactly what she ended up being, fucking hypocrite. And then came Riot which was still pretty amazing, but Brand New Eyes went so mainstream that it made me lose in touch with them more...Hayley seemed like a solo act since the video of Ignorance to that of Playing God. What happened to Paramore being a band you little bitch?! I was so fond of her and respected her to the greatest aptitude, but now all I have is pity for Hayley. It wouldn't be surprised if she left Taylor and Jeremy to pursue a solo career.... oh man, all those years of being attached to Paramore.... and now this WHY?!. It all seems a lie now, and I can't listen to the same songs without feeling a sense of hate for her. I hope Josh and Z ac all the best, hopefully they can start something great. Without the Farros, there is no Paramore for me... in fact without the Farros, I'd only wish the remaining of the band would perish. What's the point of continuing a band without the prime founding members?! I only wish the band was still as it was here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmMx1ecO7Xg. Now untill forever, I'll just watch my final riot dvd and pretend like they are still as happy as they seem there.
Hmmm above poster is contradicting himself all over the place lol. (regarding the religious stuff)
I don't think its necessary to hate her dude (not you Josh the guy above)
Shut up. Delete this blog. Grow up. Live as a normal people would. since you're married. go out and enjoy world. You two could've come straightforward to the band about how you're feeling (FOR THE PAST 6 YEARS that hasn't been exploded until now) instead of this sudden post.
U MAD BREH?
GOD DAMN I WOULD TOSS HAYLEY WILLIAMS' SALAD ALLLLLL NIGHT!!! HELL YEAH!!!!!!!
HEY JOSH I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT HAYLEY. DOES THE CARPET MATCH THE DRAPES???
you're still the best josh :P
Ok they delete the video? OMG! Josh you are so hot! they think that the video had sexual content. Jenna you are sooo lucky!
JOSH AND ZAC LEFT PARAMORE? DID THEY DIED?
youtube wasn't able to handle you're hotness and removed it due to sexual content. i think hayley's tit pic should be the one removed for that reason. seriously, that pic made me lose all my respect to her.
When do we hear from Zac? he is also sexy.
I cannot WAIT to see how Hayley, Jeremy, and Taylor respond. Grow the fuck up and stop bitching about how unfair things were. You were in the band and now you're not. So much for leaving on 'good terms'. If you cared as much about the fans of Paramore as you do yourself, then you would've left the demons in the closet. Have respect for what you've been apart of for the last seven years and let them move on peacefully.The lyrics of Playing God have never been so clear."Next time you point a finger I'll point you to the mirror."Take a look at your actions before you degrade ANY other person. You are being completely selfish and I hope you regret everything that you've done to cast a bad shadow upon Paramore.
Zac why!! U are so cute and I love u!! U play the drums with such passion I'm really guna miss that. I mean why do both of u have to leave...it's pretty obvious what Josh thinks about everything, what about u? Pls don't leave u guys can work through this...what Josh seems to be complaining about was ages ago! Let bygones be bygones man, move on and keep the music going for the fans!!
To anyone bitching about the video. It probably wasn't taken down for sexual content. When you flag a video as inappropriate on YouTube they give you a list of reason's to choose from. The first reason is Sexual Content and if you don't choose a reason it automatically goes to that. Chances are who ever flagged it didn't choose a reason from the given list and just let it go. The question of course remains who removed it and why? It doesn't make much difference since it's already been downloaded and reposted multiple times.
Totally agree with above! How the playing god lyrics make total sense! Geez Josh why couldn't u jst leave without bad mouthin the band! HAYLEY IN PARTICULAR! u make it seem like ur leaving is all her fault! What a nice person u are...not! If u want to leave it's ur own reasoning not because of something hayley supposedly did years ago. Grow up dude!
Hey Josh - creds to you for telling it like it is. I appreciate the honesty. Merry Christmas.
can you put it back up? i didnt see it.
I'd just like to point out that even after quitting the band, Zac doesn't get any attention. It all goes straight to Josh. Zac still gets zilch. Way to prove your point Josh.
Hey everyone! The band "The Swellers" have their input to give, and it's pretty revealing. See it here (maybe you should too, Josh...)http://jonathandiener.tumblr.com/
Hey dude, i honestly think that you should keep on bloggin! you're good blogger.but there is a one thing that bothers me. are you and hayley friends anymore?love, tytti Finlandps "I'd just like to point out that even after quitting the band, Zac doesn't get any attention. It all goes straight to Josh. Zac still gets zilch. Way to prove your point Josh. "agree with this O_O
every one chill, of course they will both have there sides, but in the end everyones is different. the only thing here that should matter to the fans is the music, not there personal LIVES. it's so creppy that you all know so much about them with actually knowing them!!!!!!!!!but it's good that they are all getting there sides out, but theres no point hating on either on of them cause in realilty we all know nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
... I really hope that your title isn't implying that Hayley tried to take your video down... because that's really quite sad. As if Hayley would try to go out of her way to take you down. I'm not saying that's what you meant, but that's my assumption based off your title of this post.I have faith in Paramore. It's like what Hayley said:"Paramore is STILL a band".No blog post is going to change that. And after reading Paramore's post, Paramore's Twitter (mainly Hayley's), Josh's blog here (it wasn't really Zac's...), and what "The Swellers" had to say about it, I now know where my heart stands. Josh and ZAC, may God help you let go of any anger or bitterness you may feel and help you move on with your careers and lives. I'm ready to advance with my favorite band: Paramore. :D
gosh, some of you guys need to calm down. If you don't respect what he's saying then just write what you think but don't go and call him an idiot. yes, josh seems bitter and stuff but try looking at it from his point of view too, not just from hayley's. I'm not taking sides on this but it's a let down to know that the band I liked for so long is another manufacture from the music industry. I mean, it's not like there weren't hints here and there but as a fan it still sucks. So with that said, josh I really hope you do what you want to do and know that there are people that still support you.
All you anonymous cowards, if you wanna call Josh all sorts of names, take the courage and own up! Read your own statements and mindless comments. I don't think for a second that you people accusing and slandering Josh were/are true Paramore fans. You supported and listened to Paramore because of Hayley Williams, Twilight, B.o.B., etc.I have met Paramore "fans" who claimed that they were their biggest "fans" and yet, when I asked them for the names of the other members besides Hayley, they could not name any. Isn't it a shame? Hayley was and is not the ONLY contributor to Paramore. If you bother to read the lyric books that come with the CD, you would notice that most, if not all songs, credit Josh as a co-writer/writer. I cannot believe that there were so many things going on behind the scenes. I am a huge Paramore fan and it breaks my heart to know the truth. I am confused and bedazzled at the same time because Hayley is saying one thing, and now Josh is saying another. All I know is that I will try to piece Hayley's story and Josh's story onto a huge paper and try to figure things out.Josh, I wish you all the best. Thank you for your time in Paramore. You were my favorite member and will continue to be an inspiration on the guitars for me.
Is this the video?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVw2bZdu0IE
is there anything saying that you can critics others in BIBLE?? haha.. way to go josh.. you are so holy and nice.. and hayley is the bad one.. CONTINUE CRITICS PARAMORE if you want to..we'll just laugh while enjoy seeing your immature behavior against your own friends. BACK STABBER!
Hey Josh and Zac, I am truly sry for the things that have happened and the things you guys have gone through. I really look up to you 2 as musicians and would totally love for you to produce/co-produce my bands next record lol. or even just get together and write some sweet music haha. Contact me if your down man. email@example.com you guys are truly incredible, keep doing what your doing and dont ever change, GOD BLESS
Josh,Make yourself, wife and family happy.... because in the end, that is all we got. Thank you for 7 years of greatness. Thank you for your honesty. And finally, thank you for pushing yourself to go as far as you did. No one really knows what kind of lifestyle you live(d), on the road, in an airplane or hotel constantly. Takes a toll on you and your loved ones. Please take good care of yourself!! And keep us updated on Josh Farro, the husband.. I am curious to see what the future holds for him.-Janelle
haven't seen the video. but all i have to say about this is i hope the future brings you more happiness. I saw Paramore play three times in 2010 and i honestly felt with each show, it became more forced than the last. Your a very talented musician josh and i hope you make it, if/when you get another band together. i don't hold much hope for 'paramore' though without you as a song writer there, i think they'll have success, but it'll be riding off the success they already have.Don't feel bad about telling the truth through your eyes. The people who are mad are the ones who aren't aware there was more than just one red headed member.All the best for your future.
What I don't get is if you knew all this from the beginning, why'd you do it in the first place? And okay maybe you were young. But after the cancelled tour in Europe, why didn't you quit then? It seems you never truly loved the band and the fans, always hated being second best to Hayley, hated being a puppet to her "management". You've been bitter from the start and sorry to say, you and Zac brought it on yourselves by not standing up and leaving when you knew it was wrong (in your eyes). I hope you both find peace in your lives and move on like you should have done in the beginning.You did not take the fans' feelings into consideration. Leaving should've been the end of it. You made it worse on both ends of the spectrum.
FYI not only one person (Hayley who all you immature idiots are assuming) can take down a video. It was a (real) band of people. Pun intended.
I like your gear... :D
Chances are are load of people flagged it until it got taken down. Personally, I don't see the point.We asked for the reason why Josh and Zac left, and we got it. Simple as. He's already stated himself that it doesn't have any of the good things about being in Paramore because it's telling us the reason he and Zac left (therefore, it's not likely to be overly-happy).Granted, I think it was a little harsh towards Hayley, but if that's the way Josh and Zac feel then who are we to judge?Josh, I still think both you and Zac are awesome. Good luck in the future! xx
HAYLeY sold her soul to the illuminati!!!! lol
This is so ridiculous. Everyone is taking sides and blaming things on people. For goodness sake, couldn't we all just grow up, seriously 'nudity and sexual content'- I mean yes Josh has a fit face but, just stop giving him and Jenna hell!! I feel really sorry for him and I can't believe PARAMORE fans can act like this. It is so embarrasing. Grow up and do something with your lives. It was joshs decision to leave the band and now everyone hates him and hayley :/Love you Josh. God bless. Much love xoxo- Faith A
And I'll take the truth at any cost
its sort of stupid cuz surely if Hayley really wanted to be solo artist and have all the spotlight then wouldn't she be?Why would she have gone back to Paramore if she couldv'easily gone for a solo contract?
i can't believe that some hayley fanatics did this. you guys are amazing and i believe you, as many other fans do. i realized that hayley was not all that she perceived to be when she uploaded that infamous picture of her topless to twitter; makes her seem vain and it's kinda hypocritical saying she's a christian.god bless, and hope you, zac, your family and jenna have a merry christmas!
I had really mixed emotions about this. I mean, I was watching the people I looked up to, my inspiration, the people that got me through some of the hardest times, fall apart. And then I realized when I saw your job description as free. I looked again at your profile picture of you and Jenna. You're HAPPY now. I don't think so I KNOW so. And that makes it [literally] easier for me to sleep at night. I sincerely wish you and Zac the best. As long as you guys are happy, I, really am, happy too.I'll pray for you guys, and merrychristmas :)
I think hayley has better things to do than sit on youtube, like actually have a career.It's obvious the brothers only left/caused all this hassle to get publicity for there new "band" you will never be as good as paramore.YOU would have got nowhere without hayley.All you have done is slag her off when you could have left the band years ago instead of dating her!Also as a fan you have pissed me off how you have turned so many people against a band that was once very important to us!and how you obviously dont care about the fans that paid 100's on tickets, albums, merch etc and believed in you all as a band.a simple thanks would have been nice!!!
I do appreciate that all the hard work and upset you guys went through to create paramore and please fans but is it really necessary, to get into blaming people over the internet and very publicly. The truth can set you free but sometimes it is better if some things are kept in the dark.
Stay strong Josh.
It's been uploaded again by various sources, so if someone wants to find it they will.I'm not taking sides here because I love all of you. I will still listen to Paramore, but I love and support you and Zac too. You were always my favourite band member, so you not being there anymore is a huge loss for me.What I don't understand is why Hayley tweeted that it's all rumours and gossip, but I'm glad that you wrote your piece and explained your side of the story to us. None of this seems like a lie, and I believe every word you've written.Just hang in there Josh, and I hope that you keep updating this page and that one day you will appear on the music scene again, Paramore or not.
God, I am so ashamed of the "Paramore fans" bad mouthing you guys! They shouldn't be "Paramore fans", they should be Hayley fans. -_________-
This kinda makes me sad, I don't even want to listen to all my Paramore albums now knowing that they have fake meaning or what ever you want to call it. If what you say is true, then Hayley may have made mistakes, but you guys are just as bad for letting it go on for so long.
"This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy on nudity or sexual content.Sorry about that." Why did you have to be naked in the video, Josh? Uncalled for! :PJoking, man. Good luck with everything, I guess The truth never set you all free. Might as well do it yourselves ;)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12d2JJAJoeE totally found it :D
PEOPLE CALM DOWN..JOSH DID NOTHING WRONG AGAINST THE BAND..HE JUST TELL THE TRUTH..I MEAN HE LET US KNOW FACTS THAT WE DIDNT KNOW BEFORE AND OBVOUSLY WOULDNT KNOW BY HAYLEY..THE OTHER SIDE OF PARAMORE..HE DID THIS BECAUSE HAYLEY DIDNT GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO SAY GOODBYE AS HE WANTED TO..SHE TRIED TO MANAGE THE BAND EVEN AT THE END..SO JOSH JUST DECIDED TO STOP BEING IN SILENT NOW..AND I THANK YOU FOR TELLING US THE TRUTH..I SUPPORT YOU JOSH AND I UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS..I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST IN YOUR LIFE AND THANKYOU FOR EVERETHING YOU DID FOR PARAMORE..
I really want to see the video Josh. Thanks for telling us the truth. I can't believe that mostly everything about my favorite "band" is a lie. I am very disappointed. Actually, I began to doubt Hayley since I saw that scandalous photo of hers. I was so shocked at that time because of her good girl and Christian image. I thought she was different with the other celebrities, but I guess she isn't who I thought she is. I hope you'll be happy and be able to move on with your life.I'm sad, because I think Paramore has just lost a fan. :( Maybe I'll still check out their new music. But it will never be the same as before.
JOSH! I STILL LOVE YOU! :))) AND THE REST OF PARAMORE! ZAC ♥ ! :))
Josh mate, you and your bro are really fucking cool, but it is still a shame things went like this. Are you going to miss paramore?
you wanted to know what happened, right? SO HERE IT IS. WHY YOU PEOPLE KEEP COMPLAINING? what happened, happened, and reality is something you won't always be agree with whether you like it or not! so leave the man alone, for god's sake. let's just wish him a happy life and hope he is up to something new that will make us happy to, just like the old times.
Well I can tell you that they will keep trying to shut you and your brother up.BTW why don't you guys have a tumblr account? You made me have to search for my account on this in order to follow the blog hahaha.
Don't bother, no one cares...Better off without you.Shoulda been a man 6 years ago and walked away if it was so bad. Why feel the need to tear everything down like this? The statement on paramore.net was nice, wished you guys luck and all that. Why the hell do you feel the need to do this? This is the last bit of fame you'll ever have - so enjoy it bro. I hope it was worth this shit. I saw the UK tour, the liverpool show, and unfortunately was on your side of the stage. You looked so fucking bored and pissed off. Jeremy was going for it, getting his side hyped up - you just stood there like a sack of shit. Paramore doesn't need you guys.#paramorenomatterwhat
Josh. I used to love you so much. You were my favorite band member. But you are so childish. If you were so unhappy you could have left the band years ago, rather than making this huge, woe-is-me production of it now.Suck it up, grow some balls,and quit blaming Hayley for everything that goes wrong in your life.
Fuck you Josh. Don't you think is enough getting out of the band? Do you want to destroy the band too? YOU ARE RIDICULOUS. That's the truth. Shut up! You're acting like a kid, get the band in peace and get Jenna and travel, but travel a LOT! And forget about Paramore! Oh, yeah, I think you must not have money, like you said, everything was related to Hayley. Ah, do me a favor and DIE!
Haha, nudity and sexual content? You can't help but laugh.The nerve of some people. xPGood luck getting it back on.
