These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Alternate Character Interpretation: Upon the departure of the Farro brothers (and their exit statement), either Hayley is a self-centered diva who let fame get to her head and treated Josh and Zac as pawns for her own career, or she did nothing wrong and the brothers are just sore about not getting as much attention. And last, possible third interpretation: Hayley is naive and was being controlled by the label and her parents, and nobody in the band really did anything wrong.
Another alternate interpretation concerning the twitpic: She's said in interviews and talks concerning the image that she had taken the picture with an old phone for no sinister reason and then lost the phone, where it was found with the image and used to hack her twitter to upload it. Either it was an accident that she didn't mean to do, she uploaded it purposely for the press it would give them, or she was telling the truth and she really did lose the phone with the pic on. Depending on your opinion of the band and your level of cynicism, it could be either of the three.
Face of the Band: Hayley Williams. Has in the past led to Williams lashing out at the press for implying she was somehow more important than the rest of the band.
I Am the Band: It turns out that Hayley is the only signed member of Paramore, and the others are just a glorified backing band. Hayley appears not to like this setup, but it led to the schism in the band.
Hayley herself has blasted this claim in 2013, at a private gig in London. She highlit a review of the then-latest album that stated "it feels like a solo debut". She then tore said reviewer a new one by claiming, "I wouldn't be here, and I wouldn't want to be here, if it weren't for the two people standing to my left and right".
Fan Community Nickname: Parawhores. May come from the meaning of the word ‘paramour’ (an illicit lover) which is pronounced the same as Paramore.
Misaimed Fandom: Despite being an alternate rock band with angsty, yet hyper, songs that seem to be more directed at teens and young adults, they have a large 'tween' following, most likely due to them releasing a song for Twilight. A number of their haters seem to be just Tween haters who target them for this following.
Tear Jerker: Decode, The Only Exception, Brick by Boring Brick, Miracle, We Are Broken.
When It Rains, which Hayley wrote shortly after her friend committed suicide.
A sorta one. When the Farro brothers left the band, Hayley had nothing but positive words for them, and wished them all the best. The Farros however, responded very negativly, blaming their departure on the I Am the Band example above, and claming she's not a real Christian because a song has a 'blasphemous' line in it ('The truth never set me free so I did it myself'), and had nothing but negative words to say about her. Depending on your opinion or which side you are on the above Alternate Character Interpretation, it's either a justified reaction from them, or a real Kick the Dog moment for them.
They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The vast majority of the fan base reacted positively to the mild Genre Shift of Brand New Eyes, and many consider it to be their best album. However, there are a few people who consider it to be too poppy, when in fact, it's the exact opposite.
And their self-titled fourth album has had this a LOT because of the slightly stronger Genre Shift - people are even hating on "Still Into You" because it is too HAPPY.
It's possible to interpret "When It Rains" as claiming that the suicidal person chose to be depressed, and should be blamed for not explaining their reasons for suicide to the singer so that the singer could have closure.
