This is a younger Nikki Simmons with Hayley Williams of Paramore. Nikki has received a lot of negative attention for ‘looking like’ Hayley, which is not something she could help or intended, and ‘copying’ her simply because she is also a singer and a band frontwoman. A year ago Rachel, a friend to both female singers, wrote an article about the ‘Comparamore' bullying, which can be read here. Hayley read this article and responded by stating that it is the music and the message that matters, not what singers look like, and expressed disappointment that people (including her own fans) would contribute to the struggles frontwomen already face. Even now some people still attempt to criticize Nikki, but being the strong lady she is, she is kind to everyone and ignores the hate. Fans should respect Nikki as her own person.
