This track may talk about what it feels like to be fake happy but producing this video with director and band member, Zac Farro and Hayley Williams jumping around town in a leotard was absolutely pure joy.

Paramore – “Fake Happy” Video

The new video for Paramore's single Fake Happy just dropped and is already trending at #4 on YouTube. Zac Farro (band member and director for the video) did an incredible job... Such a great time working with this team! Nothing fake happy about Hayley Williams who was an absolute delight.

"Fake Happy" is one of many amazing pop-rock constructions on Paramore's After Laughter, an album I criminally underrated upon its release and have come to love dearly. The tune finds Hayley Williams lamenting widespread artificial contentment in polite society, the unspoken rules that lead us to re...

MoviePass Drops Its Price, Pleasing Customers but Angering AMC

"Membership to the theater going subscription service MoviePass surged after it dropped its prices this month, with more than 150,000 new users signing up in just two days. Its members can now go to the movies 365 times a year for $9.95 a month" -- NY Times (http://nyti.ms/2w6g5vz)

We're curious: how many of you are subscribers to MoviePass...?

The subscription service for movie tickets gained over 150,000 users after slashing its price, but a leading chain said it is “not welcome here.”
