Paramore's Hayley Williams covers Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'

Lady Gaga covers: Everyone’s doing them! Including Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams, 21, who shot a piano-based take on “Bad Romance” and posted the clip via Twitter yesterday. Not bad at all.

“Playing ‘Bad Romance’ on the piano and pretending to be @LadyGaga,” Williams tweeted before liberating the video. “Why haven’t I ever done this before? Most fun I’ve had in ever.” And, later: “feel a bit crazy posting this… but you asked for it! my apologies to miss gaga. love, your friend, lady haha.”

Watch Hayley’s (er, Lady Haha’s) “Bad Romance” after the jump and see what you think.

    Dude, that was awesome. Hayley, you rock girl.

  • elena

    She looks a little bored until she gets to the chorus, but Hayley Williams doesn’t have a bad live voice! Girl needs to stop jumping so much in her concerts so I can appreciate.

  • Maximum Bob

    Not bad. Nothing can save that “song” though.

    Pomplamoose Music’s version of Telephone is the best cover I’ve heard.

    • andy

      That “song’ is awesome, so don’t be a prick.

  • UGH

    I cannot ever see these videos on here!

  • confidential

    I thought it was good. And Bad Romance is a great song. It’s extra for the purpose of beig extra.

    • Nick T

      Something they have in common: they both sound even better live!

  • nunnya

  • Connor

    AMAZING. I love her, she’s amazing

  • Tarc

    Her version of Kings Of Leon’s Use Sombody is superior, but this was fun.

  • mercedes

    really awesome!!!!!!!!!!! i love it …i would buy this cover on itunes

  • roman

    sounds like she’s playing a Jewish ditty and singing in Hebrew. Not that I know any Hebrew words. Just that it sounds liek it with what she’s playing.

  • NYLA

    Hayley has an amzing voice. The girl can sing AND write. If she wanted to, she could easily tweek her image and go the pop star route. So I respect her for focusing on rock music. Tis is a good cover by the way.

  • duffy

  • love_game
