Paramore first female-fronted band to win Best Rock Album at the Grammys.

Linda Uzueta

The Grammys this year saw very much-needed improvement in awarding women for their successes in music. Such as 7 out of 8 were women in the album of the year category. And the night's biggest winner was Phoebe Bridgers winning 4 awards at the annual ceremony. But one of the big achievements of the night was for the rock category at this year’s Grammys was Paramore being the first female-fronted band to win the Grammys for best rock album for their album ‘This Is Why’. But who is Paramore? Paramore is an alternative rock band that first got their start in 2004 in Franklin Tennessee. The band consists of three members Hayley Williams (lead singer), Taylor York (lead guitar), and Zac Farro (drummer) The lead singer Hayley Williams was only sixteen when she signed with Atlantic Records in 2004.

The award was first awarded in 1995 were the Rolling Stones won for ‘Voodoo Lounge’. Because rock is such a male-dominated field only two women (Sheryl Crow and Alanis Morrisette) have won the award before Paramore. Yes, the award has been given to women the first being Alanis Morrissette in 1996 but, never a female-fronted band to do so. But why did it take so long? When you have an amazing band such as No Doubt who has been nominated two times but never won the category.

However, due to their popularity and the band not being as widely known as their competitors in the category this year which were Metallica and Foo Fighters. A lot of people had doubts that they were even going to win. But the Grammys proved everyone wrong on Sunday when they announced they had won the award on Sunday.

As for what next for Paramore we don’t know the band chose not to go to the ceremony and stayed at band member Zac Farro’s house to watch the event live. They shared in an Instagram post the day after stating that this is a reminder to keep on pushing the boundaries in the rock space.

The sexism of award shows-Opinion

by Yesenia Sandoval

On January 7, 2024, the 81st Golden Globes were hosted by Jo Koy, an American comedian, and
actor. The “comedian” was accused of making inappropriate and sexist comments. The first comment was targeted toward “Barbie” a critically acclaimed film about the underlying struggles of being a woman. It was nominated for best picture and was boiled down to “‘Oppenheimer’ is based on the 721-page Pulitzer Prize-winning book about the Manhattan Project — and ‘Barbie’ is about a plastic doll with big boobies,” he joked as the audience responded with a muted laugh. During the same award show the “comedian” also poked fun at the global phenomenon Taylor Swift, following the fact she has attended multiple Kansas Chiefs games in support of her new boyfriend, Travis Kelce football tight end “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift,” When the camera had switched to Taylor for a reaction, she was simply seen taking a sip of her drink. Many online stated that Taylor Swift is “overacting” and “get over it.” This hasn’t been the only time men had objective or made sexist jokes a few examples.
