Tom Jones has said sexual abuse is widespread in the music industry , and talked about the harassment he faced in the early days of his career. His comments come as the wave of accusations against Harvey Weinstein of sexual impropriety have expanded to figures in the music world.

Hayley Williams opened up about the stories of sexual assault and abuse she’s been reading from friends and peers in the music industry lately in a lengthy tweet on Monday night (July 20) in which the Paramore singer and solo star sent her love and support to those who’ve suffered while revealing her own experience as a frontwoman in the emo scene.

“It makes my stomach hurt and my eyes turn red,” Williams said about unspecified stories of sexual and other forms of abuse at the hands of men in bands or in other parts of the music industry. “It’s so crazy to me how frontwomxn can be such powerful inspiration to so many young people, who see us as very much ‘in control’ of ourselves and our immediate surroundings when we’re up on a stage.”

Williams wrote that she knows that powerful feeling, which is very real for her, transcending “any notion of gender” and, for her, is more than the sum of her parts when she’s on stage. “But the truth is, all us ‘music people’ are first and foremost human beings,” she wrote, adding that female lead singers are vulnerable and feel shame just like any other young person.

While Williams did not specify which stories she’s been reading, her post came amid recent reports of alleged sexual abuse and misconduct leveled at musicians and record labels and it found her thinking out loud about the vulnerability of young male rock performers that can transform due to the ingrained toxicity in the scene. “They are most definitely vulnerable too and unfortunately — whether consciously or not — wrapped up in the toxicity of a culture that has existed long before most of us became a factor in it,” she wrote.

Hayley Williams Covers Björk’s ‘Unisions’ Per a Fan’s Request

  Hayley Williams Covers Björk’s ‘Unisions’ Per a Fan’s Request Hayley Williams performed one lucky fan’s ideal Björk cover yesterday (July 15), and artists from Maggie Rogers to Lauren Jauregui praised her acoustic version. “Someone asked me to do a @bjork song a while back. i’d actually hoped to cover a different song of hers live this year but i guess that will have to wait until some other time,” the Paramore lead singer wrote on social media with a two-minute black-and-white video. “anyway, this one has to be in my top 5 – ‘Unison’. apologies for the crudely casual rendition.

I had sex for like an hour straight yesterday. And i woke up today and my lower stomach hurt so bad. I've had this pain before it almost felt like I couldn't breathe, suck in my stomach and barely walk. Also my urine burned after but I had cranberry juice to limit the burning.

She was very clear, though, that the behavior is “inexcusable” and the only way to change it is to “call it out and cut it out.” For her part, Williams said she is grateful that she has “somehow come through my career mostly unscathed,” even as she acknowledged having her own tales of unnamed relationships that involved “improper power-imbalance, narcissism” and just what it was like to be a young woman in the early 2000s emo scene.

“I am a rare one to not have any actual horror stories,” she wrote. The note, she concluded, was merely her way of saying she’s proud of her peers who’ve opened up recently and shared stories they’ve kept to themselves out of “fear of shame or blame. I stand with them to help further our collective cause: to protect womxn and young folx in the music scene.”

Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley posing for a photo: Let the games begin. The band formerly known as Lady Antebellum announced in June that they were changing their name — but the transition hasn’t been easy. Band members Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood confirmed that they would be taking the country group in a new direction after acknowledging the dangerous history of the word “antebellum” amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests. “As a band, we have strived for our music to be a refuge … inclusive of all,” the Grammy winners declared via a lengthy Instagram statement on June 11. “After much personal reflection, band discussion, prayer and many honest conversations with some of our closest Black friends and colleagues, we have decided to drop the word ‘antebellum’ from our name and move forward as Lady A, the nickname our fans gave us almost from the start.” Scott, 34, Kelley, 38, and Haywood, 37, admitted that they felt “regretful and embarrassed” about not being more aware of the meaning behind the word and its connection to slavery. “We are deeply sorry for the hurt this has caused and for anyone who has felt unsafe, unseen or unvalued,” they added. One day after news of their name change made headlines, the band faced backlash from blues singer Anita White, who has been performing under the name Lady A for over 20 years.     “This is too much right now,” White, 61, told Rolling Stone magazine on June 12. “They’re using the name because of a Black Lives Matter incident that, for them, is just a moment in time. If it mattered, it would have mattered to them before. It shouldn’t have taken George Floyd to die for them to realize that their name had a slave reference to it. … For them to not even reach out is pure privilege.” Less than one week after White shared her story, the two Lady A’s sat down for a discussion on how they could find “common ground.” Though the band alluded to making positive developments with White, they issued a lawsuit against her the following month. “Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope to join together with Anita White in unity and common purpose has ended,” the country singers said in a statement to Us Weekly on July 9. “We hope Anita and the advisers she is now listening to will change their minds about their approach. We can do so much more together than in this dispute.” Scroll down to learn more details about the Lady A drama.
