26. Hayley Williams
Stock Watch: Up. The flame-haired frontwoman of Paramore has already survived the fracturing of her band and a mini-scandal thanks to a leaked photo she took of her own mini-Hayleys. She took a big step into diva-dom with her guest vocals on B.o.B’s No. 2 hit “Airplanes.” Now Williams and her remaining bandmates are setting the table for a major comeback with a new single from the “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” soundtrack and the writing of their fourth album.
Latest Album: 2009’s “Brand New Eyes”
Extracurricular Activities: While working on her band’s comeback album, Williams is occupying herself with magazine fashion shoots, awards show appearances and the recording of a song for the new Muppet movie soundtrack. —Jeff Royer
