istillloveparamores ‘rant’ about the new albums cover got me into doing some research, and to take a more artists standpoint on it.
Now, most of the time in any piece of art work colors are not thrown on their willy nilly. They have a meaning or they symbolize something, trying to reach a bigger meaning without just screaming it at you. In this specific piece blue is a main color. It’s bright and vibrant and easily noticeable. And when I did some research, guess what blue symbolizes?
- New Beginnings
Blue skies are emblematic of optimism and better opportunities
Blue is the color of loyalty and faith.
Blue is power.
Isn’t that interesting? You can put this all together of how it ties into this new album.
Now when you research more in depth on the color green, another main factor of color in this piece you come up with some more interesting discoveries.
Green symbolizes things like
- Self Respect
- Well Being
- Freedom to Pursue New Ideas
Green will help give you protection from fears and anxieties connected with the demands of others
It also means learning, growth and harmony.
Green is the color of balance.
Now black comes up with some negative things most of the time but it can also express the depths of the unknown. Just like this album has been for them.
And lastly, have you noticed that the only dash of pink is on Hayley? I found an interesting bit about how pink can symbolize wanting to stay a child at heart, or wanting to keep some part of that childhood innocence. Could that symbolize how Hayley has told us she’ll never really let that teen angst girl inside her go?
Could any of this really connect at all? I don’t know, you decide.
I don’t believe in coincidences.
“The ‘fame’ part of music is bogus anyway. I will be ecstatic if our album does well and people love it, but I’ll still feel dumb every time we go to LA and some paparazzi guy—who doesn’t even have a clue who I am—starts taking pictures of me and calling me ‘Kayley’. I’ll still be embarrassed if we’re walking down a red carpet, all dressed up, and someone asks me what I think of Miley Cyrus’ new haircut. Are you kidding me? That’s really what it means to be called ‘famous’ in this country, and that stuff is meaningless. I like the work part, the creative part, and the connection I get to make with real people because of music.”
