You never see them in the same room at the same time do you...

We all thought Hayley Williams was hard at work on the upcoming fifth Paramore album. Turns out she's actually been holed up in a studio in Nashville for a very different reason - she's hiding from the demagorgon! 

A Paramore fan on Twitter pointed out the striking similarity between Hayley Williams and Eleven from Stranger Things.

Pretty dead on tbh.

In fact, this ain't the first time Hayley has resembled everyone's favourite magical 1980s child/fashion icon. Let's review the evidence shall we?

1) They share a favourite food.

Waffles you say?

Stranger Things, Netflix

Sounds familiar...


2) They keep changing their hair.


Hayley even owns her own hair-dye company - perfect for making an instant disguise so she can't get caught by any shady government agencies...


3) They share a love of cycling!

Fueled By Ramen

Have we seen that bike somewhere before?

Yes. Yes we certainly have

Stranger Things, Netflix

This is getting scary!


4) They can both rock a denim jacket!

Fueled By Ramen

It was a strong look in the 1980s and it's a strong look now. 

Stranger Things, Netflix

Can't deny it.


5) They are both big fans of the 1980s.

What. A. Tune!!!


6) They're both the "Mom" of their friendship group.

Fueled By Ramen

It's a tough job, but somebody has to control all these silly boys!

7) Diners are their favourite hang out spot!

Tbf, who doesn't love a good diner.

They're the best!


8) They've both been spotted at DisneyWorld.

Disney Everyday

But we've never seen them there together...

Coincidence? Or are they THE SAME PERSON?!?!


9) They both have MAD rap skills.

Hayley's got some serious rhymes.

And Eleven is a straight-up MONSTER!


Hayley is Eleven. Eleven is Hayley. Deal. With. It
