B.o.B. and Hayley Williams’s Connection Goes Beyond Words

It's old hat nowadays for musicians to collaborate on a hit song without ever having been in the same room. Well, B.o.B.'s taking it up a notch: The young fellow told Chelsea Handler that, outside of some Twitter interaction, he's never actually spoken to Paramore's Hayley Williams, his collaborator on his most recent big saccharine single, "Airplanes." To Handler's askance expression, B.o.B. responds: "“I mean, it’s 2010." So true. [Idolator]
