Total AC Blog recently conducted an interview with HALESTORM lead singer Lzzy Hale. An excerpt from the chat follows below.
Total AC Blog: How does it feel to be the chick amongst the guys? Do you ever feel like you need any girl time or do you like it?
Lzzy Hale: I like it! Too much estrogen makes it a little weird! I spend so much time with the guys that literally I become a crazy person when there are too many girls around. We’re usually not touring with a bunch of girls. The last tour I had that was consistently with another girl was Carnival Of Madness last year with Amy Lee [EVANESCENCE]. Within the first five minutes of us meeting, it was shoes, boys, makeup, all these things pouring out of me that I never talk about! The guys in my band were, like, “You become a different person when Amy’s around!” I like being a girl. I like being with my guys. We all meet in the middle somewhere. They’re not über agro, they actually have really good hygiene [laughs] and for the most part, they enjoy everything that I like to do too. I think that just comes from growing up together. I’ve never taken being a girl in a band as a negative thing. It’s nice to stick out like a sore thumb on whatever bill and it’s nice to torture all of the guys that are on the tour with you because you can wear the high heels and they can’t! It’s a lot of fun!
Total AC Blog: You are a role model to so many of your female fans. How does that make you feel? Does it freak you out at all or do you kind of just go with it?
Lzzy Hale: I always err on the side of honesty. I’m sure I’m going to say something stupid over Twitter or something like that, if I haven’t already. Either way, whether it’s a bad influence or a good influence, I’m not going to pretend to be something I’m not. It’s just too much work to keep
