Lzzy Hale Admits Why She Felt ‘Forced’ To Sexualize Herself

Lzzy Hale of Halestorm recently appeared on Metal XS, where she admitted how she used her sexuality to gain more media attention for the band. During the interview, Hale discussed her involvement in Revolver’s ‘Hottest Chicks in Metal’ feature and reflected on Halestorm’s earlier days.

The frontwoman admitted feeling left out due to her looks and shared:

“Years ago, when we were first starting to tour, and you’re trying to get yourself into magazines and get attention for this or that, I was involved in a lot of that where… and, in a lot of ways, I kind of felt a little left out ’cause I’ve never been one to really bare it all, you know?”

Hale then stated that women rockers are ‘kind of forced’ into being sexualized in the rock or metal scene. She added:

“And so I’d be like in Revolver magazine for ‘Hottest Chicks In Metal’ or whatever and be like the only one fully clothed. [Laughs] But, yeah, you’re kind of forced into it because if that is the publication, you want attention for your band, and you wanna talk about the music and everything.”

She also mentioned that though women were sexualized in the scene a few years back, the number of women has increased, which is no longer the case. Additionally, she expressed her admiration for her fellow female members of the community.
