Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Discusses the Role of Image + Sex Appeal in Rock

Mary Ouellette, As a woman in the entertainment industry, there is always the question of how much to play up the sex appeal, and Halestorm ‘s Lzzy Hale  shared with her thoughts on taking part in sexy photo shoots and the focus on image in the music industry. Hale explained, “I don’t mind dressing up and doing the short skirt and high heels thing. I tell this to a lot of people because the only stipulation that I have about this is that you have to make sure you have something to back it up. You can’t totally ride on the fact that I’m going to show my legs and people are going to show attention. If they can get past the legs, make sure you can actually sing and be good at your instruments. Because in all honesty, all of us that are dressing up on stage, we aren’t going to be wearing fishnets forever, you gotta make sure you have a little something to ya.” With that being said, Hale says she’s come to accept the shoots as part of the industry, adding, “Sex and rock ‘n’ roll have been going together hand-in-hand since the beginning of time. You can’t get away from it.” The frontwoman also says that while image may get the attention of some fans, she’s been enthused by how their female fan base has grown and opened the doors for more women to enjoy hard rock. She explains, “I’m telling you, though, there’s a moment in every show where I’m looking out and I see all of these girls who are not there because their boyfriends dragged them along, you know? They’re very empowered, a little crazy like me, and it’s wonderful to be in a room like that because when we first started out there weren’t a whole lot of girls at the rock shows unless you count the girlfriends of somebody in the band.” Hale adds that she partook in her fair share of mosh pits and rocked out with the guys when she was younger and is thrilled to see girls coming to rock shows and carving their own paths with the world of rock and roll.

Soundgarden Rock ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire Soundgarden are now back in full force after announcing their reunion in 2010, and to help welcome them back in style, the band performed on the Monday night (Nov. 26) episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ In front of a standing-room-only crowd, Soundgarden took the outdoor stage to play ‘By Crooked Steps’ and ‘Been Away Too Long’ before surprising the live audience with three extra tracks off the air. The legendary grunge band released their first all-new album in 16 years, ‘King Animal,’ on Nov. 13, selling 83,000 copies in its first week and debuting at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album has received mostly positive reviews from critics and fans, including the ‘Kimmel’ audience, which gave Soundgarden a red-hot reception as they jammed on two of their newest tracks. After plowing through ‘By Crooked Steps’ and ‘Been Away Too Long,’ Soundgarden gave their fans performances of ‘Rowing,’ ‘Rusty Cage’ and ‘Beyond the Wheel.’ Soundgarden may be seen by some as simply a gem from the past, but when checking out the band’s new material, especially played live, music addicts of all ages and backgrounds are sure to embrace Soundgarden in the present. Check out love footage of Soundgarden performing on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ along with fan-shot footage of the band continuing their set after the cameras had been shut off.

Slash’s Wife Critiques Axl Rose’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ Appearance, Weighs in on His Weight

Angela Weiss, Getty Images Slash may be telling interviewers he’s finished discussing his years in Guns N’ Roses — or his relationship with Axl Rose — but that moratorium apparently doesn’t apply to his wife, Perla Hudson. Mrs. Slash tossed another log on the long-smoldering feud between Rose and his exiled former guitarist in a recent series of comments to Us Weekly , indicating she was less than impressed with Axl’s appearance earlier this week on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ “I was waiting for something enlightening and all I got was promotion for a show and his evident affinity for a chili burger,” quipped Hudson. “Where is the love, Axl? And I stayed up for this? Sex, drugs and chili dogs. Long live Axl Rose. And a Halloween tree.” Continuing to joke about Rose’s well-documented affinity for parting ways with band members — and pointing out that he’s no longer the rail-thin rock god he was in his youth — Hudson added, “He’s had a Slash, a Buckethead and a Bumblefoot, and evidently way too many Tommy’s chili burgers! Hope there were some left for the audience!” Perla was referring to Rose’s announcement at the end of his segment that he was giving away burgers to all of the members of the studio audience. Hell evidently hath no fury like a scorned guitarist’s wife. We wouldn’t expect to hear anything in response from Axl’s camp, but you never know — this war of words has been going on for nearly 20 years now, and shows no signs of stopping.
