Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia: I’m a ‘Geeky Girl’

When one thinks of the talented and beautiful songstress Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil, “geeky” might not be the first word that comes to mind. However, the Italian vocalist begs to differ.

When a fan asks via HailsandHorns.com (thanks Noisecreep) how she sees herself, Cristina says, “I see myself as a geeky girl who’s been able to realize that it is beautiful to be unique, as everyone is. I love to play with my image and I find myself a pretty sensual person, but at the same time I am surprised when people look at me as a sex symbol.”

She continues, “I barely wear make-up offstage and my fans know it. I am happy to be a role model to some people, ‘cause I am sure that whoever looks up to me can see the ‘girl next door that rocks’ thing.”

When another fan poses the question her sound fresh and original she states, “I think the key is to be open-minded and realize that as life proceeds, experiences are different and you change as a person. That doesn’t mean refusing the past but it means to get the best out if it and to be ready to embrace the future.”

She adds, “We never felt the pressure to enter the clichés; we actually don’t really conform to any. It can be good or bad, but that’s what we are and whoever loves us it’s because they really love Lacuna Coil, not a genre.”

Strong, geeky, open-minded, intelligent — no wonder Scabbia is a candidate in the 2011 Loudwire Music Awards category of Rock Goddess of the Year — vote now! Also, be sure to check out Full Metal Jackie’s recent interview with the Lacuna Coil singer.
