Being female and fronting an all-male band was like throwing your soul to the wolves. People didn’t know how to take you - if your supposed power meant that they should be intimidated or inspired. In the midst of all of that there’s just a tension. Sometimes I didn’t want that. All these reviews would come out that would paint me as some sort of dictator in a band setting, or as a brat – it’s because I was a female, really. I’m not bitter about it but I grew up understanding that I was a little kid wearing a demon costume that I couldn’t see but everyone else could.
