Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia Sees Herself as ‘Geeky,’ Not a Sex Symbol

Century Media

If there’s a “Hottest Women in Metal” list, Cristina Scabbia is on it.

The frontwoman for Italian metallers Lacuna Coil is a Mediterranean, raven-haired, exotic beauty. There’s no denying the fact that she’s a stunner. However, Scabbia downplays her sexy, beloved-by-metal-dudes image, recently telling Hails + Horns in an interview constructed of fan questions, that she sees herself as a “geeky girl,” rather than a sexpot or a sex symbol.

A fan sent a question to Scabbia, asking “You are my idol. You are strong, meaningful and a hell of a model figure to look up to. How do you see yourself? Did you ever think you would be a role model to somebody like me, and who was yours?”

Scabbia answered thoughtfully, saying “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.”

The singer also revealed that she hardly wears makeup when she’s not on stage or in the spotlight, and that true Lacuna Coil fans know that she is simple and unfussy. Scabbia said, “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.”

Cristina is a cool, unassuming, non-egotistical rock chick who happens to be really hot! That’s why we love her.
