"The point is that I would never want to be a man. I'm not afraid to be a woman."

Revolver's 2014 Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock tour finished up in Anaheim, CA on March 20th. The bands on this year's bill included SICK PUPPIES , LACUNA COIL, EYES SET TO KILL and CILVER . Each band on this year's tour had one or more of its female members' rankings in The 25 Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock & Metal article that ran in the February-March issue of Revolver.

No stranger to adulation, but modest just the same, LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia weighs in on her ranking. She was voted #4 this year.

"I have to admit that the first time it was kind of embarrassing for me, says Scabbia on attaining Revolver magazine pin-up model status. "It's not something too deep, so it doesn't really worry me," she says about being seen as a sex symbol in rock. "I don't see it as a lack of respect or anything like that, because I know where it comes from. I know who I am. I certainly wouldn't care about a guy telling me something about it. I never got disrespected or anything like that. And plus, the only thing that really surprises me is that everybody makes a big deal of women being seen as a sexual object or being seen as sexy and hot."

"But nobody realizes that guys have been doing this forever, from MOTLEY CRUE to this new generation of bands that are showing abs or covering themselves in tattoos and taking pictures with no shirts on. So it's pretty much the same thing. Girls are looking at attractive guys. Guys are looking at women. So I don't see the big deal or the shame that should come out with it. I never go out with my boobs out. I'm not disrespectful toward other women or anybody else, so I don't see the problem as a big deal. The point is that I would never want to be a man. I'm not afraid to be a woman. Being as a woman, I accept my sensual part and accept the fact that I can be attractive toward somebody else. But I don't put this together; the fact that you can be used by other people."

"It could be a fan thing," she explains. 'Oh, I saw a picture of Cristina. Oh, my God. I would fuck her. Oh my God, I would do this and that.' I know that once I'm a public person I have to accept criticism. I have to accept a different opinion. But that doesn't touch my life. It doesn't touch my family, my friends, my boyfriend, or myself, because I could care less. You think I'm attractive? Better than being considered the ugliest chick in metal (laughs). What can I say about that? I never heard anybody complaining, like, 'Somebody thinks you're attractive.' That's actually really cool. Being in the charts and being 41 makes me extremely happy, because I can be an example for other girls that are looking at themselves in the mirror and they find themselves ugly, while I am totally showing that you can be 5'3", you can be a little overweight, you can be not perfect, you don't have, like, big, fake boobs. But still people are more interested in something more than just my face because they know I might have a little bit of a brain too. And I'm happy I'm setting this example for other people. So I'm not complaining at all."
