HALESTORM's LZZY HALE Says She's Given Up All Vices On Tour Except Sex

HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale has posted a lengthy blog entry online at Tumblr in which she reveals that she's become more "monk-like" on the road in order to preserve her health and her voice. Hale wrote, "In my efforts to better my stamina and career, I find myself becoming more monk-like. And I'm not talking about the holy, praying, create awesome Trappist beer type monk. I'm talking about the 'go to bed early, no drinking, no talking and no having any fun'-type monk. Luckily, sex is actually good for you on all levels (safe sex, of course), so at least I have something to hold on to! Ha!"

Hale told The Pulse Of Radio that she hit a wall earlier this year when touring with THE PRETTY RECKLESS and their singer, Taylor Momsen. "Um, she's 21 and I will never again go toe to toe with her with a bottle of whiskey, because these little 21-year-olds, they can do that [laughs] and I can't anymore," she said.

Asked if she has ever had any issues with being voted Revolver magazine's "Hottest Chick In Rock" — which some people feel encourages the objectification of women in music — Lzzy told the El Paso, Texas radio station KLAQ: "You know, I think it's a personal preference. For me, personally, I've never… obviously, I've never really had a problem with the sex-and-rock-and-roll thing; it's been going on forever, and I think that they kind of go hand in hand. So it really doesn't bother me. But, to me, it is kind of funny how, I think… What's it been? Like, three times in a row, I'm probably the only one that's fully clothed in that article. So I think that's kind of funny — that I've been on the cover of that a couple of times, and I don't necessarily have double Ds to whip out whenever I want to. So, to me, I don't know… To me, it's cool. And just for my own mind, as long as you've got something to back it up and you're actually doing some stuff with your life besides taking off your clothes for magazines, I think that's cool. I do know a lot of girls that are very, very against that. Again, I think it's a balance, and that's, you know, your personal thing."

HALESTORM's third album, "Into The Wild Life", was released on April 14. The CD follows up HALESTORM's Grammy-winning 2012 sophomore effort, "The Strange Case Of…"
