LITA FORD Does Not Understand The Concept Of A Roast
I attended the Rock and Roll Roast of Dee Snider last month, and it was a pretty fun time. I even filed a red carpet report. It was clear to anybody who attended, that Lita Ford clearly got it the worst. Being the only female up on the stage other than Dee's wife. When it was Lita's turn to return the burns, she bombed terribly, barely being able to deliver the punchlines written to her.
Now, in a new interview, Lita discussed the roast and from the sound of it, basically had no idea what the fuck a roast entails.
Lita was recently interviewed by Metal Assault, who were very diligent in asking her about the roast and she was none too pleased.
Metal Assault: You recently did the Dee Snider roast at NAMM (see video below). What was that like?
Lita: I enjoyed being there, I enjoyed being around my friends Eddie Trunk, Scott Ian and just everyone that was involved was really nice. But I think the whole concept behind that roast is terrible. I don't agree with it, and I personally hope it goes straight into the toilet. That's my opinion. [laughs]
Metal Assault: Wow, I'm pretty surprised by that! Why do you think it's a bad thing? Is it just a distasteful way of doing it?
Lita: I don't like bagging on my friends. I don't like calling people names. It's terrible! They're turning us on ourselves. They're turning us against each other, and it's sickening. It's such a fucked up show. I really had a hard time with it. I could hardly speak. I was really very uncomfortable with it?
Metal Assault: Well, why did you do it then?
Lita: I didn't know what it was. I wasn't quite sure. I knew it was something where you make fun of somebody, but I didn't realize how extreme it was and how terrible it was. They turn you on your friends, so you're bagging on your friends! To me, that's just not what I'm about. I don't like it. It might be good for some people, but for me it was a nightmare and I will definitely never do that one again, nor I think will they have me back.
Um, Lita. You did it for the free publicity, stop lying. And, as for not wanting to bag on your friends, that's ridiculous. Everybody had a sense of humor about it but you.
