The Complete Interview: Hot Chick in Hard Rock Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil

When we interviewed Cristina Scabbia, co-vocalist of Lacuna Coil, for our Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue (See page 56), we discussed several topics, including the supernatural, ghosts and magick.

Unfortunately, due to space constraints, we couldn’t include most of the interview. But that’s what the Internet is for! Read what she has to say below! And make sure to catch Lacuna Coil live on the Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour with Sick Puppies, Eyes Set to Kill, and Cilver.

REVOLVER Do you believe in the supernatural?
CRISTINA SCABBIA It depends what you mean by “supernatural.” If you are talking about the energy we all have around us, yes, I definitely like to believe there is something that surrounds us. I always wondered about a lot of things about life in general, especially the unknown things. I believe it is more fun to ask question to find answers, than to believe in everything blindly.

Do you believe in the Devil? If so, what form does he, or she, take? If not, why not?
I do not believe in the Devil as a character, but I definitely believe that there is evil and bad vibes around. There are a lot of misconceptions about the imaginary of God and the Devil. This is such an immense topic that you guys would need at least an entire issue to talk about it in a more complete way.

Have you ever seen a ghost or otherwise encountered one?
Nope. Unfortunately I’ve never experienced anything like that, even if I would love to! I question if ghosts really exist–they might be weirded-out by appearing to me. I experienced something weird once though–what I saw was this round light that passed through me one night, for a second, and I felt amazing, calm and happy. I swear I was wide awake.

Do you believe in heaven and hell? If so, what form do you think they take? And which one do you think you’re going to?
Again, I don’t just blindly “believe” in anything. Let’s say I “would like” to believe there is a nice place I will go when I will not be on this earth anymore. But yet again, how can I know it for sure?

Have you had any experiences with fortune-telling, divination, curses, or other forms of magick?
Not really, I actually think 90% of it is bullshit. There are too many swindlers around, taking advantage of people’s weaknesses, preoccupations and money. There are people who developed a different type of sensitivity, sure–unfortunately all the rubbish around kind of spoils the real deal. I don’t believe in curses. I did tarot readings three times in my life, just for fun and to see what was coming and the description was always so generic that it could have been valid for anyone on earth. Some believers told me that if you don’t believe, the reader can’t read the cards properly. Yet again, if you believe they can convince you of anything they want, right?

What’s your astrological sign, and do you think it fits you and your life well?
I am not an expert in astrological signs so I don’t really know. I am a Gemini with Sagittarius as ascendant. I hear that they are connected with creativity. If so, yeah, I think I fit!
