The Complete Interview: Hot Chick in Hard Rock Elize Ryd of Amaranthe

When we interviewed Elize Ryd, vocalist for Amaranthe, for our Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue (See page 50), we discussed several topics, including their wildest fans, gifts and encounters.

Unfortunately, due to space constraints, we couldn’t include all of the interview. But that’s what the Internet is for! Read what she has to say below!

REVOLVER How do you deal with creepy fans or stalkers?
ELIZE RYD Hmm. It's a tough one, but I guess I don't see anyone as creepy or stalking. People are different and they just show their dedication in different ways. If someone is acting, or like giving me strange gifts--which have happened--at least it gives me an interesting story to tell to my family and friend. So in the end, even the bad experiences brings something good in the end.

What's the coolest gift you've gotten from a fan?
I've gotten so many awesome gifts--like a handmade knife from Japan, a clothing hanger with my signature in steel, really nice special designed jewelery, shoes, and touching personal letters.

Have you ever been in a dangerous situation with or from a fan?
No. I'm very selective when it comes to these things. I might be wild but I'm very careful when I'm on the road to make sure I don't end up in situations that can be dangerous. I must say that we have the cutest fans, so I'm never scared when I'm around them.

Have you ever fangirled over anyone?
I think Freddie Mercury from Queen was the hottest. I love his teeth.

What's the wildest thing you've done that almost got you in trouble with the law?
I accidentally caused trouble and got someone else arrested. My friend was yelling at the staff of a 7-11 because they didn't allow me to sit down on their chair. I really needed to rest my feet after a long night at the club. That was an interesting night.
