Otep Struggles Being Only Woman On Ozzfest Lineup
Jason Bracelin of the Cleveland Scene spoke with Otep, frontwoman of the band bearing her name, on how she’s struggling being the only woman performing on the current Ozzfest tour. “It’s like being a diaper attached to the very active ass of a very gluttonous baby,” she says. As for the struggle for respect women have on the tour, Otep sighed, “Here I am, defending myself as a woman and an artist, and I look out at the crowd as soon our set’s over, and there’s some girl on top of someone’s shoulders, and she’s flashing the guys. Sometimes, it’s almost like I’m fighting a losing battle.” Clevescene.com has since removed the article.
