Sex Not Important For Strapping Young Lad Frontman

Newt Briggs of the Las Vegas Mercury caught up with Canadian metalmonger Devin Townsend and quizzed him on why he’d name his new group Strapping Young Lad, which he argued “sounds like a gay Irish porno film.” Townsend responded, “In retrospect, I guess I could see that. The thing is, I’m equally disgusted by both men and women. Personally, I’m heterosexual because I’m with my wife and I love her, but sex just isn’t important enough to me to give it a whole lot of thought. Human beings are gross.

Devin Townsend Is A Huge Christina Aguilera Fan

Strapping Young Lad’s outlandish frontman Devin Townsend reveals his favorite new album is Christina Aguilera’s ‘Stripped’. “She’s fu**ing great. And man, I don’t care what anybody says,” Townsend tells Chris Harris of the Hartford Advocate. “First of all, that music video, it’s not a sex video. She doesn’t do anything, man — anything. She fu**ing commands the camera, she can dance, and she can fu**ing sing any of those other chicks under the table.” He added, “Not only that, but, she’s like, ‘Britney, You’re going to show some belly? OK. Not only am I going to sing you under the table, I’m going to show off my entire fu**ing body.’ I think that’s rad.”
