Scott Ian: 'Call Me When King Diamond Is Elected Pope, Until Then, Who Gives A F--k'
Yesterday's white smoke from the chimney above the Sistine Chapel in Vatican marked the official election of the new pope. As the successor of recently retired Benedict XVI, Pope Francis I was introduced as the new papal leader. Reactions from all around the globe were almost instant, with various rock and metal musicians also giving their own opinions. Apart from Ozzy Osbourne connecting the Vatican's white smoke with Black Sabbath track "Sweet Leaf", Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has posted quite an eye-catching tweet via his official Twitter page. And it seems that he doesn't care too much about the whole situation, unless King Diamond is involved that is. "Call me when King Diamond is elected Pope. Until then, #WhoGivesASh-tWhoGivesAF--k", said Ian. The guitarist obviously isn't afraid to state his mind, and his recent quotes regarding the music industry can only confirm it. "I really don't give a s--t about the industry... I can only hope that the whole industry collapses and has to start over, or figure out something else." Another thing Ian isn't too fond of is the dubstep music, which he considers a "little phase of crap which will be gone in the next 18 months". "I thought dubstep was reggae when I first heard that genre description. I was like, Wow, reggae's making a big comeback, huh? And then someone played me some dubstep thing. And I was like, 'What the f--k is this?' So no. I'm not a fan of that name of music. [Laughs.] Nor am I a fan of DJs or any of that stuff."
