Blabbermouth is reporting that Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale has been named "The Hottest Chick in Hard Rock." Hale topped Revolver magazine's annual poll, beating Evanescence's Amy Lee and Pretty Reckless front woman Taylor Momsen to the top spot.
Hale offered the following comments on the survey:
"My view of it really is to make sure that you're good at what you do, and so that when people actually want to look beyond the centerfold [laughs, that you're actually good and you have something to back it up," she says. "I think that most of us are really trying to push the envelope and, you know, make sure that we're musicians first and that the sex is just kind of the icing on the cake."

Speaking to RockSource 360 back in July, Hale revealed some of the challenges involved in being a woman in rock:
"I think a lot of people don't realize the guts it takes to be a woman in rock... We have to carve out our own path, and make our own rules, because there are none. We have to go against everything society has told us we should be, embrace our power.... AND still hold on to our femininity somehow! By far my favorite role model is Pat Benatar."
Halestorm are currently on tour with Evanescene in support of their new album "The Strange Case Of...", which came out in April.
