If you’re overanxious to kiss the miserable year that was 2013 goodbye because it was a shittier than a three-day-old diaper, and you’re raring for the empty promise of a new year, know this: You’re not alone.
My 2013 was a fucking nightmare. In fact, every year’s pretty much been shit since 2008. I’m hoping 2014 treats me better.
Lacuna Coil frontwoman Cristina Scabbia says she, too, had a shit 2013.
“I surely hope it has been better for you all… but 2013 hasn’t exactly been a piece of cake for me. Bad moments of sadness, melancholy, lack of strength and sleep, moments when I thought I was really going to give up… not artistically, but as a person. Life can be a bitch sometimes.”
It can be. It can even be a bastard. But 2014 will be better, right? Cristina says she’s trying to stay positive.
“I always try to see the good coming out of it all, and what I found out is that not only I realized I have an amazing family tight as an army and a loving boyfriend who made me smile through the roughness… but I have priceless friends that supported me ALL the way through the bad moments, without even barely thinking about the so overrated ‘rockstar status’ I am not proud of.
“And I love them all back to death, I mean it. This is what life really should be: the self-awareness of the fact that at the end of the day is not what we have done in our lives, but who we shared everything with. I also shared my voice, our music, a piece of my life with you all, so feel part of the family too.
“Here’s to a great 2014. May the new year make all your dreams come true, give you all the happiness you guys deserve and give you the strength to realize you can get wherever you want if you really want to. Smile, smile a lot and let others smile.”
See? And you thought smoking hot chicks had it easy, that they coasted through life carefree. Not so, smarty pants.
