Inger Lorre – photos and quotes

Inger Lorre

“I write about darkness and death. So many people close to me have died by suicide. Depression, anger, desperation have been a big part of my life. I write about what I know best. When I was writing I was exorcising demons. Unfortunately, I didn’t get rid of all of them.”Inger Lorre

“I really did those naaasssstttyyyy things,” purrs Inger Lorre, the lead singer of the Nymphs, with a wicked gleam in her eye.

Because of those “nasty things,” Lorre has been nicknamed the Gross-Out Queen. In one widely reported incident, the 25-year-old ex-fashion model protested the reassignment of their record producer to Guns N’ Roses sessions by urinating on the desk of Geffen Records executive Tom Zutaut.

“I did it because I was angry,” she says now. “I’d do it again.”

Then there’s the video for “Sad and Damned,” a single from the L.A. band’s debut allbum of tormented, brooding punk-metal songs. After drinking from a cup, Lorre is shown savoring a mouthful of maggots.

“They were clean, grown in a lab,” said Lorre…”They didn’t come from rotting meat or anything like that. I did it on a dare. Don’t dare me to do anything because I’m liable to do it.”
