Mindless Self Indulgence's Lyn-Z Tired of Being Labeled 'Gerard's Wife'
"It's fucked up and totally offensive that my name has totally disappeared and I am now referred to as 'Mrs. Gerard Way,' " Lyn-Z – who married Way on September 3, 2007, following the final date of the Projkect Revolution tour – told Kerrang! It's fucked up that little kids want to come to my show to see Gerard standing at the side of the stage. And I don't want to have anything to do with it."
Lyn-Z, who has been playing with Mindless Self Indulgence since 2001, also said she wants young girls to be inspired and motivated by what she does. Music shouldn't just be a "man's world" after all, right?
"One of the biggest reasons that I do what I do, is for other women and for other girls, then suddenly, when I got married, that was taken away from me. I'm suddenly 'wife of blah blah blah.' I think it sends such a bad message to girls because it wipes out all the hard work that I did. He [Way] doesn't want that for me either. The questions are neverending, and it's disgusting."
There might be a happy ending to this eye-opening story, though, as Lyn-Z added: "I get a lot of positive reactions, too — people saying that I have inspired them and that feels good. If that stuff wasn't in place, I'd probably throw it all away."
