Meat Loaf gave a bizarre interview to Britain's Daily Mail in which the singer shared his opinion on young activist Greta Thunberg, boasted about his libido as a young man, and talked frankly about his chronic pain issues. Regarding the topic of global warming, Meat said, "I feel for that Greta. She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn't. She hasn't done anything wrong but she's been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true."

Meat also touched upon his sexuality as a teen, offering up, "Most of my songs are. . . well, true. They are story songs and I am really good at stories. . . I am a sex god, dear. I can't use bad language but people would ask me, 'How can a fat mother****** like you go out with all these good looking girls?' I said, 'Because I am not going out thinking about what you are thinking about.' These days men don't open the doors, they don't do anything right. Truthfully, all they go out for is to get laid. I've never done that. It's not my first option; never has been -- and that's why I've gone out with all these good looking women."

Meat Loaf spoke about a "threeway" he had as a teen, making out with two girls -- Cindy and Judy: "Oh yeah, that was the first double I had. We were making out in the parking lot in my mother's car."

When asked about his health after suffering from a number of falls and broken bones, Meat said, "I feel a lot better than I did. I had the last surgery in 2016 and the first in 2015. With the first one, the screw came out and so they put in these basket type things. . . three of them. Within four weeks, two of those baskets had come out. My wife told me that I was in so much pain but I couldn't really remember it. That's how bad it was."

Meat Loaf is currently promoting the UK Italian restaurant chain Frankie & Benny's, which is advertising a line of vegan dishes -- with Meat appearing in one clip where the employees attempt to convince him to change his name to "Veg Loaf."

Meat Loaf told us that he's come to accept the fact that no matter what road he takes creatively, the critics will be there waiting to bash him and principle songwriter Jim Steinman: "Oh no, they dismiss me. (Laughs) My favorite thing about some of these critics -- y'know what Billy Joel said, 'Don't ever fight anybody that buys ink by the barrel' -- What's really interesting is when Jim (Steinman) and I put out Bat Out Of Hell, it got some of the worst review ever. And then Bat II came out and that wasn't critically well received. But I put out Hang Cool Teddy Bear, and the critics who didn't like anything that I did with Jim Steinman are going, 'Well this is certainly not Jim Steinman."
