Meat Loaf has revealed the animated woman on the cover of his new album HANG COOL TEDDY BEAR was inspired by former Paramount Studio boss Sherry Lansing.
The rocker commissioned artist Julie Bell to create the artwork and gave her one simple idea - Lansing as a god.
Meat Loaf, who has turned his attention to movie and TV roles in recent years, tells Hustler magazine, "I saw this painting she (Bell) did called The Rose, which is an impressionist setting with a photorealistic woman sitting on some fantasy-looking thing. I told her I wanted the same thing with old school Hollywood as the backdrop... with this woman, based on Sherry Lansing, as the symbol of woman as God."
Bell is the artist who was commissioned to create the album artwork for Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell 3.
