Fans have been inquiring whether legendary artist Meat Loaf got vaccinated before he died just a few hours after it was revealed that he had died.
We can’t say for sure if the 74-year-old musician got vaccinated or not, but insiders say he was “outspoken against Covid.”
According to TMZ, he said that he has been “ribbing individuals in Australia about vaccination obligations recently.”
Meat Loaf allegedly died at the age of 74 after getting Covid.
He rose to popularity with his strong, wide-ranging voice and had a spectacular career spanning six decades, having been born Marvin Lee Aday in Texas.
According to TMZ, the musician had to postpone a business dinner for a new TV show he was supposed to be a part of earlier this week after contracting Covid.
It’s unknown if Meat Loaf got vaccinated, but only months before his death, he said of Covid, “If I die, I die – I’m not going to be controlled.”
He also called face masks a “nuisance” in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published in August.
“I’m sorry, I understood stopping life for a little while, but they cannot continue to stop life because of politics,” he told the outlet.
“And right now they’re stopping because of politics. And on CNN last night, it finally came out that the masks we’re all wearing are useless. But I’ve known that for six months.
“They don’t do anything. They don’t stop you from getting Covid. They’re just a nuisance and make your nose itch and make it so you can’t breathe.”
Following that, the interviewer stated: “”Everyone is controlling us,” he said, “and I know it.” But that is not the case with me. If I die, I will die, but I will not be dominated.”
He had previously branded Covid as well “”Hello everyone, nothing happening on at all,” he stated in a post dated October 2020. That’s inconvenient. Covid is a pain to deal with. Things are open and flourishing where I live. Lockdown has been imposed on the entertainment world’s major centres. WHY?”
However, he had previously asked his supporters to “be thoughtful and considerate,” warning that “everyone is at risk” from the illness.
He stated that he will be posting in March 2020: “To combat the spread of this fatal illness, we must all work together. So, please be aware of how to protect yourself and others.”
The rock superstar was ready to begin filming a dating show called I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That), which will run on ITV.
Meat Loaf said in his heartbreaking final Facebook post that he was “hoping” the TV program will premiere in March.
But, according to a tragic memorial on the actor’s official Facebook page, he died on Thursday night with his wife Deborah Gillespie by his side.
The statement reads: “Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side.
“Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him throughout the last 24 hours.
“His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 Million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including Fight Club, Focus, Rocky Horror Picture Show and Wayne’s World. Bat Out of Hell remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.
“We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man.
“We thank you for your understanding of our need for privacy at this time. From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking!”
The rock veteran had been plagued with health issues and rumours that he was dying ever since he collapsed onstage in June 2016 and had appeared in a number of interviews with slurred speech, with even Katie Price telling him she thought he had died.
He was forced to deny he’d passed away.
But he did have back surgery nearly two months prior to remove a cyst on his back – and he explained what was going on.
“Listen, I am not dying. After three months of therapy I will be fine. I am sick of talking about it. I don’t want to talk about it from now on,” he said.
“And anyone else who asks me the question, I’m not going to respond to it.”
In 2012, Meat Loaf claimed dying on stage would be the “best thing” that could happen to him.
“I’ll die for ya,” he said in an interview with Tinnitist.
“I literally will die for an audience. The best thing that could ever happen to me is that I die onstage.
“Because then I’m dying doing what I love. I hate to cut us off but I gotta go.”
Meat Loaf was last pictured on stage on March 27 last year when he performed with country artist John Rich at Redneck Riviera in Nashville.
The singer’s cause of death has not yet been revealed.
The rock star was born Marvin Lee Aday in Dallas, Texas, in 1947, forming his first band Meat Loaf Soul in the 1960s and legally changing his name to Michael Lee Aday.
He had the nickname Meat Loaf since he was a child and kept it when he went on stage.
In 2016 he told Oprah he was “born bright red” and his father called him Meat because he “looked like nine and a half pounds of ground chuck.”
The second part reportedly came when he was 13 and accidentally stepped on his sports coach, who yelled: “Get off my foot, you hunk of meat loaf!”
