Meat Loaf speaks to the crowd at the launch for Jim Steinman's 'Bat Out of Hell The Musical' at the London Coliseum on St Martin's Lane on Nov. 3, 2016 in London. 

Among the topics in Meat Loaf's recent interview with Daily Mail are his self-proclaimed "sex god" status, back surgeries, his favorite shows...and Greta Thunberg's brainwashing.

“I feel for that Greta,” he told the publication. “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.”

The teenage climate activist has taken the world by storm in 2019, known for her straightforward public speaking at political assemblies and public appearances, urging immediate action to end the climate crisis. She has upset President Donald Trump a number of times, which he has expressed on Twitter

Meat Loaf has been a friend of Trump's, working with the President on The Apprentice back in 2010.
