According to the Idaho Statesman, METALLICA has accepted the #MetallicaDiet Challenge from radio personality Big J, inciting the overweight host to lose at least 100 pounds before they play Boise’s Taco Bell Arena on November 28.
If Mr. J succeeds, METALLICA will do an interview with him. The host currently weighs 424 pounds and has chronicled his battles with the scale on social media.
Big J told Blabbermouth: “See, I need to lose a crap ton of weight, so I thought I would ask METALLICA for some incentive.”
Lars Ulrich said: “Big J, we wish you the very best of luck. Become … a smaller J.”
