The Guardian took Tori Amos record shopping at Rough Trade’s New York store. Amos chose music from artists including The Doors and Joni Mitchell, but also revealed how she was inspired by Public Enemy while writing one album.
This is from Süddeutsche Magazin - they sometimes ask their interviewees to answer questions wordlessly. Here’s Tori’s answers to the following questions:
01) In what posture do you compose? 02) Where do you like singing best of all? 03) Your husband was in charge of recording your new album. How did you impose your will on him? 04) What’s your 13 year old daughter’s most frequent facial expression, currently? 05) Some native populations believe that a person’s soul is in their hair. What do you have to say about that? 06) You’re crazy for high heels. How tall should they at least be? 07) You once said that you’d enjoy being a man for a day. What’s the first thing you would do? 08) You were kicked out of the conservatory. Any idea why? 09) Your grandfather was a Cherokee. What did he teach you? 10) How does your voice really sound when you sing?
