  1. 1

    Is it more difficult to write, produce, or even play music when you are content in your life with your daughter, husband, life in England, etc? Or does it pour out more easily when you feel the more ugly side of humanity– see: Crucify, Blood Roses, Spark, Yo George?

    (PS: Perez, so jealous of the interview! I'm a super fan, too!)



  2. 2

    I want to know more about the song "Shattering Sea" from her upcoming album!!!!!!



  3. 3

    I am curious to know what Tori is listening to, reading, and/or watching these days.

    Also,please thank her for all of her amazing music. I grew up listening to Tori, and her albums were like the older sister I always wanted. At the time I didn't realize how much guidance they provided, but as a young in her 30s, I can see how much strength and insight I drew from her music. So, thank you Tori.



  4. 4

    Over the course of her career, what has Tori learned most of the business and what advice may she give for others trying to get in the business? :)



  5. 5

    Personally, I want to know if Tori could collaborate with anyone in the world, who would it be? I'm a super fan also and grew up listening to her (as my mother is just as much of a super fan as I am). SOOOOOOO JEALOUS YOU GET TO MEET TORI!



  6. 6

    I want to know why if Tori is visited by a muse, she has never been visited by a muse that wants her to tell a story that is good enough to dance to? She has only once come out with a song that made it to the dancefloor and it was a remix. Will we ever see tori step out of her demeter-esque status and step back into a Pip or Santa like mood that could give all the young pop stars out there a run for their money?



  7. 7

    On the last Tour, You skipped your birth state of North Carolina. Will you come back next time? Your tarheel fans miss you!



  8. 8

    I'd like to know what shoe designers/brands are her favorites these days.



  9. 9

    Ask her; What do you think of Lady Gaga now? and Who are some current artists she would like to work with today?



  10. 10

    I know she has described this new album as a 21st Century Song Cycle, and a clear concept album. I want to know if she thinks that many of her albums in the last 10 years have been concept albums, why that is and what the appeal about a concept album is.

    I also want to know whatever details we can get about The Light Princess.

    Also, tell her to come back to Lawrence, Kansas. We love her here.



  11. 11

    Why did she screw up her face????? Her voice is incredible..but she doesn't look real anymore!!!!



  12. 12

    Ask her about The Light Princess! When is it coming to the states?



  13. 13

    will she ever perform in asia (particularly in indonesia) after almost 30 years, 12 albums, many, many singles and tour dates – and one daughter? we are expecting her so badly.



  14. 14

    Is the 2nd half of the new song "Star Whisperer" really the infamous "Goodbye Girls Electric Band", that was only played once at the sound check of your concert in Bonn during The Beekeeper tour?



  15. 15

    does she really bedazzle her va-ja-ja?



  16. 16

    I would want to know what HER top 3 favorite Tori songs are. Or even her favorite Tori Album thus far.



  17. 17

    Dearest Tori: What does the NOH tour sound like? Is the performance completely from the new album, or is your entire repertoire included? Peppermints and Chamomile, Karissa.

  18. DVDV says – reply to this

    Tori- I am really enjoying the new album- I had really enjoyed following you as you've grown as an artist. Night of Hunters is an album that really required me to dive deep into what you might be trying to accomplish. I really feel that this is the most raw yet manicured work that you have put out. I am looking forward to the upcoming tour- my question is- Since this album was meant to be played in sequence, will you be performing it in sequence on the tour? I have a feeling you are not going to give this away just yet!

  19. 19

    How do you think you have changed from the beginning of your career to now, both personally and artistically?



  20. 20

    Will there be any secret time/T & BÖ/Lizard Lounge this year? (for those who don't know, its only T and her piano)



  21. 21

    Tori Amos puts on the MOST AMAZING live performances! She does not not need to become a "Pop Princess" or anything of the like…Perform with Lady GaGa? Give me a break! She would NEVER lower herself…



  22. 22

    Perez; PLEASE ask Tori if she'll be stopping by Australia for the Night of Hunters Tour.
    Her Australian fans miss her! And if not for Night of Hunters, when will she be returning?

    Tori mentioned recently, that for the 20th anniversary of Little Earthquakes, next year, she will be recreating her classic tracks off the album, as well as songs from other albums. Can we expect the songs she performed recently with the Metropole Orchestra, or will she be throwing in some surprises?

    Also, was it a difficult task creating lyrics for the classical pieces?

    My personal favourite off the new record, is Star Whisperer. Does Tori have a favourite?



  23. 23

    ALSO, when can we expect the American Doll Posse Tour DVD, which was filmed over three nights at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, 2007? She has stated recently it will be coming out, but when can we expect it? Are they still working on it, or has it been lost?
    The tour was such a highlight of her career as the structure was so unique, and Tori looked fierce as all the 'dolls'!



  24. 24

    Have she ever taken some time to know about popular fansites dedicated to her from all kind of countries? There are pages not only from North America or Europe, as you can find people from Brazil and Japan dedicating time to Tori…



  25. 25

    The song Carry seems to be dedicated to somebody who has passed away… Does this make sense for this record?



  26. 26

    I am writing a memoir couched in novel form. I want to use Tori quotes from songs at the beginning of each chapter. How can I get permission to do this?

    Here is an example: "I" get kicked out of my bookclub because "I" had an addiction to pain killers after I was rear-ended by a bus…but no one in the book club knew. Once "I" got clean, no one liked me anymore and they kicked me out. So the song line I would like to use to start that particular chapter is "I think it's perfectly clear, we're in the wrong band". The book has been described as "hilarious" "heartbreaking" "the best book I read this year" "an amazing effort from a first-time author". But it can never be finished, completely, without those song quotes (we are in the editing phase right now).

    I think Tori wold dig my book, and of course, "I" go to her concerts. My publisher told me it's practically impossible to get an artist's permission, but Jake Brown did… How can I?

    Have you shared your rape story with your daughter? if not, is it something you have given thought to doing and how you will address it? If you have told her, how did she react and what did you tell her was the main lesson you wanted her to walk away with?



  28. 28

    Tori! I've seen multiple shows from all your tours for the last fifteen years, and they all either begin or end in Florida - except this upcoming tour! :( Why have you forsaken the Sunshine State this time?



  29. 29

    Are you considering making a few shows in the major capital cities of LatinAmerica (i.e. Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, etc…) ?
    How do you feel about all those ears with feet from these countries who are unable to follow you around as much as they want. Your fans in NorthAmerica and Europe have always been blessed and able to follow you throughout all tours but these fans in LatinAmerica are not able to do so. Will they ever get a chance to see you play live in SouthAmerica?



  30. 30

    Tori, was the film or the book by the same name the main inspiration for this album, or was it used to create a context for something else that inspired you? If it was the latter, what was that inspiration? . . . Also, was it one of the dolls (perhaps Isabel) that convinced you to create the Diana Camera package?



  31. 31

    First… Will you ever release the ADP DVD? Second… what do you do with your fan art that is given to you? Finally… You have so many fanatics. Why do you always give front row to the same people? Love you Tori.



  32. 32

    Two Questions:

    1. Is she releasing any official bootlegs of this tour?
    2. Who is Lucy on "Edge of the Moon"? From her older songs, the primitive found in 1974, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (the Beatles?), Lucy from Charlie Brown or Lucille Ball?



  33. 33

    Night of Hunters is a beautiful recording as are all of your recordings. I have tickets to both L.A. shows, very excited. Apollon Musagete will be fantastic backing your eloquent playing and vocals; however, when will you tour with Matt and Jon again? The 3 of you create something no other band can match. It's phenomenal.
    p.s. - Thank you for being an amazing producer. No one ever mentions that. I hope The Light Princess makes it to the States.

    I'd be interested to hear Tori's thoughts on the choices of composers to base this album around. Since there's always a strong sense of a female perspective in her work, and at times critiques of male-dominated culture, why the canon of great male composers and not, say, some Clara Schumann in the mix as well? I love the composers she did use too, don't get me wrong, their music is a thrill to play and to listen to. But with this project it seems Tori is acting in a sense as a mediator between the classical world and popular culture, presenting classical music to people who may not be as familiar. So yeah, just wondering the reasons behind this approach!
    (& hoping to make it to a show, as a violinist i've been hoping for a tour with strings for years!)



  35. 35

    I hope this interview is by phone or e-mail. You aren't good enough to clean her boots, much less be in the same room, speaking to her. Why the hell she is granting an evil, hateful queen like you an interview is way beyond me. She is the antithesis of everything that you stand for–she's kind, loving, an honest, open soul, and a woman who knows how vital following one's own personal path is, WITHOUT UNWELCOME INTERFERENCE FROM OTHERS.
    Keep a civil tongue in your head while you're speaking to her, you toad, or I will curse you until the end of your miserable stinking life.



  36. 36

    i would like to know if tori still maintains a friendship with the photographer Cindy Palmano who created tori's early and award winning music videos and artwork from little earthquakes.. she so perfectly captured the feel of tori's early work.



  37. 37

    Woman, do you EVER wear flats!?!



  38. 38

    Oh, followup question - have you ever broken a heel at the piano?
