    Video From Graham Norton

    Saturday, May 12, 2007 | 03:17 UTC | Posted by Violet | Video

    Frank put up this beautiful video capture of Tori’s performance of “Bouncing Off Clouds” from Graham Norton for us. (Thanks, Frank!)

    Tori looks jaw-droppingly stunning here. “Dear Karen Binns: Do that more!”

    He also uploaded the entire show in two parts, but for some reason the second bit didn’t come through. Here’s Part One. We’ll add the second half when it comes in.

    Plus, a clip from the extended version of the show. (Thanks for telling us about that, Andrew.)


    Tori Makes Rare Promotional Appearance In Oz

    Thursday, May 10, 2007 | 21:34 UTC | Posted by Violet | Minutiae,Toriphiles

    Simon sent these photos of Tori making a rare in-store appearance in Sydney, Australia. Okay, don’t get too excited yet. It’s not really Tori. But somebody spent a lot of time on this. This gets an “A” for effort. (Or “A” for affort. Something like that.) This is loads better than the promotion most stores would bother to do, if any at all.

    Note the chicken. Niiiiiiiice!


    Graham Norton Taping Details

    Thursday, May 10, 2007 | 20:35 UTC | Posted by Violet | TV/Radio/Web

    Alison attended the taping of the Graham Norton show on Wednesday. Alison says, “Tori came out in a one shoulder very sparkly, cute dress with the red wig on. She sat with Graham and Gérard Depardieu and talked.”

    The show gets edited down for TV, but this is what was discussed:

    • the problems of Paris and Britney (Tori thinks Paris deserved it, but feels bad for Britney and her hair)
    • cooking (Tori can’t, Mark does the cooking)
    • her cornflake girl commercial (they showed it, and she explained she needed the $12,000)
    • how she used to play for all the politicians in Washington (and knew their mistresses)
    • the posse, how ADP took 2 years to make, and how the girls only come out for shows

    This show’s gonna be aired in the UK in about 25 minutes (15-minute extended time repeat tomorrow night sorry, SUNDAY night), so what are you doing reading this? Go get some popcorn and turn it on!

    Tori Article In MetroLife (May 1, 2007)

    Thursday, May 10, 2007 | 20:24 UTC | Posted by Violet | Articles

    There’s almost an alternate reality in the States, where you can be very removed from what’s happening in the rest of the world.

    The following article appeared in the May 1, 2007 edition of MetroLife, wherein Tori discusses politics (surprise!), American Girl dolls, rock gods, and of course the Posse. Thanks to Sara, Emma + Andy, and Barbara for providing the various pieces.

    Tori Squeaks In On "Moms Who Rock" List

    Thursday, May 10, 2007 | 13:09 UTC | Posted by Violet | Minutiae

    Tori came in at #30 (out of 30) on MSN’s Moms Who Rock list.

    Outspoken and artistically idiosyncratic, Tori Amos has left behind a trail of beautiful music and outrageous pull-quotes to make her daughter Natashya Lorien Hawley (b. 2000) blush.

    Thanks, NeverHer and Marie!

    Tori Sa-Sa-Sacrifices Higher UK Chart Rank

    Thursday, May 10, 2007 | 07:34 UTC | Posted by Violet | Releases


    We’ve had a lot of people asking so we thought we would take the opportunity to clarify something. According to the UK Chart Regulations, the limited edition special package of American Doll Posse has been disqualified from the UK Charts. Apparently offering the fans 5 postcards is considered too much of a gift, and sales of the CD are ineligible. Tori made the decision not to compromise the packaging so the UK fans would receive the same presentation as the rest of the world. We appreciate your interest and concern for the situation.

    “Too much of a gift”? The sales of all the limited edition copies in the UK aren’t going to be counted because of what basically amounts to some extra album artwork? That seems pretty ridiculous to us. Come on, UK chart rulemaking people, these are copies of the ALBUM and they were SOLD. Count them, ferchrissakes.

    Update: for interest, under the very short section on “Permitted Free Gifts,” the official UK chart rules state:

    “Cards” to a maximum of 4. Card(s) must be contained within the format packaging and be 2 sided with no folds. Card(s) maybe printed on both sides. Maximum card size is dictated by the dimensions of the packaging they are to be contained within.

    ( Randy tells us they disqualified Beck’s last album too, because of stickers. Our jaws are on the floor.)

    Whomever came up with those rules needs to get to a proctologist immediately. The Undented Doctor diagnoses severe anal retentiveness in need of urgent emergency treatment.

    Tori Amos/Patrick Wolf Feature in The Advocate

    Wednesday, May 09, 2007 | 22:17 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles

    Blonds are flighty, brunets are sensible, and redheads strong-willed and crazy. Or so stereotypes would have us believe. Neither Tori Amos nor Patrick Wolf puts much stock in conventional attitudes, yet each has carved out a niche as distinctive as their carrot-topped counterparts Aphrodite, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Peppermint Patty.

    Dane sent us a scan of this article, called “Scarlet Fever,” from the May 8, 2007 issue of The Advocate. While it manages to get several things incorrect, it’s still pretty fun. Almost as fun as being a redhead is.


    Tori's "When You Were 17" Interview

    Wednesday, May 09, 2007 | 19:32 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles

    Dear 17-year-old self,

    I know you spend a lot of your time wishing to be older. You will be, trust me. The focused need to achieve will serve you well. However, being able to laugh could also serve you. You won’t stop making mistakes. There is no shame in an honest mistake. Not everyone is deserving of friendship. So why extend a hand of friendship to someone who is not prepared to uphold their end of the bargain? It’s better to be alone with your piano than stuck with a so-called friend who undermines you when they can get away with it. Friendship cannot be a one-way relationship. As for boyfriends? Well, what you find attractive now will bore you once you discover the definition of what a “bad boy” truly is. Respecting women and consequently not needing to verbally abuse women to feel powerful, these are truly the sexy bad boys. You will marry one.



    P.S. Don’t cut your hair for the “Just Right” commercial.

    Franco sent us this amusing and informative interview Tori did with Seventeen in which she reflects on her teenage years. Who knew she was allergic to nuts?

    Megastar ADP Review

    Wednesday, May 09, 2007 | 18:38 UTC | Posted by Beth | Reviews

    Yes, it might have sold more if she’d cut back, but don’t let the length put you off. Amos still has the ability to inspire and move, and just like Bjork, who releases Volta next week, she remains one of the most distinctive female artists in music today.

    Djimi sent us this review of American Doll Posse from Megastar:
