Tori Amos’ Doll Posse Is Pissed At Bush

Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 6April07

Tori Amos stands up against President Bush with her new album, American Doll Posse. in a conversation with the singer that is reported by VH1 news, she states :

“If for one minute the generation who is about old enough and eligible to vote thinks this is about one person, then we’re all very foolish,” Amos said. “We need to wake up and realize that just because we think we’re in a democracy, there is a little bit of a seduction there. They’re not overtly burning books and they’re not doing this and that, but they’re doing exactly what they want to do, and we’re distracted. It’s funny — they’re not burning books, they’re just throwing more information at us, and drowning us in it. You have to be able to think for yourself and not get manipulated.”

pretty astute perspective and statement from an influential lady. the album sounds incredibly interesting – apparently she called upon different Greek goddesses to help her to develop the four archetypes that Amos uses to express the different aspects of the album : Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, Persephone, the emotional and idealistic side, Athena, the warrior woman, and Aphrodite the sensual side of the artist. in the photo, you can see the archetypes, from left to right they are : Santa, Clyde, Isabel, Tori, and Pip.

Amos also stated, in reference to the political resistance expressed in the album, “The way to really combat the right wing is to not be subservient to them on any level, particularly when it comes to ideology,” she continued. “Therefore, you better offer up another ideology that can combat theirs…”
