Tori Amos on Something for the Weekend
Posted on May 24, 2009 by pacificyorkshirebird
Good Afternoon Ladies,
Part of my Sunday ritual usually includes watching Something for the Weekend on BBC2. This morning, Tori Amos was a guest on the show. She was my teenage hero in the 90′s (along with Sarah McLachlan) but I had no idea I would connect with her again in my late 20′s.
She married a British man and they, along with their daughter, split their time between Cornwall and East Coast USA. She gave a fantastic interview on the show – mostly about being an American in Britain and she has clearly settled amongst those who strive to hold on to their “Americaness” and even referred to herself as a guest in Britain. Her new single is even about a American woman who moves to London and loses too much of herself trying to fit in. Sound familiar?
You can see the interview here:
And, watch out for her new video on youtube, called “Welcome to England”. I’ll post a link when I find it.
