Tori Amos by Cindy Palmano for Boys for Pele. 1996.

Photograph taken in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana.

I have no regrets about breastfeeding a piglet. The image appeared on the back cover of my 1996 album Boys for Pele. It caused a sensation in the U.S., where people made associations with Mother Mary and the Christ Child. It took a while to get that photograph right – maybe 45 minutes. That’s a long time to be holding a piglet. I put it on a Christmas card and sent it to my father – he was not a fan.

"It’s not an album of easily digestible pop songs and it requires repeated listens to “get.” But once you do… you get it hard."

So true! Read the rest of the praising at Soundwaves.

"I wrote this record [Boys for Pele] because I was trying to fill the void any way I could," she says, tears in her eyes. "After nothing worked - men, food, incredible Chardonnay, shoes - there was no anchor to hold on to, the old ways didn’t work any more. I realized I’d suppressed a lot of sides to myself to be loved and understood by men. I didn’t want to play seductive little girl or ballbuster any more. With this record I played all those roles until I got to my heart. To find your fire as man or woman you have to take your torch and go to the shadows." -Tori Amos

in the glories of the 80’s
you said, ‘I’m not afraid to die’
I said I don’t find that remotely funny
even on this space cake high

and then when it all seemed clear
just then you go and disappear

silicone party barbies to the left and
Joan of Arcs to the right
no one feeling insecure we were
all gorge and famous in our last lives
