Oh, happy day!
In a new interview with Out magazine, Love of My Life Tori Amos reveals that she is “in the trenches” of creating a musical, which will hopefully open at the British National Theater in late 2009 or early 2010.
Looks like I’m going to London, kids!!!
The whole interview is definitely worth a read if you’re a Tori fan. She talks about her father, and her daughter (who’s 7 years old now! Wow!). Here’s what she has to say when the interviewer asks her if she’s explained to her daughter, Natasha, about the gay men who are some of her biggest fans:
Sheâ€™s very aware that some boys stay with boys forever and marry them. And some girls stay with girls and marry them. And itâ€™s the way it is. But the thing about Tash is that she and Granddaddy Eddie see religion very, very differently. She believes that God from the Bible is not Jesusâ€™ father. She feels that God is — Iâ€™ll use the word â€œunderachiever.â€œ She says things like â€œHe likes war. Heâ€™s not for womanâ€™s rights.â€ So in her mind God of the Bible is more like George W. Bush. Thatâ€™s how she sees it. And that — to her — is not Jesusâ€™ father. And this is where their relationship goes off into different tangents. Tashâ€™s religion would be considered something that is not Western.
Oh, how I love me some Tori!
