Rolling Stone Magazine
May 10 and May 24, 2001

Rolling Stone Magazine was the first publication to print information about Tori's 2001 album Strange Little Girls. The first time they did so was on May 10, 2001 (Issue #868) with an article and small photo in the "In Brief" section which reads, "TORI AMOS is currently working at her home studio in Cornwall, England, self-producing her first new album since 1999's To Venus and Back." The photo was from the "Venus" era.

Then in their May 24, 2001 issue (#869), they basically repeated the information that they had posted to their web site on April 13, 2001. Here is what they printed:

Tori Amos Finishes New Disc

For her new album, Strange Little Girls, Tori Amos says she was interested in exploring "the dilemma of opposites," specifically, what she sees as the imbalance of power between men and women in the U.S. "I think it's a very difficult time in America right now to be a heterosexual male," Amos says. "Face it, most of them want to be black, or they have to look over their shoulder at the woman who's going to take their job."

The album-Amos' sixth-was recorded in her Cornwall, England, studio with drummer Matt Chamberlain and King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew. It is due out on September 18th. She explains that much of her inspiration came from the birth of her first child, Natashya, last September. "The thing about nursing," she says, "is that you do have enforced thinking time for hours and hours and hours a day. Having a daughter has made me put my ear to the ground and hear what people are saying. This project is in response to what I'm hearing."
