The May 2004 issue of the Australian In Style Magazine includes an article/interview with Tori where she she reveals some of her favorite things.
Thanks to Huss for telling me about this. There is a nice photo of Tori included with the article. You can read the article below:
My Stylish life
Tori Amos: brilliantly eccentric American singer-songwriter
" My teapot:
I combined my favourite interests, tea drinking and design, at the Art Institute of Chicago recently. I bought a teapot printed with peonies, which I'm going to fill with King's Tea [tentea.com], the best green tea.
My glass earrings:
You know when you buy something new you can't stop wearing it? I've been doing that with a pair of pretty glass earrings I bought in a market in Hamburg recently, and have worn them on stage every night since.
Soothing my throat:
The Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas has a fantastic steam-spa. The humidity is wonderful for my voice (my most-used excuse for lounging there). I'm also never without my portable Sunbeam humidifier-- fanatical I know, but I have to look after my voice!
I play five shows a week in 10 centimetre heels, so during my downtime I love to slip on my Polo Ralph Lauren Sport X67s. I have several pairs, but my faves are the turquoise ones.
I am fanatical about books. The last book I bought was Wild Raspberries, the fabulously camp cookbook by Andy Warhol. I found it on the brilliant Myseum of Modern Art website [moma.org]
Native American art:
My Florida house is filled with Native American art. I also have a medicine bag-- Native Americans believe it is lucky to keep mementos in a specially made bag. I bought it at Prairie Edge [prairieedge.com]
I have found a great tailor called Darren Gander, who makes me the most beautiful dresses that are so unrestrictive and practical, so I can play the piano exuberantly. They are very Ali McGraw glamour meets Diane von Furstenberg prints. The arms are cut so I can be free and expressive while I perform."
The pictures are one of Tori, her blue sneakers, the teapot, the earrings, the books, the medicine bag, a dress of hers and a picture of the spa she mentions.
