Tori Amos Finds Michele Bachmann’s Views “Completely Against Christ’s Message”

Tori Amos 'Abnormally Attracted To Sin'

Tori Amos spoke with in a Q&A, talking about how she celebrates a new release, how her last album ‘Midwinter Graces’ inspired her latest effort ‘Night of Hunters’, the disappearance of the singer-songwriter from mainstream, gay marriage, suicides among gays, and if she thought there was hope for conservative congresswoman Michele Bachmann or people like her.

I don’t understand people. Again, I’m a minister’s daughter, I was brought up in the church; I do know the political side and how it works. If I could sit down with these people you’re mentioning, I’d say, “I thought Jesus was about love and not about judgment and damnation. I thought Christ came to question the judgment of a very harsh God.” I just find it completely against Christ’s message. I don’t know what they’re representing, but they’re as far away from Christ as my Bible teaching taught me and, you know what, I was brought up in the church! I’ve gone to church enough for almost every woman in America!

During an interview with, Tori Amos spoke about her new album ‘Night of Hunters’, the shocking mass killing in Oslo, watching an entire season of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ in a single day and her upcoming tour. On her one day addiction to the Bravo series, the 47-year-old confessed:

I actually sat with Tash at Easter and watched ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ from the beginning. She said, “Mom, you’re going to get addicted!” I sat there eating popcorn watching the whole thing – I couldn’t believe it – from early morning until late at night. My sister was flying in and we were waiting for her to show up and it wasn’t a great day outside and so we watched an entire season! It was crazy! But I couldn’t watch it ever again. I said, “I can’t do this, Tash – I’ll never work again!”

In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself, allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter.

Tori Amos Almost Wants To Lend Britney Spears Her Mother

Tori Amos

AOL Music’s Spinner spoke with Tori Amos in a Q&A, asking the singer about her 7-year-old daughter Natashya ‘Tash’ Lorien Hawle asking her questions about sexuality, how she handles it, and if she remembered going to her mother with those same questions. “My mom is the most … I almost want to lend Britney Spears my mother,” Amos said. “Not that I think that woman isn’t a good woman. My mother is almost eighty and has never been in the business. And one reason I have been able to sustain is because of my mother. And if I didn’t have my mother, who you just met, I would have no idea … I can’t look in your eyes and tell you I’d be sitting here. I honestly don’t think I would be. So I’m very fortunate because she’s so loving. However, she’s a Christian woman and there’s some things that she wouldn’t talk about. So, I learned in other ways: friends, books – we didn’t have the Internet then. So I made a decision that when Tash asks me, it’s feet to the fire time. I have to be able to walk the talk.” The transcript at has since been removed.
