-> ''"So my father said to me, 'Tori Ellen, I can't believe you wrote this song about me.' I said, 'I write everything about you, what are you surprised about?'

As noted above, this led her to co-found RAINN and she has put uncountable hours and a significant portion of her money into the organization.
-->'' In the song, I say it was Me and a Gun but it wasn't a gun. It was a knife he had. And the idea was to take me to his friends and cut me up, and he kept telling me that, for hours. And if he hadn't needed more drugs I would have been just one more news report, where you see the parents grieving for their daughter.''

* WordSaladLyrics: ''Boys for Pele'' was even panned by critics for its hard-to-decipher lyrics. One critic said that Gravity's Rainbow in Greek would be easier to understand!

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Most of her music falls into levels 1 - 3, but some songs can fall into levels 4 or 5 (like "She's Your Cocaine" and "Teenage Hustling"). The above-linked version of "Cruel" might rate a 6, but that's as high as she gets.

* AuthorAvatar: The "[[DecompositeCharacter dolls]]" of ''American Doll Posse'' all represent aspects of Tori Amos herself, with a hint of SelfParody. Isabel is Amos's political side, Clyde is her "sad girl at the piano" persona, Pip is Tori the screaming banshee and Santa is her sexy side. The doll named Tori is a caricature of all Amos, though she emphasises her "Earth Mother" persona.



* BiTheWay: Subverted. Tori has said that she would be bi, but she just "[doesn't] eat pussy".


Added DiffLines:

* {{Camp}}: ''American Doll Posse''.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfParody: Around the ''American Doll Posse'' era, Tori was essentially playing a drag queen version of herself.
