"I don't talk about the details because I can't, but it's freeing to sing that song [Me And A Gun]. I have to go in a trance to sing it. ... It gets exhausting singing it. But there's so much going on that nobody talks about, and I just found that out with myself after so many years of not talking."
Tori Amos - The Washington Post, March 22, 1992
This video has been posted for almost a week (tomorrow). I felt like I should write about it because it seemed to be somewhat of a big deal. It has over 188,500 views, was #2 most viewed for the week (along with 10 other honors), a four-star rating (out of 251 rates), 232 comments, has been favored 325 times, and has been posted by several sites including AOL and Perez Hilton.
I'm thrilled so many people have watched the video and expressed their opinions about it. When I first started filing it I thought it was going to be Blood Roses and had no idea it would go to this extent. I'm not trying to say I'm above it or that I am flaunting in any way, I just thought it needed to be said. Thank you to everyone who watched - who enjoyed it - hated it - felt uncomfortable - and commented.
