Photos of Tori Amos shooting…something around New York started popping up on fan sites this past spring. At the time, the singer’s often-obsessive fans didn’t know what to make of it. Was this a photo shoot—for a magazine? For album art? Was it a video shoot for that long-delayed American Doll Posse tour doc/live DVD? Turns out, Amos was filming the video for her new version of “Flavor,” from her new collection of orchestral re-recordings, Gold Dust. The video finds Amos all glammed-the-shit-up, skulking around Williamsburg—homegirl takes the JMZ!—the Village, and the Christopher Street Pier.
It is a pretty random video to say the least, not to mention kind of an odd choice for a single: a fairly recent from 2009’s Abnormally Attracted to Sin. But most surprising is the amount of shade the gays are throwing Tori’s way. Her wardrobe is a little OTT in this video, and we’re not sure what’s going on with her face, but the general consensus on the Interwebs is that she needs to lay off the Botox. Personally, we’re not sure we’ve seen her real hair since 2005.
