How could Tori do this to me?!

"By the way, the cd also gets four different cover pictures. They do it with magazines to: Elle sometimes makes to covers from the same issue and they look which one sells best. I'm curious which Tori my fans want: the cool one, the hot one, the slut, the virgin, the glamour puss, the twins or the librarian. " - Tori Amos

Doesn't she KNOW that it would be impossible for some fans to be satisfied with just one photo?? Is this some marketing scheme?? (foray hops up and down) For those of you who've read my Radiohead thread, you know hw much I hate such marketing ploys. Does she want her most dedicated fans to buy 4 albums each??

I believe these are the four album covers:









They're all too irresistable!

Definitely sounds like a ploy to boost sales. Kind of surprising considering the source. I guess the almighty dollar rules with everyone.

I say...why not put the 3 additional covers in the cd as single sheets? then u could interchange them...if she really wants to know which her fans prefer she can run a poll, geez...

Good God, what has Tori done!!!!??

Sorry folks, but I don't like ANY of them!

Wayyyyyyyyy too much make-up, and what's the deal with her hair!

THIS is the Tori I like:

ack, I can't believe Tori is doing this... I dunno just strikes me as unusual for her! Even if it isn't to boost sales, it's so that the public can design her image... that in itself is in poor taste. I can point to lyrics she has written where I doubt she put much of the public reaction into them--she has been one to just do what is within herself, she should follow through with that. If she ever offers a poll, I'll let her know this

P.S. it's amazing how many looks someone can have though--I'd like to borrow her make-up/clothing artists
