I love these two songs I keep hearing from her, "Rehab" (great 60's soul/pop sound, those horns, the drums/bass, bells, etc...sounds like an an old Phil Spector song/production) and "You Know I'm No Good.

But she frightens me a little, I gotta say.



I'm guessing she's a complete handful. She looks it.

Anyone know anything about her? She looks like a wreck most times I see her, but something about her voice and how she looks when she sings pulls me in. And I love her tattoos.

I personally dont like the way she sings nor do I think she's remotely attractive.

She also has poor work ethic. She's canceled several shows lately due to illness and has been seen out drinking and partying. That's just lack of respect to your fans.

I don't think she's very attractive either (I said she scares me). But a unique, quirky voice.

I don't know anything about her, but was Googling a little while ago and she seems to be a bit spotty and fond of the drink and wildness.

Another rock-and-roll casualty waiting to happen? Who knows.

OMG...WTF?!?

Is that really her in both pics?

Unless she got that tattoo removed from left arm since that pic of "then" they aren't the same person.

I had never heard of her before seeing this thread.

After seeing the links here, my opinion of her hasn't changed a bit.

(That being my complete disinterest and lack of an opinion.)

I don't get this tori - I can't seen any tattoo on her left arm in the "then" photo.

OK, with studio magic, she sounds pretty good.

Then you hear what she actually sounds like in that Beat It video.

Ugh.


(Same thing with The Pipettes - sound good on record/video, then see footage of a performance and find out they can't sing for shit)

She's had a couple of decent studio albums, of which I've bought both (yes I'm old enough to be of the generation which actually still buys music nowadays). But as a person she's a wasted loser with a steadily inflating ego.

Not attracted to her either (too much of the skanky, I wear black thing going on), but to answer the original query, the woman in the video... she's filthy. She's the kind of woman who wants to be spanked. So yes, a handful (assuming she's not anorexic like the photo above, in which case she is not lovin'-certified in the first place).

...into the light of a dark black night.

Oh, but I wouldn't put her in the same category of "fuckwit" as say Pete Doherty. He really is a loser.

She had a performance in Copenhagen a month or so ago. She was so drunk/high/hung over she could only stare into the air in front of her while she was doing her thing.

The next Bond movie might be hilarious if they can't sober her up a little.

I kinda like her attitude. Let's hope we get to keep her at least as long as George Best.

She's going to be in a James Bond movie? As what? A shaken and stirred martini? One of James' drunken, regrettable conquests?

The "now" photo above is misleading; my roommate photographed her in March and she looked thicker than in that picture. Her voice, when she's not totally loaded, reminds me of Lauryn Hill, but I'm not really into either of their styles. That being said, there's something impishly attractive about a lush female singer.

Well I don't know how recent the "now" shot above is; no idea. I simply found that pic on the Internet, as is (the split screen, "then" and "now" already on it...wasn't my creation; Google it and you'll see).

She could've been that wasted away last autumn or so, for all I know. I wouldn't know a recent picture of her if I saw it.



But at one time she appeared to be somewhat healthy and curvy, then she became quite skinny and sick-looking. Maybe she's back now to something nicer?

In any case, I wasn't trying to be "misleading". But she apparently did look that way at one point, that's all.

Maybe she's eaten a sandwich or two since the "now" pic was taken?

scates, I thought that we established that the picture above was fake, unless she got a big tattoo removed from her arm...

I didn't think we established anything.

I don't think it's fake at all.

Paulie Boy here is right, you guys. The "then" picture is mirrored horizontally meaning the tattoo is on her right arm which is hidden in the "now" picture. She still has that tattoo and had that one before the ones all over her shoulders. All it takes is pinging Google Images for a few seconds to see that. (1, 2)

Now, can we finally shoot that argument in the head?
