Joni Mitchell

And obviously, people like Joni Mitchell were very inspirational when I was younger because they created music that wasn’t men’s music. You know, when I was young, a lot of women just fronted men-universes – they were just the berry on top. And Joni Mitchell, seeing people like her play on TV - they weren’t anti-men, but the music they made was a woman’s world. An universe. And it was just the fact that it was possible was inspirational for me. It wasn’t like musically wanted to be like them or a singer, definitely not. I just thought that what they could create, this different place, was amazing.", April 8 2008
