[article coming soon. In the meantime, read Tori’s quotes about the song.]

“I hope people who listen to the album will understand my conclusions. However, I am not trying to convince anyone. I simply try to facilitate a reaction. Also because the younger generation is too self-focused to take notice of the world that surrounds them. Take a girl today: she’s too preoccupied with trying to get a physically acceptable body to get politically involved. I try to talk to them, to get inside their problems, with songs like ‘Fat Slut,’ in order to understand them and then hopefully get them out of that rut.” (, April 12, 2007)

"There is a cruel side to people that is not covert anymore. I wish it would be in a way, because it’s horrific the way we treat each other. ’Fat Slut’ is not about Al-Qaida, American Doll Posse is really looking at the enemy from within. » (Attitude, May 2007)
