’97 Bonnie & Clyde

Sunday 25 September 2011, by Cécile Desbrun

““Bonnie and Clyde” took some time. I talked about that whole record a lot with [husband] Mark and Neil Gaiman, who is Tash’s godfather [Tash is Amos’s daughter], for a long time right after she was born. My nephew was obsessed with Eminem, and I just didn’t perceive that he was really listening. I wanted to get him to hear what was being said. That cover came from knowing that songs can have more than one meaning. I could expand the story, without changing a word, which to me showed that Eminem is a brilliant writer. But there was an important, critical voice missing from that song.” (Bitch Magazine, May 19, 2014)
