about : the album cover

When I went to Alexander McQueen, I explained to him the person who wrote these songs -- someone who was put into an impossible situation, so impossible that she had to become a warrior. A warrior who had to fight not with weapons, but with love. I had 10 kilos of hair on my head, and special contact lenses and a manicure that prevented me from eating with my fingers, and gaffer tape around my waist and high clogs so I couldn't walk easily. I wanted to put all the emotion of the album into that image.
