Famous quotes by Ani DiFranco
A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don't want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous 'girl power' sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it's a way of taking the politics out of feminism and making it some kind of fashion.Ani DiFranco
Art is why I get up in the morning but my definition ends there. You know I don't think its fair that I'm living for something I can't even define.Ani DiFranco
Art may imitate life, but life imitates TV.Ani DiFranco
God forbid you be an ugly girl, 'course too pretty is also your doom, 'cause everyone harbors a secret hatred for the prettiest girl in the room.Ani DiFranco
I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing 'chick' music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It's part of the cultural dynamic, I guess.Ani DiFranco
I hate it when people don't recognize the work of women as being universal, or having any import to the world at large, as opposed to men's work, which is generally tends to be seen as more universal - men's writing about their own experience tends to be put in a broader context.Ani DiFranco
I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is comfort where we overlap.Ani DiFranco
I see a lot of connections between folk and punk music just because they're both subcorporate music - I mean, traditionally.Ani DiFranco
I seriously hate pop music and all things super-commercial.Ani DiFranco
I was blessed with a birth and a death, and I guess I just want some say in between.Ani DiFranco
I'd rather be able to face myself in the bathroom mirror than be rich and famous.Ani DiFranco
I've been trying to learn how to not be so conflicted about things like my own anger. I've always had a place in my music for my anger as a way of compensating for not having a mechanism to express it in my everyday life. So I've been trying to be more true to myself, and that helps me to chill out a little bit. But politically, uh-uh. No.Ani DiFranco
I've never had a very closely connected family. My parents split up when I was young and I was living with my mom for a little while, then I was kind of just on my own really young. It wasn't some kind of global tragedy, it was just never really a very close-knit family. So there was support in the sense that they didn't stand in my way.Ani DiFranco
Love is a piano dropped from a fourth story window, and you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.Ani DiFranco
Maybe you don't like your job, maybe you didn't get enough sleep, well nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep. Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there's no escape, there's no excuse, so just suck up and be nice.Ani DiFranco
Men make angry music and it's called rock-and-roll women include anger in their vocabulary and suddenly they're angry and militant.Ani DiFranco
Patriarchy is like the elephant in the room that we don't talk about, but how could it not affect the planet radically when it's the superstructure of human society.Ani DiFranco
Pop stardom is not very compelling. I'm much more interested in a relationship between performer and audience that is of equals. I came up through folk music, and there's no pomp and circumstance to the performance. There's no, like, 'I'll be the rock star, you be the adulating fan.'Ani DiFranco
Sometimes the beauty is easy. Sometimes you don't have to try at all. Sometimes you can hear the wind blow in a handshake. Sometimes there's poetry written right on the bathroom wall.Ani DiFranco
Strangers are exciting, their mystery never ends. But, there's nothing like looking at your own history in the faces of your friends.Ani DiFranco
Why do you think I write these feminist songs, to try and teach myself to respect myself. You know, it's not because I'm a hero.Ani DiFranco
