It changed my world

She gave us all permission. Until Joni, I felt like all these feelings and all of that artsitic expression and working out your sexual selves and your emotional selves in a public and creative forum - I thought that was all the province of men until Joni did it. And then I saw how possible it was for a woman to explore [that] in a public arena. And it was completely inspiring. It changed my world.
