American singer Tori Amos has adapted perfectly to life in England - as she finds the unpredictable climate is far more inspiring than in the temperate United States.

And the CORNFLAKE GIRL singer, 41, who moved to the stormy south-west region of Cornwall in 1998, is fascinated by the way the elements "dictate to everyone".

She says, "I wouldn't have chosen to move to Cornwall, but now I wouldn't unchoose it.

"I moved to Notting Hill, London in 1991 when my record company had the idea the British would be more open than the Americans to what I was doing. Husband and I moved to Cornwall after we got married.

"I've never been any place like it - the land and the weather dictate to everyone."
