I really respect her as an artist. I read her account of her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe, "Just Kids" and it struck me how both of them felt truly compelled to create. Some of her music is awesome, but some I don't really like at all. It doesn't diminish my esteem for her craft, though. She's a very good writer, and her interview with Johnny Depp in Vanity Fair a while back revealed her to be a very insightful interviewer.
