Mitchell and her daughter met in When she could not express herself to the person she wanted to talk to, she became attuned to the whole world, and she began to write personally. She said, "I made my dress and bridesmaids' dresses. We had no money I walked down the aisle brandishing my daisies. The marriage and partnership of Joni and Chuck Mitchell dissolved in early , and Joni moved to New York City to follow her musical path as a solo artist.
She performed frequently in coffeehouses and folk clubs and, by this time creating her own material, became well known for her unique songwriting and her innovative guitar style. Folk singer Tom Rush had met Mitchell in Toronto and was impressed with her songwriting ability.
He took "Urge for Going" to the popular folk artist Judy Collins , but she was not interested in the song at the time, so Rush recorded it himself. Collins also covered "Chelsea Morning", another recording that eclipsed Mitchell's own commercial success early on.
While Mitchell was playing one night in the Gaslight South,  a club in Coconut Grove , Florida, David Crosby walked in and was immediately struck by her ability and her appeal as an artist. Soon she was being managed by Elliot Roberts , who, after being urged by Buffy Sainte-Marie, had first seen her play in a Greenwich Village coffee house. Eventually she was signed to the Warners-affiliated Reprise label by talent scout Andy Wickham. Mitchell toured steadily to promote the LP. The tour helped create eager anticipation for Mitchell's second LP, Clouds , which was released in April This album contained Mitchell's own versions of some of her songs already recorded and performed by other artists: " Chelsea Morning ", " Both Sides, Now ", and "Tin Angel".
The covers of both LPs, including a self-portrait on Clouds , were designed and painted by Mitchell, a blending of her painting and music that she continued throughout her career. The following month, Reprise released her third album, Ladies of the Canyon. Mitchell's sound was already beginning to expand beyond the confines of acoustic folk music and toward pop and rock, with more overdubs, percussion, and backing vocals, and for the first time, many songs composed on piano, which became a hallmark of Mitchell's style in her most popular era.
The album also included the already-familiar song "The Circle Game" and the environmental anthem " Big Yellow Taxi ", with its now-famous line, "they paved paradise and put up a parking lot. Ladies of the Canyon was an instant smash on FM radio and sold briskly, eventually becoming Mitchell's first gold album selling over a half million copies. She made a decision to stop touring for a year and just write and paint, yet she was still voted "Top Female Performer" for by Melody Maker , a leading UK pop music magazine.
The songs she wrote during the months she took off for travel and life experience appeared on her next album, Blue , released in June Comparing Joni Mitchell's talent to his own, David Crosby said, "By the time she did Blue , she was past me and rushing toward the horizon".
Blue was an almost instant critical and commercial success, peaking in the top 20 in the Billboard Album Charts in September and also hitting the British Top 3. The lushly produced " Carey " was the single at the time, but musically, other parts of Blue departed further from the sounds of Ladies of the Canyon. Her most confessional album, Mitchell later said of Blue , "I have, on occasion, sacrificed myself and my own emotional makeup, We all suffer for our loneliness, but at the time of Blue , our pop stars never admitted these things.
Mitchell later remarked, "At that period of my life, I had no personal defenses. I felt like a cellophane wrapper on a pack of cigarettes. I felt like I had absolutely no secrets from the world and I couldn't pretend in my life to be strong. Mitchell decided to return to the live stage after the great success of Blue , and she presented new songs on tour which appeared on her next album, her fifth, For the Roses.
The album was released in October and immediately zoomed up the charts. Court and Spark , released in January , saw Mitchell begin the flirtation with jazz and jazz fusion that marked her experimental period ahead. Court and Spark went to No. The LP made Mitchell a widely popular act for perhaps the only time in her career, on the strength of popular tracks such as the rocker " Raised on Robbery ", which was released right before Christmas , and " Help Me ", which was released in March of the following year, and became Mitchell's only Top 10 single when it peaked at No.
Express as what she called her first real backing group. In February , her tour with the L. Express began, and they received rave notices as they traveled across the United States and Canada during the next two months.
A series of shows at L. In November, Mitchell released that album, Miles of Aisles , a two-record set including all but two songs from the L. Music Center, on March 4, were also included in the set. The live album slowly moved up to No.
Mitchell went into the studio in early to record acoustic demos of some songs that she had written since the Court and Spark tour. A few months later she recorded versions of the tunes with her band. Her musical interests were now diverging from both the folk and the pop scene of the era, toward less structured, more jazz-inspired pieces, with a wider range of instruments.
On "The Jungle Line", she made an early effort at sampling a recording of African musicians, something that became more commonplace among Western rock acts in the s. In early , Mitchell traveled with friends who were driving cross country to Maine. Afterwards, she drove back to California alone and composed several songs during her journey which featured on her next album, 's Hejira.
She stated that "This album was written mostly while I was traveling in the car. That's why there were no piano songs The album climbed to No. Hejira "did not sell as briskly as Mitchell's earlier, more "radio-friendly" albums, [but] its stature in her catalogue has grown over the years". In she said, "I suppose a lot of people could have written a lot of my other songs, but I feel the songs on Hejira could only have come from me.
In mid, Mitchell began work on new recordings that became her first double studio album. Close to completing her contract with Asylum Records, Mitchell felt that this album could be looser in feel than any album she'd done in the past.
She invited Pastorius back, and he brought with him fellow members of jazz fusion pioneers Weather Report , including drummer Don Alias and saxophonist Wayne Shorter. Other songs continued the jazz-rock-folk collisions of Hejira. Mitchell also revived "Jericho", written years earlier a version is found on her live album but never recorded in a studio setting. Don Juan's Reckless Daughter was released in December The album received mixed reviews but still sold relatively well, peaking at No.
The cover of the album created its own controversy: Mitchell was featured in several photographs, including one where she was in blackface, wearing a curly afro wig, a white suit and vest, and dark sunglasses. The character, whom she called Art Nouveau, was based on a pimp who, she says, once complimented her while walking down an LA street — and was a symbol of her turn toward jazz and streetwise lyrics. A few months after the release of Don Juan's Reckless Daughter , Mitchell was contacted by the esteemed jazz composer, bandleader and bassist Charles Mingus , who had heard the orchestrated song "Paprika Plains", and wanted her to work with him.
She began a collaboration with Mingus, who died before the project was completed in She finished the tracks, and the resulting album, Mingus , was released in June , though it was poorly received in the press.

I picked that Marilyn Manson as the fakest stage name of all to say that this is what show business is, fake. Marilyn Monroe wasn't even her real name, Charles Manson isn't his real name, and now, I'm taking that to be my real name.
But what's real? You can't find the truth, you just pick the lie you like the best. As long as you know everything's a lie, you can't hurt yourself. Billy Zane is someone that I met and is a fellow artist, and sometimes we work together, painting, however pretentious that might sound. It was really quite simple, though. We would just spend time together, hanging out, listening to music, or painting.
We became friends. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Hollywood. And I think he's a cool actor. Part of me is afraid to get close to people because I'm afraid that they're going to leave. I've always had the same level of excitement about making music, but now it seems so much more important because all of the blame that was put on me for Columbine.
The entire incident, the way the media reacted, the people who were involved, the way I was treated, it hurt me personally because my career is my life.
It made me feel a lot like how I felt growing up because it was a lot of people beating you down and treating you a certain way for something you're not even responsible for. I just really had to re-evaluate what I was gonna do; How am I gonna respond to this, how am I gonna take this? And I wanted to come out swinging with both fists. It is a great feeling to write a song, but to be able to perform it, it takes on a whole different light.
The ability to make small children cry at the grocery store I like better than the fame.
