Evanescence’s Amy Lee Plays ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’

Subscribe to Loudwire on

We’ve got an amazing guest in our latest episode of ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’ Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee sat down with us to prove and disprove what’s written about her on Wikipedia.

We were ecstatic when Amy Lee dropped by our studio to chat about the future of Evanescence and her new kids album, Dream Too Much. While Amy was around, we took the chance to have her clear up the many entries on herself and Evanescence.

Amy confirmed she indeed wanted to be a classical composer at age 11. In fact, Amy got her inspiration from the film Amadeus, which also inspired her to play upside down and with her hands crossed like Tom Hulce did while playing the role of Mozart.

Lee did clear up some fiction about Evanescence’s big break. Once discovered, the band was relocated to Los Angeles and were given various lessons to sharpen their performance and stage presence. However, Wikipedia states that Amy was given “movement lessons,” but the singer clarified that fact with a clear explanation of what she actually was taught.

Watch Amy Lee discuss her childhood, Evanescence’s career and her motivations for songwriting in this episode of ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’ Amy Lee’s Dream Too Much album is available now through Amazon, and Amazon Prime members can stream the entire record for free right now! Additionally, you can pre-order Evanescence’s comprehensive box set ‘The Ultimate Collection’ here.
