Fiona Apple opens up about breaking down in Portland.


I wish I would have known Fiona Apple was coming to Portland! I would have gone! I love her. I think she’s a bit odd, but I do like her music (for the most part). Anyhoo, she was in Portland earlier this month, and she broke down as she finished her performance because of a heckler in the audience.

According to Stereogum, a concert-goer criticized Apple for her slim appearance, shouting out to her as she played, “Fiona! Get healthy! We want to see you in 10 years!” The comments angered Apple who reportedly responded in a curse-filled rant, saying that she is healthy and telling the heckler to leave the concert.

Pitchfork recently caught up with Apple after the incident, getting her take on the criticism.

“She hurt my feelings,” Apple said of the heckler. “I don’t think what I look like is relevant. And by the way, this whole ‘unhealthy’ thing has me baffled. It’s really confusing to me why anyone would have an opinion about that… It’s really disappointing. I can’t laugh—I’m an emotional person.”

“It’s a sensitive subject because it’s not something that should be talked about, because there is nothing wrong with me,” Apple continued. “I’m healthy and I shouldn’t even have to say any of that. What makes me unhealthy and puts me in danger is that kind of scrutiny itself. It’s the same as being bullied at school, and just because you’re getting older, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t hurt by it. You could make anybody cry if you told them that they’re ugly.”

Apple, who has long faced criticism over her weight, has been touring to support her latest studio album, “The Idler Wheel…”

I think Fiona DOES look sickly. She just does…. BUT I think it’s really tacky to scream it out at her while she’s performing. Why pay all that money to see her in concert, just to scream nasty things at her? That I don’t get. Here are some recent pictures of Fiona. She DOES look sick(ish). But like she said, hasn’t she ALWAYS looked like this?

Fiona Apple tells her audience to “Shut the F**K up!”

Fiona, Fiona.

The singer performed at a Louis Vuitton “Timeless Muses” party in Tokyo last week, and when her audience wouldn’t be quiet, she told them all to “shut the F–K up!”

Before storming off the stage she called everyone “rude,” and said “Predictable! Predictable fashion, what the f–k?”

Apparently the show wasn’t going well to start with. She hit herself on the head with her microphone, stood on her piano, and more.

Reps from Louis Vuitton haven’t commented.

Fiona Apple’s latest: “I am not that f**ked up”

Fiona Apple is thinking twice about the comments she made a couple of days ago, regarding her arrest for drug possession. (Go here to see what she said.) She must have realized she came across like a complete lunatic, because last night she kinda sorta said she didn’t really mean it in the first place.

Fiona Apple desperately regrets her hash and weed arrest last week — because the drug bust is taking ALL the spotlight away from her new album … and she bitched about it last night … on tape.

Fiona was performing at the House of Blues in New Orleans — and before she kicked off her set, she addressed the crowd, saying, “This record with me … I’m really sorry … All the work we did is being overshadowed by this bulls**t.”

Fiona’s obviously referring to her Texas drug bust last week, when she was allegedly popped with a baseball-sized chunk of weed and a bunch of hash. According to cops, Fiona admitted the drugs were hers.

Fiona then ignited a firestorm by publicly blasting 4 police officers for allegedly mistreating her during the arrest. In a bizarre moment on stage the other night … She said she kept a log of the abuses in a “lockbox” and planned to use it against the officers.

But last night she took it all back, saying … “There are no f**king lock boxes. I didn’t make up a code. It was my way to make a parallel between the south. I am not that f**ked up.”

Uh huh, yeah. Sure.

Police to Fiona Apple: “Just shut up and sing!”

Fiona Apple recently spent a night in jail last week after being arrested for possession of marijuana and hashish. Police conducted a search on her tour bus in Texas, and found the illegal drugs.

Just one day after being released from jail, Fiona performed a show in Houston on Friday. Between songs, Fiona gave the audience a little speech, lashing out at the police officers. She even accused THEM of engaging in illegal behavior! She let the audience know that she could bring the entire station down with the revelations that she has against them.

Here’s more from her rant via Pitchfork:

“Now, most of the people were very nice to me. There are four of you out there, and I want you to know that I heard everything you did. I wrote it all down with your names and everything you did and said stupidly thinking that I couldn’t hear or see you. I then ripped the paper up, but not before I encoded it and– I got two lock boxes. We’ll call them “holding cell one” and “holding cell two”. In “holding cell one” is the encoded version of the shit that you did that I know was inappropriate and probably illegal. In “holding cell two” is the decoder. I’m the only one who holds the key, and you and I will be intimate forever because I will hold that secret forever. Unless of course the celebrity that you had so much interest in but you wanted to accuse me of bringing up while you laughed at me all night? Unless you’re interested in being a celebrity, I’ll make you fucking famous any time you ask and I’ll open those boxes. So why don’t you stay in your fucking holding cell?”

Okay, crazy much?

The Public Information Officer of the Hudspeth County Sherrif’s Department has fired back at Fiona. Officer Rusty Flemming wrote Fiona an open letter, and basically told her to sit her ass down and shut up. Here it is via TMZ:

First, Honey, I’m already more famous than you, I don’t need your help. However, it would appear that you need mine.

Two weeks ago nobody in the country cared about what you had to say, — now that you’ve been arrested it appears your entire career has been jump-started. Don’t worry Sweetie, I won’t bill you.

Next, have you ever heard of Snoop, Willie or Armand Hammer? Maybe if you would read something besides your own press releases, you would have known BEFORE you got here, that if you come to Texas with dope, the cops will take your DOPE away and put YOU in jail.

Even though you and I only met briefly in the hallway, I don’t know you but I’m sure you’re an awesome and talented young woman and even though I’m not a fan of yours, I am sure there are thousands of them out there, and I’m sure that they would just as soon you get this all behind you and let you go back to what you do best—so my last piece of advice is simple “just shut-up and sing.”

Rusty Fleming

Love Rusty! Wow, that’s kind of hilarious! Fiona totally had it coming. Rusty: 1, Fiona: 0.
