Fiona Apple has spoken about her brush with the law, opening up to an audience in Houston.
In one of last week's more unexpected news stories, American songwriter Fiona Apple was arrested in Texas for possession of hash. Spending some time in the cells, a mug shot quickly became viral property. Freed after a short time in custody, Fiona Apple is now back on the road. Competing a number of live shows, the songwriter decided to open up to a crowd in Houston.
Pitchfork point fans towards a video in which the singer reflects on her experience. Unusually, Fiona Apple decided to declare that she had witnessed four people - presumably police officers - discussing "probably illegal" behaviour. "Now, most of the people were very nice to me" she said. 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?"
