Fiona Apple: Arrested for drug possession!

Fiona Apple

TMZ is reporting that Fiona Apple was arrested last night at a border stop in Texas. Her tour bus was stopped for inspection in Sierra Blanca, Texas and the police found hash. If you’re like me and never really understood what hashish is, it’s supposedly marijuana at higher concentration levels. Right now the singer is being held at Hudspeth County Jail.

Twitter is inundated with jokes about Fiona’s arrest. People are borrowing lyrics from her most famous song “Criminal.” I won’t go there. Fiona released one of the best albums of this year. The Idler Wheel is a masterpiece. If all of this (bad) press, rekindles people’s interest in the 90s songstress then I’m all for it. It isn’t the 90s anymore where Scott Weiland (of Stone Temple Pilots) and Courtney Love are getting arrested for heroin possesion. It’s only weed!

Pictures from her most recent live shows have been appearing on blogs, claiming she looks emaciated and worn down. But didn’t she always look too thin? Also, this is her first tour in seven years. It is expected that she might look a little worn down. It’s no secret that Fiona uses drugs. In New York Magazine‘s article “‘I Just Want to Feel Everything’: Hiding Out With Fiona Apple, Musical Hermit,” she openly smokes hash in the interview. Within the context of the piece you realize how much of an artist she really is, that the drug use doesn’t even phase the reader. She’s a brilliant, awkward and beautiful musician who sometimes smokes hash. Let’s move on.

Here at PopBytes, we are #TeamFiona. She deserves our endless support. The Idler Wheel is one of the most important records of the last few years.
