Fiona Apple addresses drug arrest in onstage speech


Singer Fiona Apple addressed her recent drug arrest in a rambling speech during a show in Houston on Friday.

The "Criminal" singer was arrested on Wednesday on a drug possession charge and was subsequently released on $10,000 bail after spending the night in Hudspeth County Jail.

She postponed a gig on Thursday at the Moody Theater in Austin, but took to the stage on Friday at Houston's Bayou Music Center, where she took time out from performing to blast several staff at the jail where she was incarcerated.

Tell us on Facebook: Do you think Fiona's speech is going to backfire on her?

"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," she said.

"I then ripped the paper up, but not before I encoded it."

Apple added she was sorry to "the guy who runs the jail," who she branded "a real decent guy," for "being attitude-y and saying that I didn't trust him. Because I didn't then but by the end of the day I did."

Most of these post look like a troll fluffing all that is troll perfection with multiple addy's. there are a few good post. Some good guessing and so not so...Im not a Fiona expert and dont really like to see or here others dog anyone. She appears to be many things you can point at as all of you in you own little part of it all. I did see her on Jimmy Foulans show a few months ago. I wasnt into her own music BUT she did one of the best songs i ever listened to on live t.v. it was a Wings song  in honor of Paul McCartney's b-day. as a musician i know moments are rare on stage when everyone is on it for even one song...yes they can be close an all but the magic only comes every now an agian. this would be one of those all lite up perfomances. if you check it out clean the mix up a little for the full effect..t.v. sound guys have to chunk the mix into mono camera feed. so its what it is and i know the girl can doit when she all of us motivation......cant have good with out the bad. so many artist hang thier soul out there and live it out just to get one more line or verse made for a song they are writing. other watch like trolls...waiting waiting.. but will never lite up on stage like the one that lived it.. So i hope this helps some understand why so many seem and are self destructive. thanks for reading and please dont spell check or pooofff read...its troll food ...they must have it or we all would be the same.  jboveranout
