Fiona Apple’s recent incarceration for hash possession has flung the reclusive songstress into the spotlight, but the chatter isn’t all about her recent stint in jail. As attacks on her weight and her erratic behavior continue to pour out, Apple is fighting back. Via Pitchfork:
Perez Hilton, TMZ, whoever you represent: I’m not invulnerable to this stuff. I’ve been around for many years, but it hurts. I didn’t need to hear that I’m 90 years old just because I didn’t have a facelift in the last seven years. I’m fucking losing weight because I’m having trouble digesting food because your guts are connected to your brain and I have a lot of stress in my brain.”
