Seriously: who is heckling Fiona Apple at shows? Are you a monster? Okay, rant over. In addition to being talented and feeling a lifetime's worth of emotions in an endless, and probably exhausting, five-minute cycle, Fiona Apple is also drop dead gorgeous.
She taught herself piano at age eight as an escape from the pain of her parents' divorce. She was already scarily intense by eleven, when she confessed to a friend that she was going to kill herself and her sister. Then things got worse when she was assaulted at twelve, an experience she shares in her aptly titled song "Sullen Girl. On a happier note, her demo made it into the right hands, and her debut Tidal became a smash hit. The closest to skin Fiona gets is in her breakthrough video for "Criminal," in which she strips down to silken skivvies and appears topless, albeit from behind.
It seems that as long as Fiona Apple has been with us, she's been as infamous as she has been famous: tear-streaked interviews, public confessions, punking an entire awards show in a single acceptance speech. All her crazy behavior earned her a rep and at the same time, made her an icon. This week Apple releases the first single off her forthcoming The Idler Wheel , and so we revisit the moments when Fiona's been a bad, bad girl. Things escalated, with the singer crying and staring at the V. Every time she returns with a new record is a welcome surprise — making every album release a triumphant comeback.
