Read Fiona Apple’s Statement On Tokyo “Meltdown”

By Tom Breihan / September 4, 2013

Last week, during a performance at a Louis Vuitton event in Tokyo, Fiona Apple got fed up with a chatty audience. We reported that she cussed the crowd out and stormed offstage. But apparently, we were missing an important piece of the puzzle: According to Apple, she only stormed offstage after she’d already finished her set. Apple made a statement about the show in an email to a friend of hers, Roots drummer and bandleader ?uestlove. ?uesto then posted the statement online; check it out below.

if it wouldn’t be too much trouble, if you could tweet to the twits who call themselves journalists(example Chris Martins of sit-and-Spin Magazine) that I FINISHED MY SET!!! I did my job, and they should do theirs too–They all miss the fact that there is a difference between the back-of-the-room-chatter that is simply annoying,–and the operatic drunken blather, or the heckling that is really just INTERRUPTING that makes it impossible for us to do our jobs. I hope your readers are already hip to the fact that they are consistently lied to… no apologies. -Fiona.

We’re going to have to use the sit-and-Spin thing everytime we see Spin guys in the hallway now.
