On Thursday singer Fiona Apple entered into the Hudspeth County Texas Marijuana Bust Hall of Flame alongside such notable tokers as Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg when she was arrested after a drug sniffing dog (not Dogg mind you) caught wind of Apple’s tour bus and police found about four grams of marijuana and four grams of hashish in a backpack. Apple spent the night in jail and was forced to reschedule her concert in Austin scheduled for that evening. She posted $10,000 bail Friday morning and was able to make her appearance at the Bayou Music Center in Houston where she kicked off the show by addressing her arrest.

Talk about your bad apples! Fiona Apple has been arrested after being pulled aside at a border stop in Sierra Blanca, Texas where police searched her tour bus and found hashish. The small West Texas town is notorious for hip hemper busts having previously arrested popular puffers Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson. (“Welcome to Sierra Blanca, where we’re totally not cool dude.”)
Here’s further evidence that British music journalists think all female American alternative pop stars in their 30s with critically-acclaimed mid-1990s debut albums look alike. In the current issue of NME (New Musical Express) magazine there is a review for Fiona Apple’s new album The Idler Wheel is Wiser than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords will Serve You more than Ropes will ever do (Yes, that is the album’s actual title) for which they used a large photo of Jagged Little Pill singer Alanis Morissette.
