Fiona Apple was arrested last week after admitting to possession of cannabis on her tour bus after being stopped at a well-known checkpoint in Hudson County, Texas.
After she was let out, the war of words began to fly.
At a Friday concert in Houston, Apple felt the need to note that people were largely nice during her stay in jail, with the exception of four people, who she claims acted “inappropriate” and believed that some of what happened was “illegal.”
“I’ll make you famous any time you ask,” she says.
In response, Sheriff spokesman Rusty Fleming said, “First, honey, I’m already more famous than you,” — which, well, that’s just plain incorrect — “I don’t need your help. However, it would appear that you need mine.”
Then, this super-famous Sheriff spokesman of a county in Texas (we already forgot the name) decided to give her some advice: “shut up and sing.”
Apple’s latest album, before this incident, was charting number three in the United States.
