Fiona Apple Arrested In West Texas For Hash Possession (UPDATED)
UPDATE: Friday night's Houston show is still happening at Bayou Music Center. Don't believe the pipe, er, hype. Hell, you can still get tickets.
Sierra Blanca, Texas -- that wonderful city in far West Texas that loves to pinch leaf-loving musicians like Willie Nelson and Snoop
Dogg Lion -- has claimed another trophy, arresting singer Fiona Apple Wednesday night for pot possession.
According to TMZ, the singer-songwriter was arrested for possession on her tour bus. There was also an indeterminate amount of hash on board as well.
UPDATE: Fuse has a detailed account of the arrest courtesy of Rusty Fleming, Public Information Officer for the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office. It looks like Apple "freely admitted" that the dope was hers.
Apple is due to play Austin's ACL Live tonight, and Houston's Bayou Music Center Friday. Both shows have been highly anticipated by fans, some of whom have never seen Apple live.
Phones are ringing off the hook at the Austin venue, and Rocks Off is still waiting to hear back from Live Nation folks here in Houston on the status of Friday's show.
No word yet from either Apple's camp or Live Nation on whether those or any shows have been postponed or canceled , but we will keep you all posted.
UPDATE: According to ACL Live, Thursday night's Apple show has been postponed pending further notice.
We're excited about seeing her too. New album The Idler Wheel... is pretty awesome.
UPDATE: And now TMZ has a horrifying Apple mugshot.
