Fiona Apple

Evelyn McDonnell, Rolling Stone, 13 November 1997

FIONA APPLE is 20 years and one
 album old, and already she knows the
 bipolar swings of stardom. Thanks to
 one fortuitously placed demo tape, the 
New York high school student was
 discovered two years ago and became
 an insta-star with her platinum debut, Tidal. And thanks to one somewhat 
ungrateful-sounding speech as she accepted MTV's Best New Artist 
award in September, she has earned
 the scorn of many.
