Fiona Apple Q&A

John Lewis, Time Out, 4 April 2006

FIONA APPLE was born in New York in 1977. She has since recorded with Johnny Cash, dated Paul Thomas Anderson and David Blaine, been a PETA activist, released an album with a 90-word title, been mocked at the Grammys for a speech about Maya Angelou, and written songs about her rape as a 12-year-old. Her 2005 third LP Extraordinary Machine, released after three years of record company wrangling, was a multi-platinum seller.
