Fiona Apple is really, really adamant that she didn’t – contrary to Women’s Wear Daily’s POV – “storm off stage” at a Louis Vuitton-branded show in Tokyo last week. WWD claims that, having got angry at the party’s noisy fashionistas, Apple told the crowd to “shut the fuck up”, adding “Predictable! Predictable fashion, what the fuck?” and, finally, making an exit.
Sharing her view of the evening’s events in a statement sent to Questlove, which he has shared on Okayplayer, Apple insists she didn’t leave ahead of time, saying: “I FINISHED MY SET! I did my job, and they should do theirs too. They all miss the fact that there is a difference between the back-of-the-room-chatter that is simply annoying, and the operatic drunken blather, or the heckling that is really just INTERRUPTING that makes it impossible for us to do our jobs. I hope your readers are already hip to the fact that they are consistently lied to… no apologies”.
I have to say I’m with Apple on this one; I mean, Kate Moss was at the party, and we’re all aware how talkative she is.
