Smart Dame of the Week Fiona Apple

Last week was slow for news due to the holiday. It was hard to pick a Smart Dame this week. But then I remembered the letter Fiona Apple wrote her fans about her dog’s illness causing her to cancel her upcoming tour. And goodness, it is beautiful:

She’s a pacifist. Janet has been the most consistent relationship of my adult life, and that is just a fact. We’ve lived in numerous houses, and jumped a few make shift families, but it’s always really been the two of us.

I hate to bring myself into something so lovely and deeply moving, but I just got a cat and after only two weeks I think she is the most wonderful thing in the whole world. We watch TV together and I talk to her like she is my best friend. Fiona has spent fourteen years with Janet. I admire the fact that she was able to be so honest in such a public manner.

Furthermore, Fiona’s record The Idler Wheel is creeping up my Best Records of 2012 list. I am just as surprised as you are at how much I love it.
