Fiona Apple was busted today in Sierra Blanca, Texas, not far from the Mexican border, for having hashish on her tour bus. According to TMZ, the famously volatile musician—who also was in possession of a small amount of pot—is currently behind bars at Hudspeth County Jail. In recent interviews surrouding the June release of her fourth studio album, The Idler Wheel..., it sounded as if 35-year-old Apple, who shot to fame when just a teenager with her 1996 album Tidal, had settled down a bit in terms of her substance use. The New York Times, for one, reported that Apple said she’d given up “heavy drinking.” But it’s possible that Apple—like many problem drinkers, not to mention Lady Gaga—went on the ill-advised “marijuana maintenance” plan, and is now paying for it. That said, Apple’s not the first artist who’s been pinched by the cops in Sierra Blanca, who apparently have a thing for weed-loving tunesmiths: Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg have both been cuffed for drugs here in the past.

In darker periods, I would sleep with some guy in the hopes of making him love me. It would work for a couple of months here and there, but I could only keep ‘sloppy drunk girl’ at bay for so long.
