Day 49

by angisullins

We salute you, Fiona Apple. I’ve cancelled all and all to be with my own swamp-breathing angel.

From Huffington Post:

Fiona Apple has canceled her South American tour stops in a very public, and very emotional way.

The singer, who was set to begin the tour inPorto Alegre, Brazil on Nov. 27, took to her Facebook page to post an image of thefour-page hand-written letter she wrote to fans.

“I can’t come to South America. Not now,” Apple wrote in the letter. “[My dog] has Addison’s Disease, which makes it dangerous for her to travel since she needs regular injections of Cortisol, because she reacts to stress and to excitement without the physiological tools which keep most of us from literally panicking to death.”

Apple continued, “If I go away again, I’m afraid she’ll die and I won’t have the honor of singing her to sleep, of escorting her out. Sometimes it takes me 20 minutes to pick which socks to wear to bed. But this decision is instant. These are the choices we make, which define us.”

The singer wrote many paragraphs about her dog, Janet, whom she adopted when the puppy was just four months old.

The original letter, as well as the transcribed text as posted to her Facebook page, is featured below.
