Fiona Apple cancels tour to care for her dying dog


Many people might call in sick from work to care for a sick and dying dog. But what if your job was going around to cities and singing heartfelt, cathartic songs in front of thousands of heartfelt, cathartic fans? Would you just stop all that to go home and care for your sick and dying dog?

That’s exactly what Fiona Apple did.

She writes, “I will not be the woman who puts her career ahead of love and friendship. I am the woman who stays home and bakes Tilapia for my dearest, oldest friend.”

Anyone who has loved and known the love of a great pet, especially a dog, completely understands Apple’s decision. You can always go back out on tour.

    Just like your pet, the fans will always be out there waitin’ for you. Family comes first.

      While I don’t really get the whole “treating a pet like a member of the family thing” I can appreciate (having lost family members in accidents etc) how it might feel to someone with said view. And I can respect putting one’s personal needs of any kind before ‘the job’. And if anyone trashes Ms Apple for this decision that speaks to what kind of person they are not her (and it’s not a nice one)
