Fiona Apple Should ‘Shut Up And Sing’, Says County Sheriff’s Department

Fiona Apple’s arrest for possession of hash and marijuana at the Texas border appears to have grown into a far more serious story. The singer-songwriter publically blasted four officers for allegedly mistreating her during the arrest, though a spokesman for the Hudspeth County Sheriff Department has hit back in a pretty aggressive way.

According to TMZ.com, public information officer Rusty Fleming said in a rambling statement that Apple had threatened to make the cops “f*cking famous” as a punishment for their appropriate actions. The statement – directed towards Apple – reads, “First, Honey, I’m already more famous than you, I don’t need your help. However, it would appear that you need mine…Two weeks ago nobody in the country cared about what you had to say, - now that you’ve been arrested it appears your entire career has been jump-started. Don’t worry Sweetie, I won’t bill you.” The 35-year-old garnered critical acclaim for her 1996 debut album ‘Tidal’ and received the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in 1998. Nevertheless, Mr Fleming raged on, “I don’t know you but I’m sure you’re an awesome and talented young woman and even though I’m not a fan of yours, I am sure there are thousands of them out there, and I’m sure that they would just as soon you get this all behind you and let you go back to what you do best—so my last piece of advice is simple “just shut-up and sing.”

Since issuing the statement, Rusty phoned into TMZ.com Live to continue his rant. Fiona Apple is yet to respond to the comments.
