It seems that as long as Fiona Apple has been with us, she's been as infamous as she has been famous: tear-streaked interviews, public confessions, punking an entire awards show in a single acceptance speech. All her crazy behavior earned her a rep and at the same time, made her an icon. This week Apple releases the first single off her forthcoming The Idler Wheel , and so we revisit the moments when Fiona's been a bad, bad girl. Things escalated, with the singer crying and staring at the V. Every time she returns with a new record is a welcome surprise — making every album release a triumphant comeback.

It seems that as long as Fiona Apple has been with us, she's been as infamous as she has been famous: tear-streaked interviews, public confessions, punking an entire awards show in a single acceptance speech.
All her crazy behavior earned her a rep and at the same time, made her an icon. This week Apple releases the first single off her forthcoming The Idler Wheel , and so we revisit the moments when Fiona's been a bad, bad girl. Things escalated, with the singer crying and staring at the V. Every time she returns with a new record is a welcome surprise — making every album release a triumphant comeback.
In late , Apple was at an impasse. She had recorded Extraordinary Machine with producer Jon Brion but was locked in a disagreement with her label, Sony, and was starting to consider other lines of work she might be better suited for.
The album finally saw the light of day in October , three years after Apple began recording it. Leave it to a barely post-teen Fiona Apple, at the height of her acclaim, to react to accolades with unbridled fury. Fearful she was verging on becoming a sell-out and popular for the wrong reasons, Apple stepped behind the podium to accept the Best New Artist statuette at the MTV Video Music Awards, and rather than thanking God, her parents and manager, she let loose an invective still remember 15 years later.
Damning the music industry and urging viewers not to idolize her or any other artists, Apple then offered this advice "This world is bullshit, and you shouldn't model your life on what we think is cool, and what we're wearing and what we're saying.
What better way to politely flout the conventions of the music industry than giving your album a word long title? Though "Criminal" was the fourth single off her multi-Platinum debut, Tidal , it might as well have been the only one — the Mark Romanek-directed video is how the world remembers Apple best: all of 19, lithe and lolling around a poorly lit tract house in her underwear. Controversy ensued — critics assailed the singer for the creepy porn overtones, comic Janeane Garafalo mocked her for being too skinny.
In a fit a feminist sedition, Apple claimed she disrobed in order to exploit herself on her own terms, before anyone else had the chance to. By Jessica Hopper. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter.

Fiona Apple reveals how she really feels about J Lo stripping to her song
Chinami Oda. An equal attention will be paid to both a video and its music, which is often dismissed in the analysis of music video. The analysis will be employing feminist theory from film studies, which involves the investigation of voyeuristic pleasure, spectatorship and subject-position,2 and scrutinises the signification of 1 McClary, S.
Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Press, , p. Journal of the Royal Musical Association, Vol. Semiotic analysis will be employed as another analytical method. This method seems to be the best for popular music analysis, as suggested by Peter Dunbar-Hall3 and McClary. She is a successful American 3 Dunbar-Hall, P. It brought her to the mainstream with its controversial contents which features a scantly- clad Fiona Apple undressing as the song progresses.
The public received it as an overly sexual, pornographic video, and this is the only video in her career which deals with sexuality.
Besides, the analysis of the music and the lyrics will reveal the hidden meaning of the song, which could not be discovered by watching the video alone. In the video, the reference to her personal life is noticeable. In the video, Apple was extremely skinny because of her eating disorder, which stems from rape.
From then on, interviewers circuitously broach the subject. I was really concerned, at the time that she understood that we wanted to do something provocative that she was ok with it. I pulled a lot of photo references of the level, the degree of eroticism and sexuality that I thought it might be interesting to portray.
I showed it to her, said this is the kind of stuff that I think it would be interesting to do, and are you ok with this. And she was fine with it. Chart 1. Throughout the 13 McDonnell, E. A very small source of light is used to show all the objects in the video. It makes the video thrilling and enhances voyeuristic pleasure. Then a stuffed animal, a violet car, bottles, and chairs are dimly lit up. In this setting, a stuffed animal seems unsuitable, as it is usually associated with children.
There are a few people around her, but only their bodies are on display, which makes her presence powerful. The red eye effect, which is featured all the way through the video, gives a home-video quality and it enhances the sense of voyeurism. Dibben maintains that when the body is arranged as a display directed precisely at the viewer, it makes a one-to-one relationship between onlooker and object.
Then , the camera shows Apple and other people laying on the floor, only limbs are shown, and some empty bottles, a blue shoe and half-eaten pizzas are scattered around the floor, as if the video was shot after the orgy party. Next, Apple appears in a bathroom, sitting down on the floor languidly.
In the chorus, she appears inside a closet, which is opened by a man the camera does not show his face. She sits holding her knees, raises her head with a suspicious look on her face.
She wears her long hair with 15 Dibben, N. In the video she is represented as both a grown-up woman and as a rather vulnerable, adolescent girl. On the other hand, she is also portrayed as rather a pubescent girl, especially in the closet scene. In this section, the video is rather static and confined, showing nothing but events in a dark room. Even in the chorus, the move is restricted while music becomes energetic. The flash is sound made by used. The video Chamberlain. The listener into the And it's a sad, sad camera shows empty song.
I want to suffer for my sins The singer sits on the I've come to you floor; a woman 'cause I need behind her is taking a guidance to be true bath.
And I need to be She keeps staring redeemed toward the camera. To the one I've sinned against Because he's all I ever knew of love Apple sits on a Verse 2: music Heaven help me for kitchen counter gradually becomes the way I am wearing only a kinetic with slightly camisoles and raised register vocal underwear.
She takes her Save me from these camisole off evil deeds before I carelessly. The camera shows only above her chest. Some lies till I'm good cuts of a bathroom, enough for him and a pool scene are I've got a lot to lose inserted. She sings and I'm bettin' high passionately and so I'm beggin' you stares the camera.
The shots of ever knew of love Apple with another man, smoothing her hair down, are inserted intermittently. Then of the song; Apple way a TV appears from the sings loudly. Apple I've got to make a sings inside a car, play with an uneasy look to make my lover and she is scantily stay clothed. She moves so what would an restlessly inside a car. The play TV shows Apple, to make my lover naked and it is stay seemingly being so what would an recorded. The video a criminal shows another man, And I need to be his back towards the redeemed camera, sitting in a to the one I've sinned chair watching Apple against and a man.
The final shot is a bath with some oranges floating in the water. The scene change is very rapid. First we see Apple sits down on a kitchen counter, only wearing her underwear. She roughly takes her underwear off, and looks at the camera nervously.
Her bone-thin body is emphasised as she takes off her clothes. Here again, her thin body and vulnerableness, implies a child. He first appears in a bathroom cut, just a second, during the second verse.
Figure 2 As a result of the singer watching constantly towards the camera, and a man Apple is facing in the video never shows his face, the viewers could identify themselves with him. Apple sings passionately wearing a bathing suit. The sin is implied in the lyrics and in the video water can signify something to purify it.
In the next scene, the camera shows Apple with another man who is naked from the waist up He is supposedly the same man from the bathroom scene but we have no clue to tell us this.
At , in the chorus section of the song, we are greeted with a new scene; Apple takes snapshots of another woman Figure 3. This is the first cut where the singer is unconscious of the camera and we cannot find others to identify with. The look between character to character according to Mulvey, is used in narrative film to achieve a reality by eliminating the presence of the camera.
By showing the look between characters, the spectator of the video momentarily loses the scopophilic pleasure. Figure 3 Around , in the short instrumental section which features the piano, a TV appears from the floor, with snow on the screen. Around , as a bridge starts, the singer appears inside a car, which appeared in the first cut of the video.
She only wears a top and a pair of panties, looks anxious, as if she is under duress. At , the video shows the photos of Apple printed by the aforementioned printer - although the image is not clear, these photos could be from the video itself. Soon after that cut, Apple appears within a TV screen.
In the TV she is in a bed and screams towards the camera. We see that the video we are watching is being played on a TV within the video. Kaplan says that music video is increasingly self-reflexive, and seeing the video we are watching being played within the video is not uncommon in music video. At the end of this section, the TV screen becomes snow again, and Apple appears in the same bed she was in the TV screen we can see the same duvet cover. In this section, she lies herself on the bed with another man.
Besides, there is a man sitting in a chair, his back towards the camera, watching them. This section is very easily related to pornography, and the spectator now sees Apple as a girl in a sexual video. The analysis of the music mainly deals with the voice, since it is said that the vocal draws the listener into the body of the artist, especially in popular music, 29 and the analysis of timbral details, shade, textures and tonal colour of the voice reveals the deeper meaning of a song.
London, Fontana, , p. Apple has a distinctive contralto voice, which is uncommon when it comes to a chart topping female pop singer and makes us imagine a mature, voluptuous woman. Therefore it could be said that her voice itself is the signifier of the body.
She has a wide vocal range, and in the song she sings impeccably from Bb2 to Bb4 except in the falsetto, where the highest note is F5. Then again, all of these show that she has a well-developed singing technique which heightens the meaning of the lyrics, to communicate the meaning. It is not, as Barthes declares, a signifier of the body; he even states that the breathing is likely to be a mystical art.
The absences of the tongue, the glottis, the teeth, the mucous membranes and the nose — as Barthes describes — fail to create the sense of spontaneity. Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, , p. In particular, the voice itself adumbrates both femininity and masculinity, but at the same time it can be said that it is not both a female and a male. The lyrical voice: 41 Fiske, J. Robert, C. London, Methuen, , p. Andrew, R. New York, Routledge, , p.
