Singer/songwriter and enfant terrible Fiona Apple has gone viral twice in the past year for reasons not related to her newest album. The singer first stole headlines last November when she abandoned ship on the South American leg of her latest tour, The Idler Wheel. The admirable reason, according to a handwritten letter to fans on her Facebook page, was that Apple needed to stay home and nurse her dying 13-year-old dog, Janet. Another act of altruistic animal activism occurred last month when the singer released an affecting cover of "Pure Imagination" from the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. An animated Chipotle commercial feature's Apple's voice over a "dystopian" plea against the horrors of factory farming. This is all not to detract from the singer's other extraordinary machine, her fourth album, The Idler Wheel, which dropped last year. Tonight, she appears with the album's guitarist (and Dawes frontman) Blake Mills to the sounds of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Don't miss.
