Apple peels away pretenseThree words often used to describe Fiona Apple: sultry, minx, vixen. Apple most likely describes herself as real.
In the age of saccharine popsters like Alanis Morissette, Jewel and Sarah McLachlan, Apple has more in common with Sinead O'Connor, a fiery woman who spoke her mind beyond the three-minute forum of song.
Apple left the audience speechless at the MTV Video Music Awards when she accepted her "Best New Artist" award this year in an expletive-laced speech, quoting Maya Angelou and telling viewers to think for themselves. She's also been known to stop performances to put unruly fans in their place.
Apple brings theatrics and songs from her debut album "Tidal," to the Sheraton Waikiki Hawaii Ballroom Wednesday. Doors open at 7 p.m. Reserved tickets are $22.50, available at Connection outlets, or charge by phone at 545-4000 or (800) 333-3388.
