Your latest Fiona Apple concert story: After a Los Angeles audience member started shouting out requests (which is a no-no), Fiona began talking about how sometimes we, as humans, need to get things off our chests. Then she told a story about how Rex Reed, the Observer film critic, once gave her father, actor Brandon Maggart, a bad review. “I’ve wanted to do this for a long time,” she said. “Daddy, this is for you. Rex Reed: You’re a cunt.” For reference, Rex Reed is the guy who said all those cruel and unnecessary things about Melissa McCarthy in his Identity Thief review. So, up to you on who to blame here.
