Default Fiona Apple cancels tour to stay home with dying dog

If you haven't seen this, read the text of the letter she wrote explaining her decision. But be ready, I went through a lot of tissue.

This one made me cry so much that Saxon ran into the room, jumped on the couch and licked my face, which made me cry more because I'm so proud of him and don't know how I'll ever live without him!

I just teared up and I only read the headline, I don't know if I should read the rest

I literally got the first paragraph down and began bawling like a baby.

I bawled. I'm blaming it being that time of the month.

Ahh *snuggles Maddie*

To be honest I don't know who that is but I admire her and would do the same thing! <3

It's really well written, and worth reading, just be ready with the tissues.

I'm not particularly a fan of her music, but I have a lot of respect for her now.

Can't get behind her music (I want to - but it lacks the visceral passion of similar artists like Florence that I love) but I have to say I respect her immensely as a human being.

It takes a lot to say that to the world; and to say it so eloquently.

Crying. I know of this woman but that right there just gave her my upmost respect. What an amazing woman and especially to say it to the world when most people don't look at their pets as family.
