Birthplace: New York City

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Musician

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Tidal

Far from the safe, bland personalities projected by most young pop singers, Fiona Apple has been a bit of a pill from the beginning of her career. Releasing her first album Tidal in 1996 when she was only 19, she proved herself as difficult as a personality as she was successful as an artist -- speaking openly to interviewers about her rape as a young girl, and using an award acceptance speech as an opportunity to condemn the industry's star-making machinery (fair enough, but a somewhat untenable position for a successful, industry-made star).

In 1999 she released her second album, bestowing upon it a name that was an entire 90-word poem. A big hooplah was made about the unwieldy title, but the content of the record served to further solidify her standing as a serious musician.
