Happy Birthday, Fiona Apple!

Posted by David Schmader on Mon, Sep 13, 2010 at 9:56 AM

Happy birthday to Fiona Apple, born on this day in 1977. Ms. Apple has made some very good music and will hopefully make more in the future. But visually, she'll exist eternally in the public imagination as the anorexic jailbait pixie featured in the video below, which'll whisk viewers back to that several-month-long period of the '90s when child porn/pederasty was played for stylish sexiness (with the young'uns portrayed as innocently willing), as opposed to our current era, when child/porn pederasty is played as moralistic dramedy (with the young'uns portrayed by grown-ups). Enjoy.
