Interviewer:   You said in an interview years ago: “Everything that happens to me, I experience it really intensely. I feel it very deeply.” You’ve spoken a lot about honoring a spectrum of feelings. Do you still feel that way or have you hardened at all?

Fiona Apple:   “I have gone back and forth and I have saved myself from the hardening. There is a song on the "The Idler Wheel….” ‘Left Alone’, where I say, “I don’t cry when I’m sad anymore.” There was a period of time when I was not feeling things. It was terrible. Sometimes it’s good to grow a tough hide– for press stuff, maybe. But when I hear people say that they won’t get a dog because they had one when they were a kid and it died, or that they don’t want to fall in love because it hurts too much, I’m like, “fuck you.”. I really believe in completely being naive and having high hopes when meeting someone new. I can kind of re-do my stupidity or my naivete. It pisses me off to think that we’re conditioned to push away bad feelings and to think that anything that’s uncomfortable is something to be avoided. When things are really bad nowadays, I recognize the value in it because it’s me filling my quota– it’s going to make my joy more intense later.“
