We hope hope hope the thoughtful, beautiful, and ridiculously talented artist that is Fiona Apple isn't resorting to self-destructive ways…
And it seems Mz. Apple is raising the eyebrows of quite a few health professionals.
Nutritionist Dr. Fred Pescatore claims that weed is not usually a cause of dramatic weight loss (duh), and that Fiona has lost at least 30lbs recently!
Dr. Fred explains:
"She does look gaunt and pot is usually not the only culprit in that situation. It looks as if she is in a downward spiral and that may be causing her to be apathetic to how she appears."
Psychotherapist Jessica Aronson is more worried about Fiona's mental health, stating:
"I would guess she is numbing herself from something - most likely feelings. Being in the public eye and getting arrested for drug use brings attention to herself and highlights whatever difficulty she is going through. Her pictures certainly look alarming and concerning."
While obviously these are merely opinions and hold NO validity as to what may be going on with the iconic singer, we can't deny her waif-like look and recent behavior does seem indicative of deeper issues…
We just hope that if Fiona DOES need help, she finds it fast before withering away into nothing!
