Fiona Apple's fans will have to wait, because she has matters of life and death to attend to at home.
The singer has canceled the South American leg of her current tour to care for her dying dog, an almost 14-year-old pit bull named Janet.
The announcement came in the form of a handwritten letter that had been scanned and posted to Apple's Facebook page and official website.

Singer Fiona Apple was arrested in the Texas border town of Sierra Blanca on Wednesday night.
According to a press release issued by the Hudspeth County Shefiff's Office, the 35-year-old singer was found with .01 lbs. of marijuana and .010 lbs. of hashish after officers pulled over her tour bus and asked passengers to disembark when their dog "detected the presence of concealed humans and/or controlled substances emitting from the inside of the vehicle."
Apple "freely admitted that the controlled substances belonged to her and she was placed under arrest by U.S. Border Patrol agents and detained," the press release continues. Police officers arrived at 9:30 p.m., and she was detained in Hudspeth County Jail.
On Thursday, Apple posted $10,000 bond and was released from jail, police say.
