While Lady Gaga can publicly smoke marijuana on stage in the Netherlands, Fiona Apple gets thrown in the slammer for having hashish on her tour bus in Texas.
The 35 year-old singer's tour bus was halted at a border stop in Sierra Blanca, Texas, where authorities claim to have found hashish and marijuana in the vehicle. Apple - who is currently touring to promote her album The Idler Wheel... - was charged for possession and is currently being held at the Hudspeth County Jail.
Apple is scheduled to perform tonight in Austin, but there is no word yet as to whether or not she will have to cancel due to her legal issues.
Sierra Blanca hasn't been the most welcoming city of celebrity pot users, as Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, and Armie Hammer have all been previously arrested there for drug possession.

Lady Gaga praised marijuana as she lit up on stage in Amsterdam.
The 26-year-old singer told her fans she had cut down on drinking alcohol because she prefers smoking the drug and revealed it had been hugely beneficial to her music. According to The Sun newspaper, she said, "I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I've really cut down on drinking. It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music. It's like saying everybody needs to take a breath and it's going to be OK."
She also joked she was going to talk to President Barack Obama in a bid to make marijuana legal in America.
The eccentric singer recently had a tattoo inked into her newly-shaved head in front of a live audience as part of the launch for her new perfume Fame. Gaga had an image of a cherub wearing a crown etched into the back of her head at New York's Solomon R Guggenheim Museum and tattooist Mark Mahoney said the design is a nod to her Italian roots. The singer - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - put on a number of live art installation features during the evening to launch the scent, which included the singer arriving at the venue inside a replica of her perfume bottle, inside which she was asleep on a bed.
Tallulah Willis could be caught up in a nude photograph scandal.
Four pictures, which are supposed to be of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's 18-year-old daughter show her topless and holding what appears to be a marijuana joint, reports website RadarOnline. The images are now being shopped around media outlets for purchase.
Last year, the teenager was cited for underage drinking in the Hollywood area. Tallulah's two sisters have also been involved in controversy. Her 20-year-old sister Scout was arrested last month in New York for underage drinking and using a fake ID card. In 1997, the oldest of the girls, Rumer was one of four people in a hotel room in Aberdeen, Maryland in the United States when police officers came in and arrested one of the group for marijuana possession. Rumer was questioned at the scene but was not arrested and was never charged in connection with the controversial incident.
Snoop Dogg was detained in Norway yesterday after entering the country with eight grams of marijuana.
The "Drop it Like it's Hot" hitmaker reportedly arrived at Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand with the drugs, which were detected by a sniffer dog, and 224,500 kroner ($75,300) in cash, which is 196,000 kroner ($33,300) above the legal limit.
A customs official said the rapper was fined 52,000 kroner ($8,800) for the violations, and local laws state people carrying anything less than 15 grammes is merely punishable by a fine. Snoop - whose real name is Calvin Broadus - was in the country to perform at the Hove festival last night in the southern town of Kristiansand.
But it's not the first time this year that the 40-year-old rapper has been busted for drugs: he was arrested at Sierra Blanca, Texas in January at a border control checkpoint - the same one where country singer Willie Nelson was busted in 2010 - when a sniffer dog found marijuana on his tour bus.
Wiz Khalifa has been arrested for marijuana possession.
The "Black and Yellow" rapper was busted by cops in North Carolina after the officers pulled over his tour bus following his concert in Winston-Salem on Tuesday night and discovered 11.39 grams of marijuana after searching the vehicle, according to TMZ.com. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office has revealed Wiz was cited for possession of a controlled substance and then released and he now must appear in court to face charges at a later date.
This is the second time in 10 days Wiz - who is engaged to model Amber Rose - has been found in possession of cannabis. The 24-year-old hip-hop star was cautioned for the offense by police after he was discovered in a hotel room on April 21 smoking a joint following complaints from other guests.
Although Wiz - real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz - tried to get rid of the evidence by throwing the drug-laced cigarette out of his window before letting the police in, the officers recovered the joint and the musician then confessed to having another 3.7g of marijuana in his pocket.
Mike Tyson claims to have gotten a prison officer pregnant when he was in jail.
The 45-year-old retired boxer - who served three years of a six-year prison sentence for rape in 1992 and returned to jail for nine months in 1998 following a road rage conviction - revealed the woman in question did not have the child, but he refused to elaborate on any other details.
"I didn't talk about getting a prison official pregnant. Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby," he said when asked by ESPN host Rick Reilly what he has left out of his one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.
Former heavyweight champion Mike - who has eight children - also discussed the many drugs he used to take, describing the substances, both legal and prescription, as his "little friends."
"I just liked morphine, but I had to take a lot of it because it didn't stay in your system for a long time. And I'd have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there," he said.
Rihanna is spending her holiday in Hawaii to reportedly escape her frustrations over Chris Brown.
The "We Found Love" hitmaker has fled the US mainland for a vacation after learning her ex-boyfriend - who was convicted of assaulting her in 2009 - has got a tattoo of his new partner Karrueche Tran's face. Chris is said to be so besotted with the Vietnamese model that he opted for an inking of her on his left arm, The Sun newspaper reports.
However, Rihanna seemed to be less than thrilled at the new body art, as she let rip on Twitter: "Cuz of u I'm on some real f**k a n***a s**t! "U wanna be my main squeeze n***a, don't ya? So what n***a, I'm not tryna hear that s**t! (sic)"
"You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a 'Bob Miley' cake. You know you smoke way too much f––ing weed."
-- Singer/actress Miley Cyrus, at her 19th birthday party.

Like father, like daughter: Lady Gaga inherited her wild streak from her father. The "Edge of Glory" hitmaker - who famously dressed in a gown made of meat and once hatched out of an egg live on stage - explained her dad Joe hired a stripper to teach her the piano and used to enjoy al fresco romps with random women.
"He was having sex with girls under the boardwalk in New Jersey before he went to see Bruce Springsteen. He saw a lot of himself in me. My first piano teacher was a stripper. My dad told me later. I used to say to her, 'Why do you have such long nails?' She just said, 'Someday you'll understand why.'"
However, the 25-year-old singer credits her father with "kicking her ass" and helping her to stop using cocaine. "I was for sure addicted to coke. I got off it because my father called me out and kicked my ass. I didn't do it with people, I did it alone. But I regret every line I did," she said.
A new month means a new drug-related arrest for Paris Hilton.
The hotel heiress kicked off her weekend with a brief stint in jail last night after cocaine was discovered in her purse. The 29-year-old and and boyfriend Cy Waits were initially pulled over by Las Vegas police when suspected marijuana smoke was seen blowing out of their car. Waits, who was the driver, was later booked for a DUI (influence of drugs) while Paris was held for possession.
Hilton, who secured celebrity lawyer David Chesnoff as her attorney, was released on her recognizance a short time later without having to post any bail. According to TMZ, the socialite plans to use the “It Wasn’t My Purse” defense as her excuse.
