Suddenly it’s sinking in how long ago the 90’s were. TWO decades ago! Nothing illustrates this better than the metamorphosis of Sinead O’Connor. In 1992 the skinny bald headed pop star shocked many when she appeared on Saturday Night Live and ripped up a photo of the Pope in protest of child abuse in the Catholic church. This weekend Sinead appeared in an Irish Music Festival with a sensible haircut, glasses, a cross around her neck, and forty or fifty extra pounds. (And she STILL likes to show her stomach.) Since she gained fame with her hit “Nothing Compares 2 U,” Sinead, 44, has had three husbands and four children and says she’s ”¼ lesbian.” Nothing explains her fashion choice.

    C’mon Janet, give her a break, she’s older with 4 kids, that takes a toll on a woman’s waist line. Nuthin’ compares to your 20’s.

    1/4 lesbian?

    Oh and she looks like she shoved herself into Madonna’s old castoffs and cross.

    Flash forward from 1992 to today, and she’d be lauded instead of blacklisted for tearing up the Pope’s picture to protest child abuse. Wish we knew then what we know now.

    She has turned into another person-Kim Jong Il.

    You are right Denise. I remember watching that episode of SNL when it aired live and thought she was a bit of an attention wh*re who just wanted to stir things up. I had no idea the meaning behind it and how right she was/is.

    Does she have three husbands that live with her and the 4 kids!?!? If she does, I am flying off to her planet.

    She looks like some sort of Televangelist. Jerry Faliwell maybe?

    Love it! Cleverly stated!!!


    “Nothing Compares To You” was a great song and she did it justice. However, I never ever found another darn thing that I liked hearing her sing. Plus, the few times I saw her on tv on read her comments, I was convinced that she was either slightly mentally ill or heavily medicated.

    How are you my friend? I’ve left a message on one of the posts. We were wondering if you went AWOL. Glad to hear you had a wonderful vacay so we called of the search party.

    The song “Nothing Compares to You” is actually about her mom. She had a tempestuous relationship with her & unsure if they ever reconciled before her mom passed. Sinead was probably in her early 20’s when this occurred & may have left her a tad unstable. However, 4 kids? Yah, I’d probably have a drug dealer on speed dial, next to pizza man.

    Greetings my little buddy. The vacation was a last minute kinda thing and we crammed a bunch of stuff in it. Most importantly…….lots of eatin !!!! lol!!!

    One of the diners we went to had Candy Apple Cheesecake. It was wonderful!!! Lots of carmel, a little bit of apple and a whole lot of cheesecake. I had to two pieces before I ate a salad!!! lol!!!


    Prince wrote “Nothing Compares To You” for a 1980’s band but they never released it as a single. When O’Connor sang it, she OWNED IT. You are right in that she sang it from the heart and to her Mother. Truly a great song.

    Candy Apple Cheesecake? Good grief. I think I just gained 5 lbs. reading Walt’s post.

    I also tried a double decker cheesecake. On top was Key Lime and the bottom was a mild lemon. Although those aren’t my two favorites, I tried my wife’s and ended up ordering me one. Poor wife just shook her head. lol

    You are correct, Prince did write it, you can hear Sinead mention in the verse “…all the flowers that you planted mama in the backyard died…”

    Anyways, both you & DENISE (you funny girl) got me foaming at the mouth over cheesecake. This is starting to sound like a Golden Girls episode & may end as a 800-Jenny moment.

    It’s no surprise that I have a big appetite and that’s why I have to walk/jog each morning. On really naughty days, I walk/jog in the evening too. lol

    a great talent and a true heart and soul:

    On an 4 October 2007 broadcast of The Oprah Winfrey Show, O’Connor disclosed that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder four years earlier, and had attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday on 8 December 1999.

    no one compares to her……

    @Pit BuLL LOVER

    Thank you for enlightening us about her health issues. I had no idea. Such a horrible disorder. Hope she has the necessary medication to help keep the disorder in check. That’s certainly something else that could happen to any of us.

    Congratulations again on your new furry baby!

  20. By Casonia Sade Logenberry and Hells kitchen Elisa your doing a great job on things you want to do but you suck on Italian food and you should had rocked it out and made yourself look even better! Taking on something you had no passion for but...You are stro

    Some people are Different and really move us and shake us up and get us thinking and Yes she can still sing and Before she did what she did..People really liked her and Yes she is hard headed and Pussy and Aggressive and she made her point and she did something that really pissed people off and she had her History and that is something that…I nolonger look at but in her Music..She can make me cry and that is the reason…I like her.

  21. By Casonia Logenberry..I would turn Hells kitchen out and those other people would lose and..I Would Win and Blow the other people out of the water and would kill them with kindness
    On August 21, 2011 at

    I think she is doing great for having 4 children and having children is the future for woman and…She is Rich and she is trying to help other people move foreward and she is still loved for her point of view and…She is helping the world in a positive and strong way.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
