Queen of the Day Sinead O'Connor: Nothing Compares 2 Yams Parry Ernsberger

There’s a line in Empire Records where a young, feisty Reneé Zellweger snarks at one of her coworkers, “Well Sinead O’Rebellion! Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior!” This was, of course, only a few years after Sinead O’Connor tore up a photo of Pope John Paul II during her live broadcast performance on Saturday Night Live. I think it’s safe to say that the lady is missing a few screws. Strong in her convictions, yes, but still missing a few screws. Yet, for some reason, shock-inducing celebs like O’Connor, Tiger Blood Charlie Sheen and umbrella-wielding Britney are totally fascinating to me. Because they are bonkers. And we’re all a little bit bonkers, are we not? It’s unfortunate for famous folk though because when they have a moment, there’s approximately 3,948,302 paps there to capture it. Alternately, when I have a moment, if I can get through it without calling my boyfriend in a tantrum of tears, it’s a pretty good day.

Anyways, Sinead’s gone done been bonkers again. But this time, in a way that I can totally (pretty much) understand. O’Connor has been married four times, most recently to an Irish drug counselor (a drug counselor from Ireland, not a counselor of Irish drugs only … if those even exist) whom she split from last year. Now, at age 46, O’Connor (who also hails from Ireland) says:

“You’re not allowed to talk about sex in Ireland. The last four boyfriends I’ve had, their mothers have refused to meet me because I wrote articles about sex. Now I have a rule – I don’t go out with anyone whose mother isn’t dead.”

I think we’ve all been there to some degree. At least the hyperbolic aspect of it. There’s a chance that she’s totally serious, and if that’s the case, you go, Glenn Coco, Sinead. After four marriages at 46, you’re bound to be a little picky, right? I mean, I guess you could also be less picky and see where that gets you, but if Sinead wants a motherless husband, I’ll bet there’s a 75-year-old anarchist somewhere out there for her. There’s also bound to be an online dating site for that kind of thing these days, I’m sure of it. “Motherless Mingle”? I don’t know, though. That has major Mommy Issues written all over it if you ask me. Which you didn’t.

But she didn’t stop there:

“I recently read of a woman in America who married and regularly humps her truck. I don’t yet own a truck but I’m beginning to understand her head space … My shit-uation sexually/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good as are inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables. I tell you yams are looking like the winners.”

I have a friend who hasn’t had sex in a full calendar year and she stares at half-decent dudes like a child of famine set before a caged steak dinner, so again, I get the hyperbolic aspect of it. And again, she could be totally serious, so gird your yams, people. Regardless, I salute Sinead for staying crazy after all these years and finally going for what she really wants in a lover. Which may actually just be a vibrator and a therapist.

  1. One more issue is that video games are normally serious in nature with the main focus on learning rather than fun. Although, we have an entertainment factor to keep your sons or daughters engaged, each game is normally designed to work towards a specific group of skills or program, such as mathematics or research. Thanks for your posting.

  2. I have realized some essential things through your blog post post. One other point I would like to talk about is that there are plenty of games out there designed particularly for toddler age young children. They consist of pattern identification, colors, creatures, and shapes.
