Gun-totin', Chronic-smokin' Hearse Initiator


Ms. O'Connor quit the music business 3 years ago to become a lesbian priest. After having announced that she was just kidding about the lesbian thing and the priest thing, she now announces that she was just kidding about the quitting the music business thing as well by releasing a 'farewell' CD, her second.

The CD appears to be in the vein of well-on-her-way-to-becoming-as-crazy-as-Tori-Amos-and-Sinead-O'Connor singer Fiona Apple, judging from its unwieldy title: "She Who Dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High Shall Abide Under the Shadow of the Almighty".

Apparently ignorant of the fact that she is famous not for being a singer, but for being insane, O'Connor announced on her website:

"I seek no longer to be a 'famous' person, and instead I wish to live a 'normal' life, could people please afford me my privacy. By which I mean I would like not to have exploition of my self or my name or anyone connected with me by newspapers. I also mean that (with love) I want to be like any other person in the street and not have people say there is Sinead O'Connor. As I am a very shy person, believe it or not.

"So I ask with love, that I be left in peace and privacy by people who love my records. My advise to anyone who ever admires a so-called 'celebrity' if u see them in the street, don't even look at them. If u love them, then the lovingest thing u can do to show them so is leave them alone and don't stare at them! ... Or make them get their picture taken, or write their names on bits of paper. That's pieces of them. And one day they wake up with nothing left of themselves to give."

A team of highly trained normal human beings is being dispatched to Ireland to explain to Ms. O'Connor that the best way to be treated like a regular person is not to release new 'farewell' albums every few years accompanied by deranged public pronouncements about yourself that you will immediately contradict.
