Sinead O'Connor is back on the scene, but woefully, the washed-up star, who once made pop music history with her hit "Nothing Compares 2 U," isn't getting attention for a new single, album, or tour. Instead, she's raising eyebrows for strange blog posts, one of which details how desperately horny and lonely she is. In a piece entitled, "Is Sinead About to Hump Her Truck?" she explains that she isn't getting any, so she's been driven to consider getting it on with "inanimate objects ... inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables." Oh no, Sinead, HONEY! (Side note: Um, hasn't this woman ever heard of a sex toy?)
Some may call it "TMI," "bizarre," or just a sign that the has-been has totally lost it, but my heart really goes out to her! The woman obviously has terribly low self-esteem.
I wonder, is this the result of once being uber-famous and now being ... well, not? Sinead writes, "Needless to say what I do for a living makes it hard for me to find men that only want me cuz they like my (legendary) arse." And I can understand that, but if I was to go all psychoanalytic on her "arse," I'd have to say it sounds like she thinks that's all she is -- a musician, a formerly famous woman. And I'm sure her skewed self-perception isn't doing her love life any wonders.
Making matters worse, the post also details all of the "requirements" her guy must have. Like he must be "hairy," but not use hair gel or a hair dryer or hair DYE! He must also have stubble! (YEESH -- is this some kind of wacky backlash to having her head shaved for so long? This woman is HAIR-obsessed, huh?!) He also must be "snuggly," but "wham-bam" (WTF?) and be a mama's boy. Oh dear LORD. Patti Stanger would have a field day with Sinead! I'm sure she'd tell her laundry-lists are a supreme relationship no-no! After all, you're not going grocery shopping for the perfect cut of meat. You're looking for a human being. (Which is obviously preferable over an inanimate object, right?) I wouldn't be surprised if the tendency to "require" all of these minute characteristics of potential partners has a lot to do with not really being happy with yourself.
That said, I don't think Sinead's necessarily mentally unstable; her blog post seems mostly like a cry for support. But sadly, it seems like unless she does learn to love herself a little bit more -- getting her mental and emotional "sh*t-uation" together -- Sinead is going to end up perpetually going on hot dates with her banana.
What do you think of Sinead's sexual desperation?
