"Even in the nuthouse, they were afraid to take me in, because I’m Sinead O’Connor."

"It is a goldfish bowl... and I can’t get away from being me.... I want to be like any other person, but I’ll have to accept that I can’t be, because sometimes me being me hurts other people... It’s not fun anymore..."

But she will stick to her vow not to overshare online because, she wrote in another message, she wants to be known only for two things she remains proud of: “making music and fighting the Vatican.” Nothing more.

Very sad.

Insufferable twit grows tired of self.

She should have known that meeting someone over the Internet never works out.

Well, can you blame them?

The entertainment industry seems to have more than its fair share of borderline personality disorders.

Another celeb searching, scratching, clawing for something that only Jesus can provide.

Sad to watch.

I'd recommend taking up an interest in computer programming.

"sometimes me being me hurts other people"

I think she has "being be" confused with "what I do".

What she needs is a diet and exercise.

A borderline, all right. Childhood abuse created a mess of them.

It's hell to be one, and hell to live with one.

Not enough drugs in the world to ease that pain.

I hope the remnant of faith she expresses leads her to some measure of peace.

Oh, and what mesquito said.

I have great respect for her talent and wish her well. Her stunts aren't done for publicity or to hype the sale of records. She has a kind of integrity. Some of it is based on mental illness and confusion, but she is honest and honorable....She was beautiful when she was younger, but she seemed uncomfortable with it. Now she looks coarse and haggard and far from beautiful. Maybe that will lessen her vulnerability and simplify her life. I hope she doesn't end up like Whitney Houston or those other train wrecks. But fame and wealth are aggravating not mitagating factors when it comes to mental illness. Don't bet on a happy ending.

She took to her Web site last summer and advertised for a man. She was so starved for sex, she wrote, in very explicit terms, that “inanimate objects are starting to look good.”

I'm so glad our hostess found Meade using a little more discretion.

Meade said...

Ha. yeah.

Such talent chained to such a damaged psyche is painful to see. I wonder if it is a prerequisite that truly beautiful art most come from tortured souls. If so, I'm glad I am not that talented.

You could make a laundry list of great artist who are self-destructive. I guess we can add one more.

I thought she identified herself as a lesbian?
