Sinéad O’Connor retracts announcement - Prince...

Sinéad O’Connor retracts retirement announcement

The singer said her retirement announcement was a "knee jerk reaction" to some triggering media interviews...

https://www.nme.com/news/...nt-2963341

In other news, O'Connor has retracted her allegations of being abused by Prince, saying:

“I love Prince. Without him, I'd be nothing. I don’t like the consequences of being an untalented (and outspoken woman) being that I have to wade through walls of prejudice every day to make a living. Prince has shown me, that I'll never reach his calibre, even with all the contradictory statements I've given during my career, I'll never be able to pull off a feat such as changing my name to a symbol, and then reverting back to my name. Prince never abused me, I was the one abusing him."

EDIT: O'Connor did not say that about Prince, the part about retracting her retirment announcement is true though.

Let's see how many of the "it's possible", "I believe her", "Prince was a terrible person so I believe it" posters show up to apologize. This should be a fun thread. F every last one of you that pounced on him.

Or how many of the "she's crazy" posters show up to apologize and say that she's not so bad after all.

It's a weirdly worded statement. Is she being sarcastic?

I don't want to see her flog herself. Which that's what her words sound like to me. There's no joy in that. She has an illness that needs treatment. I'm pretty digusted by those who "gassed" her up and sent her out into the streets like this in the first place.

nahh.

It's no skin off my back... but I'm curious as to the priorities of maintaining this site based on past posts that got locked up. Must be a task. And all volunteer work. And so subjective.

Between this thread and the one where an orger claimed Wendy and Lisa introduced Prince to hip hop, I think some people either have questionable humor or can't read.

Between this intentional joke, and people just not reading articles then responding so itently that entire discussions center around something not in the source themselves... it's getting tedious.
