Sinéad O'Connor
BBC:
Her rebellious nature was mainly driven by resentment at the abuse she suffered as a child and her experience in a Dublin reformatory.
It was music that rescued her, unleashing a creative talent that made her a worldwide music star - but also a rebel prepared to be controversial and never play the game of being an image-led pop star.
With her elfin features and skinhead look she was one of pop music's most recognizable figures.
Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor was born on 8 December 1966 in the affluent Glenageary suburb of Dublin.

Re: Sinéad O'Connor, 56
Phat does it again! Wiki says 56, not 57. Family did not disclose the cause.

Re: Jimmy Buffett
Never was a fan. Though he was fairly liberal, his music idealized a white-dominant, paternalistic, colonial view of the tropics.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Well, he only had one song and it always made me think of a drunk, white, ex-pat, loser, stuck in the tropics...that vision just pops into my head every time I hear that song.

Re: Jimmy Buffett
He had a massive Parrothead following. Some friends of ours saw him in concert dozens of times.
Buffet had a massive estate in Florida. A tennis buddy of mine was living down there around 30 years ago and knew one of the groundskeepers, and they would play tennis on Buffet's court occasionally. My friend met Buffet one day when he caught them playing, lost his temper and completely lost his mind. Needless to say my friend never played there again.
