Irish singer-songwriter Sinéad O’Connor – who is looking a little differently lately – has taken to Twitter, as well as her official website, to find a man. And some of her requirements for a romantic partner are rather amusing.
"Am in desperate need of a very sweet sex-starved man," O’Connor, 44, wrote on her site this month. But sweet alone won’t cut it.
The singer also provides a list of particulars and deal-breakers: "Stubble is a non-negotiable must. ... Must not be named Brian or Nigel."
Many of the controversial star’s requirements are sexual in nature, but she’s unapologetic about getting graphic. "SO VERY VERY happy to be weeny insect chipping away at Ireland's sexual repression,” she tweeted.
Remember, this is the same lady who ripped a picture of the Pope!
New York Magazine highlights the best quotes from Sinéad’s search - most of which are too inappropriate for this family friendly blog.
However, thanks to her more G-rated tidbits, we learned that Dave Chappelle is her “dream man,” and she fancies Robert Downey Jr., and U2’s Adam Clayton. Her man must be no younger than 44, employed, snuggly, with “no hair dryer use.” And, naturally, no hair dye, after shave or hair gel.
Since her search for love began, Sinéad said she has gone from just a few Twitter followers to almost 2,800 (as of Tuesday afternoon).
And it does appear her plea has been effective: “ALL applicants will receive replies, but since there are literally hundreds of applicants, it may take a few weeks for me to respond to each one.”
