SINGER Sinead O’Connor has pulled out of this Friday’s Late Late Show appearance with a tweet.
The star, who admitted on her website that she had ”quite the little crush” on host Ryan Tubridy, tweeted: “Have pulled out of L8L8. chat with researcher showed it wouldn’t be a safe situation for me to put myself in. Never saying more than dat”.
RTE confirmed today that she would not be appearing.
The mother-of-four wrote in the Sunday Independent on August 21 that she wanted a man.
And on her website she posted a follow-on piece - a letter to Ryan Tubridy saying she respected him for his sense of humour.
“I promise to behave like a lady unless you kiss me and then I can only promise I will melt and the ESB will have to shut the whole country off for the night and a day or so after.
“Fear not though, for I have employed my own Lebanese security team to keep me off men and they will have your back at all times. As well as taking business cards from any and all interested men in the studio be they panel, audience or crew.,” she wrote.
“Am wondering, in the meantime would you be a doll and do some explaining for me this week? Because baby you speak ' normal' AND nuts. That's why youre so special.
Also am writing in case your people miss my people on the phone between now and friday you will have the story straight from my own glorious mouth which is at present awaiting an implant. Stop that Ryan Tubridy you bold thing. I mean of the dental variety.
Please will you try to make the 'normal' people understand that anyone even remotely connected to the music business are so because we are intellectually and emotionally unsuitable even for criminality.
We are morons with 16 year old adolescent senses of humour, which are only made worse by attention being paid. We are as children whose unwanted behaviour should be ignored.”
In a lengthy letter that outlines her sexual preferences she said: “My father often said affectionately of me when I was a child " you could bring her anywhere twice. Second time to apologise. Never a truer word was spoken and it's what I want as my epitaph.”
And in detail she outlined her desires: “I don't want to never again have to wear a polo neck to hide love bites from my daughter so she won't know I love sex. I don't want to never be snuggled. Or told I'm gorgeous. Or have no reason to shave my legs.
I don't want to never bury my nose in a stubbly man's face again. I want the end of my nose red raw from sniffing smelly men's stubbly faces. I want my whole face and neck sore from stubbly men sniffing me!
But I need to finesse my requirements based upon this week's responses to my plea.
I want to 'make lurve'. Sweet and filthy LURVE. With sweet and filthy men. If u don't have both sweetness and filth don't apply. I want 'sweet lurve' with music on. Say it again Sinead .. Like u really mean it this time.. I WANT TO BE LURVED STUPID BY SWEET FILTHY MEN WITH MUSIC ON. Ok? We clear? Ahem... Good. Now I wanna know what music you'd lurve me with.
Im revising the language from ' humping' to 'lurve' because humping became misleading. Am a bawdy thing alright on twitter etc, and a joker, but in fact secretly I'm quite a good girl. Just naughty enough. And I wanna be 'lurved'
Any man wishing to make a case for himself must be between 38 and 55 (that's cus Ryan is 38) un attached, and aware that he WILL be dumped at the drop of a hat if either Ryan, Adam Clayton, or Robert Downey Juniour stake a claim.”
